Although primarily working as a vase painter in Ancient Greece, Demetrios is berated for his lack of resolve and ability to keep a cool head in a crisis. One day, he is suddenly struck by lightning and transported to Tokyo in 1964, the first year Japan hosted the Summer Olympics.

More than accommodated by a family who simply excuses him as a harmless foreigner, Demetrios ends up bringing the knowledge he has gained from the modern era to his own time period whenever he returns after being zapped by lightning. As he repeatedly travels between the two eras, Demetrios learns to impress his fellow villagers and begins to stand up for himself—all just in time to become stronger and organize and participate in his own Olympics back at home.

Warning! The whole review might be a lie. It also contains spoilers, not that it's worth mentioning anyway.


First of all, I have to thank mr. Yamazaki Mari (the original creator) for deciding to use a great cover of Lord Kayneth El-Melloi Archibald's theme as an opening song (a.k.a. Rossini's William Tell Overture opera). Original song music video link below:

Due to my Greek blood, combined with my impatience to watch the Tokyo 2020 opening ceremony, this show seemed irresistible for me. It was the real deal - it screamed "time for a sarcastic review vol 2".

The story is amazing - it's about 420 BC born statueman ...

Olympia Kyklos is probably the best contender for dark horse of the Spring 2020 season, and maybe even all of 2020. It was a show that was heavily overshadowed by several household and hyped up titles, and as well as its short length and unique nature. This show is quite unique as it experiments with several types of animation and techniques that you don’t often see in TV, such as Claymation and use of fabric materials, so for one to enjoy a show such as this one, it requires a certain taste and a little bit of open-mindedness.

The show follows the timid and cowardly, yet ...

Mixed Feelings
Extra Olympia Kyklos is something I wanted to check out because of the mix of mediums of each episode. This anime is a relatively short viewing, about 2-2½ hours, and it's nice to sit back and watch something REALLY different for once.

The songs at the ends of episodes are funny and pleasantly informative. Just thinking about how much research was put into this show, and seeing how much footage they shot for this, just adds just shows everyone's compassion to make this show a reality.

However, maybe it's not your cup of tea, since each episode follows the same formula and possibly something that doesn't ...
