Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"While I have seen my share of anime, I am not overly big on it-- often, the humor falls flat and there's only so many times I can handle sweatdrops for no apparent reason or the random nosebleeds that seem to ail the population. (Yes, yes, cultural differences and all that. I know.) Despite that, there have been a few shining examples of seriously GOOD anime and this is one of them. It's ridiculous, which is where is gets its humor... like the episode that is ALL about a tune no one can name but everyone can hum. I've only seen an episode or two of Seinfeld, but I understand it as a reference to pointless humor and so, if I must compare, this would rate up there next to Seinfeld in that manner. I think this was better than Seinfeld, though.

On a technical note, the dubbing is exceptional on these and if you've watched any amount of anime (or foreign films) you'll know that the right dubbing can make or break the experience. Often times, we're given no recourse but to watch it subbed because the dubbing is so bad. No so with these; they did a great job with the voice acting, so fear not!

Go into these expecting ridiculous, pointless humor and you'll be very, very pleased. This is the best anime I have seen in a long time and next to Ranma 1/2 and a few other classics, one of the few sets I would consider owning. Good stuff! Enjoy!!"
Hilarious anime, very rewatchable, and cheap to boot!

"I love box sets that cost almost as much as about two individual DVDs. This is a steal for an amazing series.

Now, this show is pure comedy. You will not find intricate plots or heart-felt relationships, but you WILL laugh. For example, should the main character tell his classmates that one of them is actually a robot? But wait, maybe they're right. Maybe he ISN'T a robot and just looks funny. Then everyone would think he's a jerk for calling the weird looking kid a robot. Awesome, cerebral comedy with commentary on how PC we can be sometimes. Plus, as a n added value, this anime has a much higher re-watchability factor than a show like, say, Escaflowne. With no true plot you can watch them again and again the way you might Seinfeld or Friends."
Crowmartie High School

"Crowmartie is hilarious. I wish there were more anime as offbeat, quirky, abstract brand of comedy as this. I loved Excell Saga when it came out but in the years since, there has been few and far between with Crowmartie's flavor. This definately satisfied that need."
