|Notes||Scramble Wars: Keep on Running! Genom Trophy Rally. OVA, Artmic, 1992, 40 mins.
US: part of "Super-Deformed Double Feature", AnimEigo, 1993.
|Review||SUPER DEFORMED DOUBLE FEATURE (AnimEigo/Anime Projects, 67 mins, cert PG, ?12.99.
The second feature "Scramble Wars", is anime's version of the "Wacky Races". It's set on Gaiarth, and has a number of Youmex stars competing against each other to win the Genom rally trophy. The line-up includes the Gall Force girls, the Knight Sabres, Ital and Sahari (of GENESIS SURVIVER GIARTH) and a blue Boomer. Few of the competitors ara above pulling a few dirty tricks in order to win. I found bits of it (mainly the rivalry between the Knight Saber girls) very funny, but other parts fell a bit flat. And it's alleged by some that the original "Wacky Races" was better.
Verdict: Minor league stuff for dedicated fans. (**)
