Editorial Reviews

Finally the original cyberpunk classic is available in one comprehensive collection. One of the first productions to enlist famous American actors such as Kiefer Sutherland (24), award-winning Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), and Juliette Lewis (Natural Born Killers), and created by a team of anime masterminds - including writers Akinori Endo (Battle Angel) and Chiaki Konaka (Serial Experiments: Lain, Hellsing) - Armitage III: The Complete Saga is a must-have for anime and sci-fi devotees. Armitage is a brash cybernetic cop who sports a racy wardrobe and an attitude to match. Patrolling an unruly metropolis on Mars, she's got a grudge against a society where androids are at the mercy of unsympathetic humans. In the original OVAs - also coalesced as the feature film Poly Matrix - Armitage risks everything to hunt down a vicious android killer and solve the secret to her existence. The sequel, Dual Matrix, finds Armitage in an over-charged battle to save her loved ones from an obsessive doctor and his deadly Armitage replicas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great box set for a classic anime December 23, 2012
I grew up with the original Armitage OVAs, and I was in the market to repurchase them anyway, but when I saw this box set, I had to pounce. It's a silly thing to care about, maybe, but the packaging on this baby is nice stuff. Got to love the whole "pulp sci-fi magazine" styling - really brought me back to the good ol' 90s when I was first experiencing this show, which is pretty much what you want a repackage of a classic to do. And it's a box you'd be proud to stash on your shelf, which, much as I like the original OVAs' rather garish packaging, is not something that can be said of them.

Despite the outward presentation, however, do note that this is actually a pretty bare-bones release. You're getting what it says - the complete collection, four OVAs, two movies - and not much else. The menus are as basic as it gets, and the extras are minimal: a "making of" featurette for Dual-Matrix, arguably the least interesting of the series, and a handful of tracks from the OST (three, to be exact) in 5.1 sound. And that's it. Which is fine - the important stuff's all present and correct. Just don't go expecting anything fancy.

Oh, and if you were misled by the box into thinking there's an actual article in there - as far as I can tell, there isn't. It's just part of the fake sci-fi mag styling. Which is kind of a shame, because this series could have really done with some interesting deconstructy liner notes a la Noir.

But in the end, this is a well-priced collection of a 90s cyberpunk classic, and well worth picking up.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Treat in ONE Small Package! July 31, 2013
By Craig R
Verified Purchase
This is a bit different than earlier releases of the Armitage as it includes BOTH the ORIGINAL four episode Japanese release, the Poly-Matrix subbed English movie made from the original Japanese series but has a completely different ending to the Japanese original, and Dual-Matrix where Armitage and Ross are living under assumed names with a daughter! Having all three parts to the Armitage Saga in one small disc case makes it perfect for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for fans but maybe not so for non fans July 10, 2014

hello
a long time ago win cartoon network showed some anime is the first time I saw Armitage but t was only today that I was actually able t own this series. Let m say the animation and the movies in general have stood the test of time. This dvd includes the original ova, the movies poly matrix and the sequel dual matrix. All have stood up great and look incredible. The set also includes a featurette called assembling Armitage which talks about getting together the movie dual matrix and making it. it also has some of the songs from the movie as well as some trailer but the main draw are the main features.

Let me ay I like the movie more than the OVA. I know poly matrix are just the OVA made into a movie but I like the movie better in my opinion. still both movies re great stories as well as the ova. IF you are an anime fan this should be a part of your collection if this is your first time you might want to start somewhere else and work up to this

5.0 out of 5 stars this collection is perfect. You get everything July 9, 2014
By Khalid
This review is both for the series and this collection. First off, this collection is perfect. You get everything, enough said.

Now about the series. Did you ever losten to the sound of your dial-up and wonder what is on the other side of it? Did you ever wish that someone you spoke to on a chatroom was actually a sentient program? Have you wondered when an android becomes indistinguishable from a human? Watch this series and you will get even more questions.
