CRAZY FUNNY AND A GREAT MOVIE. A BIT LONG FOR A CARTOON THOUGH.
A truly classic anime series edited into a sort of coherent film. Although, I don't think the manga creators (Asao Takamori - aka Ikki Kajiwara, and Tetsuya Chiba) should be credited as the filmmakers. The credits say it's directed by Osamu Dezaki. Just sayin'.
