Release date: 1996
This was a one off OVA anime based on a two part manga and released in 1996 (not 1997 as imdb claims). I have used the English voice actor names as it was the dubbed version I saw. Now I do prefer original language and subtitles but, honestly, I don’t think it’d make a blind bit of difference to this one.
Jay (Tristan McAvery) and Osamu (Brett Weaver) are cereal salesmen (I kid you not) driving to get Osamu to a date that Jay has set up – it would seem. Osamu is wearing what amounts to a cat bell on a chain – because he likes it. Jay suddenly stops as there is a van on fire and men with guns – air force, he assumes, as he questions them. Suddenly something (a figure we later discover to be called Kianu (Bryan Bounds)) smashes into a vehicle, exploding it and all hell breaks loose.

All in all this was a poor anime and the animation, now, seemed dated as well. 2.5 out of 10.
