Saiga Riki-oh is a man with a strong sense of justice and a knack for brutally killing people (understatement). He can be distinguished by his supernatural strength and the "Six Pointed Star" (Star of David) on his right hand. He has been sent to prison charged with assault. Shortly after entering the prison he has already made a name for himself as someone you don't want to mess with. Riki-oh punishes and helps those who deserve it, which catches the attention of the higher authority figures of the prison.

"Riki-Oh: Toukatsu Jigoku" covers the first arc of the manga, the "Prison Arc". The original manga which ...

Today we are looking at a fairly obscure 1980s anime that is only remembered thanks to an awesomely terrible Chinese movie adaptation. This adaptation from the 1990s is one of the only Chinese adaptations of a Japanese manga/anime to ever exist and it was BAD, coming across as more of a spoof than an honest adaptation. However, the spoof was actually far superior because unlike this piece of shit, it didn't take itself seriously!

Story and characters: 2/10

I watched a very low quality sub. The res had likely been truncated/adulterated even further down to 480x360 to create a small file size. (appropriate low quality badness. this aint no rolls royce OVA) no idea where i got it or who made it.

The story and realism is farfetched and over the top but it's stylish and everything is presented in a way that communicates a cause/explanation. (It's kinda like American wrestling actually...) It's one of those things that might not 'make sense' because its over-exagerrated but it does an excllent job fooling you into going along with it and being believable because of it's ...

This series adapts the Prison arc in the manga. Well it says it does it only really adapts the first 5 chapters and then just kinda ends.

The series is as stupid as it looks. If you can see the similarity between Fist of the North star its because the author was an assistant of FOTNS author.

The series is about the Male character trying to find his family right. Thats the overall story. Its set in a dystopian future. But this was made in the 1980's understand so even if its called Dystopian future, floppy disks are capable of saving/destroying the world type dystopian future. ...

If you like mindless gory violence set to a 1980s soundtrack, then “Riki-Oh: Toukatsu Jigoku” is for you. From start to finish, this 48-minute long OVA is packed with blood, guts, torture and death, leaving little room for much else.

The gist of the story is that Riki-Oh Saiga, a mysterious man with superhuman strength, is arrested and put into prison for killing someone. Why he kills this person isn’t made clear in the anime, but according to the synopsis here (which is likely based on the manga) it’s because the person killed his girlfriend. This prison is filled with people who enjoy killing. The prisoners ...
