Quotes

Miss Ayumi: [teaching class] When the poet says "Oh,to substantialize this supasataitias ontelogical quitity." he is expressing something that I think you'll agree is central to most people's lives.At the same time,what does it tell us about his absurdest views of human existence?A good question.Then his obsession with ecumenical transcendentalism is revealing.

One of my favorite animes!
17 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

Well, to start, I saw this movie on VHS about 10 years ago. I was amazed at how well Project A-Ko was written and animated. I bought the DVD version just the other day. The fight between A-Ko and B-Ko was well drawn, and is one of the best fight scenes ever. I mean that it got to the point where they were throwing Earth and alien military tanks at each other!!!

There also were quite a few hilarious scenes. The 4 scenes where the guy that was looking for C-Ko gets pummeled by A-Ko's superhuman speed was one of them. Another was A-Ko and B-Ko rescuing C-Ko. A-Ko jumps onto military fighter airplane that's in mid-air, and the airplane gets destroyed because she was distracting the pilot.
