Sixteen years after its destruction by a meteor, Graviton City has been rebuilt into a futuristic metropolis. However, this is of little concern to superpowered high school student Eiko Magami, who only cares about her best friend Shiiko Kotobuki and arriving at school on time. Unfortunately, the incredibly intelligent Biko Daitokuji intends to befriend Shiiko, taking Eiko's place as the Shiiko's best friend using any means she can.

Biko decides that, to accomplish this, she must defeat Eiko in combat. In order to overcome her super strength and speed, Biko creates a mecha and challenges Eiko in front of their school gate. As the two commence their battle, an extremely large spaceship hovers over Earth, searching for something left behind.

“Project A-Ko” is the first movie in the franchise of the same name, and it is known for being one of the first anime movies available for sale in the US, and I believe one of the first ones aired on American television. Thus, there’s a lot of nostalgia associated with it, and it has a bit of a cult following.

The story follows A-Ko, a girl with superhuman strength; her best friend, the whiny and clingy C-Ko; and B-Ko, the rich, mad scientist-like girl trying to kill A-Ko and take C-Ko for herself. Concurrent to the fights between A-Ko and B-Ko, which seem to ...

It's just not very funny. The main reason to seek out and enjoy this film is for the fact that it revels in the self-referential nature of anime. The more of an otaku you are, particularly of things released by before this came out, the more you will ostensibly get out of it. Although, certainly, you can notice things that were influenced by this in turn. I liked the Gurren Lagann drill mech.

I think the reason this has a high reputation is because of the sci-fi action direction it takes in the second half. Some of that material, such as A-ko hopping on the fighter ...
