"o.k., 'Corrector Yui' on the surface, isnt gonna' change a whole lot of minds one way or the other about magical girls anime like say' 'Sailor Moon' or "CardCaptor Sakura'. it is very derivative looking. but set your expectations aside and just watch it and it may surprise you just a little. the manga was written by Kia Asamiya (Nadesico, Silent Mobius), who admitted this is his first shoujo (girls') manga. so, if for no other reason than that, check it out. im from missouri, and there aint a whole lot of anime around here either. i found this dvd in Dollar General for $3. a bargain at any price. i'd be interestedin finding the rest of the series. it ran for some 50 eps. the dvd itself aint got anything in the way of extras.(clean open and close animation, that's it).Curse you Viz!!!! anyway you may still like this, but it definitely wont suit everybody's tastes."
Very Fun Magical Girl Series
Hot Poison | Bentonville AR | 07/24/2008

"This 1999 anime series centers around Yui Kasuga, a computer-illiterate 14 year old who "accidently" gets chosen to save her world and cyberspace from an evil super computer and his henchmen. With the help 8 special software programs, she becomes Corrector Yui, savior of the peace in the computer world of Com Net. The dub can be a little bland at first, but it gets better over time when volumes pass. The animation is done really well for its time (before digital coloring), Most of the characters are pretty loveable, and the OP theme song rocks my socks! Too bad we will never see all 52 episodes in America, for I would haved loved to see them all. But the 16 we have are very fun to watch, with pretty transformations and a cool plot (even if it is a bit unoriginal)."
Weclome to Compnet

"Like "Sailor Moon"? Like "Card Captor Sakura"?
Like "Reboot"? Like anything that deals
with magic girls? This shows is similar
to that. The plot is that Yui goes to try to
stop the old Compnet Host, Grosser, and his minons
from weaking the Net. It's up to Yui and IR, her
cute mascot in similar to the other sidekicks
such as Luna (from Sailor Moon) and Kerbos
(Card Captor Sakura) saving the day. The japanese
sounds good, and though the dub is at least
OK in my book...thought I hadn't to watch
the dub track for one full eposide."

"This anime I would consider for ages 10 up for the brief nudity. Sailor Moon is better then this cartoon looks like it belongs on Nickolean. Yui is not your average 21 century junior high school student she can't tell the difference between a computer chip and a potato chip. she's a girl who makes contact with IR. She has to save the world when an evil super computer threatens to take over the globle system."
