Preliminary
It's a standard medium-to-medium adaptation - pretty much a waste of time, but being a fan of BoF, it does hold a certain charm. This, however, has absolutely nothing to do with the manga itself. Storytelling/interpretation, drawings, etc... it's all subpar. If you're a fan of the game, sure, you MIGHT not dislike it. It doesnt really follow the game much and changes some stuff. it follows it only a little. nothing special. Its plain, adds new characters, is too short and isnt very good or original. There are parts of the game in it and they are forced. The game itself didnt read more

Very good short series.
I havent finished the show but this looks like an alternate story and you really don't need to since this doesn't seem to have much to do with it.
It's a fast read and somewhat generic but the pacing is good enough that i didnt mind.
The art for everything except the main characters was pretty great.
There is fanservice, which felt out of place, but i didnt care much.
There's just enough here that i didn't feel disappointed in the end.
I liked the story there was just enough twists that could be made for a 6 chapter comic
I enjoyed it, read more

A rather bizarre combination of bloody violence and cutesy teenage girl ninjas that just doesn't quite work. One character in this anime has no problem hunting down and killing an apparently innocent bear for sport, but turns out to be deathly afraid of . . . frogs. It's too violent for little kids but also too annoyingly cute for adults. Might work for 12 year old's. Includes a PG-13 hot springs scene. I thought it was a good experience to say the least. But the fact that the series isn't continued really is a downer on a good thing. It seems that the man who read more

This is an OVA series about a young man who has to fight against an evil group bent on obtaining the hilt to an evil sword in order to take over the world. His father runs a swordmanship school, and when he hears the news he leaves on a journey to find a sacred sword that can battle against the evil one. That leaves his son in charge of the school, and also in charge of fighting against the bad guys. He's a little wimpy and naive; and is of course drooled over by several girls, but surprisngly he's a good fighter. This is a read more

Very good little, short anime. It is a must see just for the comedy and story line. Despite the title.. the picture and the description don't let it fool you. It's set in the modern era.. for some reason the kid carries around a real sword to school and no one cares. Lots of nudity and a Swiss cheese plot what make up this movie. Add in a horrible translation and dub, i highly suggest least doing subtitles. Despite all this though it turns out amazingly funny. So stupid at parts you have to laugh, reminds me a lot of Ranma 1/2 or DNA^2 type read more

Another anime classic that I caught on the Sci-Fi channel about 10 years ago. (C'mon, Sci-Fi, start showing anime again!) Iria: Zeiram the Animation is a 6 episode mini-series that actually be likened to a 3-hour action flick. Iria shines becuase of the world and chracters that are created. The characters themselves are well-done are show a good amount of depth and personality for a mini-series. Escpecially the titular character, Iria. Iria is a tough-as-nails bounty hunter who is just starting out, but her character is still that of a young woman. Strong but feminine. Iria is a great role-model for young women, and a read more

I celebrate this movie for one reason and one reason only. It does something that no movie in its genre has done before: it makes its characters real. It embraces their infirmities, and brings out the true psyche of the apocalypse movie: a human being suddenly faced with the end of everything. How would you handle it? Would you go mad, would you embrace evil in the name of survival, or would you rise up and fight? Unlike the overly dramatized, preternatural courage exhibited by certain characters in Armageddon and Independence Day, not all of us will find the strength to rise up to the read more

Now I move onto the i'll fated "Burn up Excess" t.v. series. A tidy little effort THAT never knew the phrase. "Quit while you still have a marginal audience." But no. They did not quit. They kept right on cranking out big boobed babes with badges. Episode after brain boinking episode, and many of us out there still love them for it. So getting down to the subject matter, in #2 the team of warrior girls delves deeper into what makes them tick. From the origins of Rio's recruitment. To the reason why the green haired boss lady has that lone wolf look in read more

This is a fabulous anime! This show is unlike anything out there and rivals the Miyazaki movies. Full of heart, innocence, and simplly adorable, this serise follow a young girl, Yurie, and her friends in a small Japanese town near the coast in the 1980's. One day Yurie discovers she has been bestowed with powers and made into a Kami (god). The title Kamichu is roughly translated into, "God is a middle school student," and is very adorable. Even if cute isn't your thing, this is an anime for everyone. The animation is fabulous! The way the girls move and act in their enviorment is read more

The show is enjoyable, but his overall takes its time [in other words, a little slow]. That's not meant as criticism as I often like slower paced shows, just be aware that, despite being about kendo, this isn't a driving action series. It's more about the 5 girls, their teacher, and the 2 guys that are part of the high school kendo club. I especially like the fact that the characters, particularly the boys, are NOT the usual Anime stereotypes, and obvious "potential romantic connections" don't occur, which is good. I think there could've been a lot more character development, but it's still a good read more
