Karin, a DNA operator from the future, is on a mission to change the course of History by stopping Junta Momonari from becoming the Mega-Playboy who fathered 100 children and led to the overpopulation of the world. But Junta is no playboy; in fact he is allergic to girls. But when Karin shoots him with the wrong DNA-altering bullet, he starts sporadically becoming the Mega-Playboy capable of charming any woman. Karin must try to restore the situation to normal before the change to Mega-Playboy becomes irreversible.

I enjoyed the first 10 episodes and then it turned into a Dragon Ball Z feel to it that turned me off right then and there. At first it seemed great, different kind of story, funny and full of drama. And then it did a complete 180 and kinda ruined it for me, the extra episodes (13 - 15) was more of the same DBZ style plot line.

DNA^2 is... well, its good. Simple as that. If I had to say one thing about it from the get go, it would have to be that the art style and animation are it's strongpoints. If you want to know more, then by all means read on.

Story – To be honest, this is the reason I originally decided to watch this. It’s actually an interesting premise with the main character’s allergy to girls and his mega playboy alter ego threatening the future from overpopulation. The parts where his allergy is exploited are probably some of my favourites. Though, the whole mega-playboy thing is kind of read more

Time for another nostalgic review! Today we look at a 1994 harem anime with an intriguing plot, but really stupid execution. Unless you are an older fan born before 1993 or so, I will place a wager you haven't heard of this series. It has been almost completely forgotten, but honestly that isn't such a tragedy. This is DNA^2.

The future is dangerously overpopulated, so scientists worked to find the mysterious cause of the population explosion that occurred in the late 20th century. It turns out it is largely the fault of 1 man-whore called the "mega playboy" who possesses genes so good that women read more

The story is a bit odd, but is pretty good and is like any harem anime, silly but good enough. This anime lacks a lot and I have to say it really does shame the manga. This anime is very rushed and most plotlines are skipped, however it does have it's moments and the anime can be just one big joke. It's funny from time to time, also wierd, but it's not to bad.

For when this was made the art is definitely top notch.

Soundtrack is good nothing special. Japanese voices read more
