“Casshan: Robot Hunter is a 1993 OVA series from Tatsunoko Production, spanning four episodes. It is based on characters from Tatsunoko’s 1973 television series, whittling the narrative down to roughly two hours in total. The franchise and character are also more commonly known as Casshern, though the OVA series has retained the Casshan name up through its most recent North American release. Some of you reading this may be familiar with the protagonist through his appearances in the series Casshern Sins, the live-action movie Casshern, or perhaps the Wii fighting game Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars.
“Casshan: Robot Hunter holds up remarkably well. Though it’s been twenty years since its release (and forty since the premiere of the original series), it does a remarkable job in delivering the essence of Casshern. It’s short and sweet, but it’s a demonstration of Tatsunoko Production in fine form.”
