Crappy: I Give Up – There Are Wings On His Feet

It took me a whole day to get through one and a half hour. Three OVAs should take less than a day. It wasn’t a case of me having to do a lot of thing, I had all the time in the world. It was more a thing of me not being able to endure more than ten minutes at a time of this terrible thing. (also, I happened to fall asleep in the middle of the thing at one point.)

Garzey’s Wing, orΒ Byston Well Monogatari: Garzey no Tsubasa, is a very simple anime. They fight. The problem is, I have no idea if this is supposed to be serious or if it’s a parody or maybe a comedy. I imagine that they were aiming for a serious fantasy anime but it is hard to swallow the fact that certain things, like the mc repeatedly falls of his horse like a lump of potatoes in one OVA or, in the same episode actually (all the jokes are in OVA two by the way. That’s when they realised that a little bit of comedy could be nice.) he leans a little to close to the fire and, well, he is suddenly on fire.

So, what is this sad thing about anyway? It’s about Chris. Chris is like any other teenage kid on a motorbike in the middle of the 90s. Chris has a necklace with little bells on. One day Chris decides to drive home to his hometown and when he drives past a shrine his necklace starts to jump. Yup, it jumps. Suddenly, Chris’s soul is kidnapped by a giant goose. The goose flies off to some other dimension where it drops him off. Naked. He ends up among some fighting tribe members, still naked, with wings attached to his feet. This is where I get (even more) lost because all I can focus on is his crotch and the fact that the animators has given the guy pubes but the dick is missing. Where the hell did his dick go and why does he have pubes? It takes me probably a minute or so to ponder about this mystery before I turn my attention to the wings on his feet. Why the hell does his feet have wings? Like seriously, why on the feet? Isn’t it more practical to have them on, say, the back? And again, where is his dick?? Who took it? So, no dick, feet winged boy Chris also has a little fairy or what ever hanging on his necklace. Yup, she’s just hanging there. She hitched a ride from some world he passed on his way down to where ever the hell he is now.

It’s the dickless holy warrior and his little companion

Okay, so that was the first 3 minutes and 43 seconds. (yes, I looked at the time)

Moving on then; the rest of the OVAs are more or less about some endless war between this tribe and some other tribe (I think. It is very unclear, but they ride on giant and a little less giant dinosaur creatures on steroids. It could be some sort of Romans gone bad if this was during the classical era in our world. But it isn’t and I am still not sure who these bad guys really are.) Chris is supposedly this holy warrior who has come to save this tribe. A woman named Hassan has tingled her bells and called for him to come (thus his soul getting snatched and losing his dick) and save them all. At his help he has these wings on his feet, the Garzey’s Wing, but those are pretty unreliable. They seem to live a life of their own, coming out whenever they feel appropriate and not always when Chris needs them. At some point he suddenly can talk to himself in the other reality and he has these conversations with himself about how to defeat the enemy. His real self suggests cool kendo moves and helium ballons (so, is this a comedy or what?) but he kind of gets annoyed with himself and admonishes himself by asking if he thinks that there are any stores where he is. Come on man, how is he supposed to know that? Soul in one place, body in another. Well, he has some help from himself. Also, his buddies apparently are totally okey with him being able to communicate with his soul who is fighting a war in some strange fantasy land with fairies and dinosaurs.

Well, what can I say. Nothing really. It is a waste of time. Oh yeah, I watched the dub. I wish I could say that it was hilarious but yeah, no, I can’t. It was just sad. I wonder where they found the voice actors? And if they maybe got instructions that they should sound like total idiots? I can’t even describe it, it’s something one has to hear to understand. I am curious about how the Japanese version sounds but unfortunately I couldn’t find it and I am not gonna bother to look now. Also, I usually like the dub on old anime like that because they generally are good. Just not this one. (I doubt it would make a difference though, it is garbage no matter how you see it.) It has one thing going for it though; the ED is dope. I really love the ED. It’s lovely. It’s 90s lovely. Did I mention I love the 90s? I think I did. This song is very 90s and I really like it very much. (and I am gonna admit that Chris is rather cute, even though he is dickless.)

It is available on YouTube for anyone who wants to watch it. I am not gonna recommend anyone to do it though. But, for your convenience; here it is.

  1. I saw you updated this on MAL and was about to ask you what you thought, then I found this post like 2 minutes after you posted it!

    The creator of this show had an idea for a huge 13 episode story in mind and was forced to condense it to three short episodes, but he didn’t want to cut anything out so it turned into a complete mess.

