Giant Robo (OAV)
*Warning – Spoilers*
To be honest, this is a little bit of a troll pick. Then again, it’s not. There are a tremendous amount of really superb scenes out there. But when I sat down and asked myself, “what is EPIC?” I settled upon this glorious scene. It’s got giant robots, samurai, special powers, a giant evil eye, a “bad guy” that returns just to get revenge on another bad guy… It’s 15 minutes long, but man, it’s got everything. Oh. For the record, it makes about as much sense in context as out of context.
Giant Robo OAV is a special kind of insane… It’s got so many random things in there you’d expect it to be terrible. In a sense, it is. But in a B-movie so bad, it’s really good kind of way. It helps that there’s actually a pretty good plot going on in there. Truly amazing in the sheer insanity of it all. Hilarious too. Another of the rare anime where i’d recommend the dub. Surprisingly the dub seems to match both the sound of the characters’ voices and keep in line with the crazyness of everything.
