Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love this series! The art is beautiful, the space battles are done in awesome computer animation, and the plot, while not original, is an excellent twist on an old topic. The characters are so cool, and one of them just got MUCH cooler!Buzam Calessa, called BC, is the second in command on the ship. She is a no-nonsense woman who takes her job very seriously. It's obvious that she has not gotten the chance to cut loose much, as evidenced by the Christmas party and a few other instances. But we have never gotten the chance to see her in any other position but directing the others. That changes in this volume. We get to see BC using her favorite weapon--a BULLWHIP. And let me tell you, she kicks major ass! ^_~I love watching this volume just to see BC using that whip against Liz's weapons! Go BC!"
Vandread Second Stage picks up from the first series

"Is it true, can Men and Women really get along?This series picks right up from the previous one. About half home, the Nirvana pick up a new girl, Misty enters in and immeditatly falls for Hibiki. Now Hibiki not only has Dita but Misty fighting for his affection. And a new crew member is born getting even Meia to show her soft side.New weapons, vandread upgrades along with plenty of character backgrounds being revealed makes the final episode worth watching. You must pick up this series if you have not yet."
Very good anime!

"This is a very good anime. I have watched all the episodes in Japanese with English subs and I liked them a lot. At first the story is a little slow, something happens on the ship and then there is a little story, then some bad guys come and they have to fight. Almost all the episodes up to 8 are like this. After 8 it becomes more exciting and there is better action. One of the reasons I like this series is because it always has something funny in it that will make you laugh. Anyone who thinks that this series is just another Gundam Wing is wrong. This anime is much better than Gundam Wing. It does have robots fighting is space, but this anime has a much better story and all the characters don't act so strange. The only thing I did not like about this anime is that it is only 13 episodes long. I really hope that they make a third stage."
A good series without the confusion

"This series remains on my top 10 list of anime titles, and rightfully so.Have you ever seen something like LAIN or EVA and you were just plain confused? I like them to an extent, but I believe if a series makes you think TOO much then it won't be as effective. This series deals with views of life and evolution, with action and comedy mixed in very effectively.This series actually has something for every kind of anime fan, even for those who are first-time anime watchers. For the mech/robot action fans this will suit your taste quite well. Some of the best mechs I've seen have come from this series and are all 3-D CG. The Gundam series doesn't even hold a candle to it. For those looking for good stories and plot, every episode is an adventure in itself. You'll laugh, cry, get angry, all in this one series. And for those who would like to poke fun at gender differences, this will perhaps be to your liking as well.Every so often an anime series comes to change the way you think about things, and this has been one of mine. It was worth every penny.Speaking of which, I better have a rundown on the DVD contents. The menus are quite good - very imaginative and eye-appealing. Extras include testless openings and original TV spots and promotions (however unfortunately not translated for those who do not speak Japanese). Pioneer takes full advantage of DVD video as the video picture is almost flawless. The only thing that I would have to complain about is the choice of English voice casting, but that can be easily avoided by switching to subtitles and the Japanese track.Strap yourselves in, Vandread's gonna take you for quite a ride!"
