Hi. I'm not a super serious anime reviewer, but I saw that this one didn't have any reviews, so I thought I'd try to give you the gist of it.
First, if you don't like fantasy, there's nothing here for you. The eery alien world is the true main character, and it is not character driven, though there are some good characters. The plot plays out like a chapter from an alien bible. I love it, but I know most people who watch anime like heavily character driven things. I mean, generally with OVAs you'll find little character development, but this one is particularly mythological in
its style. Big things transpire in an alien world.
The art is good for the time. There's no 5 tone shading, and I've seen better action sequences, but the character designs and the atmosphere are top notch. Like I said before, the world is the main character, and it comes through in the variety of characters as well as the mysterious and alien backdrops. The "demons" are very creative and striking in their design, and were a highlight for me.
The sound is fairly crappy by today's standards. No surprise there. The ending theme however is really cool and funky-- check it out.
I really liked this because I like old OVAs, and I like plot driven anime that transport me to another world. The art was good enough. The designs themselves were great. It was generally trippy and alien, and kept me interested. If that sounds good to you, give it a shot.
What did you think of this review?
