You want English? I hope you do!

For reasons unknown to me, this release is stripped of it's original Japanese language track. We instead get English, French, Portuguese, and Spanish. I am Jack's total lack of amusement.

Perhaps someday a proper release will be made where the original Japanese is at least included, but until then this will be on my list of boycotted releases.

Good, but not the legend.

I give this anime 4 stars for visuals, but I'd give it 3 for overall content including making Deunan a more buxom figure. There is too much of the muchness with her platinum blonde hair and her more revealing "combat" attire as well. The story is a bit of a mixed bag. Big baddie. Big gun. Big risk. Though there is a couple of interesting story decisions, things happen pretty straight forward. The action scenes are smooth and good eye candy, but that's about all there is. I'm not expecting Shakespeare here, but any real backstory about the environment or characters isn't plumbed as well as my curiosity gives license. It definitely plays like part 1 of a 2? part story and whether or not we ever see more of the story in this format is unknown.
