Movie Reviews

Marketing Sleaze
Rick deCamara | Rockwall, TX USA | 07/11/2000
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I absolutely loved this anime when I saw it, but I cannot and will not give my approval to a simple and sleazy marketing ploy. There are 4 episodes in all, each 30 minutes long. They took the path of the greedy and put 1 episode on each tape or dvd. Personally, I couldnt care less how they market tapes, but one of dvd's strongest points was media size. Even with all the whiz-bang animation and video quality (which is quite good), I dont doubt for a second they could fit all 4 episodes onto 1 disc. They coudlve made it a "flipper" or put it onto 2 discs if they felt image quality would be compromised. It just makes me sick that they would do this. Oh yeah, fyi, the music is some of the worst in the not-too-stellar history of anime music. Overall, cool story, great use of cell/cgi animation, horrible marketing, horrible music. A pass, unless its in the bargin bin."
State of the art

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This four volume series is exceptional--I like it as much as Macross Plus with the drama, the dialogue, and of course, the action and mechanical designs. Computer graphics and cell animation merge seamlessly. The characters are deep and diverse. The setting is similar to Voogies Angel and Agent Aika (or Waterworld) , while the theme of a scientist creating human-animal hybrids or mutants reminds me of The Island of Dr. Moreau. Even though each DVD is only about 30 minutes long (this last volume is longer), as long as I don't pay more than twenty dollars this collection is worth it. Cartoon Network is going to show this series Nov 6, but for best picture quality this is best enjoyed on DVD. The dubbing was done by Coastal Carolina--my favorite sound studio. This series gives not only beautiful graphics and glorious explosions, but asks the nature of humankind's tendency for conflict and violence."
Better then expected.

"While my expectations were not very high while viewing this anime it really grows on you. The characters are original and the story is one of a kind. However this movie may not be suitable for some kids, there is some animated nudity ( on mermaid-like creatures) and contains violence/gore. As for the animation there is quite a bit of CGI mixed in with the animation( which is good by the way), sometimes the blending of the two does not flow seamlessly but it isn't hard to forgive given the visuals. This movie also has a lot of jazz music during the action sequences, sometimes it sounds out of place but it still works for the film.Other then that there are no reasons not to give it a shot."
Fantastic, but too short!

"Because of its extensive use of CGI, I had low expectations of this title. Boy, was I surprised! This is pure eye candy. I find most CGI anime released lately to be visually repugnant, but the CGI is extremely well done here and it melds with the cel animation flawlessly. My only gripe is the running time. Only one 30 minute episode on each DVD! I never buy such short videos, but Blue Sub No. 6 came so highly recommended that I decided to take a chance, and I'm glad I did."
