The very first original animated video produced by Tezuka Productions about an agent who was sent riding on Halley's comet to the Earth. He was actually, though, given the order to destroy the Earth. Captivated by planet's beauty, however, he is no longer able to destroy the planet. Seventy-six years later, another agent from Halley's comet is sent to the earth to liquidate this traitor, who is now disguised as a girl named Lamina in Vietnam. Tezuka Osamu oversaw only the original story.

I decided to write this review more for its historical value than anything else – Oh, it is my first MAL review, too, so be gentle.

Love Position, Legend of the Halley was the first OVA by Tezuka Productions, a company created by Osamu Tezuka. The title was released in December 1985.

This, like so many amines of the day, was undoubtedly made with the intention of selling to the US market. For example, the opening sequences are set in a familiar Nevada desert setting (for no apparent reason). But the American influences do not stop there. The arrival off an alien agent comes straight out of ...

TLDR; Love Position was built around a gimmick tie in to Halley's Comet and had mediocre production values, an extremely messy story, and flat characters.

Story: A hulking terminator-esque villain hunting a beautiful alien who has fallen in love with Earth was in the first place not particularly unique, but it was made even worse by being extremely muddled and hectic in its presentation. The focus jumps all over the place in both time and place between several story threads which all involve different characters (an overbearing father, Vietnam war flashbacks, the looming evil alien, and the main character's journey) all in only ~90 minutes. This ...

Let's be honest here - this is mostly just a thematic ripoff of The Terminator, as nigh-invincible massive hulking guy (who looks suspiciously like Ahhhhnold) is on a mission of destruction. It seems like nothing can so much as scratch this monstrosity.

Well, almost. There's another alien agent that was also sent to Earth, but is trying to save it. Only she's this soft, gentle, willowy, innocent girl. And yet, she is his nemesis.

The "hook" that makes this "catchy" is the convoluted and weird tie-in to Halley's Comet. For ...
