Synopsis

The rural American west is the setting for this OVA, in which a bizarre and brutal attack on a NASA base in Arizona attracts the attention of a French secret service agent, Monsieur Lassar, when a dead CIA agent is found floating on the Seine in Paris. Lassar is convinced that these two events are related, and sets out to prove it. His investigation leads him to film star Lamia Vindaw and a vampire cult that may be far more vicious and dangerous than its eccentric exterior makes it seem.

Vampire Wars is under an hour long but tries to squeeze two hours of plot in to it's run time which means it's completely baffling, a bit confusing and absolutely crazy which also means it's hilarious fun.

This is a mature anime from the early 90's and anyone who's a fan of this era of anime will know exactly what to expect: Violence, gore, naked chicks and a very funny and over the top English dubbing job. The animation is slick and professional although it's clearly on the lower budget side of things and i was laughing so hard at some of the dialogue and the ...

It's a mystery noir. With 50 minutes (+5 minute ED song), plot is clearly rushed, but connects all the characters. Kuki & Lamia get some character depth, & join/betrayal all jump through quickly, acceptable considering the shortness, but really could've benefited from longer development of the complex mystery. It's far from your usual vampire films, and more a mystery on a multi-country & grand scale.
I suggest English dub + English sub. Occasionally they are different, offset, or both. It gives nearly 2x the plot information, and quite funny seeing how much they diverge in meaning. After ~40min I laughed uncontrollably for the remainder. It brilliantly ...

(In)famously considered among the worst of the worst of anime OVAs - and with good reason. It's terrible. The story is ridiculous, the main character is way over the top, the 'acting' is raucous and forced, the action scenes make the SyFy movie of the week look well choreographed, the dubbing (yup, I watched it dubbed, so sue me) was unnecessarily R-Fifteened, and it just sort of...ends...abruptly. Leaving you wondering, wait, that's it?

Yup, that's it.

But all of those qualities (and more) are what make some people actually enjoy this. You see, ...
