Synopsis

Aum Shinrikyou is a Japanese doomsday cult founded by Shoko Asahara in 1984. It carried out the deadly Tokyo subway sarin attack in 1995 and was found to have been responsible for another smaller sarin attack the previous year.

The cult created its own studio called MAT (Manga, Animation, and Team) in 1991 for the sole purpose of recruiting otaku into their cult. This 10 episode OVA mostly focuses around Asahara himself being Christ. All 10 episodes were sold separately during its initial release but a compilation is available on the cult's official YouTube channel.

Background

Asahara was executed on July 6, 2018 along with other members for homicide and terrorism.

Mixed Feelings
It was an interesting experience which gave me an impulse to spend few hours prior to explore the background of this anime.

Also made me think why at first sight smart people like Seiichi Endo or Tsuchiya get involved in something like this and I came to conclusion ...

It was apparently distributed as a tool for religious solicitation, an anime about a cult that carried out terrorism in Japan.
Although not added to my list, there are other Aum Shin's animations, which are similar in content and low-brow.
It's so incoherent that it's ridiculed on Nico Nico Douga.

Needless to say, it's a shady religious anime.
The voice actors are also amateurish, and Akio Asahara is too beautified, too different from reality, and feels out of place.

Even though it's a religious anime, it's not the quality of Happy Science or Soka Gakkai, but the low quality of University Circle.
It's not worth watching.

I'm using a translation site, so ...

Imagine this:

You're in Sunday School. The parents are busy doing their prayer service and preparing a buffet for lunch, and you and the other retarded kids are sent to the back room where you won't disturb them. One of the parents who run the Sunday School service turns on the TV and puts in a VHS tape they bought, thinking this is cartoon that focuses on the teachings of Jesus Christ. It's so blatantly obvious that it's religious propaganda, and produced as such a low quality (like a 90's cartoon). That's what it feels like. Except that this isn't about Jesus, but rather this is ...
