Panzer Dragoon OVA
Released in 1998. Produced by General Entertainment and Sega. Co-production by Production I.G. Animation by Studio Giants. 3D animation by IKIF+.
Legends speak of a Dark Tower with a race of dragons that awaits the command to arise and wreak havoc. At least Kyle used to believe they were only legends until his lady, Alita, is stolen by the Black Dragon. Now Kyle must ally with Blau, a blue dragon, to rescue her before she becomes the catalyst for the Dark Tower's final program: the destruction of the world.
Based on the incredibly popular Sega Saturn games, the Panzer Dragoon OVA condenses the core story into a 25-minute animated adventure. The story is simple and moves along quickly, as is expected for a short movie. The 3D animation makes me feel so nostalgic for late 90s 3D animation.
What the Panzer Dragoon OVA has to offer is eye candy, action, and fan service. So if you're a fan of the game, you'll love seeing the familiar characters and references to the game's stages. However, if you haven't played the game, this OVA will be just another average 90s anime.
- If you have a device that supports casting, via Chrome my videos can be casted to your TV. The cast icon appears after you click to play a video.
- Most of the anime on this site was made for old TV resolutions (non wide screen). However, keep in mind that most modern TVs have the ability to stretch the screen. Try that feature if the vertically cropped screen is bothering you. Here's a comparison of standard/stretched screens.
- Is video not playing? Wait a minute or two; depending on your Internet speed it could take a while.
- Is video loading slow? The High Quality videos require high speed Internet. You might have better luck with the Low Quality version. If that doesn't help, try downloading the movie so you can play it in full.

- MP4 plays natively on pretty much everything: computers, TVs, smartphones, tablets, video game systems, set-top boxes like Roku/Apple TV, etc.
- Try it out! Save this movie to a thumb drive and play it on your TV.
- As mentioned above in Notes, make use of your TV's stretch feature if the vertically cropped screen is bothering you.
- Another great option is to use Plex to stream MP4 movies from your computer to your TV through your Wifi. It's a free app. Install it on your Windows or Mac, then install it on your set-top box (Roku/Apple TV/Fire Stick/etc.). Just note that Plex will only detect these movies in an Other Videos library because the “Movies” library doesn't detect rare/obscure anime classics.
