After watching the sublime beauty that was Mars of Destruction, I figured it was impossible for Yoshiteru Satou and company to top themselves. Somehow, they managed to do just that through Skelter Heaven, possibly the single greatest work in the history of any medium of film. A truly nerve-bludgeoning and relentlessly exciting masterpiece.

I remain perpetually amazed by how magnificently Satou keeps the tension up; there is not a single moment in this 19-minute OVA that isn't operating at 100%. Throughout the duration of this relatively short episode, the audience is presented with enthralling dialogue, a galvanizing plotline, exhilarating action, and heartbreaking tragedy. At times, I read more

For anyone who has watched and completed Mars of Destruction and thought it was the worst thing you have ever laid your eyes on, I (and probably anyone who has seen this) invite you to experience the joy of wasting 20 minutes of your day and watch Tenkuu Danzato Skelter Heaven. I was completely blown away at how terrible Skelter Heaven really is... it was so terrible that its funny, 10 minutes later and I'm still laughing

I could bore you with how terrible the animation is, or how poor and lackluster voice acting is, or even how they managed yet again to skip a plot read more

From Idea Factory, the creative minds that gave us Mars of Destruction, comes Tenkuu Danzato Skelter Heaven. I use the term creative minds loosely when it comes to anything from this studio. About the best I can say about this anime is, well its better than Mars of Destruction.

The info page says this anime is based on a game. I have never heard of it but I will take their word for it. Perhaps playing the game would have made the story make more sense. From what I can gather, five cute and huge breasted girls who also happen to read more

From the genius that brought you "Mars of Destruction" comes..."Skelter Heaven"!

Yoshiteru Satao...That is a name that sends a cold shiver up the spine of any anime critic. This guy isn't just a bad anime director, he is THE bad anime director. Everyone has a director they personally hate. The famous anime reviewer Bennett the Sage has stated that Masami Oobari is the worst director of all time. Oobari is BAD, he is REALLY bad, but he doesn't even compare to Satao. Even the second worst anime director: Iko Suzuki with his 1,2,3, punch combo to the testicles ( Sleeping with Hinako, DearS, and Dark Cat) read more

10 of the WORST Anime of All Time

There are plenty of bad anime out there. But only a few shows are downright unwatchable. Ugly animation, nonsensical plots, and boring characters sink many anime, but only some fail in every possible way. Here are ten of the worst anime you'll wish you'd never wasted your time on.
