Anime Fiction (U.S. OAV Parody) Worst ever Ick. Ick ick ick. Fan animation is bad enough, but fan hentai? Really, did this need to be made?
Arcade Gamer Fubuki (TV) Worst ever STAB ME IN THE EYES. I had to work on this show, and it made me want to kill myself.
Battle Can Can (OAV) Worst ever KILL ME. Not just hentai, not just BAD hentai, not just horribly mean-spirited and misogynistic torture hentai, but all of the above with Hanna Barbera quality.
Bavi Stock (OAV) Worst ever Incomprehensible, ugly, and stupid. Made me want to throw things.
Chu 2 (OAV) Worst ever Take a generic, plotless hentai, remove all but $5 from the budget, dub poorly.
Mask of Zeguy (OAV) Worst ever I fell asleep THREE TIMES while subtitling this.
MD Geist (OAV) Worst ever The original Worst Anime Ever! The director's cut actually makes it watchable; for the full crap effect, you need the original version.

Momone (OAV) Worst ever
Ninja Hattori Kun The Movie (live-action movie) Worst ever KILL ME. KILL ME NOW.

Understanding Chaos (US-Independent OAV) Worst ever
Voltage Fighter Gowcaizer (OAV) Worst ever
Battle Royal High School (OAV) Awful One of those really pointless fighting anime.
Capricorn (OAV) Awful Gag. Has Johji Manabe ever done anything good? No.
City of Sin (OAV) Awful Hilarious, because it's so over the top, and too poorly animated to be taken seriously by even the most desperate, horny otaku.
D7 Peacemaker (amateur OAV) Awful PLEASE buy a microphone, some real software, and take an animation class. This is puke.
Darling (OAV) Awful Dumb hentai. Don't remember much.
Dragon's Heaven (OAV) Awful I think I blocked this one out.
Dream Hazard (OAV) Awful Absolute CRAP. Horrible, horrible crap.

Garaga (movie) Awful If it hadn't been licensed, NOBODY would remember this trashy, low-rent Planet of the Apes rip-off.
Iczer Reborn (OAV) Awful Is it possible to have a six episode OAV and contain not a single shred of originality? Made me want to put my head in a vice and TWIST.
Idol Defense Force Hummingbird (OAV) Awful I don't remember so much about this show other than being completely and utterly bored by it.
Idol Fighter Su-Chi-Pai (OAV) Awful Utterly inept in its pacing and attempts at comedy, and pretty piss poor at everything else. An embarassment.
Kama Sutra (OAV) Awful Boring, stupid, and really poorly drawn. Why did I watch this?

Tekken: The Motion Picture (OAV) Awful
Urotsukidoji: Legend of the Overfiend (movie) Awful
Vixens (OAV) Awful
A.LI.CE (movie) Bad Horrible ugly CG. Boring as sin. Not a whole lot to love here.
Armageddon (Korean movie) Bad Unwatchable. From the era when Korean animators still couldn't draw more than a few frames without the character design morphing.
Art of Fighting (special) Bad Ugh. Stupid and cheap. At least it had a sense of humor about itself.
BAOH (OAV) Bad Stupid. I was rolling my eyes the entire way through. The dub didn't help things either.
Beast City (OAV) Bad A poorly animated excuse to draw tentacle rape. As if we needed more of those.
BioHunter (OAV) Bad Pathetic excuse for cyberpunk.
BRONZE KoJi NANJo cathexis (OAV) Bad I guess it's pretty, but this music made me die inside.
CLAMP School Detectives (TV) Bad So saccharine, so horribly annoying and chirpy, I wanted to torture the characters.
Crimson Wolf (OAV) Bad Schlocky crap.
Crystal Triangle (OAV) Bad Let's see how many good Hollywood movies we can rip off and RUIN!
Cybernetics Guardian (OAV) Bad Horrid character designs, retarded story (if it can be called that), and can't even take itself seriously enough to have a real ending. The dub is the final insult.
(The) Dagger of Kamui (movie) Bad Somebody PLEASE tell me why this is a classic. It's well-animated, but absolutely retarded and full of ugly old racial stereotypes.
(The) Day the Earth Moved (movie) Bad
DNA Sights 999.9 (movie) Bad Completely cliché, lame, forgettable Leiji Matsumoto OAV that never should have been made. One of many.
Doggy Poo (Korean movie) Bad People apparently found this inspiring, but I found it annoying, condescending, and the dub borderline racist.
Enzai (OAV) Bad Torture hentai + penis = EWWWW
Fight!! Spirit of the Sword (OAV) Bad What IS this? It makes NO SENSE!
Fist of the North Star (movie) Bad So over-the-top that I can't believe it was made. The original Japanese ending sequence is devastatingly sad.
Galaxy Express 999: Glass no Clair (movie) Bad Utterly forgettable. One of the many failed Matsumoto adaptations. If you've seen any Matsumoto works, you've seen this already.
Gall Force: Earth Chapter (OAV) Bad As boring as the original!
GTO: The Movie (live-action movie) Bad A lame attempt to extend the success of the drama that doesn't work. Ruined, to a great extent, by the reporter character, who is played by the worst actress ever.
Harmagedon (movie) Bad Boy, has THIS not aged well. For all the grand posturing, the story is a mess. Typical Rintaro, I'm afraid.
Iron Virgin Jun (OAV) Bad Go Nagai at his stupidest. Which means it's creepy and sexual, but actually kinda funny in a way. For a few minutes, at least. Dirt cheap animation.
Kizuna: Much Ado About Nothing (OAV 2) Bad Yaoi angst with a ridiculous love triangle. Even more boring than its predecessor.
Pokemon: Mewtwo Returns (special) Bad
Pokemon: The First Movie Bad
Samurai Shodown: The Motion Picture (special) Bad
Sanctuary (OAV) Bad
Sex Ward (OAV) Bad
Sibling Secret (OAV) Bad

Violence Jack 2 (OAV) Bad
Violence Jack 3 (OAV) Bad
X (movie) Bad
Yu Yu Hakusho: The Movie Bad
2×1 (OAV) Weak The characters are SO obviously underage in this. It's really dumb too, and has a hilariously terrible dub. The way the pubic hair is drawn is really gross.
