Preliminary Spoiler
Jan 21, 2009
After watching this, I just felt that I simply HAVE to write a review for this masterpiece. Why is this a masterpiece, you ask? Simple, because it's the only Sci-fi/Horror anime which ever made me laugh so hard.

The story... Wait, what was the story again? Apart from whatever that was said in the synopsis, there is pratically no storyline at all, it's just about a bunch of girls working for the police fighting off the 'Ancients' alongside a guy who was forced to wear a suit developed by his father to fight the 'Ancients', and how much killings they saw on the way while delivering ...

[Death of an Anime Viewer]

Ivan was your average, everyday, normal viewer, he had just finished his latest anime series, and was searching for a new one to watch. While, reading the reviews of several shows on MAL, he came across the infamous Mars of Destruction.

He had heard many horrible stories, regarding this particular animation. He read the reviews and noticed that many people called it "the worst anime ever.”

He thought to himself, “This can’t possibly be true. Even the worst anime has one redeeming feature. I have to see this for myself.”

He immediately typed in the words “Mars of Destruction” in Google and ...

Today I had the sudden inspiration to write a review on the unfathomably glorious and unparalleled masterpiece that is Mars of Destruction. Here is a breakdown of why Mars of Destruction is THE most epic anime ever created.

The story is one of the best I have ever seen. Martians invading the Earth for absolutely no properly explained reason? Wonderful! The main protagonist, Takeru, having to fight these creatures and endure the pain brought about by the mars suit which he wears? So dramatic! And the female characters are part of a well designed special alien fighting group called the AAST with Takeru, and they ...

This anime is...not very good. In fact...it's sculpted out of shit. The only reason somebody could ever watch this show is because it is the most lowest rated peice of trash on MAL. Heck, that was actually the reason I watched it.

Story: Well, I've seen powerpoint presentations that had more plot than this anime. Even a video of someone playing tetris may very well have more plot. Unfortunately for this anime, its "plot" was the best thing about it.

Art: Seems as though the developers took every single opportunity they had to NOT move the characters...not move anything in fact. The beginning credits seem good as ...

This anime seems very bad on the surface. Blood shows up as a solid red substance that explodes into a pillar out of a character’s neckhole. This anime has that dumb shaky camera thing that was used in the movie Cloverfield, except nobody is filming this, so what the fuck? It’s not just the camera thing, characters look like they’re vibrating whenever they try to walk or move any part of their body. One possible explanation that I came up with is this: in the futuristic world of this anime everyone has seizures when they try to move. This is probably due to inbreeding that ...

"Give me back my precious 19 minutes that I've wasted!"

Wow, talk about low quality production. I hate to rate a show badly but I feel the scores I gave it is justified. Actually, this OVA does not even deserve to be reviewed (I end up wasting a lot more minutes typing this than the 19 minutes for the show). However, just so that hopefully no one else will suffer what I suffered, I'll write down my sincere thoughts about this anime only known as Mars of Destruction.

At first, the synopsis reminded me of the epic PC game series known as "Doom". Monsters from Mars... invasion ...

"A catastrophic success"

Brought to us with deeply enchanting thoughts of science fiction and a twist of quirky humor, Mars of Destruction demonstrates exactly what the animation industry lacks these days: a sense of sarcastic Japanese comedy. Why do I say Mars of Destruction exemplifies the epitome of funniness? Everything about it is so terrible that you are chuckling, frustrated, or amused at the overly large level of appalling abominations.

Just looking at the premise and seeing how several teenager females and a high school male managed to progress into supers soldiers fighting big, bad, giant alien monster; the audience is prostrated with a highly conceptual ...

I simply could not resist writing a short review for what is truly a one-of-a-kind anime. Mars of Destruction is unlike any anime you have ever seen before; it is an indescribable experience that is hard to put into words, but I will do my best.

Why does this anime receive a 1/10? Because we are not allowed to give 0/10 ratings. Mars of Destruction isn't just bad, it is hypnotically bad. Fascinatingly awful. Spectacularly dreadful. Not a single imaginable aspect of this 20 minute OVA was done even remotely right. The fact that something this laughably stupid exists is an absolute anomaly.

The plot? There ...

Mars of Destruction is the lowest rated anime on this website. People are constantly talking about how terrible it was so I had to check it out. I thought that it couldn't be as bad as they were saying. Now that I've finally seen it, I was pleasantly surprised. I now know that it is exactly as bad as they say. Make no mistake, this is hands down the worst anime I have ever seen. But at the same time, I recommend it highly. Why you ask? Let's go in and find out.

