Synopsis

Loosely based on L.F. Baum's novel, The Wizard of Oz. Original manga done by Itsuki Natsumi.

A nuclear war has killed most of humanity and split the USA into six warring states. By 2021, a legend has grown up about the fabled city of OZ where everything still works. Scientist Felicia sets out in search of it with the mercenary Muto and android 1019. At the end of the quest they only discover a military base and a madman.

A mercenary was hired by a girl to bring her to the mythical Oz (a paradise) where her missing brother supposedly lived. Accompanying them was a cyborg sent by her brother. But Oz was not the paradise it seemed and her brother was not as sane as he was smart.

Despite having nothing at all to do with Oz and having the production values of, well, a 1992 anime OVA, there's some pretty funky stuff in this movie that makes it interesting to the point that if trashy late 80s/early 90s sci-fi is your thing, it's worth checking out. The second episode is much more interesting than the first, even if the ending isn't exactly gonna blow your mind or anything.

For some reason there's an actual transgender character in the story and a frank discussion about it, even going far enough to use the word dysphoria and everything. I mean, it's handled about as well read more

Only watch this show if you're bored or yearning for a 90's anime. The characters are lacking, the story seems forced, and on top of that it's average 90's looking. The only plus side is that it's only an hour short.

The story throws you into mid-scene of apocalyptic earth with 60% of the population dead from nuclear war, but you don't know why. The relationship between each character has no reasoning behind it. Just from these facts alone, the show already sucks.

I had to continuously scroll through the second episode to get to the end because that's how bad it was. Do not read more

Starts off strong in both episodes, but can't really land in the second. It's about a girl named Filicia Epstein's quest to find her brother. Her uncle is killed when a plane crashes into his house, and a bioroid emerges from the wreckage. Also, there's a military guy who's given more focus overall, but is mostly a generic action dude.

It's pretty violent, as expected and desired from a 1992 action OVA, but the most interesting part is the psychology of a bioroid named 1019. They have a male body, but they are based on a woman's personality and, it turns out, they have that woman's read more

I'm really glad these early Madhouse OVAs are finally getting subbed. Last summer it was Download, and now it's OZ.

OZ is a two-episode OVA purportedly based off of The Wizard of Oz. I say purportedly because the connection is pretty flimsy. Instead, we've got a sci-fi thriller set in a post-apocalyptic North America. A young girl and her bodyguard set out on an adventure to find her brother, who supposedly rules over the mythical land of Oz. Except Oz is actually a weaponized fortress and the wizard is an absolute madman.

Along their way, they come across an android who aims to acquire humanity. And read more
