Genocyber is famous among hardcore otaku as being one of the goriest anime ever made! Does that make it good? Unfortunately...not really. Genocyber had decent art, a cliche but workable premise, and a writer that was completely insane, but had some good ideas rattling around somewhere deep in the back of his brain. Unfortunately, this 3 part OVA is one giant train wreck where each portion is progressively worse than the last. The first part was bad, but you can almost see what the writer wanted to do and you can tell he IS trying. The second part is much sloppier, abandons all effort or read more

Although most viewers who have seen this anime, Genocyber, either degrade it as poor quality or average, I would personally say that this anime can be seen as a masterpiece. It tells of a story of a young girl who forcefully is manipulated by science and her life changes forever. She must face her own internal memories, as well as those who could plunge the world into destruction. Eventually, man is too greedy and in the end, the world is nearly destroyed because of his arrogance and his miscalculation of his own intellect, and that he brought Genocyber into the world. This humanoid would virtually read more

Released in 1993, Genocyber is a heavily reworked adaption of a short lived and abruptly cancelled manga of the same name.

Although the series itself as a whole is a fairly unwieldy, inconsistent mishmash of episodes, the arcs split into their own selves result in some shades of genuine genius clashing with unfortunate mediocrity.

The first (and most well known) episode consists of two sisters, one that has artificial limbs and the other incapable of speech. Although there are elements of Akira and other grim dystopian works of fiction, this particular episode succeeds in creating a gritty, nightmarish vibe with easily the nastiest and most violent read more

It's a shame that Genocyber is seen as a single series of OVAs when there are three separate stories told over the five of them (1, 2-3, 4-5). If I were only reviewing the first OVA, i would give it a score of 9/10, because I think it's incredible. I saw it when I was 10 or 11 years old the first time and it marked me for life, and seeing it again recently some thirteen years later I can appreciate its awesomeness. Not only is the animation superb and the transformations of characters gruesome and original, its occasional use of CG and live-action footage read more
