Movie Reviews

Why release this DVD in this condition?
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I don't know why such a great company would release such a terrible product! This DVD is missing the first episode of the original three volume mini-series. The first episode is depicted as a mere prologue to the remaining two episodes. The original Japanese language track is non-existant. As a good fan of the series, I was highly disappointed. Dangaioh fans stay away!"
Oh no they DID not!

"what was the point of releasing this piece of... well you know what i mean. why bother if you aren't going to show the first episode?! then there wouldn't be any need for a prologue that was just way to long and boring to begin with. i thought i would fall asleep before the damn thing even started. i am seriously disappointed, since i watched it a very long time ago and have been waiting forever for them to finally re-release this title. that they would do so little justice to it is just pitiful.
not to mention the fact that you can't even watch it in japanese with english subtitles. although it was fun to watch it with the english dub... i don't think i can remember the last time i heard so much swearing."
This has nothing to do with the Transformers movie/DVD's..

"I must admit that I sometimes enjoy watching old-school anime with a sort of a grotesque fascination; I am amused by the cheesy plots, the inane dialogue, and 80's-style animation quality. I actually owned this three-part OAV set on an import laserdisc(!). I always thought that the first episode was probably the highest in quality of the three as far as animation is concerned. When the Dangaioh does its transformation, it is quite smooth and fluid. But the second and third installments are pretty much low-end anime even for the 80's. I would've been much happier if this DVD release had only the first episode rather than the second and third; it would make more logical sense anyway! The fact that this putrid company released this DVD WITHOUT the first episode is not only insulting but aggravating.
Hopefully, it'll at least fetch me a buck or two on eBay.
Anchor Bay, you suck!"
