What They Say
Kazuki is plagued by visions of giant, destructive robots that no one else can see. But all of the years of ridicule are about to pay off!

Before he knows what’s happening, Kazuki gets ensnared by a pretty face, and then a mad scientist’s experiment throws him into his world of visions! Now the danger is very real and his allies are twice as strange as he ever imagined! On the plus side, he gets to drive the robots!

The Review!
Three years after its original single disc series release, Dual has finally gotten itself a box set release.

While some of the earlier box set releases this year were little more than a slipcover around the keepcases, Dual’s higher price compared to this brings a more elegant looking package. The box itself is a very sturdy type that’s glossy black all around. Each of the large side panels features a standalone piece of artwork of one of the women from the series while the spine presents some of the runic style imagery. The series logo can be found on the top while the bottom has all the usual technical information and lists the features. The keepcases inside are essentially what the individual releases were minus the neat clings that came in those limited edition releases. The love of the clear slipcover does continue with this release, as the two main panels each provide shots of other women from the show while a band along the bottom on three sides has the series logo, making it easy to find. This is a great looking little set.
