In this one we have more of the usual classic eighties plot.
Post apocalyptic earth with few survivors here and there. In some place, we find two sole survivors of a race that are entrusted with a special jewel and obviously powerful that makes the bad ones get mad over them and try to get it at all cost, naturally and usually through sending their subordinates. You know about the rest of the story, more of the same. The animation is good and well suited and definitely breeds 1987 in it. The story though absolutely not impressive, is entertaining, doesn't have plot holes, it's read more

This 1987 OVA is about some survivors on a post-apocalyptic world trying to find some jewels or something, and there's aliens maybe, and giant mechs...because it's the '80s. Honestly, I don't really know what it's about, I saw it raw, and kinda thought it was more fantasy until the mechs came into play. This is one of the great many old school anime I've never heard of that I tend to find while doing some digging, and this I discovered within the last month or so. It's got a typical art and animation style one would expect of '80s anime, so looks good enough, even read more

Is is "Le Deus"? Or is it "Ladius"?

The answer is: Doesn't matter what you call it. Either way, it's pretty bad.

It's like they had a checklist of every cliche of a 1980's anime, and just went down the list. Post apocalyptic world with a mixture of sci-fi and fantasy elements? Check. Giant robots? Check. Viewer-insert hero character that pilots the robot? Check. Cute, loyal sidekick girls that follow viewer-insert hero around? Double-check.

Although, if you jumble a whole bunch of cliches together, read more

Le Deus is basically about the main character, Riot, trying to find a source of unlimited power called Rido before the villain Kaiser can. Along the way, Riot and his companions clash with Kaiser's troops in both mecha and hand to hand combat.

I wouldn't really classify this anime as a mecha-heavy one. There are certainly a few mecha moments along the way but most of the story takes place with Riot and his companions traveling in their amphibious vehicle. The main mech battle in this OVA however was the highlight of the show.

Plot is not one of the OVA's main attraction points. read more