Advancer Tina (OAV) Weak VERY misogynistic space opera hentai. It's really more horrifying than titillating. Well animated, though. I like the old-school Media Blasters CG logos.
Angel Sanctuary (OAV) Weak Trying really hard to be goth and angsty, and succeeds only in being laughable. Only the Hot Topic crowd could love this. Incest is icky.
Angel's Egg (movie) Weak Experimental and purdy. I really need to watch this again. Very slow.
Appleseed (OAV) Weak The original is a poorly animated muddle of cyberpunk and philosophy. Not compelling. The Manga Video dub is hilarious, though.
Apprentice (amateur OAV) Weak Cute back in the day, but not something anyone needs to see. Little more than a "look what I can do!" demo circa 1998.
Ayane's High Kick (OAV) Weak I like sports anime, but this just didn't do anything for me.
Battle Arena Toshinden (OAV) Weak Ugh. Fighting games usually make for really crappy anime, but this one takes the cake.
Bronze: Zetsuai Since 1989 (OAV) Weak The original was interesting; this is just ridiculous, shirt-ripping histrionics. Do women actually find these designs attractive?
Burn Up! (OAV) Weak Was never amusing.
Chibits (special) Weak I didn't like Chobits, so why did I watch the candy-coated one-shot self-parody? Clearly I don't like myself.
CLAMP in Wonderland (OAV) Weak Not being a Clamp fan, I still found it pleasant. Not much more than that.
Cool Devices (OAV) Weak It was once shocking, now it's just low-rent hentai. Only Umetsu's "Yellow Star" OAV, sort of a proto-Kite, is worth pulling from the wreckage.
Cream Lemon Part 4: POP CHASER (OAV) Weak I guess it was kinda funny back in the day to have a comedy hentai, but the comedy isn't great, and nobody would even find this arousing today.
Dangaioh (OAV) Weak I found it generic and boring even back in the day.
Death Note (live-action movie) Weak God, I hated this. The only smart elements came from the manga; everything the movie version did, from the casting to the script, is pure crap.
DNA² (OAV) Weak This specifies the absolute garbage last 3 episodes, in which the creators clearly give up after the plug has been pulled from the show.
Dog Soldier: Shadows of the Past (OAV) Weak Rambo + Ryo Saeba = mess.
Earthian (OAV) Weak Pretty lame gothic intrigue. Poorly thought out.
End of Summer (OAV) Weak Lame softcore hentai. Don't know why this exists.
Fobia (OAV) Weak Hentai in high school. Poorly animated and forgettable.
Full Moon o Sagashite: Cute Cute Adventure (special) Weak More of a bonus than an anime in its own right.
Fushigi Yugi (OAV) Weak TERRIBLE sequel to the TV series. Never should have been made.
Gall Force - Eternal Story (movie) Weak Snoooze...
Genesis Surviver Gaiarth (OAV) Weak I've pretty much forgotten about this relic, which never really did much for me in the first place.
Geobreeders: Breakthrough (OAV) Weak Forgets what made the original good. Boring, despite better animation.
Grappler Baki: The Ultimate Fighter (OAV) Weak Endless fighting tournaments, grotesquely ugly characters, and cheap animation? Ugh...
Hades Project Zeorymer (OAV) Weak Another completely forgettable early 90s mecha show that goes nowhere. Zzzzz...
Hot Space Cowboys (OAV) Weak Apparently yaoi at its rankest, involving rape by a gross fat guy. Kinda funny, though unintentionally.
Hunter X Hunter: Greed Island (OAV) Weak This show is getting dull and lame and very, very hard to care about. The switch to digital animation does not help it.
Iczelion (OAV) Weak Unwilling and lame female superheroes are boring, no matter how well-animated they are.
Into the Erogenous Zone: Lyon Flare (OAV) Weak
Key the Metal Idol (OAV) Weak This show started out with such promise, and spins so far out of control that the last two long episodes are an absolute disaster on every level.
Kodocha (OAV) Weak Kodocha, drained of its energy and personality. Glad the eventual series went in another direction.
Landlock (OAV) Weak What an utter waste of time. Reused Shirow character designs from an aborted project is its only claim to fame.
Legend of Himiko (TV) Weak Beautiful OP, everything else falls completely head-first into its own cliché. Has RED ever made a good anime? Nope.
Lesbian Ward (OAV) Weak Forgettable nurse hentai.
Magic Woman M (OAV) Weak Jeez... This brutal, horrifying piece of garbage almost made me quit CPM after 3 days on the job. The character commentary is hilarious, tho. Useful as people-repellant.
Makeruna! Makendo (OAV) Weak
Mermaid Forest (TV) Weak
Mirage of Blaze (TV) Weak
My Fair Masseuse (OAV) Weak
New Angel (OAV) Weak
New Hurricane Polymar (OAV) Weak Yasuomi Umetsu character designs look out of place and awkward, and this update of the schlocky 70s superhero show doesn't do a thing for me.
Ogenki Clinic Adventures (OAV) Weak
Outlanders (OAV) Weak
Panda! Go, Panda! (movie) Weak
Panda! Go, Panda!: Rainy Day Circus (movie) Weak
Pikachu's Summer Vacation (movie) Weak

Venus 5 (OAV) Weak
Virgin Fleet (OAV) Weak
Ys II (OAV) Weak
Yu Yu Hakusho The Movie: Poltergeist Report Weak
Battle Team Lakers EX (OAV) Not really good Another Sailor Moon (barely) hentai. Boring.
Big Wars (OAV) Not really good Somehow manages to take intergalactic war AND nymphomania and STILL be boring as sin.
Blood Shadow (OAV) Not really good Mildly compelling and well-animated hentai for the D&D crowd. Am I the only one disturbed by how the protagonist is resuscitated?
Blood: The Last Vampire (movie) Not really good Ugly, and never goes anywhere. Yes, the animation is great, but what's the point?
Boogiepop Phantom (TV) Not really good I don't get it... and moreover, I'm not even sure there's anything TO get. Weird for the sake of weird is just lazy writing.
