WSR Narrative Review
A tour de force animation achievement with extraordinary details. A classic science fiction set in the Neo-Tokyo of 2019. It’s the story of an angry young motorcycle gangster who encounters a mysterious supernatural force that slowly transforms him into a one-man apocalypse.
The picture quality is absolutely first rate. The transfer at 1.80:1 was sourced from a newly created print.
The aggressive soundtrack was mastered from a Dolby Stereo® Sony PCM 1630 digital master tape.
