    Man. Good is just the begining.

    I swear its probably the best anime TV series out there.

    The protagonist you dont quite like at first. Hes not a kid. Hes a professional soldier and really good at it.

    Betrayed he is set on a course of action that will change the scope of the universe.

    The battles are realistic and intense.

    The feel is somewhat Bladerunner and throw in some of the intense bits of Saving Private Ryan and Full Metal Jacket.

    Get it now. You wont be dissapointed!

    At the prices you can currently find it at the series can't be beat. It has a really gritty feel to it, and probably one of the best stories I've seen in a mecha series. You should get it, as I doubt you'll regret it.

    I'm also considering of picking this up. I've read the plot summaries and I must admit I do like the story.

    According to the site on Wikipedia, there will be a remake of it this year.

    Also: I have not seen the whole thing, but I would say that it is a food series to get. Go for it.

    Its not a remake. Its a prequel. Explains how Chirico ends up with the Red Shoulder Votoms team. The toughest and most ruthless military unit in Votoms lore.

    Sub only, although there is an extra on one of the discs that has episode 1 dubbed. I never watched that particular extra, but I heard the dubbing was pretty bad.
