An Action Packed Silly Mis-adventure

by -

It may only be 6 episodes but the show doesn't leave you wanting. Follow Photon Earth, the simple minded, super-human strengthed, big-hearted young boy as he travels with the beautiful maiden from space, Keyne, and childhood friend Aun in search of Keyne's grandpa's lost technology and fight the evil Papacharino. This great cast of characters will have you laughing with tears with their great comedic timing. Also be warned if perverted comedy is not your thing you may want to look elsewhere. The DVD comes nicely presented with good disc art featuring Photon and Keyne and single page title screen. The transfer it is great with no playback issues(image, subtitle, or audio mishaps). If you like the other shows studio AIC makes you’ll enjoy this. Also, Photon is connected to the tenchiverse and you can definitely see the influence. Happy to add this show to my collection.

A real hidden gem.


One of the great golden age anime.
While this title may not have the fame of other golden age features it can easily stand on its own among other greats.
The humor is fun. The story is charming and if you want a character who is unique in anime Photon Earth is it.
What makes him so wonderful is he does the right thing, he doesn't talk about why, it never seems to occurs to him that there are other choices. In any other anime the character would go on and on about doing the right thing. Here you have a character who simply doesn't understand that there are options beyond the right thing. Instead of coming off as unbelievable, you get a wonderfully pure character that just works.
How is he so strong? The same way One Punch Man is. Both characters share a description of how they get their power.
The only thing I would ding the series for is that it is censored in places. If an uncensored version gets released, I will be buying it immediately.
