Christopher "Chris" Chiaki is an easygoing guy who keeps failing his college entrance exams well into his mid-twenties. His days are occupied with Kendo practice, visits to his family's shrine, and dreaming of his high school reunion. When his spirit is suddenly transported to the world of Byston Well, Chris becomes Garzey's Wing, a legendary holy warrior. The Metomeus tribe summoned him to help liberate them from slavery, but unfortunately, Chris has no knowledge on how to be a holy warrior, and moreover, only has an incredibly dull sword which he salvaged from a corpse.

To make matters more complicated, there is another Chris who is still in the normal world! He cannot control the events in Byston Well, but is tied to the fate of the other Chris. The young man must struggle and adventure in a world of magical creatures and mysterious foreigners.

Don't get me wrong, this anime is a steaming pile of cow poo. But, if you come into it knowing that, and watch the dub, it's a hilarious experience, kind of like watching Birdemic or the Room. It's so bad that you can't help but laugh at it. The voice acting is constant monotone yelling, the animation is awful, and the plot is nonexistent. They use made up words and never explain what they mean, almost like they're talking in simlish. It's objectively horrible, but it's hilarious. Definitely watch with a group of friends and get super drunk while you do it.

Mixed Feelings
This OVA is not remotely good from a serious point of view, but it made me laugh more than I have in a while. It speeds along too fast for you to understand, the plot is sub-par at best, and you don't get a good feel of the characters at all. Yet, it's one of the more enjoyable series I've seen.
This is one of those that you watch when you just want a good laugh, or when you're hanging out with friends. It makes no sense, but you'll be rolling around on the floor in laughter, mostly due to confusion.

To be quietly placed in the same drawer as Haruhi Suzumiya labeled "Cultural artifacts overhyped by 00s anime fans because their childhood media environment was completely different."

Totally understand that someone might like this if they had memed all the bad line reads to death over the years. Totally understand why this was such an interesting oddity in a different time and place.

I get it, but it's not that time and place anymore. It doesn't appeal to me. The anime was uninterestingly bad. The dub was uninterestingly bad, albeit with a few chuckle-worthy line reads here and there. That's all it was.
