A veritable feast for the senses.
10 August 2018 | by david_ghuntSee all my reviews

The plot is not the focus here. You should watch this if you enjoy 80's anime and 80's music. The action scenes and the animations are top-notch for the time. The plot could possibly be interesting on some level if you were to pay enough attention to it, but again, the plot is not the point, in my opinion.
