Trivia:
There are many references to Blade Runner: - The band is called "The Replicants"; - The general mission in both is to kill androids who are almost too human; - There happen to be characters named Leon and Priss in both; - Both feature a huge, pyramid-shaped building.See more »
Quotes:
Priscilla S. Asagiri "Priss":You'd better work out, or you won't be able to fit in your suit.
Nene Romanova:Ha! I contribute to the Knight Sabers with my good looks and amazing brain. I never want to be such an ape woman like you are. Besides, if you really are as hot as you say you are then how come I had to give you a speeding ticket?

Finally, the classic series given the treatment it deserves., 5 January 1999
Author: Vegeta-2 from Tennessee

The DVD set of this series is excellent. The sound is great, and the picture quality is perfect, even surpassing the laserdisc release. The ability to watch it in the original Japanese without subtitles covering the picture is nice, also. All 8 episodes are in the set, which is a steal at about $50 (compared to about $120 for the tapes, or around $100 for the laserdiscs, if you can even find them). My only complaint is that the music videos are compressed really badly, giving them an M-PEG look, and compared to how the actual episodes look in this set, that low quality is unacceptable. Still, that one complaint aside, this set is more than worth the money if you like this series even a little.
