Wow! Now only if there was more....., 13 February 2001
Author: superc13 from Connecticut, USA

What a tease! One of the most magnificent anime films I've seen, and that's it, no more. I believe there was supposed to be a television series to follow up, but it never happened. Either way, it's based on a large series of manga (which has never been translated) so at least Japanese fans had something to sate them. The highlight of this one is the giant mecha, or "mortar heads", very cool stuff indeed!
