| An awful oddity
One of the things that are a norm in multimedia is how sometimes you will get oddballs released to the public. Rarities that are 1 in thousands, as beautifully crafted presentations or just awful things that makes you question why did they even cared to release such things to the public. Another common thing is how people always orbits towards something only because there's a big name or a known face within the production of said multimedia project. Musashi Gun-doh is such thing.

Created indirectly by Monkey Punch (famous for creating Lupin the Third) since he created the story but this one was originally scrapped, Musashi Gun-doh is a weird thing to both explain and witness. The show premiered in 2006, the same series as the popular Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, yet the show looks almost like if it came from the 60's. It features dreadful art direction, looping animations, outlines clearly visible in the characters, lack of sound effects in some scenes, no effort put on lip-syncing, backgrounds changing in irregular ways, etc. It is truly something worth watching, but for the wrong reasons.

The story isn't that bad, in fact it could be something decent with some retouches, however that wasn't the case. Musashi Gun-doh is a weird series, almost unreal to even accept its own existence, but still is remembered by some people. Ultimately, if the show can be enjoyed ironically or not, is up to the viewer.
