Recently, I've been going through this 80's/90's OVA phase and I think we should have a thread about them.
Pic related is Boku no Marie, it's pretty fun and cute, I recommend it.

I think the most obscure OVA I've seen is YKK, and even that isn't that obscure

It'd be better to make this thread during the morning/afternoon. Probably won't get many replies then anyways. The large majority of /a/nons don't watch anime that old.

How about Gosenzosama Banbanzai OP, seen that yet?

I'm biased because I'm a Mamoru Oshii fanboy, but it's a pretty neat little OVA if you like experimental things (it's practically a cross between anime and theatre, pretty nifty).

It's by Jouji Manabe. Might as well watch Outlanders too.

While it's not exactly obscure I think "Ulysses 31" was a great anime from that time. Even though it's half French.

It's nothing special, at least for the OVAs. Directed by Shinbo.

FYI Boku no Marie is based on a much longer manga. The OVA was only 3 episodes, of which the 3rd one was original and loosely based on 'Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?'

Trivia tidbit: The VA for Marie also voiced Asuka from Evangelion. One of her very few voice roles other than Eva.

The second OVA episode of Boku no Marie with the delinquent at the end when she looked back and the music cued in was excellent.
>>
>>134069910
I haven't watched the ova but I read the manga some years ago, when I went on a retro-romantic-manga spree.

I expected an easygoing story about a hikkikomori and his ideal videgoame girl or something similar.

Goddamn if I was wrong. I don't know why mangakas enjoyed doing dramatic-as-fuck stories back in the 80's.
This and I''s could very well be fucking soap operas.

I got Combustible Campus Guardress in the same fansub shipment as Idol Project (see above) and I think most of the last season of Sailor Moon (not subbed). I barely remember it, except it's a four-part OAV, there's a really unflattering depiction of a gay Scotsman, there's some exploding titties, and the dude who did Bastard!! did the character designs. I think I watched it every day for a month. It probably doesn't hold up very well today other than the animation quality, if you can even find it. Makes me wish I still had my old VCR.

I would say Call Me Tonight but it had a DVD release so it's probably not all that obscure. Still, the premise is hilarious even if the execution leaves a lot to be desired.

>>134069562
STREETS ARE HOT

>>134069713
I still hold that the second OVA was a major shift in tone from the first, especially with the "Natsuki Special" and the entire thing turning into a high stakes battle. Enjoyed both OVAs but it was unexpected after how grounded the first was.
>>
If you're into minor OVAs you should definitely watch the two Midnight Eye Goku OVAs, it's one of the late Dezaki works too with Kawajiri's direction.

Bretty gud short works with tons of /m/, Dezaki's gorgeuos visuals and really nice action, full of cliches from the time of course but that's great for the nostalgia value.

YKK's manga is pretty popular, but no one talks about it. Its one of those things that is on a reading list, people read it, but don't care to bring it up anywhere but 3x3 threads

>>134073017
It takes the cliches and plays them up really well. It was a fun ride, especially the second OVA with his pimped out ride.

Don't forget the ED. FIGHTING IN THE DANGER is amazing.
>>
Battle Athletes Victory was pretty entertaining, although Akari does cry way too much. Akari House™ will live on forever though. Must watch if you love 80s/90s athletic clothes and swimsuits.

Also features insane 'sporting events' such as this bike race—

>>134073128
Oh yeah, also I think it was the TV series that was the good one to watch and the OVA wasn't as good right?

I wasn't unaware it was meant to be a TV series originally. The quality of the OVA was superb, the premise and execution was great fun and it did a good job of capturing the essence of the culture at the time. While I like the idea, it's one of those cases where I'm uncertain how well it would work in an episodic format rather than the way it was presented in the OVA.

Oh yeah, the second OVA while not as good as the first on a narrative point of view was probably better on pure mecha porn too.
The part where Goku hacks into the factory and creates his batmobile is one of the most gorgeous mechanical animated sequences I've ever seen, the sheen on his car when it slowly comes out of the factory is pure Dezaki porn, should have been censored really.

That scene had me in stitches when I originally watched it because of the sheer absurdity. I mean, even while appreciating the work that went into the scene and creating an impression of how technologically advanced it was, the end result with him firing the inter-dimensional missile was too much.

The true sadness is how much of a beating that car took. Even if he can replace it easily.

I suppose Dream Hunter Rem isn't obscure nowadays thanks to its surge of popularity on the waves of SHC and finally getting subs, but it's a shame not to mention it at all. It was the ultimate combination of absolutely everything there ever was to 80s OVAs, after all.

Also, Exper Zenon is a fun little thing from what I remember, weird lewd superpower Accel World-like whatever it was.

I'm loving the cast actually, granted I'm only 20 stages in so far (bought it day one but struggled with moon back then so only picked it up again recently). It's probably the best we could do given the very limited amount of participating companies. They're doing a decent job with character interactions, too. I've been only worried about Higurashi and they are in fact completely irrelevant most of the time, but their initial arc with Aria was absolutely brilliant.

Also, everyone keeps saying Hibiki's like the MC of this, but I feel that in fact Rem and Aria are taking the lead more often than not.

