(1994) [presented by Streamline Pictures and Orion home video]
This was my first brush with anime. I saw it flipping through the satellite channels way back in '94. I stopped on Sci-Fi, saw a disclaimer for viewer content and fell in love. They used to show anime, in primetime, unedited back then. After, I saw from the Olympic stadium scene to the end "What is this movie, and where can I get it?" I said to myself. Three years later, I found it on VHS and bought it. I saw it all the way through, several times that week. The movie was dubbed poorly, and edited. It was mine though, and it was glorious. If you haven't seen this movie, get it! I am sure if you know anyone who has anime this is in their collection. If you love it, try to get the new special edition just released last year. They cleaned it up, re-dubbed it, and retranslated it. In addition, with all the hidden features, it is one not to miss.
