Lovable classic!
18 May 2004 | by (Craven County, NC USA) – See all my reviews

With the earlier forms of Anime, or Japanese Animation to the uninitiated, from Voltron, Tranzor Z, and Yamato, I have to say that Locke the Superman was among the uniquely done animated features of its time. I purchased a copy of the video back in 1992 for a mere $10.00 from a local video store. I had been searching all over Maine for something Japanese animated after watching Osamu Tezuka's "Unico" on the Disney channel. I became instantly addicted to the style! That was in 1988. After finding the feature, I watched it once & was surprised at how well-done Yuki Hijiri did in creating Locke & the other characters! KUDOS to Hijiri-san for a job well done!
