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 The movie that made me a anime fan. August 15, 1999
By A Customer
I first saw this movie in 1985. I just fell in love with anime after that. It's full of action, intrigue, and drama. Awesome battle scenes with transforming mechs. The story line is incredibly complex. If you like anime you should definately get this classic.

2.0 out of 5 stars Better off with old dub, out with the new! June 6, 2004
I was so looking forward to this. The whole series, one dubbing job, done by one of the better anime houses, remastered video, extras, etc., yadda-yadda-yadda. I am so glad my local video store bought a copy first so I could preview it.
In a word, it sucks. Not the movie, mind you - Megazone 23 Part 1 is one of the all time great anime OAVs for a multitude of reasons and you can still get the excellent Streamline dub from a variety of sources. I'm talking about ADV's new dubbing job. It sucks. It stinks. It reeks. It takes bad dubs of classic anime to an all-new low. It sounds like a bad fandub recorded inside a junior high school bathroom back at an 80s retro convention. Yeah, I know all that gnarly tubular "authentic 80s" dialogue was supposed to add to the atmosphere of the show, but it just doesn't work, guys! You had too much fun doing the dub to do a good job, and it shows. And for all that supposedly careful auditioning, some of the voice actors you chose sound just plain awful! I'd rather watch it in the original Japanese without subtitles than put up with any more of Yui's screetching blather in the new dub (and yes, I've seen the original in the original Japanese, so shut up otaku)! And the "new" voice of B.D.?! Don't get me started! ADV were rushed and they admitted as such in the commentary - and it shows, folks. It shows. To borrow a popular 80s catchphrase, it makes me wanna hurl.
Okay, enough of that. There are actually three good things - small but notable - I have to say about the Megazone 23 Part 1 re-release. One, ADV did a helluva job of cleaning up the video. Only the two Hong Kong DVD import releases come close to the visual quality of this video.

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!

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.
