Editorial Reviews

Enslaved by an army of rebellious super-robots originally designed to help civilization avert a complete ecological cataclysm, mankind's only hope is CASSHAN, a legendary hero who wages a solitary war to defeat these NEOROIDS and restore the Earth to its rightful order. Ironically, Casshan's father is the same scientist who engineered the race of super androids now threatening to destroy all of mankind. On a crusade to clear the name of his father, Casshan must sacrifice his own humanity in order to attain the powers he needs to defeat mankind's powerful enemies. But Casshan's power does not come without a price. Haunted by the memories of his murdered mother and forced to deal with a super robot that has absorbed, and now manipulates, the consciousness of his father, Casshan must put aside his own emotions and fight to preserve the survival of the human race. An extraordinary tale of science fantasy and social relevance, CASSHAN is a story of man's best laid plans paving the way to potential destruction. Animation filled with bold action, pure adventure and remarkable depth.

Music is good as well.

Together Cashaun and his dog (whom makes Rush look mega-weak) must stop the eco-crazed robot and his henchbots from driving the human race into extinction.

I felt a little ripped off, when I got volume 1 and 2 together as an offer from Amazon.Com. Movie wise, volume 2 is actually exactly the same as volume 1, with volume 2 having the option for japanese dialog and Eng subtitle. Amazon could have at least indicated that in the "description".

This is another classic animation from my childhood. I've read some review complaining the weak figure of Casshan. A true and good martial artist has nothing to do with being Hugh and muscular. Casshan depicted the true beauty of martial arts and humility to sacrifice his human life to become the man and android hybrid to defeat BK1! Graphic may not be perfect but this is one of the classic that fans of animation shouldn't be missing.

I first saw this movie in the sci-fi channel a few years back, and recently borrowed it from a friend, after watching it again I love it even more than before, good animation, although a step below princess mononoke or VHD, still it holds it's own, great story line, Casshan fights to stop an evil android who wants to destroy mankind in order to preserve nature and save the world(basically the bad guy is trying to do good but feels like he's misunderstood), overall, if you like action movies with robots and explosions then this anime is for you.
a timeless anime classic i'm sure anyone would like, GET IT NOW!!!

ADV mislabeled the DVD as vol. 2 on its packaging. Amazon just went by what it sees on the label. Its a pretty good DVD, it's technically the special edition of Casshan with a japanese dub included as one of the special features. I like the show myself but people who don't like older anime probably wont like it.

Its got to be one of the best anime's I've ever seen. I saw Cashaun: Robot Hunter on Sci-Fi channel's "Saturday Anime" block. Basically its a movie about a scientist who made a robot who's prime directive was to clean up earth is to get rid of all humans, thus getting rid of pollution and war. The scientist also made two other cyborgs. One being Cashaun and the other being a dog. Together Cashaun and his dog (whom makes Rush look mega-weak) must stop the eco-crazed robot and his henchbots from driving the human race into extinction.

Format: DVD
Like Gatchaman and the upcoming Karas (which is an anime meant to reignite the anime superhero), Casshan is a superhero anime, which is a rare thing in the anime and manga world. It follows a man with supernatural abilities, and in this case it happens to be a half-man/half-robot who has acrobatic abilities and the capability of plowing through metal with little effort. And, as an added note, Casshan was created by the very same studio that created Gatchaman and Karas, so at least this was done by the ones who know how to do it best.

The story follows Casshan as he journeys across a post-apocalyptic Earth populated by robots called Neoroids. These robots are slowly destroying the human race and, except for a few pockets of resistance, they are succeeding. But the human race have found a light in the darkness in Casshan, and he battles for the human race against the Neoroids tyrant leader, BK1, also known as the Black King. He's not alone in his efforts, for following him is a childhood friend who happens to have the blueprints for a weapon that could change the war, as well as Casshan's cybernetic dog.

Casshan is no masterpiece, but it has a special place for me since it was one of the first anime I was able to see, back when the Sci-Fi Channel had an anime block. It has some solid action, great animation considering the time, and a decent dubbed track, even if it is a bit melodramatic at times. In a lot of ways, Casshan is reminiscent to Vampire Hunter D, so if you enjoyed that classical work of anime, then you'll probably enjoy Casshan as well.

(NOTE: This is not volume 2. Casshan is only a four episode OVA, which is contained in its entirety on this DVD. Amazon.com has made a mistake in titling this DVD version.)

what's fascinating is that this movie is a revamp of the ealier casshan series back in japan 75. but the premise is very familiar to scifi movie buffs. imaging john o' connor from the terminator machine wars, but with superpowers. casshan is a great series with a bittersweet finale. the designs, fight scenes, intro themes and story pacing are compared to other tatsunoko shows/ovas like gatchaman and hurricane polymar. which means it's an instant hit. the main villian black king boss controls a robo naziesque goverment which enslaves and exterminates humans who are surviving in a post apocolyptic enviorment. and it's up to casshan and his pet cyber pooch to save humanity by destroying the IRON EVIL but at the price of his humanity. good storyline with of course pathos. If your a fan of the Magnus robot fighter comics or even a scifi enthusiast,
then casshan is well worth the purchase if not rental.

I first saw this movie about ten years ago on the sci-fi channel and it blew me away with its story line, let alone its animation. I own many anime movies (most current: Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust) and tv series type anime like star blazers (the entire quest for Iscandar series and soon to have the comet empire series), but this is one of my all time favorite full length motion picture anime movies. I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes anime with a lot of action and a good story line. It will be available on DVD very soon and I already have pre-ordered it as I have been waiting a long time for a DVD version to become available. Check it out for yourself, you wont be dissapointed!
