Follow the series each week by going to new york city to a japanese video store ( were no one spoke english ) and purchased a VSH tape of a month worth of the cartoon. From Bloody start to the Bloody end ( 72 eps. of the first vol.) I was glued to my seat! this series, to me, was and still is the best of the anime best! From the bronze, silver, and gold cloth armor designs, to the plot line and story, this cartoon kicked ass! looking forward to seeing the new " canvas annime"
