Trivia

When initially released on VHS, the English dub had an entirely new score composed by Rory McFarlane. This score was replaced with the original Japanese score when it was released on DVD. A soundtrack CD of the alternate score was released in the UK by Demon Records in 1995. See more »

Quotes

Gogul: It's your turn now, soldier boy. How do you fancy your chances? Your machine was pretty good, but a limp dick pen-pusher like you, not so good. Normally I'd be too tired to bother killing you, but see I owe you one for Sara's death.

Underrated Classic OVA
27 March 2008 | by screwtape83See all my reviews

I first saw this on Channel 4 (UK) when it was aired here in 1994/5 and I was blown away, one of the reasons was the amazing Rory Mcfarlane UK edition alternative rock and electronica score which fit it perfectly.

Unfrotunatly not nearly enough people, let alone anime fans themselves have even heard of this which is a shame. Im no die hard anime fan who watches all these new random animes but i do like a well produced one and the guy who created this created Ninja Scroll (which i also have)! Its a very well realized, animated, written OVA although its short with only three episodes, its very sweet. I highly recommend this for any anime and cyberpunk fan who wants to see where cyberpunk began and was at it best.
