A lot of similarly themed anime fall into obscurity for a reason. An earthquake destroys the city, everything falls into chaos, and some group comes together to save the day. The thing that separates this from all the meh stuff is the interesting ish and somewhat unique characters. The art is pretty damn good for 1993, and the animation is mostly smooth and nice looking. I think the background music was decent, as it didn't distract from the film like a lot of those 90s soundtracks do. The English dub also isn't half bad. There's not really any nudity, and violence is minimal, but I ...

I don't have a huge amount to say about this OVA.

It was well animated, I liked the characters. I have to say that I couldn't NOT see 'Gene Starwind' from Outlaw Star every time I looked at the main character. Must be a previous incarnation.

Mixed Feelings
A Rambo clone, a drag queen, a yakuza nun, a militaristic priest, a suit-wearing samurai, reincarnation, exploding heads, religious mysticism...you'll get all that and more in a mere 45 minutes with this early '90s OVA that just flies by with a brisk pace, well-done animation and a decently satisfying ending. I can't deny that this is the Chinese food equivalent of entertainment, something that you'll forget all about and leave you hungering for more very quickly, but it's fun while it lasts and fits the criteria nicely if you're looking for a quick fix of anime excess from the good 'ol days.