Bounty Dog (OAV) Not really good I liked the designs initially, but jeez. I've never seen a color palate completely kill a show before.
Burn Up W (OAV) Not really good Was mildly amusing 10 years ago. Now it's just dumb.
Chimera - Angel of Death (OAV) Not really good Was this hentai, or yaoi? Don't care. Either way it's retarded.
Cutie Honey (live-action movie) Not really good As boring as it is dumb. But at least it knows it's being dumb. The dub makes it watchable.
Dirty Pair: Affair on Nolandia (OAV) Not really good Wow. Zero-budget, muddled story, and piss poor animation. The Lovely Angels deserve better than this.
Dōkyūsei 2 (OAV) Not really good My first dating sim turned hentai OAV. I was less than enthused.
Dragoon (OAV) Not really good Started with a better-than-average take on an adolescent hero in a standard D&D plot, likable characters, and threw it all away to strive for mediocrity. Dub is atrocious.
Elementalors (OAV) Not really good Ends up with chi-throwing psychic angst a la Clamp, but could have been so much more.
GTO Drama Special (live-action special) Not really good A throw-away sequel to the drama series. Not so good, compared to the original.
Hooligan (OAV) Not really good Hentai comedy is always a little wrong, but this isn't terrible. At least, after they took out the disturbing lolicon scene.
Iblard Jikan (OAV) Not really good More of a moving painting than an animation in the traditional sense. Have it on in the background, it's not for watching normally. It's very pretty.
Justy (OAV) Not really good Flimsy, unsubstantial 80s fantasy sci-fi. Has a few interesting ideas, but doesn't pursue them. The end theme will get stuck in your head.
Kochira Katsushika-ku Kamearikouen-mae Hashutsujo: The Movie Not really good Silly sitcom-style comedy trying to be an action thriller. It doesn't really work very well.
Level-C (OAV) Not really good I don't get it. I'm a guy, so I suppose I'm not supposed to. It's badly-drawn guys screwing.
Maison Ikkoku: Kanketsuhen (movie) Not really good Tacks on an ill-thought-out additional story onto the ending of Maison Ikkoku that conflicts with the actual ending and serves no purpose. Nobody acts (or looks) like themselves, and it's not funny or fun.
Metropolis (movie) Not really good
(The) Mystery of Nonomura Hospital (OAV) Not really good
Naruto (OAV) Not really good
Ninja Cadets (OAV) Not really good
Ninku the Movie Not really good
No Enemy But Time (amateur OAV) Not really good Amateur animation was a lot harder back when it had to be done with paint and cels, but this is so amateur that it's hard to even watch.
Patlabor WXIII (movie 3) Not really good
Prefectural Earth Defense Force (OAV) Not really good
Rail of the Star - A True Story of Children and War (movie) Not really good
Ranma ½: Big Trouble in Nekonron, China (movie) Not really good
Ranma ½: Nihao My Concubine (movie) Not really good
Strait Jacket (OAV) Not really good
Strange Love (OAV) Not really good
Urotsukidōji: Legend of the Overfiend (OAV) Not really good
Weather Report Girl (OAV) Not really good
A Well-Ordered Restaurant (movie) Not really good A Kenji Miyazawa short story turned into an experimental paint-on-glass animation. Goes in weird directions, and really just rather self-indulgent.
Zetsuai 1989 (OAV) Not really good
3x3 Eyes (OAV) So-so Mildly fun action, but didn't stick with me. The first OAV is better than the second, but they both are really just not memorable and fairly dated-looking.
Akai Hayate (OAV) So-so I remember nothing. Not a good sign.
Ariel (OAV) So-so Might have been mildly amusing satire in the late 80's, but it's aged really poorly and it's just not funny at all.
Armitage III: Poly-Matrix (movie) So-so The movie cut isn't quite as compelling as the OAVs it came from. Keifer Sutherland sounds like he's on tranquilizers.
Armored Dragon Legend Villgust (OAV) So-so This was fun when I was a newbie, but really how much milage can one show get from being super-deformed? VERY standard D&D fantasy OAV.
Balthus - Tia's Radiance (OAV) So-so Basically a hentai take on Laputa. Not good, but mildly amusing.
Coca-Cola Racing Family: Fantastic Four (U.S. TV promo) So-so A well-animated commercial. What else is there to say?
Darkside Blues (movie) So-so Well animated, and makes no sense at all. That blues song is PAIN.
Desert Rose (OAV) So-so Low-brow and ugly, but decent late 80s action OAV.
Detonator Orgun (OAV) So-so Boring 10 years ago, unwatchable now.
Devil Hunter Yohko (OAV) So-so I found this disappointing back in the day, because there's so much more that could be done with the premise. Later episodes suck even harder.
El Hazard - The Magnificent World (OAV) So-so The ending is beautiful, and getting there has its moments. Still, not something i need to rewatch.
F-Force (OAV) So-so Kinda funny, especially dubbed, and well-animated. But ultimately, it's D&D hentai.
Fatal Fury 2: The New Battle (special) So-so The fighting is impressive, but little else is.
Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (US CG movie) So-so A wasted opportunity. HOW much did they spend on this!?
Fish in the Trap (OAV) So-so Completely unremarkable and forgettable yaoi.
Ghost Sweeper Mikami (movie) So-so Oh noes! It's a long running shonen anime series movie spin off! Can you say generic action filler?
Green Legend Ran (OAV) So-so It's Future Boy Conan with suck!
Ichi the Killer: Episode Zero (OAV) So-so The low budget and lack of a conclusion (it IS a prequel) make this far less than it should have been.
(The) Item (amateur OAV) So-so
Judge (OAV) So-so Might have been mildly interesting had it been a LOT more fleshed out, but instead it just lays there.
Jungle Emperor Leo (movie 1997) So-so Preachy as hell, and doesn't really earn its pathos. I enjoyed the F-U to The Lion King at the beginning.
K.O. Beast (OAV) So-so Shonen action comedy from the 80s tends to not age very well.
