"It felt more like a documentary and special DVD bonus than an anime"

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

  1. It's not a direct adaptation of the manga instead it was a promotional video for the manga.
  2. It feels more like a documentary and musical rather than an officially released anime.
  3. Very poor English voice acting. In fact most of the voice actors are Japanese-Americans and it has English acting until the very end.
  4. Poorly written and cheesy songs and one of them being too loud it can cause ear damage.
  5. Poor audio quality which can be too loud and was rushed during production.
  6. The Making of and Behind the scenes video are the the 2nd half of the OVA.
  7. The characters are downgraded to one-dimensional since this isn't a direct adaptation of the manga.
  8. The second credits are used for the end of the 1st half instead of the ending.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. It did promote a manga that's well received by critics and readers.
  2. It can be cheesy fun by many.
