Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - R.J. Wafer
This 1987 directorial effort by Masamune Shirow (the mind behind Ghost in the Shell and Appleseed) has all the trappings of a great anime thriller: beautiful artwork, explosive action, a story reminiscent of The Terminator, and enough tense nail-biting climaxes to make the short 48-minute running time seem just right. Set in the future, the story follows beautiful photojournalist Sybel as she gets caught up in a military action to recapture a valuable and dangerous assassin android, the M66. The twist: A kindly Dr. Matthew created the androids during a time of peace in order to locate his granddaughter, Ferris. But upon the robots' delivery to the government, they were accidentally programmed to seek and destroy the young girl. A helicopter crash unleashes the M66s on their quest, and the onus falls on Sybel to save Ferris. A fantastic and exciting sci-fi/fantasy anime that is a worthy addition to any fan's collection.