Ki*Me*Ra (OAV) So-so So ludicrous and takes itself so seriously that it's pretty much impossible to respond with anything other than, "WTF!?"
Kizuna (OAV) So-so Yaoi angst. Poorly animated and boring.
Kusatta Kyōshi no Hōteishiki (OAV) So-so Funny BL comedy that doesn't try for much, and mostly succeeds.
Labyrinth (movie) So-so Serious Jim Henson movies always bored me to tears.
Labyrinth of Flames (OAV) So-so Slapstick and panty-filled OAV that doesn't make a whole lot of sense, and doesn't care. No masterpiece, but a decent way to kill an hour.
Legend of Lemnear (OAV) So-so Shiny muscle people and boobs. This OAV offers little else.
Love City (movie) So-so Old WTF movie that tries to be really cyberpunky and cool, and doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
Lupin III: The Legend of the Gold of Babylon (movie) So-so Honestly, all the Lupin movies have fused together in my mind. I don't remember much about this one.
Maison Ikkoku: Shipwrecked on Ikkoku Island (OAV) So-so An amusing little throw-away side story.
Maison Ikkoku: Through the Passing of the Seasons (special) So-so A recap of the TV series. If you've seen the series, there's really no point in watching this. If you haven't, you'd be better off watching the series instead.
MAPS (OAV 1987) So-so A far more cartoonish version of MAPS. Not particularly good, though it tries to be funny, and with such a cliché premise, that's probably a good thing.
MAPS (OAV 1994) So-so Visually decent mid-90s OAV that takes a very run-of-the-mill sci-fi set-up and makes it a bit exciting, if not engrossing.
Metal Skin Panic MADOX-01 (OAV) So-so It might have been a groundbreaking mecha action OAV, but it's really rather pallid in the end. I could never get used to the character designs.
Miyuki-chan in Wonderland (OAV) So-so
Ninja Scroll (movie) So-so
Orchid Emblem (OAV) So-so
Plastic Little (OAV) So-so
Private Psycho Lesson (OAV by U-Jin) So-so

Sky Blue (Korean movie) So-so
(The) Super Dimension Century Orguss (TV) So-so
Tattoon Master (OAV) So-so
Teacher's Pet (OAV) So-so
Tokyo Revelation (OAV) So-so
Touch: Are kara, Kimi wa... - Miss Lonely Yesterday - (special) So-so
(The) Transformers: The Movie (U.S. movie) So-so
(The) Weathering Continent (movie) So-so
(The) Adventures of Kotetsu (OAV) Decent
Aim For The Best! (movie) Decent Dated-looking but still compelling shoujo sports histrionics.
All Purpose Cultural Cat Girl Nuku Nuku (OAV) Decent The original series is the only good one, and this one is undeniable fun. Episode 4 is creepy and brings it down a knotch.
Baby Love (OAV) Decent Short shoujo OAVs of the 90s. There's a reason nobody licensed them.
Battle Angel (OAV) Decent I never saw what the big deal was with this OAV. It was inventive and action-packed, but the characters didn't interest me much.
Be-Boy Kidnapp'n Idol (OAV) Decent I guess this mild BL anime was trying to be cute, but it succeeds in ABSOLUTELY nothing else.
Behind Closed Doors (OAV) Decent This one gets pretty extreme. Sprite enemas and shoe insertion. Joy.
Blood Reign: Curse of the Yoma (OAV) Decent Guy in medieval times fights monsters. Not really much more to it than that.
Blood Royale (OAV) Decent The anime predecessor to "Two Girls One Cup". Need I say more?
Chinese Ghost Story (Chinese movie) Decent Well animated, but really just a barrage of stuff happening.
City Hunter: Bay City Wars (movie) Decent Lower budget and not as involving as some of the other City Hunter specials.
Dark Water (live-action movie 2002) Decent I can't say I'm a J-horror fan, but this was halfway decent.
Debutante Detective Corps (OAV) Decent I found it mildly amusing back in the day, but today this is not worth the disc it's printed on.
Delpower X Bakuhatsu Miracle Genki! (OAV) Decent An old mecha/high school comedy that hasn't aged very well, but still has a certain analog charm.
Demon Fighter Kocho (OAV) Decent A forgettable ecchi OAV that the dub made good.
Demon Warrior Koji (OAV) Decent If there's such a thing as edgy hentai, I guess it would look like this. Not terrible, as far as the stuff goes.
Digital Juice (OAV) Decent Well-animated experimental/student works from Studio 4C. Most of them are OK, but not particularly interesting.
Dirty Pair: Flight 005 Conspiracy (OAV) Decent Not a particularly memorable Dirty Pair mission.
Everyday is Sunday (OAV) Decent Really a boring slapstick cop comedy. Piss poor animation for an OAV. Episode 2 is pretty icky.
Fatal Fury: The Motion Picture Decent Characters are now so muscled that the whole thing is just disgusting.
(The) Final Flight of the Osiris (OAV) Decent
Fire Tripper (OAV) Decent One of the better Rumik World OAVs. Looks very dated today.
(The) Five Star Stories (movie) Decent This never did anything for me, despite being pretty.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Seven Homunculi VS State Alchemists (OAV) Decent A throw-away little adventure that really doesn't add much to the show.
Fushigi Yugi (OAV 2) Decent God, these OAVs just don't go anywhere, do they? At least this series is a LITTLE better than the first OAV.
Fushigi Yugi Eikoden (OAV) Decent This series is TIRED. Why did they have to make MORE?
Genesis Climber Mospeada (TV) Decent The worst of the series that became "Robotech," squanders likable characters in a very spotty series. Animation and plot occasionally go to crap. Still, it's not terrible.
Goku: Midnight Eye (OAV) Decent Schlocky and B-movieish cyberpunk noir. Kind of fun, but very hard to take seriously.
Gokusen (live-action TV 2) Decent It's getting REALLY cheesy now, but I can't stop watching. I am so ashamed.
Good Morning Call (OAV) Decent Forgettable shoujo romance girliness. It's no masterpiece, but not the worst thing in the world.
Grrl Power (OAV) Decent Daichi's cute little girly OAV that doesn't do much but be fast-paced and cute. Not one of his best works.
