Editorial Reviews

New villains, new monsters, and new allies appear in the second half of this 1989 OAV. As the Japanese branch of the Chronos corporation has been decimated, the powerful Dr. Balcus takes over. Agito infiltrates Chronos--while plotting to destroy the organization. Sho, Tetsuro, and Mizuki are rescued by Masaki, a freelance writer who is really a "Zoalord." No one explains just what a Zoalord is, but the powerful Masaki fills in the back story: humans are actually the product of biological weapons experiments by the alien Creators. The series ends on an inconclusive cliffhanger that implies a sequel, although none was ever made. The filmmakers were clearly running short of money, as the later episodes involve lots of still artwork and recycled animation. The last episode is presented only in English. (Rated 13 and older but more appropriate for 15 and older: violence, grotesque imagery, profanity, nudity) --Charles Solomon

The video quality is great and it seems that some of the effects are animated at a different FPS or my mind playing tricks on me, some seem a bit modified to look like a greater quality of animating them. The soud is great also, great quality Dolby 5.1/2.0 English track aswell as a 2.0 Japanese track, too bad we get only 2.0 for that one but at least my ears seem to tell me that there isn't a whole lot of difference in quality. There's of course as you'd probably know, for those who do their homework, some neat bonuses such as Zoanoid data files(although already included on the VHS..but not on 2nd act VHS from Manga), Original unmodified(yay for none of that U.S. Rendition's credit text and subtitles) Japanese Intros/Outros, and some others that will make you guys happy, I don't want to spoil the excitement that much so I won't state all of them. Thank you Manga Entertainment! And thank you guys at the U.K. for having it remixed and for getting the man called "Mad Dog Winston" to create the awesome soundtrack for the Manga Edition of this awesome 12 part anime series.

If you have Volume 1 already, you are no doubt well aware of the changes Manga Video made to the series (music, credits, english voices) but you haven't seen anything yet!
I must admit I have only seen the entire series on its original L.A.Hero and U.S.Renditions VHS releases, and when the Manga Video "Datas" came out, I could only find episodes 4 and 6, so I knew not of what Manga Video had decided to do with episode 12.
Brace yourselves, you may find what you are about to hear hard to believe, but I swear it to be true. Episode 12 was EDITED on the VHS "Data" and so it remains EDITED on this DVD presentation. Let me explain what I mean by EDITED: we all know that Manga changed the opening and closing credits and some of the english voices. All in all, fairly excusable considering the original credits are viewable in the special features menu. But, what is unacceptable and, on inspection, utterly pointless, was their cutting (or rather, trimming) of Mizuki's nude sequence in episode 12. Now, instead of being full-frontal fan service, it is...well, exactly what it was before, only shorter (I mean 'frames' shorter). What lawsuit was filed against Manga that warranted these pointless cuts (You can still tell she gets her clothes ripped off by ZX-Tole and Sho still has to give her his shirt afterwards, so what difference does it make?)? Fear not, though, basement-dwelling-Hentai-collecting-Lara-Croft-oggling miscreants; The full, uncut version of episode 12 is available in the special features menu. Of course, this only begs the question: Why did Manga not just put the uncut version on the disc and let that 'edited' version find a nice new home in the dumpster outside the studio? Frankly, I cannot get past my original question of, "Why was episode 12 edited in the first place?
