Synopsis

Meet Galan, a Russian spastic geek who`d do anything to be a real, live samurai. But that`s just an impossible dream... or is it? When his friend Natsu, who is a successor of Japanese emigrants family, gives him the gift of an ancient sword, strange events unfold, and even stranger people drop out of the sky to attack. Now Galan must overcome his ineptitude and join a bunch of beautiful women in a wacky romp through a kingdom that time forgot. Hey, what could be better?

You completely miss the point of this anime. COMPLETELY.
It's not just another parody OVA with bunch of fanservice.
It's a USSR and Russian culture parody. So, for haters it does not count as worthy, but we Russians (and I think Russian culture lovers) like it very much. Not all, but most of us, who is not an ill hooray-patriot and can laugh upon its birthplace.
I am not a patriot (who said wapanese?..), but I still like Russia, so thematical jokes I found sometimes funny. For example, this anime.
It is good. It is really good.

Story: 9. An ordinary tale about neophyte-samurai turns to become a crazy read more

Ok all I have to say about this OVA is one thing.

What..the..!#$%

This would have to be one of the most random anime that I have ever seen in my entire life, even more random than Paranoia Agent. But I have to admit that this was a pretty funny show and it made me laugh at several scenes throughout both episodes and I really enjoyed it. So I am going to give this OVA a 10 for being so funny and for being so random.

Ever heard of the saying "It's so bad, that it's hilariously good"? Well, I guess you can say this is one of those animes.

Story 7/10
So, when you read the synopsis for the story at first. It sounds completely ridiculous, right? But, when you actually watch the anime and story unfold, it's hilarious. It's about a guy, Galan, who is obsessed with the samurai lifestyle and even wants to become one if possible. When his friend, Natsu, gives him a ancient sword as a present, strange events start to happen (i.e being attacked and his friend asking him to marry her). Now it is up to read more

English Dubbed

Story
Pro:Simple and straight forward
Pro:had some okay/cheese lines/jokes.
Pro:Ending was done in a nice comical manner.

Con:Too predictable with comedy and some aspects of plot. Mainly with character's body language. On the positive aspect of it the character was drawn perfectly. So, unless you knew what you were looking for you wouldn't notice it. The curse of over watching anime i suppose. Where aspects of surprise diminish.
Con: Ending was conflicting in regard to main female character's love. Was love more important or money?

Art
Pro: In terms of the ending credits they were original but the elongated picture was too slow. I understand teasing is tempting but read more
