Ulysses 31 the Complete Collection
Another 1980's classic cartoon
blasts its way on DVD with "Ulysses 31 the Complete Collection" that successfully joins two
genres (fantasy and science fiction) into one of the best animation
series of all time.
When our valiant hero from Earth,
the ancient Greek gods, his entire crew and space ship is hurdled into
the furthest reaches of space where he encounters a variety of
challenges from these gods that include historical myths such as the
Cyclops, Poseidon and
even Antiphates the Great.
Fortunately for Ulysses, he is joined by his reckless son Telemachus,
Yumi, a young female alien telepath and also my favourite robot of all
time, Nono who has a nasty habit of getting itself into danger at almost
every turn. By working together and with Ulysses trusty dagger lightsabre,
they encounter danger, heroics and the wrath of the gods as they
endeavor to reach the birthplace of their ancestors, Earth.
Both the video and audio quality of this title is a little dated but
even on our LG Plasma, the quality was quite acceptable that made it quite
easy to get lost in this entertaining series.
This collection features over 650 minutes of Ulysses 31 that contains
the entire series of this popular Japanese cartoon series which contains
one of the best animation storylines of the 1980's and even that catchy
"Ulysses" theme song that is still inside my head after two decades.
Highly Recommended to anyone who loved the series or for those that wish
to experience that "retro" feel again. Great Stuff!
