Cool Generator Gawl.... Anyone seen this one? It's good...

Hi-ya all,

if you've not seen Generator Gawl or have not even heard of it, it's good. It's a mid-90ts anime with humor, mecha type monsters and defenders, with intrigue and the usual "samurai" spirit between opponents who respect each other while attempting to kill one another.

Won't give away spoilers but its actually based in 2007!!! A professor, Takuma Nekasa, uncovers a gene code that will unlock our body's greatest mystery and expose mankind's greatest threat. So, Gawl, Koji, & Ryo, three young scientists from the future, must travel back in tame to correct this mistake from the past.

The catch? They have only 3 months to save the world from the mysterious and cunning Ryuko Saito (Lead Scientist, feminine control the world type) and her "generators," unearthly assassins posing as "humans." As Ryo and Koji try to complete their mission, Gawl must become like his enemy to fight on their terms. It may cost him is humanity - and his girlfriend.

This is a sleeper hit and a good one @ that. It's got the typical Japanese "fatalistic" point of view where the trio fight against fate to over come it to control their own lives as well as a closing song that have a 70's feel! Ha, ha, ha, ha .. But none to spare, the opening song is more modern.

I've got all 12 episodes & it's from ADV. 2 thumbs up.