>>134073818
Odd how I have almost the same screencap saved, except mirrored.
>>
What's the most violent ova there is?
Does anything get worse or should I say better than Genocyber or Urotsukidōji?
>>
>>134074028
I think it's more Hibiki is filling the role of every harem MC that's not present in the game

She's definitely one of the most broken characters gameplay wise though

There's a few people itt that seem to have trouble finding links for older shows like this.

bakatbt.me is a semi private tracker, you need to make an account to use the search function on the site and your account is tied to your IP and if you get a bad ratio they kick you. However You don't need an account to use the site or download the torrents, so you can use googles site search feature to do it without a login.

bakabt is all about completed shows too and has just about every older show you can think of, even poorly seeded shows can be quick downloads because of autists who contribute to private trackers and muh ratios. idiots.

Gunsmith Cats also got shorted. It got the OVA, but it was also supposed to be a TV series originally.

Dancouga and it's OVAs are pretty great. Shame the third one has never been subbed.

On second thought I dunno how obscure it is though. I get the feeling people only remember it exists because Wakamoto was in it, and because it pops up in SRW pretty often

Well, they take place at different parts in the manga, the first episode is arguably better in almost every sense. That's mainly because different teams worked on them at the same time. The manga is supposed to be quite good, never been translated though.

As if that many people outside of /a/ and /m/ even know who he is in the first place

Obari didn't do a ton of animation on it until the OVAs though since it was one of the first shows he worked on

Hell at some points in the TV series it's a struggle to call it animated. You can definitely spot his work in the transformation and combination sequences though. For some reason they had multiple versions of those for the same transformations, I guess they couldn't settle on one they liked best.

OVA1 onwards goes full Obari though.
>>
>>134074060
I think people don't abuse Koto enough because she's a complete HP monster with high attack, but yeah, Hibiki's attack boost skill makes her a real killer. Diva is likely stronger, but she's a DLC character so that probably doesn't really count.

I hope he directs another show at some point. Gravion was fun and he did a hell of a lot better job with the second SRW anime than whoever was in charge of the first show and the OVA.

Maybe we'll get an OG Gaiden anime at some point, Obari already did the redesign and choreography for Compatible Kaiser in that game.

They tend not to have stuff licensed by Funimation. Which isn't a problem since that stuff is always well seeded on Nyaa specifically because it's not on BakaBT.

The only time I've ever needed to use Animebytes was for some bluray raws no other site had up yet and some obscure manga scans.

Great OVAs, a lot of fun. Though the end turned into YOU STILL HAVE OXYGEN IN YOUR MUSCLES PUNCH HARDER IPP- AYANE

I'm surprised there isn't more like this and Natsuki Crisis. I'm hesitant to put works like Wanna-Be's and Variable Geo (ESPECIALLY with consideration to Variable Geo Neo) in the same genre but there should be more series revolving around girls straight up fighting. Maybe I'm just unaware of similar works if they exist.

I found a Marie VHS in a record store back when I was probably around 10. Good times, way too short but good times. I had a thing for the mad scientist type so it worked in my favor. The manga is still ongoing but it's not nearly as fun as the OVA, but maybe that's the nostalgia talking.

I want another series or at the very least, the manga to be available to buy in English. Something I'd buy in a heartbeat if it got a translation.

this that manga from the guy in Aoi Hono?

It is slightly better than nothing at all, but not by much.

Most delinquent anime were released as OVAs during the 90s. Unfortunately, all the western VHS market really cared about was marketing gory science fiction pieces.

Yes, I'm surprised none of the manga Shinamoto is available to buy in English considering how popular Aoi Honno was. I figured at least the manga Aoi Honno was based on would be licensed.

>>
>>134069836
It's actually based on a Tsuruta Kenji manga, and you might see people mentioning it in manga threads where people have read Bouken Erekitou, Forget-me-not, or Omoide Emma.

>>134088555
So is there a reason why Gainax doesn't list it on their official website? They animated the OVA, didn't they? Why do they refuse to put it on their projects history?

JUDGE is a horror adaptation where the MC gives ironic punishments to assholes and kills them. It has a pretty cheeky b-movie plot, feels like a paranormal slasher flick with tits&violence that you would see in late night tv.

It really isn't nothing to write home about, but the general idea and final showdown (judge of hell and a prosecutor/priest start having a trial regarding the last victim's life) got me hooked,

What the heck, time to rewatch.
>>
>>134083132
If you want to nostalgia, fuck no. I rewatched the series a couple of years ago (50 eps + ova ?) and got sick from so much rehashed scenes. Zenki's transformation is cool, but once you watch it 100 times in a row, it gets annoying. Don't expect any good plot or crazy revelation.

You might at best watch the ova (a kind of remake with more adult content, it's a standalone story) or read the manga.

I think it just has most extremes. When they have scenes where they obviously focus on the best animation it is incredible, the detail and shading is ridiculous. That webm of the mecha guy moving his hand around is a really good example.

Digital drawings tend to not have as many quality scenes though, but I don't think you often see digitally drawn anime that looks amazing, the bright CGI effects are never impressive.
