In times of olde, God gave mankind the ten commandments, and a message that has been lost to the centuries. In the present, Koichiro Kamishiro is a modern day Indiana Jones who scours (and often destroys) ruins for hints of the past, until one day he runs across a box filled with two crystal triangles. Having inadvertently run across the key to God's lost message, Kamishiro suddenly has a lot to deal with including assassination attempts by the KGB and the CIA, aliens hell-bent on destroying the Earth and the love of several women!

I'm on a quest to watch the shittiest anime known to man -- that's how I stumbled across this peculiar little OVA. Low ratings? Action anime? I was preparing myself for a hyper-violent cheesefest akin to M.D. Geist, but it seems I got something different instead.

This is not a great anime. But what separates this from the bad? This anime has effort and passion behind it.

Story & Characters:
The story and characters are this anime's weakest link. Imagine the over-the-top and convoluted sci-fi/political thriller of Metal Gear Solid crossed with the stock characters of an Indiana Jones film minus the originality. That's basically all this anime ...

This is probably one of the best so bad it's good movies out there, anime or no. I encourage you to watch it blindly, but keeping in mind that it's pretty bad and hilarious.

It lures you in with a pretty basic Indiana Jones style plot, the hunt for the secret 11th commandment. As the story progresses, it suddenly escalates in stakes and scope multiple times, until by the end there's a full global war over a floating pyramid containing literal capital g God (who is a bug). The animation isn't amazing, but it isn't terrible either. There's a lot of effort and passion put into ...

If you're looking for a long, detailed in-depth review this one isn't for you because there isn't much to say about this OVA besides the fact it's just a bad anime, and a VERY bad one.

The plot is extremely confusing: a lot of things happen but many of them are unexplained or barely developed, and most of them don't make any sense. The first 15-20 minutes are somewhat acceptable because it may look as an interesting adventure/mystery story with mystical elements, but then the remaining 70 minutes of nonsense come in like a train.

Visuals are nothing special, with mediocre sketches and character design and ...
