I watched this at a recent anime festival at the university. Having never heard of it, I had no idea what to expect, and as it turns out, it's a remarkably funny science-fiction adventure.
Maris is a dirt-poor bounty hunter from a planet that no longer exists, owing largely to the fact that it exploded years ago. Everyone from this particular planet seems to be blessed (cursed?) with extraordinary strength, and Maris is forced to contain this strength by wearing special restraints, lest she accidentally destroy her ship. This time, her mission is to rescue a handsome millionaire who's been kidnapped by mysterious villains.
The movie has a decent plot but its strength lies in its sight gags and original characters. One of the best running gags is how desperately poor both the hero and the villains are; Maris keeps accidentally trashing her spaceships and being downgraded even further, and the villains can only seem to afford an ancient, second-rate fortress that's falling apart.
Anyway, if you have the opportunity to see this slightly old but very unique and funny anime, go for it! 8/10
