Metal Skin Panic MADOX-01


Quality little OVA this anime. Known simply as Madox 01 here in the UK and can be found in any anime bargain bin being only 45 minutes long. I think the awesome poster above explain it all, mecha + military = action. Anime don't seem to have these fantastic painted artworks anymore,

Very simple but effective plot, private contractor building this "Metal Skin" for the US military in Japan, little accident happen where student finds prototype skin, wears skin but there is unable to get out of it and has a little adventure as he tries to meet up with his girlfriend who waiting for him.

Action filled and funny with some quality animation, the late 80's, early 90's cel painted works are my favorite and its always good to find a new one to watch.

MADOX-01 payload, nothing like overkill with the weapons.
