Review Japanese edn. Cover
The manga covers a much larger canvas than the anime of 1989. The detailed and delicate-looking artwork looks a bit cramped in this format and is better seen in a larger format, like the recent English-language monthly serial (printed in Japan!) which I have also seen.
All the characters and machines have silly Anglicised names - the creator must have had fun.
A classic.
References Monthly-volume English edition avalable.
