Movie Reviews

The Chebb | Japan | 10/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is basically the untold story (at least in the U.S.) of the big blue robot and the boy detective in postwar Japan. If you liked the Giant Robo animated OVAs, you will enjoy this faster paced, beautifully animated retro series - with the classic Japanese theme song intact , this is a series not to be missed!! WOW!!!
Giant Robo meets Grave of the Fireflies
Angelcake | 11/14/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The people who created the stunning 'Giant Robo' series have returned with yet another allegorical super robot masterpiece. This particular series is based on the debut manga of Mitsuteru Yokoyama (who also created Giant Robo, Babel II, and Red Shadow), that brought him national acclaim and created the giant robot genre in one fell swoop . It is unique, in that combines the excitement of giant robots with a post-war story not at all different from Grave of the Fireflies. It beautifully portrays the feelings of a nation still demoralized and battered 10 years after there defeat in WW2.

I heartily recommend this work, and hopefully, if this is successful enough, perhaps someone will begin to bring Yokoyama-san's manga to the U.S.!
