Geek Corner: My Review of the ANime Yukikaze

9 Jul

I just purchased the Platinum Limited edition release of YUKIKAZE, a relatively recent release from Bandai.

It comes with two DVD’s, one encoded in DOlby 5.1, the other in DTS. Now for all you audiophiles, I hope we are in agreement that DTS IS THE FUCKING SHIT. I listened to the anime in DTS sound and i think it blew the fur right off my cats. THe sound is amazingly crips and vibrant and Yukikaze especially during the dog fight scenes really shines in its sound mixing. Absolutely awesome.

go to their site to watch the trailer:

The story is not anything you haven’t seen before if your an anime buff, the typical tortured teen fights in ultra futuristic weaponry against a mysterious alien invader. Those of you who saw the excellent Macross Plus mini series will recognize similar themes.

Unbeknownst to the general population, an alien force opened an inter-dimensional gate in Antarctica over 30 years ago in an attempt to invade the Earth. The unified forces of Earth formed an elite military unit under command of the United Nations to combat the aliens and to push them back towards their own dimension. But the war still rages on. Rei Fukai is an elite pilot of the Special Air Force (SAF) and designated pilot of the Yukikaze, an advanced fighter armed with a sentient computer control system. When fear of alien infiltration within the SAF spreads, the Yukikaze may be the only weapon humanity has to bring an end to this war.

It is very deep in its aircraft technology, they spent a lot of time researching aircraft military technology etc. From what ive heard actual jetfighter engineers are very impressed by yukikazes aircraft design and whatnot.

Im not sure if you’d be as impressed by this if not for the ridiculously well-mixed DTS sound..but regardless its a good anime with great animation and cool story. Go rush out to best buy and purchase it, and also a surround sound system with powered subwoofer
