Overall Landlock is a ...

This is a mid 90's anime OVA, so the animation/art was pretty good for the time of release. It really looked fantastic considering when it came out. The sound however was kind of mediocre at best. It was poorly done, but the voice acting itself wasn't horrible. There were times when ...
