2-3. Stylish and angular; even evocative of themes that would dominate Imaishi's later works like 'Gurren Lagann', 'Kill la Kill', and 'Space Patrol Luluco'. But this piece is perhaps a bit too caught up in being as violently gory and gross as it possibly can be. I'm also not sure the idea that 'the past doesn't matter' works in this context. Without prior knowledge, the characters couldn't have escaped from jail.
Ralph Bakshi meets Heavy Metal crossed with Mickey and Mallory Knox and a dash of the good old fashioned ultra violence. And that is meant as praise indeed. Batshit crazy, wildly inventive manga from a team that's imaginations were obviously left to run rampant. Entertaining in a huge way.