Handsome na Kanojo (OAV) Decent Very cute, despite the stupidity of the plot. Reminds me of Marmalade Boy.
Harlock Saga (OAV) Decent Slow, but the Wagner opera is a good match for the Matsumoto universe. One of the better OAV adaptations of his work.
Higan (OAV) Decent Tries really hard, and the animation is decent, but that doesn't stop it from reeking of "pretentious student film".
Kaze to Ki no Uta SANCTUS -Sei naru kana- (OAV) Decent This early yaoi OAV features too-young characters and some ridiculous over-the-top emotions. Mildly compelling, tho.
Kimagure Orange Road (OAV) Decent Throw-away stories from the KOR universe. Inconsequential and dated, but still fun and quaint.
Last Order Final Fantasy VII (OAV) Decent Final Fantasy characters being angsty. After Advent Children, it's hard to care much about this OAV.
Lily C.A.T. (OAV) Decent Monster-on-a-spaceship horror. Nothing noteworthy, but mildly entertaining. I love Umetsu's character designs.
Little Nemo - Adventures in Slumberland (movie) Decent Beautiful, even if the story is too pedestrian for anyone over the age of 12.
Love Lessons (OAV) Decent Your usual misogynistic piece of hentai. Not horrible, but not noteworthy.
Luna Varga (OAV) Decent Forgettable 90s fantasy comedy OAV. Mildly amusing, but I can't imagine this has aged very well.
Megazone 23 Part II (OAV) Decent I like this way more than I should. Aims extremely high visually, and when it works, it works amazingly. When it doesn't, it sinks like a rock.
Megazone 23 Part III (OAV) Decent Sloppy, partially unfinished, and with a not-really-likable cast. At least it has some pleasant music...
Mini Pato (movie) Decent
Mobile Suit Gundam - The Movie Trilogy Decent
My Sexual Harassment (OAV) Decent
Mystery of the Necronomicon (OAV) Decent

Vampire Hunter D (OAV) Decent
You're Under Arrest (OAV) Decent
Zillion: Burning Night (OAV) Decent
8 Man After (OAV) Good I enjoyed the theme of more traditional superheroes in a dark, noir setting. Really bloody. Pulp, but fun pulp. Terrible dub, but it's all you could get in the US.
Amazing Nuts! (OAV) Good Studio 4C experimental weirdness. Not always successful, but interesting to watch.
Angel Cop (OAV) Good Schlocky, mean-spirited, violent, and stupid while being pseudo-intellectual, anti-American, anti-Semitic, bizarre and paranoid. What's not to like?
Animation Runner Kuromi 2 (OAV) Good Not quite on the level of its predecessor, but still a really good time.
Aquatic Language (special) Good
Armitage III (OAV) Good The original version is by far the best, and had some compelling Ghost in the Shell-ish undertones. Gotta love the Amiga-sounding musical score!
Assemble Insert (OAV) Good Basically a comedy episode of Patlabor. Which means it's awesome.
Bakuen Campus Guardress (OAV) Good Still a lot of apocalyptic fun, even all these years later.
Belladonna of Sadness (movie) Good Barely animated, but disturbing and gross. Still, it's pretty in a psychedelic sort of way.
Broken Down Film (movie) Good Very cute and innovative short from the late, great Tezuka.
Bubblegum Crisis (OAV) Good Still a classic, even if early episodes don't really hold up well today. Fantastic music.
Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040 (TV) Good Not spectacular, but a worthy update of BGC. Superb ending theme. Dub suffers from severe overacting.
City Hunter (TV) Good Until Kaori shows up, it's mildly offensive and not funny. But once those mokkori-hammers start flyin', I couldn't stop watching.
City Hunter 2 (TV) Good Getting repetitive, but loads of fun.
City Hunter: .357 Magnum (movie) Good Occasionally over-the-top but still a lot of fun. Love the ADV dub.
City Hunter: Million Dollar Conspiracy (movie) Good Light-weight and funny CH installment. Not the best, but still a good time.
City Hunter: Secret Service (special) Good Not a great special, but it was my first City Hunter, so I still like it. I love the ED theme, even if the OP sounds like small animals being tortured.
City Hunter: The Motion Picture (special) Good Probably the best City Hunter telemovie. The action is actually easy to take seriously, and the animation is quite decent.
Compiler 2 (OAV) Good Dull. The dub is no help.
Cooking Master Boy (TV) Good Stereotypical shonen "ganbarimasu" anime, but undeniably fun.
Crusher Joe: The Movie Good The anti-social space hero movie. How could I not love it?
Cyber City Oedo 808 (OAV) Good Not Kawajiri's best -- the setup and the stories are both pretty lame. The Manga Video curse-dubbing makes it a guilty pleasure.
Daicon films (special) Good 8 minutes of pure nerd joy.
Damekko Dōbutsu (TV) Good I don't care what you say, superdeformed people in animal costumes is funny. Little else is, but that was enough to get me to watch the whole thing.
Dango Gonta (ONA) Good Daichi Akitarou's weird little series of superhero chaos. Worth watching just for the SPEED of it.
Dead Heat (OAV) Good Fun mecha racing action. Sort of reminds me of Patlabor.
Dead Leaves (OAV) Good Chaotic, colorful and counter-culture. Ultimately kind of empty, tho.
Demon City Shinjuku (OAV) Good It's completely by the numbers and dumb, but it's so well-staged and well-animated that it's hard to dislike.
Descendants of Darkness (TV) Good Cute and amusing, but doesn't really make a lasting impression.
Dirty Pair (OAV) Good Really just TV episodes with a slight budget boost. Fun, but nothing to write home about.
Dirty Pair: From Lovely Angels with Love (OAV) Good Mildly amusing Dirty Pair. Those shows don't seem to vary much.
Dirty Pair: Project Eden (movie) Good The mildly fun story (complete with musical chorus) is upstaged by Koji Morimoto's BREATHTAKING opening animation.
DNA² (TV) Good Amusing at first, dumb until episode 12, absolute GARBAGE after that. Great opening theme, at least.
