Before the dub we know of in 2001 comes in, this is what we had when someone dubbed the movie and this is Gundamn stupid and funny.
I just love how unusually calm Noa was being in that situation (or sounds like at least) with a cheesy British accent no less. And I thought that the dubbed Arthur Kirkland and Cecilia Alcott voices were ridiculously hilarious with similar British accents, the only difference is that the latter 2 were by relatively professional VAs.
This is probably the dumbest anime I've ever owned in my collection with the most wonderfully shitty dub to go with it. I've seen a good few 80s/90s low budget OAVs over the years. Some are silly but make for a good guilty pleasure like Mad Bull 34, Baoh etc. and then there's the likes of Vampire Wars.
Y'know, dubs as a whole have gotten better the last 20 years and they are generally well compared to the original Japanese VAs, but at the same time, I loved some of the old dubs which pretty much go hand in hand with the anime, especially with the over-the-top, mindless violent OVAs made during the late 80s and early 90s.
Also, there are people who say that anime today is a shell of itself from what it was back then, and in a few respects I understand where they're coming from. But, looking at lot of the things that came out between Akira (1988) and Neon Genesis Evangelion, (1995) were pretty mediocre and rather predictable in terms of content. To be fair, we have a much different tastes in our heroes, situations and extreme content compared to the Japanese, but it's not hard to see similarities between anime in the early 90's and today in terms of familiarity with certain genres.
Not that I'm necessarily complaining about it per se, just simply stating the odd similarities.
