About Midnight Eye Goku DVD

Midnight Eye Goku the complete OVA series contains two episodes.

Goku lives by a simple rule: never get involved with women. But as a private detective in a futuristic Tokyo City, that's easier said than done. Directed by Yoshiaki Kawajiri (Wicked City, Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust) and written by Buichi Terasawa (Space Adventure Cobra), this classic anime features a pair of stories that delve into a sleek and sexy world, filled with deadly cyborgs and alluring demons.

Goku's cases take him into the heart of danger, whether it's facing down a powerful and wealthy man who develops mass-murdering weapons, or a crazed experiment wielding ultimate power gone wrong. His one ace in the hole is his cybernetic left eye, which allows him to control any computer system in the world and gain information instantly. It's his one edge over the bad guys--but even with it, Goku can never see into the hearts of the women who enter his life as quickly as they leave it.

Fascinating Hero, Lots of Action

I've been wanting a proper bilingual copy of this anime since I first saw it in Japanese around 1990. A marvelous modernization of the Goku story, that leaves you wanting to know more about Goku and his mysterious benefactor who has provided him with his technological "magic". Plenty of fan service for those who want it(As you would expect from Buichi Terasawa but, in some ways I wish that aspect had been more tame, because I think the character and situations would be very appealing to audiences that might find the fan service objectionable. Early Madhouse quality.
