OBSCURE O.V.A.S, *Bounty Dog

Anime’s answer to Total Recall?

In the not to distant future, mankind colonizes the moon. However, one of the main companies behind the huge domed cities on the moon’s surface appears to be planning on using some alien technology they’ve found to create a new weapon. A group of special infiltrators called Bounty Dogs come from Earth to investigate. One of them keeps having flashbacks about his sister dying, and is somehow linked to a bunch of evil little girl clones of her. What proceeds is a series of kickass car chases similar to Bubblegum Crisis, and action sequences with mechas designed by Ghost In The Shell’s Masamune Shirow.

This isn’t exactly the greatest 2-episode OVA ever made, but it is pretty up there if your a fan of action sci-fi. If you liked the manga Seraphic Feather, then this is right up your alley.
