Despite the outward presentation, however, do note that this is actually a pretty bare-bones release. You're getting what it says - the complete collection, four OVAs, two movies - and not much else. The menus are as basic as it gets, and the extras are minimal: a "making of" featurette for Dual-Matrix, arguably the least interesting of the series, and a handful of tracks from the OST (three, to be exact) in 5.1 sound. And that's it. Which is fine - the important stuff's all present and correct. Just don't go expecting anything fancy.
Oh, and if you were misled by the box into thinking there's an actual article in there - as far as I can tell, there isn't. It's just part of the fake sci-fi mag styling. Which is kind of a shame, because this series could have really done with some interesting deconstructy liner notes a la Noir.
But in the end, this is a well-priced collection of a 90s cyberpunk classic, and well worth picking up.
a long time ago win cartoon network showed some anime is the first time I saw Armitage but t was only today that I was actually able t own this series. Let m say the animation and the movies in general have stood the test of time. This dvd includes the original ova, the movies poly matrix and the sequel dual matrix. All have stood up great and look incredible. The set also includes a featurette called assembling Armitage which talks about getting together the movie dual matrix and making it. it also has some of the songs from the movie as well as some trailer but the main draw are the main features.
Let me ay I like the movie more than the OVA. I know poly matrix are just the OVA made into a movie but I like the movie better in my opinion. still both movies re great stories as well as the ova. IF you are an anime fan this should be a part of your collection if this is your first time you might want to start somewhere else and work up to this
Now about the series. Did you ever losten to the sound of your dial-up and wonder what is on the other side of it? Did you ever wish that someone you spoke to on a chatroom was actually a sentient program? Have you wondered when an android becomes indistinguishable from a human? Watch this series and you will get even more questions.
