Mixed feelings on this one… even though it’s not a masterpiece, it’s still a classic I wouldn’t like to see Marvel-ized…

I am sort of annoyed at people like you…you call hate everything just because it’s made in the USA…anime is better than animation, but this is a mediocre piece – why not let them do a remake?

True…but the new one does not look like an anime…while the old one reminds me of Captain Harlock :D
