This series looks at the
relationship between two cops in a specialist unit with a twist; one of them,
J is a steam powered android with amazing abilities that are constantly on
call to help his partner, Daisuke Aurora.
Fighting crime in the city
of Judah is like a cyberpunkís dream, however belonging to a secret government
organisation also has itís perils, especially when another super powered
behemoth is ripping the underworld apart and normal authorities seem powerless
to stop them.
On top of that there is
also a gang war underway with a young and psychotic man being given the keys
to the Family and all the privileges that the title gives. Forming an army of
mutated ex and escaped prisoners, there is going to be all out war unless it
can be averted.
There are four episodes on
the disc and they are:
The pacing and
characterisation of this series is very well realised and I think that most
viewers will identify and enjoy the main characters of J and Daisuke.
Animation is sensational and the feeling of power when J fully activates is
almost palpable when his steam engine kicks in. The graphic style of the
series uses many special visual tricks to get the story across.
Without giving away key
plot elements, I can say quite readily that the ending is a cliffhanger that
will have you hanging for the next
DVD in the series.
16:9 aspect ratio is used
on this one and the entire feature as far as I could see was flawless. There
is nothing to complain about as far as the appearance of this disc goes. A
number of animating tricks have been used such as lens flares and soft focus
to great effect.
Audio sounds really good
on this title despite the fact that itís only in Dolby 2.0 regardless of
whether or not the mix is English or Japanese. The dubbing has been well done
and sounds good, as opposed to some features where the English soundtrack
sounds so out of place that it really should not have been put there.
Not a single thing here!
