About Goshogun The Time Etranger DVD
In Goshogun the Time Etranger, forty years after the events of the TV series, Remy Shimada, ex-pilot of the GoShogun, suffers a terrible accident while on her way to a meeting with her former robot-piloting comrades. While they rush to the hospital, Remy floats between life and death. She sees visions of her life when she was young, and stranger still, experiences a hallucination of being with her friends, all of them young again, in a mysterious city filled with hostile fanatics.
Far from being the reunion Remy hoped for, a ghastly letter arrives for each member of the team that predicts their gruesome deaths. Slated to die in two days, both in reality and in her dream, Remy struggles to find a way out of the City of Fate, relying on the memories of her friends to see her through, even as they surround her death bed in the waking world.

Ratings & Reviews
A really cool surprise
by Vince -
Never saw GoShogun; I picked this up because the trailer looked cool. Some headtrippy 80's combat anime - Macross, Spriggan & Paranoia Agent mixed, maybe? It being put out by Discotek, known for quality, sealed the deal. Time ètranger is a well-paced action movie that tells 3 intertwined stories where GoShogun's Remy Shimada must defy her fate. The 3 come together at the end in a satisfying, open-ended, way.
How this plays out feels like an 80's version of 1 of those super memorable episodes of Cowboy Bebop where they stray from the formula, go someplace new & get really bold? Like "Pierrot Le Fou"? This feels as if Robotech decided to do that, and it paid off brilliantly. Its 80's action anime that's executing some ambitious ideas - both story & visually - really well. It looks fantastic, has great music with some awesome 80's Japanese City Pop, sports a recap of GoShogun - its just terrific. This is an easy recommendation; take a chance on time ètranger and you won't regret it!
