Yuko Kusaka is a Japanese journalist sent to Brazil to do a report on the gold rush phenomenon that seems to be making many people rich from night to day. Rumors say that among the many "garimpeiros" (gold diggers) currently on the Amazon forest, there is a Japanese known as Rio Baraki. Reaching their destination, her crew member is promptly attacked and she is raped as a warning to stop their work and return immediately to their home country. Determined to do her job, she stays and finds out from the attacker that he is none other than Baraki, a white haired muscular man with a large scar on his back. Later she discovers that his real name is Keisuke Ibaraki. Once a promising quarterback, he ended up falsely incriminated by a powerful organization known as GPX.

Hard to fully understand what the hell I just watched. The dvd is an import with really bad subtitles. When I re-watch this years from now, I will turn off subs and just watch it raw and create my own dialogue. Reminded me alot of Dog Soldier at times.

Animation was pretty bad for the most part. Lots of nudity, but not well done in terms of stunning visuals. Violence was good at times with a couple scenes that were reminiscent of Riki-Oh, but not quite as gorey. Very dated as far as animation styling.

Story was ??? Not good, from what I could make of it. ...

I have reviewed MANY obscure, terrible anime on this site. However, this might be the holy grail of shitty exploitation OVAs! Remember those ultra violent OVAs with tons of pointless nudity from the 80s and 90s? They were dirt cheap to license overseas and thus they flooded the early anime market in many countries during the 1990s, including the US. These are the classic terrible anime like MD Geist, Angel Cop, etc. There exists an OVA in this genre with an excellent animation budget, but was never licensed overseas because it was SO shitty that even the buzzards like Central Park Media wouldn't touch ...

With 80s anime I feel I cannot do them justice since I was born way past the decade. But since I am looking for the worst anime shows The Wounded Man doesn't get any good commentary from me at all.

Before starting the first impressions when I saw the DVD cover of this thing was "is this a B-film right and/or Porno right?" and I wasn't too far from it. Some spoilers ahead.

The story of the Wounded Man is just an incomprehensive mess and that tries way too hard to be a tragic, mafia, porno with some historic points of what was happening in ...
