Another Classic from the creator of Mobile Suit Gundam

by -

Space Runaway Ideon is another classic from the creator of Mobile Suit Gundam Yoshiyuki Tomino. All 39 episodes and 2 movies are in breathtaking Blu Ray HD. The features are simple video is in 1080p HD, the audio is in Japanses DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 Stero, with English Subtiles. I had no trouble watching this on my Blu Ray player. The discs played perfectly with no skips. The audio was crisp and clear. Maiden Japan did a wonderful job with this Blu Ray release. The only downside is that this show was cancelled after 39 of the planned 43 episodes were aired. Thankfully it got the movie treatment to properly end the story, and boy what a ending it was! This series is now my favorite non Gundam Mecha Anime. If you are a Mecha or a Tomino fan then Space Runaway Ideon is perfect for you watch again and again.

A fantastic, must see series!

This is one of my favorite giant robot animes. The story is original and unique. The music is great. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Tomino in the early 80s when Dunbine was coming out and I got to talk to him about Ideon. The 80s is considered a golden age for anime and I was lucky to have seen most of them when they were coming out. This one is special to me.
