Movie Reviews

Don't watch for the plot.
J.D. McKenna | Silicon Valley, CA | 05/01/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I say that because to be honest, it's a cliche, by the numbers good vs evil story and there's holes you can drive a Mack Truck through. The makers tried very hard to make her an anti hero and they only sort of suceeded.

That said, watch it because Saki kicks ass and uses a yo-yo for a weapon. There are some wonderful fight scenes and she uses the yo-yo to great effect. Watch it for those. Heck, make a drinking game out of it.

I should also add that in the end, when she starts tearing up the bad guy's organization single handed, is when the animation comes into it's own."
Sukeban Deka comes alive!

"If you know anything at all about Japanese cult movies, you probably know about the SUKEBAN DEKA movies and TV series, which were derived from a manga back from 1972. The anime goes back to the source and brings it kicking and screaming into the Nineties. It's violent, funny, bizarre, and extremely enjoyable in many different ways. A good introduction to anime, actually!"
This is really good

"Intersting story, it has a lot of action and good characters especially Saki the main character. drawn well. She becomes a cop and there's more to it than that. See it for yourself."

"Ok the title makes no sense, but I suck at titles anyway. Alright Sukeban Deka is perhaps one of the best animes you'll ever see. It has all the things you'd love like action, comedy, love, good vs evil, and all that. I mean this movie is so full of emotion that it's just awesome and at times all the wacked out stunts proved to be great like the stuff you used to see in old Kung Fu, Western, and Samurai movies except it takes place in a high school, which is just so cool. Also the characters are just superb in the quality of who they are, and this goes for both good and bad guys. Also one of the major thing is that the fight scenes and action are just fantastic and hilarious at the same time for some of them. This movie has a lot to offer the viewer so this a classic that you have to see.

Hope this review was helpful."
