It's OK if you loved "Astro Boy".,
This review is from: Virus Buster Serge: Vol 2 (DVD)
But that was the 1960s not 1997. "Asro Boy" has merit because it was one of the first animes brought to the US from Japan by a US company. It's a real classic! I'm writting this because of a mistake in my review for volume 3.
The art is good. The character design is good. The girls remind me of the girl designs in "Betterman" only more provocative. The story line is OK. A bit mundane and unrealistic. I judge it against the "Gundum" sagas and "Escaflowne". Classic mecha animes.
The dubbing stinks. It's laughable. There was no effort to sync the voices to the mouth movements of the characters for the most part. To me it's distracting and ruins the anime. Of course I may be spoiled by proper ADR engineering and scripting like Lex Lang's fine efforts.
Now for my mistake. I recomended "Tokyo Warriors" to those who like this anime. It should have been "10 Tokyo Warriors".
