Early 80s Anime That's Pretty Darn Good by snooze May 9, 2004 - 9:02 AM PDT

Aura Battler Dunbine is one of those shows that illustrate why I like anime so much. Even a show with kind of weak animation by current standards tells a more kickass story than most american produced shows today.

I really enjoyed this first disc. It had that kind of classic anime 'drop you right into the story along with the main character and slowly show you what is going on' way of telling the story. Even by the end of the disc you get the feeling that we're still only seeing a bit of what this world has to offer. My biggest complaint is that some of the characters annoy the crap out of me (like this little fairy creature that is in it). So, If you don't mind older animation and like decent storytelling give this show a try.
