Main Characters:

  • Isamu Alva Dyson – lightheaded boy;
  • Guld Goa Bowman – strong, half alien a bit brutal man;
  • Sharon Apple – computer program, in some sort – girl;
  • Myung Fang Lone – the singer girl;

So what can I say.. basically its a bit shortened compilation of the same name OVA. Though I loved OVA, because of its unique music, developed style, over all atmosphere and far from simple story this movie somehow doesn’t show all of it.. First I watched it with subs (while ova was in english), obviously poorer quality, and missing some important scenes (though according to TV Troops movie contains 20 min of extra new animation in the main battle but that didn’t add any value for me) .. so no… I love ova, but I don’t love movie.. and for all people I would definitely suggest to watch OVA instead..

But I didn’t notice one scene in OVA, which I spotted here – when Isamu takes a blond girl out.. well you will see what i mean..

Damn! even in youtube there was a better version than the one i watched.. though I don’t read in that language… [Edit: video was deleted]
