Armitage III != Poly Matrix
11 May 2005 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

There was an OVA of Armitage III made that consisted of 4 episodes.

This was later cut down to make the Movie, Poly Matrix. Poly Matrix is a good movie, if you like it I suggest you look for the original OVA as it's the same thing, only about twice as long and explains more of the plot.

After Poly Matrix came Dual matrix, which is much more recent and uses far more advanced animation and is also, in my opinion, a better movie.

Overall, Armitage is a good series, it's not quite as action packed as most anime's are and in fact comes across as a more sensitive movie, but it's till very enjoyable.
