Movie Reviews

Superior, but cavity inducing!
Scott Martin Gavin | Klamath Falls, Oregon United States | 09/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I bought my first Pioneer (Geneon) product back when Pioneer laser discs were nearly the only way to find anime translated into English. Tenchi Muyo was the anime that had me hooked. I was saddened but not surprised when Geneon left the US market, because none of its later offerings, including later Tenchi series, were as good a Pioneer's first offering. I was very pleased to discover Kamichu as one of Geneon's final offerings, and this turned out to be the best anime series the company ever offered. No fights. No giant robots. No sex. No gore. No whacky space aliens. Just three Japanese junior high girls who try to cope when one of them announces that she, inexplicably, has become a god in the Shinto sense. This is a very sweet story, so sweet it may induce cavities or a diabetic coma. The animation is among the best cell animation I have ever seen, with no shortcuts taken, and no mismatching computer animation jammed in here and there. The voice acting, on both the Japanese and English tracks are among the best i have ever heard, and is age appropriate to the characters. If you want family-friendly anime, or a anime series to introduce your lady friend to your anime hobby, this may be the series for you. If all of Pioneer - Geneon's offerings had been the quality of Kamichu, the company might not have found it necessary to leave the U.S. Market. Short, Sweet, and among the very best!"

"Saw this last year on Youtube. Animation is very well done,
especially the accurate landscape shots. This a a very cute
slice of life anime with inventive fantasy elements woven in. Yurie's school life is complicated by her two girlfriends attempts to benefit from her new godly status, and Yurie's tentative romantic pursuit of a clueless male
classmate whose first love is calligraphy. A very sweet and
original anime, highly recommended for those tired of mechas, swordfights, and ecchi stuff.

"If you are a fan of Miyazaki's work you will love this anime. I found it hard to believe it wasn't a work of Miyazaki. It is beautifuly animated, with charming characters and music."
Great Show

"Though it feels like a ton of filler stories of the life of a middle-school god, Kamichu is really a bunch of insights into the life of a wonderfully socially-awkward girl. My wife and I have both enjoyed watching this show, and the odd humor that exists both in front of and behind the camera."
