Quotes

Sengoku: This is bullshit, why hasn't my sentence been reduced?
Varsus: Correction, because you deliberately disobeyed Hasegawa's orders. Your sentence has has now been increased 10 years and 6 months to 350 years and 2 months.
Sengoku: Why you bureaucratic shithead!
Benten: Oh, let it go Sengoku. You'll never be able to talk him out of it.
Gogul: I agree with Benten. At least we saved this skyscraper and that Hasegawa didn't pop out heads of with these fuckin' collars so don't bother gettin' so steamed up over another 10 years.
Sengoku: Go ...

A true masterpiece!
9 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

Yoshiaki Kawajiri once again takes the helm and delivers one of the best Anime series of it's kind.

Kawajiri is no stranger to anime, having directed the fantastic Ninja Scroll and Vampire Hunter D he knows how to make them good.

As with the other films it's quality all round. Meticulous detail has gone into the artwork and animation to create a truly atmospheric cyber futuristic setting which looks amazing.

As with many others I saw this in the UK on it's first broadcast on Channel 4 and having been somewhat of a stranger to anime back then, having only seen parts of Akira, needless to say I was completely blow away by it. Something just struck a chord from the fantastic artwork, the rich and colourful characters to the incredible soundtrack by Rory McFarlane (One of the first things to grab me!)

I cannot stress enough the importance of this now discontinued UK edition of the series. The voice acting is exceptionally well done (rare for an anime!) and the music is a stunning 80's prog/synth metal charger in the vein of Vince Dicolas Transformers (1986)

In Martial Arts films I prefer subtitles, but in anime, due to the vast amount of visual work on screen I prefer dubbing as looking away to read subs takes some of the enjoyment away.

It is such a shame they only ever made 3 episodes. For ages (Pre internet) I searched for more episodes only to discover there were none, but in a way this only adds to the vintage that is Cyber city!

Thrilling, epic, action packed and brilliant!

Get it!