    The appeal of this show is the voice acting and the only real reason why you would watch it, some people find their acting the most “so bad its good” acting out there but if like me, you didn’t find it funny, then there is nothing for you here.

    Some people love this show for it’s stupidity though, and don’t worry nobody can follow along with the events, it’s just stupid.

    1. I wonder what appeal there is in the voice acting. Sure, I only saw the dub but the dialogue is horrible and I can’t imagine they have changed that in the dub. There is absolutely nothing funny in it as I can see. This isn’t a so bad it’s funny kind of anime, it’s just plain bad. It could be funny if you actually got what was going on and you knew who the dudes are.

      How do you know it was supposed to be 13 episodes? All I can find is the director not wanting to talk about it at all.

      1. Yeah the idea is that you enjoy the english dub ironically and don’t pay attention to the story, in my opinion it’s an overated so bad it’s good show but it still has a massive following.

        Oh it’s obvious it should have been longer, I’m just guessing really but it’s very clear the creator wanted to have the story over a larger amount of episodes because he really valued millions of extra things thrown in!

      2. I wish I could enjoy it ironically but I can’t even do that, it’s just so bad. It’s such a long stretch to claim it is funny ironically. Then you (well, not you, you, they you) don’t really know what irony is. (sorry peeps but yeah…)

        I’m not sure the intention was for it to be longer, but I agree that he wanted to get it all in there. All the vital parts of the source material. As I wrote, the few interviews (yeah, non interviews since he refuses to talk about it) he just says pretty much, no comment to it. If the case was that he didn’t get more episodes he could at least have blamed that on the mess he created. He has nothing but himself to blame now. Ah well, we’ll never know though since he is silent as a mouse about it.

      3. Yeah I’m sure he wants to forget all about it and get it off his record. It’s funny that he actually did interviews about it, I wonder if he’s ever done something where he explains the whole show.

        It’s amazing how many people won’t get irony, I made this post called 10 reasons why anime sucks using terrible arguments to point out how stupid they were and nobody got it even though it was on an anime blog, praising it every week!

      4. The interviews I found was more like on cons and such in the passing. So, no sit down interviews as I understood it. I think he refused any such thing. I know I would have if I were him.

        It’s hard to understand irony as it is and in writing it gets even harder, especially if you don’t always get it when spoken. A lot is in the way people act and if they don’t know you and can “hear” you when they read what you have written then it is hard. And then I don’t think that people are attentive enough to see the irony or sarcasm or whatever in a text either. They just read the words without feeling.

  2. I was actually pretty immersed in the story for this anime when the post started. But then it got bad…I mean as soon as there is something as huge as someone going dickless…that’s the moment it all goes flying straight to hell. (No matter if you have wings on your feet). I am also taking a guess here, but that mystery probably never got resolved did it?
    There is another mystery though: how can you fall asleep when you are watching a masterpiece such as this? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€” That really baffles me to no end πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Well….I have to admire the fact that you are still enduring all this crappy anime. Totally bad ass of you 😊😊

    1. It almost happened twice. 😳 πŸ™ˆ No, the mystery was never solved. Or rather, I guess they were a little sensitive to the whole sexuality thing so they just though that leaving a vital part of a man out was a better choice than actually draw at least something like a little penis on him. The fact that heads and arms and legs are flying around is not at all important. Because hey, that’s just violent. But a penis, OH MY GOD!!! 😱 Scarred for life. πŸ™ˆ

      I have a plan to watch one everyday February out but I am not sure I can endure it. Then again, it’s not like I am watching Garzey’s Wing everyday. I have a list to go after. Every anime I chose has to have a score lower than 5 on MAL. And preferably not be a whole season unless the episodes are shorties. But a movie is okey although I whould prefer an OVA a 30 minutes. Let’s see how this goes.

  3. Haha…yeah…that is something that you see a lot in anime. Genitals are never shown. Pretty weird to see it depicted in that way though.

In between it’s just a hassle and also, I never get any fun mail, only spam or newsletters. I have such a boring life. 😩 Spam can be fun though. I have gotten a lot of mail about lending money from some German company. There are also emails about getting a longer penis and viagra. I see the connection; i need money to elongate my penis and when I get a long dong I need viagra to make it stand. Oh, it’s the illuminati at play here. I thought spam mail were based on what sites you were registered at with your email adress and such? Or am I wrong? Not sure how any of these three apply to my life?
