This series is really cute! The main characters are adorable. The plot is enjoyable. I really liked it.
The version I have is missing a disc also the box is a bit damaged. I bought it at a discount price because of this. If you want it you can contact me I am willing to refund you 2 credits after I recieve them from you. Honest! I have an account at PBS and all my transactions have been good.
A anime chizzled by angels and sent from Heaven.

"To start off I will be dividing up this review in three sections.
1)Steel Angel Kurumi [Season 1]
2)Steel Angel Kurumi [Encore]
3)Steel Angel Kurumi [Season 2]
For the season 1 let me just say that.....IT WAS AMAZEING!!! I fell in love with kurumi instantely. The way she acts and the love she has for her master. It's like watching saber marionette J all over again. The first seasons story was also a work of art, although the series only had 12 minute episodes it still was able to string together a amazeing story that just grabbed hold of me and didn't let me go until the end. With the premanition of the black wings and the mysterious "Demon Kind" race, and the whole Mark II Heart scenarios, this anime is true genious sent by the angels of heaven.
-I give Season 1, 5 out of 5
Moveing on now to the Encore dvd. The encore dvd is just a simple four episode countinuation of season one. With cute fillers and lots of fights over Nagahito, the encore is a nice cherry on top of a amazeing sundae.
-I give the Encore, 5 out of 5
Now for the bain of the set unfourchounetly. Season two was a huge disappointment to me. There was just something missing in this series and it was a good thing they only went on for 12 episodes instead of 24. The second season takes place 75 years after the first season and this dicendent of Nagahito, most likesly his great grand daughter, awakens Kurumi. The series eventually progresess and awakens the other steel angels who now have mark II Hearts as well. The whole scenario with Nako's friend's farther useing his private military to kill Kurumi and bring his daughter happiness is really stupid, although the series did make me laugh and the fact that everyone is a lesbian may have been some redeaming qualities, but over all I feel that the second season was totally uncalled for and shouldn't have aired. However, they were able to keep the orignal voices, so props to them for at least doing that.
-I give season 2, 3 out of 5
All in all the collection is a must have even if you just want the first season, which in my personel opinion is amazeing. Anyone can agree that the heart warming story between Nagahito and Kurumi is truely wonderful and is just a classic anime of a human falling in love with a machine.
-average score 4 out of 5, but since I love the first season so much, this review gets the full 5 out of 5"
The truth about angels?

"First off let me say that I've been an anime fan for a long time.Yet rarely have I seen a show that I instantaeously fell in love with.Based on the original manga by KAISHAKU,Steel Angel Kurumi is an awesome series.The characters like Kurumi,Saki,and of course Karinka(voiced by Hilary Haag.)are very well developed.Kurumis' charming childish personality,Sakis'lesbian feelings for her sister,and last but not least Karinkas' psycho "I'll down the ..... when I'm good and ready", attitude.
The animation and characters are extremely well done,and the music and the voice acting is superb.I believe It's some of ADV's best yet.As for the extras ADV offers interesting historical notes,art galleries,and even printable fortune tellers.All in all Steel Angel Kurumi is a worthwhile buy for any anime fan,especially for those of us,like myself, who enjoy a great story with a side of eye candy!"
A Gift from Heaven

"Personally, I have the collection myself and have gone through it a dozen times. Although I still don't know all the important people who played a role in bringing Steel Angel Kurumi into our lives; I still can truly say that it is a gift from heaven. It's a story for all time which contains a little bit of something for everyone: action, suspense, comedy, romance, history, and plenty of extra features. This collection contains detailed backgrounds and details on the era Steel Angel Kurumi takes place in and explains how this fiction ties in with the history of Japan in the 1900's skilfully. It also has detailed production sketches with mini-comidical explanations, and loads of other goodies. As for the series itself, it has some amazing characters and artwork you'll instantly fall in love with. Kurumi's comedic devotion to nakahito, Karinka's "kiss my a**" attitude, Saki's sweet yet "fruity" nature, nakahito's down to earth attitude, and an even more extensive amount of likable if not lovable characters. The artwork is simply amazing and gives you a feel of 1900 Japan. There's a good amount of action in the show almost portrayed in a comic book fashion; lots of hilarious lines, puns, and actions; and also other things which I'm sure will delight people. Overall Steel Angel Kurumi is a definite must have for any anime lover and even for those who are just getting into the genre. I give this instant classic 5 stars."
