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 ...

90s Gold!
15 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

A piece of antiquity in my eyes, brutal, blunt and abrasive, generally, a classic piece of 'lads cinema' - just as fun today as when I was twelve.

The glory of Manga's cyberpunk collection, Cyber City is three episodes surrounding the collar-wearing criminal police force of a future 'neo-tokyo'.

Full of classical clichés; the quick snapping hard man sporting a mullet and a snazzy red trench coat. The enormous, goggle garbed somehow Japanese- Italian- American computer hacker and oddly, a long haired transsexual - Bentin, with his flashy pedicure and exceptionally effective cheese knife.

But, the wonder of Cyber City is its' shameless tough man aesthetics, (the sort of characters that say 'yeah I gotta a mullet/Mohawk or a nice pretty dress! What of it!) Simply striving off the spine-tingling, dramatic action that every fella is ashamed to love, knows he does but just doesn't know why. Cyber City is a show for the boys whatever age so long as the ladies aren't home, its just one of these boys' animations that the girls just cannot understand nor will they ever care to.

So for a few tins, a blast from animation past, f'in, blinding, beating, killing and great cheesy action, it's a show and a half!
