    Hmm… the animation looks kinda weird but cool in a way, and that theme song is definetly pumping. I just hope that the trailer didn’t spoil the only good parts of the movie, there better be more.

    I wonder if this will tie-in to the recent Skullman anime that they had a year back? Certainly was leading into another 009.

      Sadly the original video was marked private recently, so I updated it with another one. Quality isn’t as good as the original one however.

        Quality is ok…. but i miss the sexy theme song from the original. Should’ve downloaded that when i had the chance.
