I watched this OVA on YouTube. The video had a terrible 240p resolution and the subtitles were the most retarded Engrish subs ever made, making sometimes impossible to follow the dialogues due to the barely understandable/nonsense translation. This made the whole experience quite painful, seriously limiting the overall enjoyment, but the anime is decent.

Rokudenashi Blues is just another obscure and hard to find OVA from the early 90s. It's nothing special: very short and with a simple plot, it features some classic high school gang-related violence.

There isn't much room for character or plot development because the OVA is about 30 minutes long. Art read more

If you're looking for a long, detailed in-depth review this one isn't for you because there isn't much to say about this OVA besides the fact it's just a bad anime, and a VERY bad one.

The plot is extremely confusing: a lot of things happen but many of them are unexplained or barely developed, and most of them don't make any sense. The first 15-20 minutes are somewhat acceptable because it may look as an interesting adventure/mystery story with mystical elements, but then the remaining 70 minutes of nonsense come in like a train.

Visuals are nothing special, with mediocre sketches and character design and read more

If you're into sci-fi/mecha-related anime from the 80s chances are you are aware of the existence of Five Star Stories and you're probably wondering whether to watch it or not.

This will be a fairly short review wherewith I will try to answer this question. For those of you who don't have time nor patience to read the full review, here's a short answer: no, just don't. For the rest of you, here's why you should avoid this anime and save 1 hour of your life that can be spent in so many better ways.

There isn't much to say, actually. The story is a complete read more

Have you ever heard or read about this anime? No? Well, me neither until I randomly found it in the recommended videos section on YouTube. It's a very obscure OVA from 1996 based on a possibly even more obscure manga by the same author of the more known Riki-Oh. Oddly enough, I found it dubbed and the dubbing was good quality with well known and top notch voice actors.

It's made by the famous J.C. Staff, a very renowned animation studio with plenty of resources, so the art and animation (which are in full 1990s style) are good. Character design is cool and the sketches read more

First of all: if you don't know the background to this OVA, i.e. if you haven't watched the Devils Line series, it's utterly pointless to start with this one since you just won't understand it. This is nothing but an extra episode which barely develops the plot and adds almost nothing to the continuation of the story. It is not a stand-alone, but it's basically made of several flashbacks which are very useful to explain and elaborate Anzai's past, a topic which isn't well covered in the regular series.

The general quality (animation, art, etc.) is the same as the previous episodes. It's a good, read more

Preliminary
The word "anime" refers to Japanese animated media, and this shouldn't be considered an anime because it's not even animated.

There isn't much to say about this series: no plot, no animations (only still images with just a little bit of trembling when characters speak), extremely poor drawing with a very childish character design. Voice acting is nothing special because all the characters are dubbed by the same guy.

I understand it's meant to be focused on humor, but there is no humor since dialogues are pure nonsense and they're definitely not funny. I really can't consider it enjoyable by any means since there is read more
