In the distant future, war and peace walk side by side in the pseudo-utopian place called Jesus Town (formerly Jerusalem), ruled by a handsome, yet cruel seraphim named Girjev and his android companion, Mikhail, long for total peace. Sealed far from civilization a long time ago is an android, code named Hakaider. Since his memory is rusty, he does not know his true purpose. After his fight with Jesus Town bikers, Kaoru and her band of rebel find him. He goes insane yet again and starts to whip the rebels one by one, only to have them killed by more of Girjev's troops, all except Kaoru. Hakaider then regains his memory, thanks to Kaoru, whom he starts taking a liking to and promises to free Jesus Town from Girjev and Mikhail.

This is awesome, man! And woman! Everyone should watch this. Its educational, full of minerals, mostly metal, though.

Seriously, its an early appearance of Mai Honsho, who steals the show as the rebel waif. Expect to see her in other works, such as Shomuni.

Oh, and uh, rock on! Metal, metal, metal!

Motorcycle + Chains + Jesus Town = Awesome! by Minty March 12, 2003 - 2:09 PM PST

I was never the same after seeing Mechanical Violater Hakaider. It...changed me. Changed my expectations about movies. The hero should shoot out sparks and ride a killer motorcycle. Please, go out and buy yourself a six-pack and rent this movie. It's terrible in all the best ways.
