Movie Reviews

Decent.

(3 out of 5 stars)

"Done by Masami Obari, the man behind Fatal Fury, Battle Arena Toshinden is yet another fighting game-based anime. The action scenes are okay as usual with Obari's work, and the dub is, well, what you'd expect from a dub. The story was flat out average, although I do admit there were a few good parts. On the minus side, the climax was pretty generic and turned out to be disappointing. The uncut version features a nice scene with Sofia in the shower, but shoddy artwork ruins it. Uh, anyway, despite those flaws, Toshinden is an above average fighting anime. If you're into action anime or Obari's work, then buy it, if you can't see it first."
Excellent

"Battle Arena Toshinden is based off the short lived Fighting game that was here in America (and was part of the Playstation opening lineup). In the Anime it is about Eiji searching out his brother SHo. In the Meantime the Organization (Run by Uranus) is trying to gather Data on the Toshinden Warriors in order to create the ultimate killing machine. To battle the ORganization Eiji, Kayin, Sofia, Tracey and Gaia all team up to take the organization down after they attack and put in the hoispital Ellis. The fight sequences are typcial Anime but still real cool to watch (if you are into Action Anime). It fits right in if you are a Fan of Street Fighter, Tekken, or Fatal Fury. IT will not appeal to everyone because it is more about the fights than plot but than again most bond films are the same way and no one complains. THis is a decent anime that is worth watching at least once (or owning like I do)."
Great Anime.

"Really goes deep into the Toshinden series, from Kayin and his father's death, to Gaia and his secret daughter Ellis. I wouldn't recommend this for children under 13 years of age, because of the violence. Otherwise, a wonderful well made anime. I rank this a 4 star movie."
