Synopsis

Airing on TV Asahi in 1981, with a running time of 111 minutes, Frankenstein is a reasonably standard retelling of the classic book by Mary Shelley. In a foreboding castle scientist Dr. Victor Frankenstein performs a hideous experiment which he hopes will bring the dead back to life. With the help of his assistant he is successful in reanimating a man recreated from parts gathered from corpses but the creature is unpredictable and horrifying. The doctor flees back to his home in Switzerland leaving his assistant in charge of destroying the monster. But Dr. Frankenstein soon finds that he cannot hide from his shameful secret forever as mysterious murders are committed around him forcing him to question if his creation really is dead and gone...

Someplace, lies in the recess of collective psyche a piece of Austrian Switzerland, a craggy network of mounts and valleys of which the Liechtenstein represents most vividly its expression. Indeed, disheveled minds would be prompt to populate the Schloss Vaduz's walls with the figure of doctor Victor Frankenstein. The mythopoeic representation of a Swiss Prometheus trying to vainquish Death can only excite reveries amidst the somewhat monotonous landscape of the Alps. However, one has to wonder what led Toei animation to produce a TV Special around the Monster of Frankenstein by mid 1981. Up to this year, Mary Shelley's myth had been seriously dented by read more

Overall an 8.
seen via eng dub
note: you may see a time issue. you may be watching the 88 minute version not the longer one listed here. Some say the 88 version is incomplete because of this but they are wrong. The difference is the commercials. yes, that is the reason behind the difference. So, with that said in mind the person who is wrong are those claiming the longer version 150 or so minutes.

Pros and cons

Pros
- very touching piece
- artwork was decent
-voice work matched the lips

Cons
-not please really on the ending. Would have like a nicer way because i felt bad for the innocent monster. read more

While Akira was the first anime I bought myself (and the one that made me love anime), this was actually the first anime movie I ever owned. It was in the late 80:s, it was on VHS and it was badly dubbed to swedish. I didn't know what anime was and the visual style was unlike anything I'd seen. It didn't appeal very much to me then, but the story was dark and I loved anything animated so I watched it over and over.

It is clear to me now that the production values were rather low on this title and the swedish dub did nothing read more
