Format: DVD
180 Minutes, all 6 episodes, Remastered 5.1 English with stereo English (not listed on cover) and Stereo Japanese. (note to Amazon.com: please update your information on this title)
This is a mecha series with a strong storyline and nice classic anime style. The mecha designs are limited in appeal but the characters and storyline more than make up for it.
I won't tell you the storyline except it revolves around war and spying at least in the first 4 episodes, episode 4 starts to reveal another underlying story line, but You will have to buy the DVD or read the VHS reviews to find out. After all why buy something is you already know how it all unfolds :-)

This is a real good series, if you like Crest of the Stars, Heavy Metal L-Gaim, or any Leiji Matsumoto based series you will enjoy this. The animation is top notch the action is great the story is great, the characters are interesting. I wish the original Orguss was out on R1 dvd so I could see more of this world known as Orguss. It really got me thinking of Heavy Metal L-Gaim while I was watching this, it just has a similar feeling to it. Get this DVD it is actually a bargain at this price as it contains the entire 6 episode OVA.

You wish! Seriously though, I went into this one with high hopes, and it left me feeling VERY disappointed. With the character designer of Macross and a universe that combines a girl with mystical powers, giant robots, and warring nations, you'd think it would be a recipe for a winner...

First, the good points: The character designs and animation are indeed quite good, and the main characters are likable enough (though not so likable that I remember their names). The soundtrack isn't half bad, and the voice-acting is passable.

Now the bad: The whole thing feel incredibly rushed, a lot of time is spent on characters who are repulsive (perverse, deranged, and just plain wacko), there is more robot action in the opening credits than in every episode except the first and the last, the plot revelations happen so fast at the end that they make the storyline borderline rediculous (I know this a sequel but COME ON!), there is little backhistory given on the characters that we DO like, the action scenes are more gruesome than awesome (all the people dying when a city gets nuked in particular left me ready to lose my lunch), and the plot, characters, and dialog just don't really draw you in.

If you want to see the mythical and the scientific combined (and the giant robot as well!), I reccomend checking out Escaflowne. If you love the character designs of Macross, you might want to consider Gunbuster. But I would only reccomend RENTING this one if you liked the first Orguss. No better than mediocre.
