One only for the Manga-fanatics!
1 December 2000 | by (Great Yarmouth, England) – See all my reviews

Ok, so the film is korny and lacks any true depth, but as an avid Manga fan what isn't there to love about this film. The Bio suits are almost magical to look at and the fight scenes are quite fantastic. The transition between animation and motion picture is also somewhat impressive depsite the lack of special FX's in the film and the storyline despite being poorly acted, is commendable for its sheer effort in maintaining any serious sense of sci-fi/action between the slow moving plot scenes.
