This month’s episode is another ReView! What is a “ReView” episode, you might ask? Well, it’s my highly-clever (ok not really) name for episodes where I go back and revisit an older title I haven’t seen in a long time, and see if what I remember (and what my opinions on it) are still the same now that some time’s gone by. This month, I’m revisiting an 80s OVA that’s not only filled to the brim with some pretty obscure otaku references, but is also a pretty obscure American DVD release (well, as of this recording, anyway!)–Prefectural Earth Defense Force. Does this former cult classic still hold up? Let’s find out!
