Aum Shinrikyo recruitment anime features levitating Asahara character

I remember seeing screen captures of this anime around the time when Aum Shinrikyo gassed the Tokyo subways, but never actually watched the full episode. Here it is, in its full glory.

By the way, the best book about the Aum attacks–and one of the best ways to understand the dark underbelly of the Japanese psyche–is Underground by Haruki Murakami.
