DVD REVIEW:

First, the "animation director of MACROSS PLUS" on the top of the DVD shouldn't be the motivator to buy this video because you are watching somewhat adults in a sort of kids character design.  I guess "Bugsy Malone" comes into mind.

Anyway, at first, I thought the anime was going a little slow but once you get to the second OAV and so on, you are hooked to the anime.  A lot of action and interesting characters to hook you in.

Now,  as for the animation.  I thought it was pretty cool and colorful.  The audio was something I don't recall it being anything major but I was expecting less from this anime to begin with and I felt I got more than expected.  Oh, the DVD comes with dubs (I dislike dubs) and for purists, subtitles (YEAH!) are also included.  If anything though, it seems you get more if you have a DVD-ROM which I don't have and so I can't see the image gallery or storyboards.  Why didn't they include it as a special feature for everyone who doesn't have a DVD-ROM to see.

Anyway, GEOBREEDERS is a fun anime to watch and I think you will enjoy it if you watch all three OAV episodes straight through.