Domain of Murder (OAV) Good Would have been a great TV episode to a series, but by itself it's just an ugly, weird little OAV.
Dragon Half (OAV) Good Hilarious when I was younger. Still mildly funny today.
Eight Clouds Rising (OAV) Good It had potential and some interesting ideas. It blew them both.
Elf Princess Rane (OAV) Good Very, very silly OAV by Akitaroh Daichi! A favorite of the VHS fansub scene.
Escaflowne: The Movie Good A parade of "doesn't this look cool!?" animation and a razor thin plot carved from the TV series.
(The) Fantastic Adventures of Unico (movie) Good
Fatal Fury: Legend of the Hungry Wolf (special) Good The fighting is impressive, and the story is mildly decent.
Full Moon o Sagashite (TV) Good Girly idol singer wish-fulfillment shoujo for really young girls, plus cancer. The ending was a true disappointment, but I still like it.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Chibi Party (OAV) Good A bonus to the movie. Cute, but not that funny.
Fushigi Yugi (TV) Good Never mind that it's a shoujo harem show, never mind that the main character is annoying as sin. It's still a lot of fun.
Gakuen Tokusō Hikaruon (OAV) Good Forgettable, but well-animated 80's shonen action. Has a certain charm to it...
Gauche the Cellist (movie) Good An early Takahata work that bears watching. Lovely.
Geobreeders (OAV) Good Well-animated and amusing! Not terribly original, but entertaining.
Ghiblies (special) Good Esoteric and amusing. It's definitely an acquired taste, though.
Gokusen (live-action TV) Good Melodramatic, and featuring all these "juvenile delinquents" that are clearly 100 lb. bishounen pop stars, it still makes me laugh. And Yankumi is so cute...
(The) Gokusen (TV) Good
Golgo 13: Queen Bee (OAV) Good Golgo is hardly high-art, but somehow this just doesn't come close to the majesty of the original movie.
Golgo 13: The Professional (movie) Good This is the stuff of pulp novels and B-movies, but Dezaki's expert staging make this a cinematic delight.
Gravitation: Lyrics of Love (OAV) Good You know, I'm not a Gravitation fan. It's just too over-the-top and flamey for me. (shrug)
GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka (live-action TV) Good Despite how silly and melodramatic it gets towards the end of the series, and despite not being a fan of the actor who plays Onizuka, this show is a lot of fun.
Gunsmith Cats (OAV) Good Not the most compelling thing in the world, but the action is hard to beat.
Hal & Bons (OAV) Good Cute, but takes the joke waaaay too far. It would have been fine as one episode, but FOUR?!
Hana Yori Dango (movie) Good An interesting alternate-universe take on HanaDan. Silly and storybook, but fun in its own way. It's sort of like seeing the cast in a Broadway musical or something.
Haunted Junction (TV) Good Funny at first, but really quite ho-hum comedy. Misses all the chances to be totally offensive with religion.
Honey and Clover II (TV) Good
Horus - Prince of the Sun (movie) Good Has nothing to do with Norway or princes, but a (mostly) well-animated classic. Some of the 60s influences are amusing, though uneven execution keep it from being better than it could be. Most violent children's film ever.
Howl's Moving Castle (movie) Good Pretty, but pointless and goes nowhere. The worst film Miyazaki has ever made... and still better than 90% of the other stuff out there.
I'll/CKBC (OAV) Good There's really not a whole lot going on here, but it's really pretty, and somehow has this sense of verité to it.
Ippatsu Kiki Musume (TV) Good Utterly insane Japanese comedy at its best. Reminds me of some of their famous variety shows.
Jing: King of Bandits (TV) Good The amazing visuals and imaginative set-ups make the pedestrian story seem a little better than it is.
Jubei-Chan The Ninja Girl - Secret of the Lovely Eyepatch (TV) Good Fun and frivolous, but the thing with her dad saving her felt kinda creepy to me.
Kaze no Yojimbo (TV) Good This show really kept me riveted, despite the crap animation and the cheesy video effects they tried to hide it with.
Kid's Story (OAV) Good Fantastic animation, but the story really didn't do too much for me. Shows Watanabe is capable of more than faux cool.
(The) Laughing Target (OAV) Good
Loveless (TV) Good Beautiful art direction and interesting insight into the mind of a childhood abuse victim make it easier to overlook the creepy shota-con overtones.
Lupin III: The Fuma Conspiracy (movie) Good Honestly, all the Lupin movies have fused together in my mind. I don't remember much about this one.
Maison Ikkoku: Prelude, When the Cherry Blossoms in the Springtime Return (special) Good A recap of the TV series. If you've seen the series, there's really no point in watching this. If you haven't, you'd be better off watching the series instead.
Maris the Chojo (OAV) Good This 80s Rumiko Takahashi sci-fi comedy doesn't stand the test of time very well.
Marmalade Boy (movie) Good A rather pointless extension of early scenes of the TV series make Yuu out to be a stalker. This goes nowhere. At least it's short.
Martian Successor Nadesico (TV) Good Nadesico! Still funny and sharp, all these years later. The dub makes it even more fun.
Master of Mosquiton (OAV) Good I wonder how well this holds up today. I remember it being pretty damn funny back in the day.
Megazone 23 (OAV) Good A little too wide-eyed and idealistic for my tastes, but I appreciate it for its ending.
Midori Days (TV) Good
Munto (OAV) Good
Nadia - The Secret of Blue Water (TV) Good
Naruto Special: Battle at Hidden Falls. I Am the Hero! (OAV) Good

(The) Super Dimension Fortress Macross (TV) Good
(The) Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love? (movie) Good
Tachikomatic Days (OAV) Good Cute as an end-of-episode cookie. Someone cut all of them together, though, and they get annoying fast.
Tales of Seduction (OAV) Good
(The) Tales Trilogy (OAV) Good
Tenchi Muyo! The Night Before The Carnival (OAV) Good
Tobira o Akete (OAV 1995) Good

(The) World of Narue (TV) Good
Ai no Kusabi (OAV) Very good Probably the best, most compelling yaoi anime ever made.
