Movie Reviews

Entertaining so far..
M. Randall | Allen Park, MI | 05/05/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I found this anime to be unique and entertaining. The run down of it is like this.. George Kadama comes to a small town looking to solve a 15 year old mystery. Not much is revealed other then that. He slowly gets more and more clues through out these 5 episodes but the plot moves along very slowly. At times yes that can seem boring but there is some comedy and action to help things go by. The opening and ending songs are ok.. Not the best i've heard in anime but definitley not the worst either. All in all i gave this anime 4 stars but if the story gets more interesting further on then it may even be worthy of 5 stars.. But for now the story is just too clouded to get a perfect rating."

"Ohh man, this anime rocks. I saw it before it was released in America, so I don't know how the dubs sound, but at least the opening/ending song should still be in japanese. and if anything the dvd is worth buying just to hear the soundtrack. But for the anime itself. I loved it. The anime is loosely (in some cases very loosely) based on Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo. If you're in a bit of a scramble and you're not sure what to buy, get this."
