I remember going to the video store, browsing the shelves, and picking out a movie based on the box art alone. I'd look at the front, I'd look at the back, and more often than not I'd put it back on the shelf. Occasionally there'd be something like Ghost in the Shell or Ninja Scroll, and I knew I just had to rent it, or more accurately get my parents to rent it.

This isn't just a list of movies that were available on VHS at my local video store, this is also a list of movies that I would have rented had they been there. They have box art and synopsis appeal, regardless of the reality contained within.

This is my virtual VHS store, where we say Japanimation and we don't stock TV shows unless they're only a few episodes long. I hope you like violence and nudity. Things here also generally skew older, keeping with the VHS theme.

This is the bad stuff list. If you want the good stuff list, go here: https://myanimelist.net/stacks/9517

The sequel is also bad.
Shin Cutie Honey

Kyoushoku Soukou Guyver

Guyver: Out of Control

Kyoushoku Soukou Guyver
Movie, 1986, 1 ep Me:- Author:4
This initial outing for The Guyver is bad. Watch the 1989 and 1992 Guyver series instead. The 2005 series is the most complete telling and also good.
Amon Saga
OVA, 1986, 1 ep Me:- Author:4

Youseiki Suikoden

Suikoden Demon Century

Youseiki Suikoden
OVA, 1993, 1 ep Me:- Author:4
Byston Well Monogatari: Garzey no Tsubasa
OVA, 1996, 3 eps Me:- Author:4
I am bruised all over my body because I had to fight naked. There is a war going on, even dinosaurs are here, and they use bows and arrows. My sword is unbelievably dull. I'm not joking, twelfth and thirteenth century foreigners surround me. I must somehow make sense of our convoluted situation.
Choujin Gakuen Gowcaizer: The Voltage Fighters
OVA, 1996, 3 eps Me:- Author:4

Movie, 1994, 1 ep Me:- Author:4
Sengoku Kitan Youtouden Movie
Movie, 1989, 1 ep Me:- Author:4
Soujuu Senshi Psychic Wars
OVA, 1991, 1 ep Me:- Author:4
Powerfully dull. Like, surprisingly so. Watch this OVA intently, like you truly care, and feel how the life drains from your body. It isn't even an hour long, but boy does it feel longer than that.
Violence Jack: Harem Bomber-hen
OVA, 1986, 1 ep Me:- Author:4
This first OVA in the series is the worst one. The sequel, Evil Town, is actually alright. Hell's Wind isn't as good, but it's also not as bad as this first one.
Yami no Shihosha Judge
OVA, 1991, 1 ep Me:- Author:4
It's Death Note? But the protagonist is his own Shinigami? Meek office worker goes home at night, goths up, then doles out punishment to criminals with his human skin book.
Soukihei MD Geist
OVA, 1986, 1 ep Me:- Author:5
This one's kinda okay, it's the sequel that's the real trash, but ya gotta start here. Just a cool guy doing cool guy shit. "Violence of the Flame" is a banger of a theme too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qxHgVBpKNEo

Watch the 1995 Shadow Skill OVA instead, or not, it's not great, it's just better than this.
Hell Target
OVA, 1987, 1 ep Me:- Author:5
Instead of watching this you could watch Alien, Galaxy of Terror, and Event Horizon. I suggest you do that.
