To whoever put this clip up on Google Video: this IS something the God of Biomechanics will let you into heaven for.
Move over, "Ex Machina": the 1988 live-action Appleseed Special Prologue is a sci-fi spectacle to die for. The saxophones! The clumsy-looking, cross-eyed Briareos! The bored-looking blonde gaijin who looks like she's taking a break from "Diff'rent Strokes" to play Deunan! Doin' a drive-by in Odaiba with uzis! Along with the legendary Nutrocker, this is one of the pure, glittering moments of Eighties otakudom. Enjoy it while you can.
Produced as PR for the 1988 Appleseed anime OVA, it's the brainchild of legendary producer Takami Akai, of late forced to resign from Gainax for posting disparaging remarks about anime fans on the Japanese BBS system 2ch (to wit, that it's "like putting his face next to an anus and inhaling deeply.")
