OBSCURE O.V.A.S, *Dead Leaves
This was a one-shot OVA by produced Production IG(Ghost In The Shell), and created by Gainax who did FLCL and Gurren Lagann. It was an original anime not based on any manga.
Taking place in the distant future, two amensiac fugitives find themselves in the middle of the desert. After a quick crime spree, they’re caught and sentenced to a prision on what’s left of the moon. Once there, they team up with the other inmates to do the ultimate prision break. This leads to some amazingly cartoonish fight scenes. It’s literally like a cross between Tom & Jerry and Quinton Tarentino. It leads up to a big battle, an immature pregnancy, and lots of explosions and violence.
A censored version of Dead Leaves has been featured on Sci-Fi Channel’s Ani-Monday, and a few other cable TV showings. It’s a great sci-fi anime with quirky character designs, over-the-top action, and some serious reality-challenging physics!
