[=MD Geist=] is a one-shot {{OVA}} that was virtually ignored during its original Japanese release in 1986, but acquired a cult following among American anime fans when it was dubbed in English by CentralParkMedia during the early 1990s. It still has a small following of fans who enjoy the anime's pervasive nihilism. And a few other fans enjoy it for being SoBadItsGood.

Added DiffLines:

* AbandonedArea: Nearly every scene falls under this category. Considering Jerra has been ravaged by war, this makes way too much sense.

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguouslyEvil: Krauser. Even though he rescued all those people and kept them save from the wasteland, the plot implies he's just a narcissistic tyrant who only rescued them so he could be worshipped like a messiacal figure while not actually caring about his people, and it's also implied his people work under hard labour. However it's never really made clear if he genuinely has good intentions or not.

* BadAss: Like it or not, Geist and Krauser are huge badasses, as is Colonel Krutz from the first OVA.

* RuleOfCool: MD Geist isn't so much a "story" as more of a showcase of HumongousMecha, StuffBlowingUp, Geist being a {{Badass}} and cool music.
