Synopsis

Colin MacLeod, the immortal Scottish Highlander, travels with the wise-cracking ghost Amergan in search of the immortal despot Marcus Octavius, who killed Colin's lover on the Celtic plains centuries earlier. The once great city of New York is now submerged under water, with only one dominant fortress towering over the sea, the fortress of Marcus Octavius. MacLeod is torn between saving the survivors of New York and hunting down his nemesis.

I'll be honest and say I never thought the Highlander series had its own anime movie and I recently got into the series when I turn 20 since I watch the first movie and bit of the TV series; both cartoon and live action, still planning to watch the rest, even the sequels.
I found the movie in my local 'nerd store', I didn't think it was real until I did some research and I decide to give it a watch, and I really enjoy the movie so much.

Highlander is a cult classic film from 1986. It's so ingrained into pop culture that even if you've never seen it you know the basic premise and the classic line "there can be only one."
