So this film isn't that good, then? I'm not too surprised. I've always got the impression that this is some strange modern day B-movie. Hangyolas looks kind of cool though.

Death Kappa's main contribution to the genre is the moment where Hideaki Anno screams, "Now is the time to restore true Showa ambition!"
