An Essential Purchase for Action and Anime Lovers Alike!
At the top of the world, the ancient artifact known as NOAH'S ARK has been uncovered. Buried and forgotten since before the birth of history, it holds the potential to elevate its holder to the status of a god... or to wipe mankind from the face of the Earth in a secind! Now a desperate battle erupts across the planet as two secret organisations race to recover the lost artifact; one seeking to destroy it, the other to enslave the human race! Monstrous half-human cyborgs face off against Earth's ultimate defenders, the secret organisation known as ARCAM and their elite agents, the SPRIGGAN, in an epic duel with the future of our species as the prize. --- Spriggan has been one of the biggest Anime hits in the past few years. It has now elevated its status almost as high and the legendary AKIRA, and has recieved a hug fan base in the US and in Europe. One of the most appealing things about Spriggan is its decidedly Western feel, which has always been a downfall for other anime who couldnt pull it off. The English dub is decent but the Japanese Dub is much better. Fortunately (or unfortunately based on your opinion) this DVD doesnt feature the English dub. Spriggan's action scenes are great and well choreographed. Of particular note, the fight between the Spriggan, Ominae Yu, and the Machine Corp's, Fatman. Which features fast paced shooting and vicious knife attacks. The action is exciting and mostly realistic, taking a step back from the frantic anime action of super powered characters fighting it out with beams of light, that we see so many times in anime, to a more realistic and believable experiance. While the fighting by the cyborgs is unrealistic, by todays standards it is more believable than the extravagant movement and psychotically super powered abilities of other more eccentric anime. The story of Spriggan is compelling and unique from any other anime (or movie) i've seen. There is nothing worse than watching a movie with a story you've heard 10 times before. The pace of the movie is good and the parts between the action are thankfully enjoyable so u do not fall asleep in between :P I strongly recomend this movie for every Anime lover. It is simply a must have. BUY THIS ASAP! -Adam Kitano
