"I don't know anything about the game this video is based on. I bought the video because there was a buxom babe on the cover and it said "17+". (If this makes me a pig, so be it.) After a few minutes I learned the basis of the movie, namely, waitresses are fighting in a tournament. The winner gets money; the loser has to take off her clothes. My first thought on learning this was the intelligent and well-thought-out query: "Whut the--?!"As I watched more, I can't say the premise made a whole lot more sense, but the movie was decent. The animation was surprisingly good and the fights were cool, though nowhere near the level of Street Fighter II: TAM. The story was actually pretty good, too, better than SF2 or Fatal Fury: TMP. The movie also benefitted from who I consider a very cool villain. This was Damien, the long-limbed, misshapen psychopath whose drug-induced speed and strength make him more than a match for the fighters of the tournament. My only real complaint (and here comes my piggishness again) was that there was not as much nudity as I might have hoped. The main character, Yuka, is absolutely gorgeous but never takes it all off. Bummer.Still, this was a good title and I would recommend it to anyone who doesn't need anime to be as thoughtful as Akira to enjoy watching it."
Very Tight Anime Fighting Title

"I have no clue why someone could give this video less than 4 stars. It's one of the best action flicks I have ever seen. The dubbing was EXCELLENT and the animation was super smooth. The fight seens were incredible especially the special moves. They were bright and spectacular and the story was also cool. There is drama in this video but can be really funny at times. This video is well worth a look. Especially since its so cheap and its 90min! Can't beat that. Think about it...Scantily clad waitresses fighting, and the loser has to take it all off. I'd recommend it to 17+ since it does have mature situations. Great video! BUY IT!"
Variable Geo - An interesting take on the fast food industry

"Variable Geo is based on a fighting game, and for that reason alone I was unsure about how to aproach this video (anime based on fighting games don't have that great of a track record). The character designs in this video helped to enhance a story that sometimes pushed the bounderies of believability, providing the characters with an extreme amount of personality. The fights between characters were good, but be advised that there is a lot of skin shown (gratuitious fan service). This isn't an anime you should watch for a serious plot, but for those days when you want to watch something silly. Overall, a good video game translation, and worth looking into if lighthearted action is your genre of choice."
Movie Good, Dub Bad.

"The anime isn't that bad. The fights are fun, lots of special attacks used. There isn't as much nudity as I would like for a +17 story, and what there is, is pretty much censored.
My main problem with this tape, is that the dubbing, stinks. Even with the volume of my TV as hi as it would go, I could barely understand what they were saying over the sounds of the special effects.
My suggestion, get either the subbed version, or the DVD. That way, you'll at least be able to understand what they're saying."
