Growing up in Yorkshire in the 80s, I never saw this awesome-looking anime as a kid thanks to our uninspiring regional programming. However, if I had, this intro sequence would have made me do a little squirt of wee. The show itself is pretty standard manga but it's quite odd in that it was produced by Mattel in asia for the US market. The show then flopped in the US but was a success in the asian markets. Mattel then created a toy-line which were really sucessful although I've never actually seen any of them in real life. Here's the first episode.
