4.0 out of 5 stars Streamline finally subtitled September 13, 1999
By A Customer
Its cool that Streamline has finally produced something with subtitled and in its original japanese language, as well as the dubbed version. The plot seems rushed but is otherwise a great anime vid to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rare and classsic SCI-FI Thriller October 5, 2000
The Megazone 23 part is the first in a three part series. Our hero named "Shogo" stumbles into a secrect military project that forever changes his views on where he lives while at the same time he falls madly in love with the woman of his dreams. There is so much more in this stroy it is hard to write about it in a review. Believe me, if you like anime then you will love Megazone 23. If you never watched anime, then this is one of the best ones you could ever watch. There is Megazone 23 part two and a part three but these will hopefully become avaliable to us again. I hope you get to watch those as well becuase you can complete the expericance that the creators of the series meant for you to have. If you can only see the first one you will still be left with a mystery but you will still have an all time classic tale as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Potential February 18, 2006
The excellent story line in this anime could have led to a classic in the Sci-Fi Anime genre, however, the ending left me saying, "Huh?"

It's not a cliff hanger ending either, just a bit of a thud... reminiscent of the animated Lord of the Rings ending. Remember that one? :-)

I love the visuals, though most of the animation is unpolished by todays anime standards.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic Anime , hope you lower the price June 29, 2007
I had the opportunity of watching this anime about seven years ago in VHS, about one week ago , I saw it on DVD and wow !!! it was really a good experience to see it again. It is a shame that the story seems somewhat incomplete we never get the opportunity to see Megazone 23's enemies and there is no conclusion to the BD he evil or not?, what is he tryint to do? , there is a sex scene here, and also a love story inside the movie. I hope someday , a director tries to improve the story and the characters in an updated version of Megazone 23, it is truly a classic.

The animation is good overall , considering that it was 1986 when this anime was released.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must-Have Title August 18, 2001
Megazone 23 was one of the earliest OAV series produced, and was considered groundbreaking when it was released. I'm really happy that Streamline made part one available on DVD! Unfortunately, they haven't released the second or third parts yet. I asked one of the guys working at the Streamline booth at Anime Expo 2001 when they were going to do so, and he said that he didn't know when or even if they were. Hopefully he was wrong, and the rest will be released domestically!

5.0 out of 5 stars Megazone 23: Back With A Vengeance...!!! June 18, 2004
By stryper
Well, I just bought, and watched, my copy of this CLASSIC "Japanamation" (which, for those to young to remember the 80's, is what we use to call "Anime" back in the 80's) OVA (which stands for, Original Video Animation, which meant anything that was animated to go straight to video, and not for play on Japanese TV, as most anime was made for, and you thought that you weren't gonna learn anything, by reading this review... lol) MEGAZONE 23, and am QUITE relieved that the new English dub for this new release, isn't ANYWHERE as BAD, as the past reviewers have said that it was.
Sure, most fans of this title, have grown up with the older Streamline Pictures, English dub, which is a nice dub, except for the fact that the three main girls in the story, all sound like sophisticated ladies, and NOT the young adults that they are actually suppose to be, where as in this new version, the dubbing team has opted for voices that closer mirror the attitudes of the young ladies, which is also nice (my suggestion is that you try and acquire BOTH versions of this anime, so that you can decide for yourself as to which dub you prefer).
Another plus, is the audio commentary (which you should definitely listen to AFTER watching the show if you are new to this title, as there be spoilers afoot, me lads :) which, although, tends to spend more then half of it's time, with the three speakers reminiscing about their old Laser Disc anime collections, does get into some pretty funny good natured kidding about the show itself (i.e. how room items seem to change from scene to scene) and some interesting anecdotal tidbits about the show as well.
The story is shear 80?s, sci-fi-mecha-transformation-actioner, and if you like Macross (or Robotech, as it is widely known here) then you?

4.0 out of 5 stars cool retro anime! July 31, 2007
cool animation,awesome soundtrack and familiar all makes up for an awesome retro/futuristic robot anime! Reminds me of Robotech in a way ,some of the dubs sound overexagerated at times but it's not too bad.I'd still like to watch the original vhs verson,I am a fan of the older dubs myself.A few too many nudy scenes for my taste but it follows the story so it's okay.The robot bike is pretty tight!
