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!"
Why did I buy this?

"It was cheep & looked cute. I thought at least I would enjoy the animation if nothing else, but it was really a lot better than I was expecting! It looks so much like Tenchi (hair, clothes, setting, etc.) that that's what I thought I'd get. (I love Tenchi, too, of course) But the atmosphere is totaly different. Hmmmmm... can't really think of a series it reminds me of right off. It just has a really realistic, inspirational feel...It's really easy to get into how Akari feels about getting to University Satilite. She's excited & determined, even when she gets a bit of a shock, learning she's not as great as she thought, at the beginning. All the charicters are cool & original. For the most part they are too cute & awesome to hate. (because that happens too much! Poor Amelia... Poor Usagi... Poor Mia... weeeeell, Miaka's pushing it, but I like her, too.) None of them are the wimpy kind, anyway (they get bashed most) but they can't be, not if they got into US. Sorry, I just had to emphisize how well designed the characters are. They make the story great. The only one I don't liek is the B!tchy second year she meets in the first ep. XP but it's good to have bad guys, or how do you have heros. Oh, & another thing is, I didn't get bored. Not at all. I get bored easily, too. Still wavering? Get this anime. I'm telling you, you'll love it..."
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."
