Movie Reviews

Beautiful animation...debatable plot, it can grow on you.
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Fencer of Minerva:The Emergence is beautifully done........ artistically. The animation is lovely, very classic, and the music fitting to the plot. There are some strong characters even if not all of them are developed. The plot is debatable, you really have to be into D/S and S/M to truly understand and like this movie, otherwise you have to watch with an open mind. Prince Sho is driven from his homeland, his father killed, his kingdom taken away in an act of a "military coup". Princess Diana is the princess of the kingdom that once belonged to Prince Sho. She and Sho used to be playmates and she has never forgotten her one true love. In a twist of fate Prince Sho becomes a "peasant" and Diana becomes a Princess, but in that same twist of fate Princess Diana finds herself in a reversal of fortune. When an engagement is forced upon Princess Diana by her father, to the sadistic Prince Doonan she runs away, only to find herself captured by slave traders. Princess Diana is reduced to becoming a sex slave and must serve her masters whims. It is at this point that the story becomes embibed with D/S and S/M. I must admit that the woman forced to be sex slaves and their eventual liking for it was a bit much for me. The love story is eventually overwhelmed by the master slave relationship and heavy bondage theme. If you are not offended by such matters then this is a fine piece of anime. Because of Nudity and violence it is not suitable for children. This is a classic example of Japanese Anime, with some unnessesary sex and heavy B/D/S/S/M."
"Misguided in Minerva"

"With a title called "Fencer of Minerva", would you expect at least a few quality sword fight scenes? Yes! Would you also expect there to be a splash of humour that is characteristic of most anime? Probably. Did "Fencer Of Minerva" prvode anything worth watching? Maybe if you like hentai.To be completely honest, I feel this is the first anime that wasted my time, because I didn't feel entertained while watching it. I am a huge fan of anime like "Cowboy Bebop", "Martian Successor Nadesico" and "Trigun". Even with the less popular "Lost Universe" series, I was at least able to laugh with it.The one thing that I will NOT take away from this DVD title is the quality of the animation that is presented. Clean from beginning to end, and perfect quality too. Great transfer, and props go to Central Park Media for it.No matter how good the video and audio are, I honestly don't think this is worthy in any anime collection. That is, unless it's a hentai collection.Reccommended For Ages 16+"
Not Recomended for Children

"This aname is not recomended for children. The quality of the animation is first rate from the beginning to the end. The story line from beginning to end also involves adult situations as to bondage, submission, explicit sex (not hardcore), and for the adult viewer I would recommend that they consider this movie. If you are looking for lots of sword play look elsewhere, the story line has a different intrigue. I was pleased with the movie and am going to be purchashing the Tempist."

"I was loaned the subtitled version from a friend and this is some of Anime at its best. The plot and the porn you want. You'll love this! To reiterate, the _SUBTITLED_ --I will warn you, though, that the dubbed version just doesn't do justice to the original."
