SPIRIT OF THE DECADE: 7 Shows no one will watch

January 12, 2010 at 12:00 pm 2 comments

Yeah, it’s that time again. Gems from the decade that no one will watch due to lack of hype or even people noticing it enough to hype it. Unlike MUDAZUMO NAKI KAIKAKU: THE LEGEND OF KOIZUMI. Which will be watched by almost everyone.

In no particular order…

7. Overman King Gainer

WTF?: It’s about how mankind living in sheltered cities due to natural disasters (read: GLOBAL WARMING OR SOME SHIT) and WAR. And how a bunch of them want out. Enter the nerd who’s about to help them do it: a video gamer who has been accosted by a “terrorist” who’s helping them. And his hilariously-designed giant robot. Thing.

Why?: It’s too silly. Too silly, even for a robot show. Even if it had the best OP ever sung by Fukuyama Yoshiki. Even the OP is silly.

6. Mushi-Uta

WTF?: Mushi-uta’s story takes place in the near future. Ten years before the story’s opening, strange insect-like creatures known as “Mushi” began appearing. The Mushi are able to consume peoples’ dreams and thoughts in return for supernatural powers. At the end of episode one, protagonist Daisuke “Kakkou” Kusuriya encounters a young girl named Shiika Anmoto. The two, in time, become quite close. However, unbeknownst to Kakkou, Shiika is an escapee from a secret prison known as GARDEN where those posessed by the Mushi, known as the Mushitsuki are held. GARDEN’s military force, the Special Environmental Conservation Executive Office, dispatches its finest killer to track down Shiika. However, they are faced with resistance from the Mushibane resistance organisation, led by the secretive “Ladybird”. (Plot Summary taken from ANN, I have some emotional attachment to this show)

Why?: Went completely unnoticed when it aired. I’m totally serious about this.

5. Astro Fighter Sunred

WTF?: Tokusatsu Slice-of-Life Parody. No seriously.

Why?: Not enough hype. And when the few people promoting it are a troll (read: ME) and an asshole, you know what happens.

4. Strange Dawn

WTF?: Two high-school kids are transported to a world where it’s inhabitants are no taller than their ANKLE. And these teent people live in a fantasy world. No kidding.

Why?: I remember watching this show when I was young. Bloody hell, it was fun to watch, even if I didn’t get it. It’s too strange, even though I wanna watch it again.


WTF?: Futuristic Space Races and the totally rocking story of CAPTAIN FALCON. Complete with MANLY ENDING.

Why?: Went completely unnoticed when it aired. I’m totally serious about this.

2. Monoke

WTF?: What Is This I don’t Ev- I mean, A medicine seller fights spirits.

Why?: Too Arthouse.

1. Kaiba

WTF?: One day a man, Kaiba, wakes up in a broken room. He has no memories, only a pendant with a picture of an unknown woman. Outside of the room are grotesque floating electrical clouds of disjointed memories. Kaiba is suddenly assaulted, and escapes into space. He travels to various planets, encountering various people and retrieving his memories. Memories of an inconsistent and decaying world, of his own agony and of Niero, the woman in the picture. (Plot Summary taken from ANN)

Why?: Too Arthouse.

I think I might to watch them. Sunred and Overman King Gainer excepting, of course.

    Hey I tried to watch Mushi-uta ep 1 once. But I think the entire episode was at night, and also green for some reason, so I couldn’t see anything in the raw.

    Kaiba is awesome and I already had several eps of Mononoke downloaded to watch soon.

    Sunred definitely deserves much more attention. It’s entertaining, has great characters and a lot of hilarious moments. Plus the eps are only 10 minutes long so it’s a short but satisfying show.
