Five stars for the Five Star Stories!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Five Star Stories (DVD)
This is one of the great unsung anime epics of the late eighties. Released at about the same time as Katsuhiro Otomo's Akira, this 90 minute film got eclipsed by the tremendous hoopla surrounding the Otomo flick, and never really took off. It was a staple of the fan-subbing crowd for many years afterward, and I, for one, am glad to see it on DVD at last. The characters are interesting and compelling, from Ladios Sopp to Lachsis to Voardis and Duke Ballanche, and the story, while simple in its plot, moves along at a good pace. AD Visions did well to bring this gem to DVD. I highly recommend this work.
