Goofs

The plot suffers an inconsistency in that Cobra/Johnson is supposed to have been on Earth goofing around for five years, yet is built like a muscleman. Anyone forced to adopt a new identity would know to give up their old habits and lifestyle; Cobra would have let himself go during the surgeries and before his memory was erased so as to look less conspicuous.

Not just for dorkey teens
7 November 2005 | by garbagefanukSee all my reviews

This anime was underrated and still is. Hardly the dorky kids movie as noted, i still come back to this 10 years after i first saw it. One of the better movies released.

The animation while not perfect is good, camera tricks give it a 3D feel and the story is still as good today even after i grew up and saw ground-breakers like Neon Genesis Evangelion and RahXephon. It has nowhere near the depth obviously but try to see it from a lighthearted view. It's a story to entertain, not to question.

Still one of my favourites I come back too when i feel like a giggle on over more lighthearted animes. Not to say its a childish movies, there are surprisingly sad moments in this and you need a sense of humour to see it all.
