The Good,The Bad,and the Ugly of anime have gotten a whole lot cool
24 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I first started collecting this series on DVD,I have to say out of all the shows with lots of Mecha,this one is the greatest. I want to say that this series is like a western film,and it has lots of amazing things in this show. The character's I liked in this series are:Van,Ray,and Priscilla,and the Eldora 4. But what series really explains to us is that we all want vengeance to get back at someone for what they do. And another that this series explains to us is that everybody has a different path to take,and what they must do. But however,this is one of the coolest shows to see. So if you are looking for something cool,then get this series,and you will see what I mean!