The story is about aliens attacking. And then a some guy tries to ...

This is a review compiled by the many members of the VIA (Value In Anime) Graveyard Division. All members who have worked on this review are mentioned at the bottom. In addition, this review will also contain a “Value in the Anime” section detailing life lessons and values that make this anime worth watching.
Mars of Destruction is an anime often said to be the worst anime ever made, an opinion backed up by it's abysmally low score. Despite its many flaws, however, there are still reasons to take the time to watch it.

Story: This is one of the best parts of Mars of Destruction, though ...

How does a trio of incompetent 12-year-old girls and an inept 15-year-old Guyver knockoff defend the Earth from alien invasion?
By stretching your credulity to the breaking point. This is 19 minutes and 25 seconds of your life that would be better spent giving yourself a circumcision with a rusty tin can lid.

I beseech my readers, please; bear with me and finish reading this review, so that you too can take part of this experience.

"The wisest man is he who understands that he understands nothing".

I have embarked on a journey. A journey of understanding, set upon by all sides by the naysayers and those who seek to cause me to stray from my path. I stand firm to the end though; it is I who choose my own fate, and entangle myself in this intricately and masterfully crafted web of deceit, betrayal, and the meaning of life itself.
The story kept me mystified and engaged up ...

It was worth watching just because now when I watch good anime I can appreciate it more.
Since as you no doubt know, this is a piece of trash. It was obviously designed by a 10 year old boy who had a really influential father and therefore managed to get it animated. I see no other way how anyone would ever fund it's creation.
I only watched it since it was the lowest rated anime in MAL, which undoubtably the only reason you're here reading the reviews.
The Story is a 1 because it has no story, or if it did it didnt make sense.
The Art is a ...

Highly recommend! Very shitty! Two thumbs down but only twenty minutes so worth. A cheaply made rip off of NGE. No character development. You finish and then look for the next episode but nope...
But the plot twist at the end was something else!

MoD is a 19 minutes OVA by Idea Factory. I watched this because I saw some people talk about it, so I decided to give it a watch to kill time. After I watched this I couldn't stop laughing at this awesome anime. I swear, if this was a comedy OVA I would definitely give it a 10.

First, let's start with the story. To put the story short, it's about Martians, known as Ancients, invanding the Earth and a team called AAST are trying to stop them. Something like that. The story was weird and confusing, but it was the best thing in this OVA, ...

I'm afrain i'm gona have to be the 2nd person to also give this a 10 overall...and yes its well worth spending more time reflecting on it tah it took to watch haha

Story: (I dont care what anybody says! this WAS origionally intended as a searies!!! nothing can be this bad unless its intentional!) ok yeh, umm, first its necessary to grasp the f**ked up storyline, so watch it before you read this coz no synopsis can substitute for that - i think it was something like martians who are actually earthlings (but humans actually evolved on mars) come to earth on a spaceship ...

By now, I think it's fair to say that Mars of Destruction is one of the most incompetently put together anime of this current millennium, if not of all time. As a result, it has become somewhat of a meme in its own right; A punchline of sorts. Whenever a friend asks you for a quick and probably painless bad anime that they can laugh at for a bit, this is probably your go-to choice from gut instinct alone. As such, it's been widely mocked and brutally analyzed to kingdom come. So, why make a review of it? Simple; because if you know me, you ...

Lurking on MAL, I found this anime's page. After seeing it's rank score I decided to give it try since it has just a short 20min- episode. "It can't be THAT bad" is what I thought. And I was right! Don't get me wrong, it is bad, but is nothing more than that. It's not the worst thing ever, it's just bad!

The story isn't actually so horrible, but it's kind of cliché. Aliens invaded Earth and they form a special force to defeat them. But hey! This is a short anime! It has less than 20 minutes and with that time, you can't ...

i don't even know what the fuck to say about this show it was absolutely terrible and i wasted 19 minutes of my precious day watching this piece of shit, animation is garbage, sound is shit, only reason i'm rating it a two is because it is a slight improvement from their other shit show, this sent one of my friends jumping off a 10 story building, i cried, i don't know what to do with my life anymore, my other friend slowly peeled all of their skin off with a potato peeler which all happened because of this god forsaken anime.

but is that fucking ...
