some fantasy world filled with swords and sorcery but later it is
revealed it is Earth in the far future, in where super science has
changed the world and the main character is one of the few last
surviving humans. The first half of the series is fill with drama

all main characters work together to save their world.
1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfers are much
better than the OVA
set of this franchise we reviewed a little while ago, with much
better color and detail. The DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo
lossless mixes are presented in decent English and slightly better
Japanese versions, both offering some Pro Logic-like surrounds to
match the image quality, but sounding a little better than the OVA
set. Extras include Japanese shorts, clean opening and closing
animations and trailers.
