There's not much to say about this OVA. It's an anime that tries to recreate a 70s-80s american action movie (a bad one), and for the most part it does a pretty good job.

Story: Well, there's just enough story to justify the action scenes. Basically a boy and a girl discover some UFO fragment and they're chased by government agents who try to recover it.

Characters: There's no character development. After watching it I can't even remember the names of the main characters. There's not a single moment where you might actually feel something for them.

Art: For the most part it's okay (keep in mind read more

Not too many anime dive into cultures beyond that of Japan's, especially in the particular setting of California.

The very first thing you are going to notice is the distinctive art style. Either you are going to like it, or hate it. Just so happens, I like it. Very heavy on the line work, stark shadows, flat colors, which are all things that are rarely seen in anime.

Too bad, however, that the animation can't match up. While the art is interesting to look at, the animation is very stilted and janky, poorly storyboarded, and that just lessens the experience.

Getting away from the art, and you are left with the story. read more
