This was one of the very first anime titles I had a chance of seeing in the mid-90s when the Sci-fi Channel usually aired anime movies and OVAs. By the looks of it, Streamline combined the OVA episodes into a nearly two hour long movie for its video release and it lacks the original Japanese audio track, even with its DVD release. It's also apparently supposed to serve as a sequel of sorts to a 1960s TV anime series take to the 8-Man character yet with a more darker and edgier feel to it. But like Iria Zeiram the Animation and Green Legend Ran when read more

His memory is transferred to the body of the original 8 man and thus read more

8-Man After is the sequel to the original 8-Man series of the 60's.The character was also given a live action film I have never seen and a couple of manga series as well. There has also been a video game released of him for the old Neo Geo system. 8-Man has also been said to be the inspiration for Robo-Cop. The similarities seem to be rather obvious but I think it pales in comparison to the robotic police officer. The point people.... 8-Man is rather popular and has developed quite a following.

8-Man After is in no way a work of art and I could never read more
