* KillSat: SOL and Floyd.

* KillSat: SOL and Floyd. SOL in particular bears the distinction of being the first anime Kill Sat that many western anime watchers have seen (but is not the first anime Kill Sat period -- that honor belongs to the one in Manga/CatsEye).

There was a highly-acclaimed {{Anime}} movie adaptation made in 1988. Its widely different outside the above mentioned premise. It is primarily known for its great animation, as well as the MindScrew plot, since it primarily focuses on events from the first third of the manga, while simultaneously removing or incorporating plot lines from later in the manga as well as rewriting a few plot points. The film was one of the things that helped disprove the AnimationAgeGhetto, at least for Anime in the West, and is still considered a landmark anime in the US. It has been dubbed twice into English -- once in 1988 by [=InterSound=] in the US for the Hong Kong market (this dub was included when the movie was released by Creator/StreamlinePictures, leading to a misconception that they produced it themselves) and again in 2001 by Animaze via Pioneer (later known as Creator/{{Geneon}}).

Being over 2000 pages in six hefty volumes, the story the original manga tells is much longer than the film. It is more violent and focuses more on politics. Critical plot developments in the film are often {{Late Arrival Spoiler}}s in the manga. The series is notable for being the very first comic book series to utilize entirely computer coloring, when it was first released in the US by Creator/{{Marvel}}'s Epic Comics in the late 80s/early 90s. Later English editions from Dark Horse and Kodansha Comics USA restore the original black-and-white artwork, but the pages remain flipped from left-to-right.
