In the distant future, monsters and inhumans roam the land, and the ruling Evil King seeks a human woman to bear him powerful, force-adept heirs. Non offers herself to the Evil King in order to save her village from Ape Clan raiders, and gives him twin sons, Loof and Jin. She and her sons are exiled by the ungrateful villagers, however, and Non's companion Nue (a Demon Clan member changed into a wolf for disobedience) takes Loof to be raised by his father, the Evil King. The Evil One's Queen Parome despises humans, however, and her malevolence towards Loof deepens...
Oh, Genma Wars. This has to be one of the absolute worst anime to every be released to the public. It gets a resounding 1 in almost everything. The story in nonsensical, the animation is so poor that people teleport instead of walking. It's just bad, bad, bad.
But then, why does it get a 10 for enjoyment? Well, my friends, flip on the dub track to find out. Suddenly, a show that was merely bad now descends so far into the depths that it somehow comes back around in another category. To put it simply, it's so bad that it's funny. And it's not that the actors are bad. In fact, two of the main roles are played by Richard Epcar (Batou from GITS) and Wendee Lee (Faye Valentine). No, it is the script that is so bad. Such choice lines include "When I get back, I'm going to beat that baby out of you." and "This flower is your mother." Truly, Genma Wars is a classic that all should enjoy. And when you're done watching it, you can torture your friends with it. It's the gift that keeps on giving... kinda like herpes.read more
Maybe I give this anime such 'high' ratings because I can see the potential in it. The story itself, while not original, isnt bad. Its planets of the apes with wizards. I think that maybe if this show laid off the rape/ sex and had better dialogue it could have been much better. The chatters are fair. They have the potential to be great, but the writing doesnt really allow them to develop in a normal way. Things are rushed and never explained. The art is the main thing that turned me away from this originally. The character designs are poor and the animation is just sad. I think if you can manage to look past all the bad things, there is a half decent show here. If youre looking for some time to kill and youve never seen it and have nothing else to watch then what the heck, give it a chance!read more