(The) Animatrix (OAV) Very good
Arashi no Yoru ni (movie) Very good Very cute children's tale, though strangely homoerotic. The ending doesn't work.
Birdy the Mighty (OAV) Very good Cute and funny. The most "normal" thing Kawajiri ever animated.
Black Magic M-66 (OAV) Very good A light-weight Terminator-ish anime that's way more fun than it should be.
Bludgeoning Angel Dokuro-chan (TV) Very good Hilarious ultra-bloody send-up of moe. Everyone needs to see this.
Blue Butterfly Fish (OAV) Very good Fun love story, but I wish it was longer.
Blue Sonnet (OAV) Very good Very intriguing! Highly compelling. I have to rewatch this.
(The) Boy Who Saw the Wind (movie) Very good
Boys Over Flowers (TV) Very good Dubious lessons on domestic violence aside, this is one of the more consistently entertaining and least idealized shoujo romance shows I know of.
(The) Cat Returns (movie) Very good
(The) Cockpit (OAV) Very good
Connected (OAV) Very good Awesome music video to an orgy of techno music. Still, I can't shake the feeling that the real-life equivalents to every one of these characters would have Chlamydia.
Cowboy Bebop: The Movie Very good So much fun... Can't stop grinning!
(The) Diary of Tortov Roddle (ONA) Very good Very compelling in an off-beat, arty children's storybook sort of way.
Egao (special) Very good Makes you go "squeee!" with cuteness!
Fake (OAV) Very good Pretty funny OAV. I found the manga enjoyable too. One of the few good yaoi shows out there.
Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children (movie) Very good It's real purdy, but other than that... there's not much here, other than a wistful look at characters we once loved.
Fullmetal Alchemist: Premium Collection (OAV) Very good Really just a recap special of the TV series. Nothing to see here.
Fullmetal Alchemist: The Movie - Conqueror of Shamballa Very good Tries to do too much in too little time, and ultimately doesn't have the impact of the series. Which isn't to say it's bad...
Gantz (TV) Very good It's bloody as hell, and the pacing needs work, but thought provoking and amusing in it cynicism. The second half falls apart badly. The ED sequence is so sad...
Genocyber (OAV) Very good The first episode is amazing and has a lot to say, intermixed with some of the most disturbing imagery ever animated. Subsequent episodes go downhill... fast.
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (TV) Very good Spotty, and some of the stand-alone episodes miss their mark. Despite that, it's beautiful, and the Laughing Man saga is pretty cool.
Girl's High (TV) Very good It's poorly animated and has some episodes that don't really work, but I love the bawdy, raunchy comedy. Girls with flaws in anime? Who knew!
Hajime no Ippo - Mashiba vs. Kimura (OAV) Very good Low rent compared to the series, and the designs have changed for the worse, but it's still fun. When did Kimura get so serious?
Here Is Greenwood (OAV) Very good Some of the most fun to be had in a high school dorm. Great characters, but requires the manga for a complete experience.
(The) Heroic Legend of Arslan (OAV) Very good
Hikaru No Go: New Year Special Very good Just a few more episodes of Hikaru no Go after the ending of the series. Since the manga didn't go anywhere with this arc, it's nice that they animated it anyway.
Honey and Clover (TV) Very good Lovable cast and consistent comedy make this a favorite, despite the last act dragging on far longer than was necessary.
Hunter X Hunter (TV) Very good A pretty fun shonen series, despite how it meanders.
Hunter X Hunter (OAV) Very good This show is losing steam, fast. Still, Gon and Killua are cute and fun to watch.
Ichi the Killer (live-action movie) Very good Painful, bloody, and wicked fun. If you have a strong stomach, you can't deny that you had a good time.
Ichigeki Sacchu!! HoiHoi-san (special) Very good Ridiculous, cute, and sharp in its satire. I'm glad it's so short, since it's really just one very well-animated joke.
Iria - Zeiram the Animation (OAV) Very good Surreal and bracing action show from the golden age of OAVs. I wish the dub was better.
(The) Irresponsible Captain Tylor (TV) Very good
JoJo's Bizarre Adventure (OAV) Very good Bloody and brutal, but not without its comedic moments. Well-animated and witty, but not exceptional.
Jumping (movie) Very good The world, the universe, the past, the future... This has inspired countless dreams for me. Tezuka is the king.
Kamikaze Girls (live-action movie) Very good Cute and fun, even if it's a little too polished and happy for its punk attitude. Great music.
Kimagure Orange Road: The Movie Very good Tries to take the inevitable ending of KOR and make it as serious as possible. Effective, though the characters barely act themselves.
Kite Liberator (OAV) Very good Has little to do with the first Kite, but on its own, as satire, it works. Those looking for something straight-forward will doubtlessly leave pissed-off.
Like the Clouds, Like the Wind (special) Very good A Miyazaki-ish take on feudal China. Cute!
Macross Plus Movie Edition Very good The lack of dub makes this a harder sell, but the pacing is a bit more even than the OAVs and the new concert footage is gorgeous. It's worth owning both.
Magic User's Club! (OAV) Very good Cute and fun romp with adorable characters. The animation still holds up quite well.
Maison Ikkoku (TV) Very good Despite its frustrating characters and dumb set-ups, I still love this show. It's funny and relaxing, and nostalgic for a Tokyo that used to be.
Marmalade Boy (TV) Very good Shoujo histrionics at their finest! Utterly engrossing, even though it's a REALLY dumb soap opera. (And if ONE person had a cell phone, there would be no story at all.)
Memory (movie) Very good
Mermaid (movie) Very good
Mermaid Forest (OAV) Very good
Mermaid's Scar (OAV) Very good
Mezzo Forte (OAV) Very good

(The) Vision of Escaflowne (TV) Very good
Wata no Kuni Hoshi (OAV) Very good
(The) White Snake (movie) Very good The first big Toei movie is also one of the best. Drop-dead gorgeous, and holds up well today.
A Wind Named Amnesia (movie) Very good Fairly profound OAV with a terrible ending that nearly ruins the whole thing.
