Movie Reviews

Interestin concept that should have been developed futher
Ronnie Clay | Winnsboro, Louisiana | 10/20/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Central Park Media released this on videotape around 1996 but it is actually a 1989 anime based on a novel. In Japan these novels are mostly text with a few illustrations and many anime shows are based on such novels. The concept here is "girls who pilot a giant robot that looks like a woman." The story is a comedy and seems aimed at a very young audience. Therefore, there is zero character development. Kazumi is the enthusiastic high school girl, Aya is overly serious prep-school girl and Mia is the reluctant leader/university student. Their job is to protect the Earth from attack by the Gedo Corporation. These aliens rely on monsters-of-the week for world conquest rather than conventional armies so the Ariel robot is the perfect counter."
