The first episode is based on the Supermutants line while the second episode is based on the Japanese-exclusive Metal Mutation line. The OVA features most of the same cast as TV Tokyo's Japanese dub of the 1987 TV series most notably Hideyuki Umezu (Naruto, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, various Super Sentai) Though not released in English, the series has been completely fansubbed.