World Record (OAV) Very good
AD Police (OAV) Excellent Dark, violent, brooding cyberpunk. Hasn't aged well, but the animation quirks are part of the charm. I still like the Philippine-pop soundtrack.
Adieu Galaxy Express 999 (movie) Excellent The original two GE999 movies are so much fun. Even if Matsumoto endings bug the piss out of me.
Akira (movie) Excellent Still a classic, even though it can't hold a candle to the manga. With the new dub, it actually (almost) makes sense now!
Alien Nine (special) Excellent Super-creepy little girls fighting aliens show. Seems to be bursting with double-meanings. Really well-done.
Animation Runner Kuromi (OAV) Excellent It's Daichi! It's so much fun, and it's pretty accurate from what I've been told. Hilarious AND educational.
Baby Blue (movie) Excellent
Barefoot Gen (movie) Excellent The most traumatic tragedy ever animated. Very powerful, though it's not nearly as impressive as Grave of the Fireflies.
Bartender (TV) Excellent This show makes me happy. Its premise is really silly, but how can you NOT love a magical bartender who cures all his clients' heartaches with booze?
Battle Royale (live-action movie) Excellent What a classic! There are few things more satisfying than watching a bunch of annoying teenage girls go all catty on one another till it turns into a bloodbath.
Black Jack (OAV) Excellent Occasionally over-the-top (as only Dezaki can do), but consistently entertaining.
Black Jack The Movie Excellent Basically just an extended OAV episode. Lots of medical intrigue with a twist of the sci-fi.
Bobby's Girl (movie) Excellent Worth watching just for Morimoto Kouji's pencil work alone.
Cannon Fodder (movie) Excellent A masterful deconstruction of Soviet russia and the cold war. Beautiful, but intellectually challenging, as there is no real plot.
Cat Soup (OAV) Excellent One of the best experimental anime ever made.
Compiler (OAV) Excellent I think it was hilarious, but I think that was just the dub. The show itself is pretty dull.
Coo: Tōi Umi kara Kita Coo (movie) Excellent Adorable. And utterly insane. It's all fun and games 'till THE GOVERNMENT SHOOTS YOUR DOLPHIN!!!!
Cowboy Bebop (TV) Excellent How can you hate Bebop? Genuinely worth all the hype it got.
(The) Dog of Flanders (movie) Excellent
Dominion Tank Police (OAV) Excellent This show has nostalgic value for me, but it would have been so much better had they actually taken some of the concepts and gone somewhere with them.
Fighting Spirit (TV) Excellent A lot of fun. One of the most compelling sports shows ever.
Flag (ONA) Excellent Thought provoking and intelligent, even if its visuals are gimmicky to a fault.
Fullmetal Alchemist (TV) Excellent Thought provoking, compelling and incredibly memorable. A must-see.
Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo (TV) Excellent Utterly stunning. One of the best things Gonzo has ever produced.
Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence (movie) Excellent Despite how self-indulgent it is, I like it. It's much more watchable in English, as the psychological babble really needs to just wash over you. That's not possible with subs.
(The) Girl Who Leapt Through Time (movie) Excellent
Grave of the Fireflies (movie) Excellent One of the finest works of animation ever produced.
Gunbuster (OAV) Excellent I could find faults with this show, but there's no point -- it's loads of fun, and the ending is absolutely beautiful.
Haibane Renmei (TV) Excellent Unforgettably beautiful. An all-time favorite.
Hajime no Ippo - Champion Road (special) Excellent Ippo is an awesome show, and this is more of the same. More Ippo is good Ippo.
Hikaru no Go (TV) Excellent Yes, it's about a board game, but it's SOOOO good! The last episode made me cry.
(The) Humanoid (OAV) Excellent
Jing, King of Bandits: Seventh Heaven (OAV) Excellent Filling in the main characters' back story makes this OAV much more compelling than the TV series that spawned it. Continues to be real purdy.
Junkers Come Here (movie) Excellent Utterly adorable, and poignant. The dub drives me crazy, because it's sometimes amazing and sometimes crap.
Kakurenbo - Hide & Seek (movie) Excellent Dark and fascinating. Doesn't allow for much character development, but the animation is lavish and beautiful.
Kiki's Delivery Service (movie) Excellent A perfect film, in its own way. One of Miyazaki's best.
Kill Bill Chapter 3: The Origin of O-Ren (movie segment) Excellent Kill Bill is a fantastic, visually lavish exercise in Asian action excess, and the anime section is no exception.
Kimagure Orange Road: Summer's Beginning (movie) Excellent As with most "reunion" shows, the redesign and updated animation aren't improvements, but this one comes off better than most.
Knight of the Iron Dragon (OAV) Excellent A beautiful story about heroism during war time.
Lupin III: The Castle of Cagliostro (movie) Excellent Easily the best Lupin movie, and why not? It's Miyazaki! A consistent favorite.
Macross Plus (OAV) Excellent Very Hollywood-feeling and accessible, but well done and exciting, with a great musical score. I've used this as a gateway drug to turn people into fans. Muahahaha... Excellent dub too.
(The) Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (TV) Excellent
Mind Game (movie) Excellent
Mobile Suit Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket (OAV) Excellent
Mt. Head (movie) Excellent
My Neighbor Totoro (movie) Excellent
Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (movie) Excellent
Neo-Tokyo (movie) Excellent
Nineteen 19 (OAV) Excellent A stylish and visually arresting love story in grand MTV tradition.
Nobody's Boy Remi (TV) Excellent Watch as poor Remi discovers that life doesn't use lubricant. I'm a sucker for sad shows, and this is one of the best. Doesn't look nearly as old as it is.
Nurse Angel Ririka SOS (TV) Excellent
On Your Mark (movie) Excellent

Kino's Travels: Life Goes On (movie) Masterpiece A particularly stirring part of Kino's back story. As good as the rest of the series ever was.

Kodocha (TV) Masterpiece The speed, the stupidity, the craziness... Kodocha is a classic. There's a weak arc here and there, but who cares!
Koro's Big Day Out (movie) Masterpiece This is SOOOO CUTE!!!! Only Miyazaki can make a little dog getting lost this compelling.
