against the evil forces out to destroy humanity. Joseph discovers
the origins of stone masks and the 'Pillar Men'. And must defeat
'Kars' who aspires to become a god. This was a blast from the past
manga turned anime. Thank goodness they kept the original Japanese
is all about buff and beefy macho men with supernatural and
impossible martial arts. In the spirit of Fist of the North Star
and other post apocalyptic war stories, it would of done Tetsou Hara
proud. The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is a little weak

Logic-type surrounds and would really kick in a lossless version.
There are sadly no extras.
