Why did I buy it ?
15 September 2001 | by giolittigiovanniSee all my reviews

Don't buy it, I'm not a great expert of anime but I bet this is the worst that Yamato Video realized. They spoiled a great videogame!!! Main faults: lack of a good plot, machistic, and terribly boring. What else could I add?.If this had been a pilot episode, I could have said:"Well, it's not so bad, let's see the next episodes" But this's not Yamato's will.
