Movie Reviews

Movie? I don't think so.
Cooan Ayakashi | Vancouver, Canada | 12/13/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This wasn't a movie... it was the 3 eps rolled into one tape. It kind of sucked that way too, seeing as I already owned the first two tapes. But otherwise, I love the series... it's just too bad they had to rip you off this way."
Silly Schoolgirl Superheros
Joseph L. Elkhorne | Mulgrave, Victoria AUSTRALIA | 07/11/2000

"Sayaka, president of the Debutante Club at St. Ignatio high school, intends to rule the world. She is so cute and soooooo bad.Unfortunately for her, Reika and Rie, the two officers [and initially, the only members] of the Etiquette club, have the power to thwart her plans -- the Battle Skipper combat vehicles developed by her grandfather.This anime is a comedy, however, with heaps of action and destruction thrown in -- along with "magical girl" transformations, power suits, armored vehicles, mechas, and conspiracy.As silly as Project A-ko and just as much fun as the superhero parody "Moldiver", it may not break new ground but is loads of fun, nonetheless.Attractive character designs and a colorful animation style make this one definitely eye candy. There's even a hint of a Sohryuden dragon, in my mind anyway, in a cameo role. And Sayaka's toady, Todou [heh] is such an inept bungler.Saori, one of the new students who joins the Etiquette Club, sports the weirdest hair style perhaps in all anime. LOL. The other characters have their own quirks, including the Artificial Intellegence of the Battle Skipper vehicles.My only disappointment is that the series consists of only 3 videos."
Boring beyond all belief...

"It's hard sometimes to describe what exactly it is that makes a show lousy. Is it mediocre dialog? Lackluster action sequences? Lifeless and uninteresting characters? So-so animation? Or how about a incredibly unoriginal clique-ridden (slapped together)plot that puts you to sleep? In other words, this anime is just plain bad, and there's nothing really to redeem it from that status. No compelling characters, no cool designs, no great music, nothing. Save your money and skip this one. There's better stuff out there."
It's Sailor Moon meets Gundam!

"Set in the not-to-distant-future, Battle Skipper is a 3-episode OVA series(despite the fact its labeled as a "movie")that deals with the five members of the Etiquette Club in one of Japan's most prestigious schools are secretly a group of crimefighting mecha pilots called the Ex-Stars. Their main competition is the school's other club, the Debutante Club. Their leader is planning on taking over the world with her own army of mechas. So, the Ex-Stars try to foil their plans, while still keeping a decent grade average! This series was based on a Japanese toy line, but became its own unique and dynamic action comedy series. For fans of Project A-Ko or Sailor Moon, Battle Skipper is a hilarious anime with lots of great gags and a wonderful sense of fun!"
