It’s a great study for animation students and something I’m definitely going to study myself when I get the time. The premise of a spam email that actually kills you sounds like dumb fun. But it loses me with the main character trying to assault his boss within the first five minutes and how much xenophobia is in the movie.

Even his love interest ends up being a “evil Chinese woman”. I’m not going to lie and say that ...

Download is an earlier Madhouse work that up until last week (at the time of writing), had never been translated. Well, now we've got some subs courtesy of Burger. We can finally watch this 50-minute OVA how it was meant to be viewed: in VHS quality with solid yellow subtitles.

To be honest, it's not great. The story, which centers around an email that kills its recipients, is largely forgettable. The main character is an unlikable sex-crazed teen, and he's accompanied by his formulaic pals Stripper Girl, Tsundere Sister, Gangster Pals, and Nerd Boy. This page tags the show as sci-fi and psychological, but the latter ...
