Buy it, you know you want to For hardcore gore fans only! The good: More holy shit moments of unspeakable gore that you though you would ever see ever. The bad: Paper thin plot, the story sucks since it's there just as an excuse to show insane ammounts of extreme gore. The catch: They only made two animes The bright side: they are both here uncut! Here is a review: The two episode long Kakugo no Susume OAV series from 1996, based on the manga by Takayuki Yamaguchi, is the most viscerally violent and gruesome anime I've ever seen, and it's arguably the most grotesque anime ever made. Since first seeing it years ago, it's always reminded me of an apocalyptic and brutal parallel to Peter Jackson's comedy of profanity Meet the Feebles, right down to the depiction of a character being eaten, partially melted by digestive acids, then regurgitated while still alive, albeit alive for a short time. Kakugo no Susume revels in brutality and degradation, from energizing its powered armor suits with the blood of martyrs to the mutated sexuality of its monsters that takes the crude, animalistic aspect of sex to the extreme of sex as violence. The depiction of dismemberments and exposed intestines is a mere starting point for the atrocities illustrated in this anime. Kakugo no Susume takes its extremes to such degrees that it defies qualitative assessment. The anime has irrefutably ugly character designs; its grimy, dirty atmosphere is uncomfortable even for viewers; and the two episode series has very little character or story development. But the intense gore and shocking violence in the show is so extreme that it alone is justification enough for the show, at least to viewers interested in seeing over-the-top splatter. Basically, Kakugo no Susume isn't a story filled with gore; it's gore contained by a thin story that only exists to provide some context for the violence. The Kakugo no Susume OAV series is available in America under the name "Apocalypse Zero."
