Area 88

Otaku Evolution Episode 255 - Area 88 (TV)

Area 88 is a fine show. It's nothing special, no match for the original OVA, but it does have its good aspects and notable moments. There's a lot of detail put into the aircraft and procedure and the dogfights are interesting, if brief. Much of the drama comes from what happens on the ground. But the show doesn't look great and some of the characterization is anemic. It just doesn't have the overwhelming personality and charm of the OVA. But it's not a waste of time.
