Frank Summers: MD Giest was one of my first animes I ever bought, well after grabb'n as many Starblazer and Robotech eps. as I could. I was so enthralled when I found MDG 2 in the store, that I snagged it out of my friend's hand and bought it. First off, I think its main problem was that it had to be _the_ worst dub I've ever seen. Krauser, the main baddie, was a whinny loud mouth, and Giest sounded like he suffered from strep throat. That is, the few times that Giest was even in it! The story didn't have that drive the original did. I just didn't get that disgusted feeling that Jerra _truely_ was a horrible place to live. Which brings me to my next point... Though I know that the art doesn't make a good flick, in this case it certainly couldn't hurt. While MDG didn't have the best animation, its charaters were detailed and propotioate (talking symetry here!), and its backgrouds were horrifically and professioally rendered. MDG 2 lacked that edge and rises nothing above an oridinary afternoon cartoon. Anne Packrat: Watching MD Geist is comparable to having toenails ripped out by an blind manicurist using half a pair of scissors. Jorge R. Frank: I'd rather pry my eyeballs out with a claw hammer than watch MD Geist again.
