Movie Reviews

Great anime, however....

"I've already seen all of Battle Athletes Victory. It's very good. In my title when I say "however" I am saying that because if you're looking to buy this DVD, I think you should be aware that this specific DVD isn't the first in the series. Actually, im not completely sure, but all the info about this DVD leads me to conclude that this contains episodes from later on in the series. It starts where Akari has ALREADY entered the University Sattellite. The beginning of the entire series however, starts off at a training school in Antarctica. So... I recommend this series yes, but I also strongly recommend that you watch it from the beginning..."
Wierd little anime... But oh, so cute!

"I had heard of Battle Athletes Toshoyden before, (Original Japanese name) way back in 1996,but have never seen it. I have to say it was well worth the wait, although I found it a bit wierd for them to be using a Saturn IV launch vehicle in the 50th century. My only disapointment was that the discs only contain a meazly 2 episodes per disc. This could have been a much better series if they had crammed all 6 episodes onto one disc. This would have been a little more {money}, but far less of a waste.If nothing else, I reccomend these discs for the beauty of the anime alone.I found a lot of Star Trek , The Outer Limits, and a whole lot of Tenchi in here. All and all, a great little anime!"
A light-hearted anime with a twist...

"The last in the OVA series Battle Athletes, Go!, provided both the much anticipated conclusion of the Cosmic Beauty Competition and the answers to some of the problems presented in the first two installments. The story centers around Akari and her chums as they compete for the most coveted of all titles, Cosmic Beauty ooooo...eeee...aaaaah. By this time it's really down to three contestants, Akari, Kris(her friend) and Lahrri(the defending champ). There are some twists and turns mainly involving the religion involved with athletics and the (...lets say tense) relationship between Kris, Lahrri and the evil Mylandah. The ending is fitting for the series and is actually very unexpected, well it was for me anyway. It gets 5 shiny gold stars!"
Battle Athletes the entire series

"The art work was excellent as well as the sound quality. The story arc held together quite well but did slow in some parts.
Over all quite enjoyable. I will be playing it again whenever I would like light, feel good entertainment.
This is what I purchase movies and books for, entertainment."
