which is the point and comedy of this series. But to fully
understand and appreciate the series, you would have to have seen or
read the Original Series. What was once a grim, violent, bloody and
realistic story has been turned into a SD comical parody anime and
the change does not make sense or work.
also did not like the over-simplistic 1.78 X 1 digital high
definition animation or surprisingly flat, though lossless DTS-HD MA
(Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo. Hope Sentai issues the original show on
Blu-ray somehow. Extras include clean opening and closing animation
