Movie Reviews

Without a doubt a fantastic story
Gary Pechkurow | Bedford, OH United States | 06/15/2002

"I already seen the whole series on video tape.And I watched so much that I had to get it on DVD, because the tapes were getting worn. When I first saw it, it grabbed my attention as to how adorable Lime was. And as the other marionettes Cherry and Bloodberry showed up the story got only more interesting and fun. I am in my twenties I must admit and since I was a kid I watched alot of the old animes, but when I saw this one I was thrust back into the whole anime scene. It is one of those stories that hasn't been told like any other, it has comedy and heart-break and alot of suspense, with twists of emotion with the characters, that make you feel like you were right there with them, and wish that you could be a part of it. Not many stories I see where I feel sorry for the villians as much as the heroes, but as the story goes on you come to like all the characters, even the very one minded and irreversibly annoying Mitsurugi Hanagata. if you are a anime fan and have not seen this let alone heard of it you must give this one a shot, I still remember the first time I saw it and I always smile when I watch it since. This has to be one of the best and most unique stories ever told, please don't hesitate to get it. The only thing that I was worried about was that the next set of stories wouldn't match up to the first season. But I was wrong, but that is another review for another time. I really hope that this helped you, and I apologize that I didn't go into more detail but when you get it ( yes I am confident with that ) you will be glad that I didn't, and didn't ruin all the suspense for you. This is definately one for the ages."
Hehe funny

"I heard really good stuff about this series and I had wanted to purchase it for a long time. I ended up having really high expectations for it, aghhh I tried so hard not to do that, you're just asking to be dissapointed. Lucky for me, I was not let down. Man, this show is hilarious. The first couple episodes, I admit, started out kinda lame. I didn't really like the first marionette he found, Lime. By the third episode tho' I was just like "I LUUUUUV this series". The other robot girls he finds are way cooler than the first and the main character is actually pretty cool himself. That's right, unlike every other anime I can think of where dorky guy that isn't great with girls, is suddenly surrounded by ones that adore him, this guy actually seems worthy of them. He's drawn pretty cute and doesn't have a total doormat personality (tho' he does stand by the typical indecisiveness with his girls, the "i love them all" theory).
I also like his english dubbed voice. Yuck, It sounds like a woman is doing his voice in the japanese version, darn it and I'm just too lazy to find out if it is or not for sure. But anyway it sounds like it and I can't picture him being manly when he sounds so feminine. So that's why I like the dub, it's pretty good. The japanese is awesome too tho', the voice actresses doing Lime and Cherry are really admirable. So anyway, it takes a couple episodes to get into but this is a great series. All right!, and it come with nine episodes, that's more than enough to get hooked. I greatly recommmend everyone give this show a try. My only regret is now I gotta scrounge up another 90 bucks so I can buy the last two collections ^.^"

"Saber Marionette is definetely one of the best anime out there, if not the best. Loveable Lime, Cherry, and Bloodberry really bring out anime, not to mention Otaru! Anyway, to anyone, I really recommend you buy this fantastic anime! I love you Otaru!"
One of the first anime series I collected...

"This was one of the first and, frankly, still one of the best. Tenchi Muyo, Hellsing, Trigun, Love Hina and the rest are good. But Lime, Cherry and Bloodberry was my first love among the anime series. The extras with the music videos, hidden easter egg with the interviews, the humor and sometimes touching scenes made the episodes in this set of discs and the other two collections PERFECT. The interaction between the characters and the complex plot, with the stand alone episodes, make it worth the price and open the door to the other series of the Saber Marionette universe. While the other stories set in the same setting are fun, this is the superior of them all. And I happen to be a fan of Tiger! Hubba-hubba!"
