Appleseed DVD (Hyb) - Feature Only

This Kicks Butt!!!
The storyline follows the originial ova fairly closely but does differ a lot in how the characters are portrayed. The 3d cg is simpley astounding, the action scenes (and there are a lot of them) are simply jaw dropping. Olympus looks a lot different from the original. This movie clocks in at approximatly 1 3/4 hours and seems like only 30 minutes. Go see it and compare the 2 versions.

REPRODUCTION ORGANS GOODS!
SIMPLY AWESOME!! THERE WAS A LOT OF ACTION IN THIS MOVIE VERSION OF "APPLESEED". THE GRAPHICS WERE VERY GOOD, VERY DETAIL. THE STORY LINE WAS COMPLEATE AS OPPOSE TO THE GRAPHIC NOVEL VERSION. SHIROW-SAN DID AN UPGRADE TO THIS STORY AND ADDED LOTS OF ACTION. THERE WERE SOME SURPRISES IN THIS VERSION THAN IN THE OTHER VERSION THAT MADE THIS MOVIE MUCH MORE INTERESTING TO WATCH OVER AND OVER AGAIN. AGAIN, THANKS TO SHIROW MASAMUNE'S UPGRADED VERSION OF THIS MOVIE. THANK YOU.

Close! But good anyway!
Having been a Masamune Shirow fan for years, I simply HAD to get this new version of Shirow's graphic novel-turned OVA-turned remake of Appleseed. Though the original and this newer version have little in common other then characters, I must admit I prefer the newer version. The art is absolutely mistifying and the voice acting, even the dubbing, is superb. I must have for all anime fans, be they otaku or casual watchers!
