Anime DVD Review

A lost anime classic! If we had to choose the top ten anime films we'd want to be stranded on a desert island with, this one would be near the top of that list. You'll never get tired of it. Director Kunihiko Yuyama and scriptwriter Takeshi Shudo clearly had a special love for the Goshogun team, as they are imbued with a depth of character and love for each other rarely seen in any kind of media. The story splits between three points of the main character's life, as she fights her way through a dream while in a coma.

One of our favorites!This film deals with many big issues, from the death of an old friend to the tragedies of just getting old. That you never see the face of the "old" Remy is one of the unspoken critical points of this skillfully directed film, as her friends gather around her bedside to remember the glory days. And the film single-handedly makes up for every bit of sexism -ever- in anime, by presenting one of the most fully-realized, strong-willed, independent women characters ever created in any film.

Don't miss this one! After the first viewing, you'll be confused, by the second you'll be amazed, and by the third, you'll be ripping the DVD out of the tray and showing it to your friends screaming "You gotta see this!". This film is a real treasure - from the opening music to the closing "See You Again".

Editors Note: This film was re-released on DVD in 2005 by Central Park Media and renamed Time Stranger. While we know the new packaging is cheesy what's inside is nothing short of amazing.

Below: This 80s classic anime title features all of the original characters from the 70s vintage robot action show GoShogun.
