Black Magic (1985)
Shirō Masamune (writer-artist).
Two experimental warrior androids slip their bonds in a plane crash. Their sample programming sends them to assassinate the developer’s granddaughter. The military and a female reporter intervene.
Cyberpunk action. Lots of plot holes. Shirō’s original work was closer to fantasy and further from The Terminator (1984) than this version.
