* SoBadItsGood: While it's technically incompetent and the dubbing is [[{{Narm}} hilariously awful]], it can honestly be a lot of fun. It occupies a similar niche of enjoyment to ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight Castlevania: Symphony of the Night]]'s original English dub; it's incredibly goofy and questionably executed, but entertaining in spite of itself.

* HypeBacklash: During TheNineties, Central Park Media (the company that produced the English dub) hyped the release of the OVA so much, that they made Geist himself the "spokesmecha" of their U.S. Manga Corps division. Many anime snobs who dislike ''M.D. Geist'' go as far as to declare it the "worst anime" they ever saw (even though there are many worse titles).

%%* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The only morally upright characters in the entire show are either very quickly killed or get very little screen time. It can be a bit draining.

%%* {{Narm}}: The dub especially.

animation errors and the poor dubbing make ''MD Geist'' a much more hilarious experience than was likely intended.

Added DiffLines:

** For that matter, ''MD Geist II'' is significantly prettier and, while perhaps [[MindScrew a little less coherent,]] certainly more original than the first OVA's "what if there was a bizarro-world version of ''Fist of the North Star''" HighConcept.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: In the original Japanese version, at least in the Director's Cut version. Geist is voiced by Kazuhiro Nakata, who is also the actual Japanese dub voice of [[Franchise/LooneyTunes Marvin The Martian]], whose main goal in life is [[spoiler:destroy Earth because it was blocking his view of Venus]]. At the end of the OVA, he exactly does that, except in another planet and for more [[ForTheEvulz selfish reasons]].

** Central Park Media founder John O'Donnell loved the series as such where it actually made the staff at CPM disgusted with their founder's fascination with it, if the comments of [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/buried-treasure/2008-10-02/buried-garbage-m.d-geist Anime News Network's Justin Sevakis]] are any indication as he used to work with the company.
