Guy gets his ghost kidnapped by the AFLAC duck who carries it to another dimension. There he has wings that come out of his feet, meets a fairy who he says he'd live with if she had a convenience store, and also meets a mercenary named Giant Towelrod. Goes back to earth after making rocks fall on a bunch of bad guys and flies off (literally) on his motorcycle with his girlfriend. You like anime and MST3K? Give this a shot.

I find myself at a loss, my paltry words far too inadequate to describe the opus of ineptitude one witnesses upon placing this DVD in their player. Confusing, cheap, rushed, literally translated and poorly acted- all these descriptions will spring to mind when trying to sum up the glorious mess of "Garzey's Wing". But don't be mistaken, this mini-series is more than just the sum of those parts, which actually combine into a perfect storm of cinematic failure.

The original Japanese scriptwriters could have learned a lot about pacing and exposition from Ed Wood, and the English voice actors could have learned almost as much about their craft. If you enjoy cinematic cheese you OWE it to yourself to watch this mini-series, preferably with friends.

There are great anime. There are good anime. There are mediocre anime. And there are anime whose eye-searing badness tears holes in the universe.

Guess what kind of anime "Garzey's Wing" is. This is not just a simple, ordinary bad anime -- it's an incoherent, incomprehensible, brain-melting mess, graced with choppy editing and a dub that makes my ears bleed. It's literally impossible to understand half of what's going on, and the other half makes no sense.

Chris is driving to his hometown when his spirit is swept away by... a giant goose. I am not kidding. After getting dropped through some kind of dimensional rift, he emerges stark naked in a medieval world, with a pixie tangled in his necklace and a pair of giant wings on his ankles.

The sight of him causes the Metomeus tribe, who are slaves to the Ashigaba kingdom, to rebel against their masters in the next two minutes. They believe that Chris is a holy warrior destined to help them rebuild their country, but the Ashigaba army is hot on their heels. Chris must protect the mystical priestess Hassan and defend the ex-slaves from the dinosauresque War Beasts.

And to make matters even MORE complicated, Chris' body is TOTALLY UNAFFECTED by the loss of his soul, and they communicate through a magical necklace. All of his friends, by the way, immediately accept that his soul is off fighting in another world instead of getting him psychiatric help.

I still boggles my mind that "Garzey's Wing" was not only directed but WRITTEN by Yoshiyuki Tomino (who created the Gundam franchise).

The only reason to buy this is if you really want to see how bad an anime can go and how awful dubbing really can be butchered. There are not many anime out there that is this awful and stupid and silly all at the same time, and yet some how I'm in awe how something like this even got made. This is one big pile of mess and I love it for that reason alone!

DO NOT buy this expecting anything remotely good here. This is a train wreck of a movie and a confusing mess of a plot with a horrific dub. Go into this with your expectations low and then realize after all this, You probably watched one of the worst anime of all time.

If you're looking for legit entertainment: Don't buy this. If you want to get some friends together and make fun of this completely bizarre and borderline incomprehensible story, DO buy this. The English dub is so bad, on the quality scale it goes below "awful," bypasses "Crap" completely, and circles back to "mildly amusing." It's easy and fun to watch this and just laugh at the poorly acted dialogue.

I saw this movie right after seeing Legend of Lemnear (bought the 2-pack), so maybe anything looks better but I didn't mind this movie. True it's not the greatest movie I've ever seen but it's entertaining. There's interesting fighting and the typical fantasy theme of normal person sent to another world. I even found the idea unique that rather than his whole self being sent there, only his subconcious is and his physical mind and body are left in his world. Oh yeah I was kinda surprised that he spends the first five minutes naked and fights demons in the nude as well. Hmmmm, nope, nothing wrong with that. Heheh, it's not like they showed anything and it's a welcome change from seeing naked women all the time in anime.
So as long as you watch this subtitled in Japanese, it's possible to enjoy yourself. However I found watching it dubbed quite humorous. It turned a simple fantasy anime into a very hilarious comedy.

It truly sounds like these voice actors are trying to do a bad job. How is it possible to sound this way. I don't understand. It's like those old kung fu or Godzilla movies that everyone always makes fun of. Actually, it's more like when someone is making fun of kung fu or Godzilla movies and puposely exagerating how bad it can sound. Oh gosh this movie is funny. Actually you may wanna buy this movie just to hear for yourself how bad the dub is.
