In 2100, the newly built Bayside City serves as Japan's premier international port. The Angel Arms Company is established by a former policewoman named Takako, to help wage war on terrorism with armed security suits. When the mayor is assassinated, the women of Angel Arms end up protecting the evil crime-lord Hassan, in hopes that his information will help bring down a global terror ring. Takako's back is to the wall as a band of criminals plot to kill Hassan, and the organization's leader is revealed to be the former lover of Angel Arms' own Alisa.

This movie taught me the value of how a truly good story, outshines the rest.
Gundress was basically a production disaster during its conception phase, To the point that the movie looks really really really rough. Almost like an unfinished movie but the story is what kept me watching.

Definitely watch with an open mind regarding animation errors, It has superb voice acting and even good choreography in action scenes.
One of the better Old movies I've watched.

As you went on to hold your little fort for 30 years, Mushi Productions were thriving thanks to the business acumen of Osamu Tezuka, you saw Madhouse's birth in 1972 initiated on the impulse Osamu ...
