Storyline

An evil scientist (Overlord) invents a device that emits a radiation that controls the minds of the people within its range. He gathers a sizable percentage of the Earth on his initial attack, and conventional forces cannot counter-attack as they will also come under the power of the Zone if they enter. Earth's most powerful soldiers are united to combat the menace while wearing their Zone-resistant suits. Each Zone generator is biological in nature and grows to full size and capacity in a matter of minutes. Earth's free forces are faced with the challenge of destroying the generators while resisting the Zone-controlled forces, not to mention how easy it is to re-establish a control Zone. The good guys consist of 5 soldiers that are dropped into special missions by a Zone-resistant plane. The bad guys consist of about 6 guys that are specially treated by Overlord to be Zone-resistant (they still show the red blemishes and retain them whether in or out of a Zone-controlled area) while ...

Hello I am back.......
27 July 2006 | by (China) – See all my reviews

Hi ,my name is Pierre De Celles,I would like to have you know that I was supervising animation director on 'Spiral Zone' and my second in command supervising director was 'Georges Grammat';We had about 11 months and a few weeks to create 65 episodes,of which 15 shows went to 'Akom' in Korea,and the rest to 'Visual 80' in Japan.

It was a very difficult series to produce cause the show was realistic SC.-FI. a bit like 'Akira' the famous Japanese comic strip.

You can check on the website for 'Spiral Zone' # 3,you will find there a devoted bunch of fans,Chris Millar being the first one and in command of the site;I have submitted actual original artwork from the series to him.And we are hoping to get the rights to make all 65 episodes available on DVD format for the fans.

I kept all 65 episodes on tape and some of the Artwork for the last 20 years,I am proud of that because we do not know what was the faith of the negatives,films or 3/4 inch tapes,was everything lost ????? So thank you very for the opportunity to share this with you. Pierre De Celles
