Anime DVD Review

This excellent flick deposits a motley collection of characters into the middle of a civil war on a terraformed Venus. Created by YAS (Yoshikazu Yasuhiko, character designer of Gundam), the art is crisp and the backgrounds are awesome (some of the best — ever). Featuring a good blend of character development and action, this anime film is an often-overlooked classic.
The Venus Wars: Pat Benatar called and she wants her outfit back...
The monowheel racers make us wonder if this isn't where Phantom Menace "borrowed" the pod-race sequence from. And Yas did it 10 years earlier!
