I'll have to see if any of the people I know who are serious collectors
of Japanese animation might have this on tape --it's something I've
always wanted to try animating myself.

I saw an add for this show in the Japanese animation magazine "NewType."
It was something of a shock to find the two interests of mine suddenly
being connected!

The translation I was given for the ad described the show as being about
the "strange and violent creatures" from a 570,000,000 year old Canadian
