Another OVA that (allegedly) was cut short in production, loosly based on an equally cut short manga by noted mangaka Tony Takezaki; this time directed by the man behind M.D Geist. Of the alleged planned 9 episodes, what is here is another beautifully violent slice of animated fiction. Over the course of the five episodes, Genocyber racks up what could possibly be the highest prospected kill count of any Animated feature, i assure you the title is no exaggeration. I would of course be be-miss to not mention the soundtrack, which leads to probably one of the most jarring disconnects between visual and audio you ...

Genocyber is considered to be the most explicitly grotesque and gory anime of all time. Having now seen it, I can't say I disagree. It was produced in 1994 by studio Artmic, best known for producing most of the Bubblegum Crisis franchise. It finished airing just a few days after yours truly was born.

It's another product of the 80s era of ultraviolent cyberpunk OVAs. The premise is pretty simple. Man creates some kind of new bioweapon, the Genocyber. It unsurprisingly gets out of control and the End Times™ ensue. I've lost count of how many 80s OVAs I've seen at this point where humanity meets ...

I had nightmares for days after watching this anime! It also graphically portrayed violence against children when an attack chopper's chaingun ripped into the bodies of two children that accompanied the main protagonist. I cannot in good conscience recommend this anime.

The story was convoluted, and the art style is way too gruesome, despite its main draw for the story. The characters did not react to various situations that would seen realistic.


Too many flaws were present in every character, including the main character. This makes them too stupid. I don't think that others would find this anime enjoyable because the story is completely lost in ...
