Reviewing anime I've only seen raw is an interesting task, but here I go doing so again. MAPS: Densetsu no Samayoeru Seijintachi is a 1987 OVA that's the first adaptation of the manga Maps (another 4 episode series would be released in 1994), and is a rather goofy space adventure that follows a hyperactive teenage boy and his girlfriend as they're beamed aboard an interesting looking spaceship by a blue haired alien, as the boy holds the key to the location of a much coveted map.

The vast majority of the characters are super over the top in their actions, with loud voice acting to read more
