MS30 – SWAT Kats



This looks like a job for the SWAT Kats!

Two masked vigilantes with access to a jet and a bunch of weird missiles fight to save Megakat city from various vile villains. Also, everyone’s a cat-person.

GO, BROLY, BROLY, GO!

In the first Dragon Ball movie under the “Super” subheading, Akira Toriyama gives the fans what they want: the canonization of Broly, everybody’s favorite super saiyan, and a nearly hour-long fight sequence. What’s not to love?
