Time to get serious . . .
24 June 2002 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

Wow. That's all I can say after watching this little animated feature. A 5 part OAV series, Genocyber is, without the shadow of a doubt, the most brutal, traumatizing and gory anime I have ever seen in my entire animation viewing career. Easily, this one tops MD geist, and perhaps even Fist of the North Star. This thing is a chaotic rumpo through a sci-fi world of death and destruction. I'll admit, I was amused watching this. The plot stunk, seriously. The character have nothing special to look at or think about, seriously. Just the gore, the chaos, and the madness made me sit and watch with my mouth dropped. It is this factor alone that allows me to safely say that Genocyber is not a bad movie at all. I recommend this one to anyone who doesn't mind seeing guys vivisected on gurneys, or children getting blown to bits by machine guns. It's sick, but for some reason, entertainting. Score : 7 / 10
