Audience Reviews for Green Legend Ran

This was my introduction to anime. I caught it when it came on the Sci-Fi channel in the late 90s. Today I can tell you it has a bit in common with the movie/book Dune. I was fascinated by it as a child. It was unlike anything I had watched up to that point in my life. After I saw this I caught other anime films/series on the Sci-Fi channel including: Galaxy Express 999 (and it's sequel) Tenchi Muyo! The Movie Record of Loddoss War Fatal Fury The Motion Picture Armitage Akira

It folows all it's characters through to their natural, and at times, foregone conclusions. Everything the characters did, and the reasons behind them made perfect sense. The action scenes were well done, but this is more of a cyber-punkish take on man's effect on nature, and how there can still be hope for the future. Ran, our main character, goes through a interesting arc, but it's a wee bit predictable. Ira, on the other hand, had a wonderfully mesmerzing arc, that has to be seen to be believed, and the religious aspects were interesting, but not taken far enough. The animation was, mostly, very good, with a scenes looking like last minute add-ins. I liked how some plot threads emerge, and are only hinted at, but still conveyed throughout, and by the end, you realize that the problems of three people actually might add up to more than a hill of beans.
