Americans Love M.D. Geist - M.D. Geist would've been another forgotten one-shot OVA from The Eighties had it not been for its success in America. The director's cut of the original and the sequel were actually funded by Central Park Media.
Hype Backlash - During The Nineties, 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 arguably many worse titles).
