39: Anime Koukyoushi: Jungle Taitei

Japanese: アニメ交響詩 ジャングル大帝
MAL Score: 6.48
Type: OVA
Episodes: 1

Synopsis

Actually, that 1991 date is misleading. The Symphonic Poem originated with the music Isao Tomita wrote for Jungle Emperor in 1965. He re-worked his music into a long form which tells a story by itself. (This form of music was termed “symphonic poem” or “tone poem” by composers in the late Romantic era.) So music that was written originally to enhance visual story telling became the story teller.

Tomita’s symphonic poem was recorded in the mid-60s and issued on LP in Japan. More than once, in fact. It has also been on CD more than once.

In 1991, Tezuka Productions turned the process upside down and created new animation to illustrate the symphonic poem. The story is basically that of the first Kimba episode. We see the peaceful animal kingdom under Panja, the coming of the hunters, Eliza’s capture and Panja’s death. Kimba is born and escapes back to Africa. All this told without a single word spoken. The style of the Symphonic Poem’s animation is unique. It draws heavily on the style of the 1989 TV series, but Kimba looks different from the way he looked in any other production.

1: Hellsing Ultimate

English: Hellsing Ultimate
Japanese: HELLSING OVA
MAL Score: 8.38
Type: OVA
Episodes: 10

Synopsis

There exist creatures of darkness and evil that plague the night, devouring any human unfortunate enough to be caught in their grasp. On the other side is Hellsing, an organization dedicated to destroying these supernatural forces that threaten the very existence of humanity. At its head is Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing, who commands a powerful military and spends her life fighting the undead.

Integra’s vast army, however, pales in comparison with her ultimate weapon: the vampire Alucard, who works against his own kind as an exterminator for Hellsing. With his new vampire servant, Seras Victoria, at his side, Alucard must battle not only monsters, but all those who stand to oppose Hellsing, be they in the guise of good or evil.

In a battle for mankind’s survival, Hellsing Ultimate proves that appearances are not all they may seem, and sometimes the greatest weapon can come in the form of one’s worst nightmare.
