Synopsis

Thor and his twin brother, Rai, are cast off to a forsaken planet by unknown masked men after witnessing the suspicious death of their parents. Given only a beam knife and a smelly satchel, they wander together in search of civilization on the primarily plant based world. They soon discover the plants have the advantage. Only the strong survive; the ones who throw away their humanity and become the beasts humans once were.

Not very well known or popular, Jyu Oh Sei is a hidden gem. A relatively short anime, this series went way beyond my expectations in nearly all respects.

Story

Jyu Oh Sei dispels the myth that a series has to be long in order to be good. It's only 11 episodes but the plot moves very fast and a lot of stuff happens at a good pace.

The story starts off with two twin brothers barely into their teens abandoned on a prison planet after their parents are killed. It begins as a "survival tale" with Thor, the elder brother, being the protagonist, and swiftly transitions into read more

Jyu Oh Sei has stupid names for characters like Thor, Odin, and Zagi of Iliad, but if you can get past that ridiculous attempt at symbolism, and other miscellaneous missteps, you'll hopefully find yourself entertained by this fast paced epic adventure.

On a colony planet far from Earth, two brothers stumble upon their murdered parents and are knocked out by gas. They wake up on a planet loaned from whoever built the sets for King Kong and Little Shop Of Horrors. That's right; the jungle tries to kill you every five minutes!

Jyo Oh Sei is a good (maybe even great) 29 episode show squeezed into 11 episodes. The result isn't pretty.

The foundation of the plot is a big 'ole mess of second rate science fiction concepts, including The Plant Planet, The Prison Planet, The War Between the Sexes, and others that it would be spoilerish of me to reveal. Seriously, this story kept reminding me of the Golden Age SciFi I've read. The difference is, those stories (well, the good ones anyways) fully explored their concepts and were able make interesting situations out of them. And perhaps the Jyu-Oh-Sei manga manages to read more

Aw~~, Jyu Oh Sei...So special ...
To start, the story. I've never imagined that kind of story could exist.
Mixing Sci-fi with he...Hum...how to say it... with a "king of the "animals"", was very sought.
So: Thor and Rai, 2 little twins with blue eyes, pale skin and grey hair, discovered their parents, dead. Dispatched in an unknown planete -by important people (but who?That's a really important question in this story)-, where the law is simple: the stronger, who rule on every people on this planete (called Chimera), and rule on the "special" flora of Chimera, will be able to quit it...
After a little time to think, read more
