Hmm very strange stuff indeed. Perhaps it did lose a little in the translation, for example I cant imaging them saying “Something bothersome has come…” yet that is the neato subititle.
Anyhow, still lots of fun and some of the combat sequences are awesome, jets ‘n’ missiles etc arcing all over the place through the clouds. I am pretty sure there was some quite meaningful stuff going on and inferring alot it does get you thinking – that said a better translation I am sure would help.
I have a little more anime (Ghost in the Shell and Appleseed), I’ll have to find myself some more after that. There are heaps of interesting newish ones and I am looking forward to revisiting the likes of Akira, Ninja Scroll and the original Robotech: Macross Saga.
