Great animated movie!
6 June 2004 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Unico: To The Magic Island or Unico: In The Island Of Magic is a very unusual animated film! Its funny and has a very dark theme to it. The music is good and fits the film. The animation is very good and is similar like the animation seen in Voltron: Defender of the Universe. The color of the cartoon is really beautiful. It has some great effects when it comes to the storms, rain, and all of the magic scenes. The English voices are cool. I thought that the voice and the look of Kuruku was really fitting. This is a very hard to find movie because its out of print and if you find this tape any where on the web, at a video store, or at some type of sale buy it immediately especially if it ha sit original case! This really is a great animated film! If you like animated features and want to see one with a dark nature and store then Unico: In The Island Of Magic is the one to watch!
