Synopsis

Photon Earth is a young and gentle boy with superhuman strength and "Baka" (meaning "idiot" in Japanese) scribbled on his forehead (apparently by his troublemaking friend Aun Freya). One day, he finds himself engaged to the beautiful fugitive pilot Keyne Acqua after writing "baka" on her forehead. And that's the least of his worries as he must protect both Aun and Keyne from the evil Papacharino, who seeks to steal the secrets of "Aho" (another word for idiot) energy from Keyne's grandfather's ship.

Jeez, where can I begin? Photon is a lot of things. It's funny, it's cute, it's often times extremely perverted, and it's even pretty creepy here and there. The animes opening scene, for example, involves the beautiful Ms. Acqua running from the evil Papacharino while stripping off all of her cloths in order to ditch a tracking device. Not perverted enough for you? Well things get worse from there. To be honest, if it weren't for the perversion this might actually make for a great family series, but that's a whole other subject all together. The series is mostly about the young Photon Earth and read more

Think Star wars, then imagine Luke Skywalker being a immensely strong but retarded kid who only cares about food, big boobs and keeping promises. Imagine Darth Vader as a pervert in striped underwear. The stormtroopers are cute and optimistic cheerleader blobs of lard. And Princess Leia actually looks good...

Then add a couple of other stuff, and you get Photon! A hilariously funny and still epic story set in some kind of fantasy future.

Animation
Decent. The animation is not the best, but the character designs are great! Nice background details.

Sound
Great music, some kind of 80's rock anthems which I like. Dope voice acting.

Story

I first came across Photon when a close friend of mine wanted me to watch "The Ding Dong Song" Anime Music Video (a must watch). I was curious about what Anime was being used in it and come to find out it was Photon. After a lot of searching I finally found Photon and got to watch it. It is a very interesting and weird Anime. It is a must see Anime.

This is by no man's a serious anime. So don't take it seriousley, but it is pretty damn funny. And it's one of the amy animes that was apart of my "Summer of Anime" back in 2006.... Sigh*...

Anyway, the story is about a little kid named Photon Earth. He has super strength, but is a kind soul, and he has women crawling all over him. Don't worry this isn't one of those guy with tons of girls animes, but it is still a little perverted, the amin villan is a creepy dude if I remember right. But its full of fun futureist like stuff, zany read more
