About Chargeman Ken! DVD

Chargeman Ken! The Complete Series contains episodes 1-65.

It is the year 2074. In a world threatened by aliens... an unlikely hero emerges! Ken Izumi may look like an ordinary 10-year-old boy, but he secretly possesses weapons, armor, and accessories that transform him into the superheroic Chargeman Ken. Ken protects his mom, dad, little sister Caron, robot pal Barican, and the rest of mankind from the diabolical Juralians, shape-shifting alien invaders bent on terrorizing the earth with flesh-eating butterflies, booby-trapped scientists, an evil doll, a prison break, alien mummies, a kid that sets stuff on fire, a song that makes you die... basically, they have about 65 plans for world domination.

The only thing standing between the fragile human race and conquest by the Juralians is Chargeman Ken and his unquenchable thirst for fiery, atomic justice!

Chargeman Ken originally ran on Japanese broadcast television in 1974. This delightfully bizarre kids’ cartoon was rediscovered in 2007 by Japanese fans, who flocked to Chargeman Ken for its strange artwork, clumsy animation, and fantastically inept stories... some of which have been banned from Japanese TV altogether.

Best drinking game anime!

by

Discotek licensed Chargeman Ken on the basis that it's "so bad it's good". And the description is incredibly accurate! Every possible thing that can be wrong with anime is on full display here and the result is an amazing fun time!
I do wish that they had included their episode descriptions from Crunchyroll on each disc for that disc's episodes though. Those descriptions were amazing (and pointed out an episode where you could see a pair of human hands for a frame!)

The best worst anime I've seen in a long time

by -

An absolutely charming train wreck of a show. It's legendarily bad, with lots of reused animation frames, bad editing, ridiculous plots, and even a scene later in the episode count where one of the animators' hand is in frame.

If you want a show for your "Bad Anime Night," this one fits the bill, and isn't full of fanservice, so even the kiddos can join in the fun!

Is there any anime character stronger than Chargeman Ken? Probably not.

by

Chargeman Ken is a masterwork of fiction. The basic plot is that all of the prophesied messiahs throughout history (Jebus, Optimus Prime, Goku, etc) have been scientifically proven to be unable to save the Earth. Fortunately, Chargeman Ken has stepped in to do the job of our lazy saviors.

The overuse of recycled animation symbolizes how those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

The hair that appears at random symbolizes how our hero escapes from hairy situations.

The ineptitude of the villains mirrors the evildoers of real life, who enact ridiculous schemes for seemingly no reason before their brutal execution by our great hero.

Buy it.
