Totally Lame Anime: Micro-Commando Diatron-5

Totally Lame Anime logo
Okay, it's not really anime. But it really is Totally Lame.

Micro-Commando Diatron-5 was actually animated in Korea, but then isn't everything animated in Korea these days? Diatron-5, as it's affectionately know by old skool fans, is part of a long tradition in Korea of producing knock off anime. Part of the fun of watching these "Koreanime" is playing spot the ripped off character/robot. Because trying to follow the story is next to impossible.

Didn't think this film was worthy enough to be saved on :-)

Oh yeah. Finding this on was one of those "WHY?" moments.

Also "Raiders of Galaxy" (why not "Protectors of Universe"). I guess someone out there thinks this is uncopyrighted anyway, though let's hope Joe Lai doesn't find out!

Of course I want "Savior of the Earth" up there too!

Please people, you can make it happen!

That poster artwork doesn't match what happened in the movie at all, or did Joseph Lai hack the original?
