Heh -- a bit of history can be interesting.
_Fight! Iczer 1_ recently released on DVD, with subtitles this
time. I've had a copy for a while, but I've been sorta scared to
watch it, 'cause there's two versions I've seen -- the original 3-OVA
format, and the reordered movie format. I watched the OVA version
dubbed, and liked it anyway. Subtitled, even on my fourth-gen tape,
it was so much better . . .
Random genki schoolgirl gets drafted by alien to save the Earth from
the alien's all-female creators . . . LFB service yuri, but I was
very happy to see it in '92.
The sequel series don't entirely suck, either. Entirely.
the original _Dangaioh_ OVAs, mostly subtext, but . . . only
available dubbed last I looked.
The original _Bubblegum Crisis_ OVAs, particularly eps 3 and 5.
None of them have very happy endings, and none of them (with the
possible exception of Crisis) really qualify as good, let alone high
art, but . . .

_I_ want to see a long, drawn out series where the fact that the main
character/protagonist is a lesbian is just sort of _there_, with no
more, or less, attention paid to it than to way most anime characters
are straight, and the rest of the series just runs its course around
Like Simoun, perhaps, but without the Central Command that's got no
clue and the weird harem aspects.

Rivers are damp.
Acids stain you,
And drugs cause cramp.
Guns aren't lawful;
Gas smells awful--
You might as well live!
