A stone-cold anime classic arrives on Blu-ray

A stone-cold anime classic arrives on Blu-ray but alas, pretty much all we get here extras-wise is a booklet clunkily translated from Japanese, with cracking production imagery printed so small that the whole exercise is a waste of time. Luckily, the same can’t be said for the cyber-bikers/monster-mash main feature – a lot of work has been done to image and sound alike so they can take full advantage of Blu-ray’s possibilities. If LOTR won’t make you upgrade your setup, this just might – but watch it in Japanese. As so often with anime, the English dub is appalling.
