Jayanti's history lesson will now commence and how Machine Robo: Butchigiri Battle Hackers came to be that anime of the year. Please enjoy the story. This was back in 1987 before there were any real technology. Thinking about the past, it was treacherous. In a small part in Asia, I was about to leave the country. There was no passport control, it was a isolated town where merchants did trade. The main port was overcrowded, everyone was desperate trying to get out. The only access in and out of the town were the boats the town provided. Outsiders would drive the boats out the town
and Incomers would take those boats and drive back into the city. Sometimes it would take days for a boat to come back where you just stand until it comes. I could hear the daily market bustling as everyone waited in line to get out. Unfortunately, the Port was shaped in a "E" (E shape) with 3 docks. I was at the front of the line, at the 1st dock. When the boats started to come, they parked at the 2nd dock and 3rd dock, totally letting those people cut in line. This was how flawed the system was. When the last boat of the day came, I yelled at the guy to park at the 1st dock. And I finally got a boat for me to get out. But then that was just the easy part. I had to climb a rope ladder down from the port onto the boat that was shaking from the choppy waves. Before I was about to drive out, the guy behind me in line tossed me something, it was the Machine Robo anime DVD. He said it was a gift for me. Naturally I thanked him, and that's how I went home to watch this anime. The anime is very good. The mechas got cool style, some with sunglasses. And I promise you will see the mecha in the front cover. It was very good mecha, I think Ganbaruger was better, but Machine Robo be brawling. One of the mecha got that long thick spinning drill on his arm as a weapon and he smashes through walls. I showed this to my European friend and he cried after watching the ending. He was touched and left in tears, all emotional that it ended. I had to satisfy him, by showing him Ganbaruger. Don't worry everyone who's like my European friend. You will receive the same enjoyment from this anime like from the passage I've written.
