Cipher is a single OVA anime by studio Magic Bus in 1989. Its not an adaptation to the manga of the same name instead its a promotional video for the manga.
Why It Sucks
- It's not a direct adaptation of the manga instead it was a promotional video for the manga.
- It feels more like a documentary and musical rather than an officially released anime.
- Very poor English voice acting. In fact most of the voice actors are Japanese-Americans and it has English acting until the very end.
- Poorly written and cheesy songs and one of them being too loud it can cause ear damage.
- Poor audio quality which can be too loud and was rushed during production.
- The Making of and Behind the scenes video are the the 2nd half of the OVA.
- The characters are downgraded to one-dimensional since this isn't a direct adaptation of the manga.
- The second credits are used for the end of the 1st half instead of the ending.
- It did promote a manga that's well received by critics and readers.
- It can be cheesy fun by many.
