The Solnoid race is long dead, annihilated along with their enemies in the final battle at Sigma Narse. But their descendants survive on Earth, and have now inherited the sad destiny predicted so many years before.
The year is 2085.
The third world war between East and West has reduced the cities of Earth to mountains of rubble. The mechanical killing machines created by both sides now ruthlessly hunt down the remnants of humanity. Old hatreds between human factions prevent an effective resistance, and the only hope for survival rests in a desperate plan: evacuate the survivors to Mars Base. There they can rebuild and plan the liberation of the home world.
Among them, one young woman carries the guilt of her father`s hand in the destruction of civilization. Unknown to her, she also carries the key to a possible salvation. As destiny draws new friends and allies to her, a new Gall Force is born to rise up against the coming destruction...
Let's be real, we all like having a big anime lists. I mean, if my MAL had a thousand entries, I’d feel like a king every time I enter a forum. We all want the biggest anime d!ck, but watching a lot of shows means watching a lot of garbage--and that’s easier said than done. However, there are some shows that are prime real estate for pointless consumption that only slightly fry one’s brain: and that is, of course, terrible 80s OVAs. And Rhea Gall Force is one of these shows. To demonstrate how easy this
jawn is to watch: it is on Youtube, it is only an hour long, it is English dubbed (meaning it is easy to watch in the background while gaming, drawling, ect), and it’s speed can be easily increased--meaning it’s runtime can be as low as thirty minutes.
When I watch these terrible OVAs, deep down, I always hope to find a hidden gem that will make me look like Albert Einstein when I bring it up in conversation. Barefoot Gen is a nine out of ten and it can be found on Youtube--so anything is possible. However, Rhea Gall Force is no Gen. The story is the kind of vanilla sci fi one would expect from the 80s: robots take over, Yada Yada, humans threatened, Yada Yada, and Russians vs everyone else. The girls in this OVA aren’t even that cute. The last 80s OVA I talked about, Cosmo Police Justy, I gave a four just because the main girl was cute. This OVA did not even have that. To add to the complaint, the main girl from Rhea was also vaguely annoying. The only aspect of her personality I can describe is that she is the protagonist--if you watch this you will likely know what I mean. The other characters were just as bland, not really much else to say.
Overall, if you want to seem all cool and retro savvy, then give this a watch. But if you are an actually human being with a life, then you are better off living that life. I only checked this out because after writing about Cosmo Police Justy, I got reminded to continue my search for hidden gems, which translates to me wanting to beef up my MAL account. Regardless, Rhea Gall Force… not good.
Btw, I have a twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/infinite_fiend) where I analyze anime live (and also play melee). I'd be flattered if you'd check me out and say "hey" in the chat. I'm very cordial and open to hear what y'all got to say. Hope to hear from you. Bless.
The 1st short movie of the Earth gall force ´ saga in 1989 , Wich strange enough is said not to be part of the 3/part ova earth chapter.This is the 1st installment that plays on earth and the animation is still 80´s but bit more inproved, good music soundtracks and the char. in there are as i previewed gall force earth chapter 1 till 3 are reincarnations from the other movie's.
