"I have a great love for Cowboy Bebop, so if you hated that series, then you probably won't value what I have to say. That caveat aside, I really enjoyed the Wild Arms series. I know, I know. It was based on a video game. My answer. Big deal. It was cheap. So I gave it a try, and boy was I surprised. I found my self staying up late nights going episode to episode, compelled to find out what the characters were up to. The producers had a whole world to build on from the games, and they used it as a setting to place a crew not unlike the one from Bebop. A big nuturing guy, a wise-cracking bad-boy, a seductive not-so-honest gal, and her lovable girl side-kick. They even had cute animals as characters. It was great. Good music, fun characters, compelling story, nice art, sweet action, even a bit of romance. What else do you want?"
A must have for wildarm fans

"I brought this anime for my husband as a present, we have played every wild arms game released and to this day are big fans of them. As an anime on its own it would be good, but as an amine based on a game I thought it worked really well, the only thing I would have changed is I would have called the mouse Hanpan after the game.
Story wise, yes it is fairly simplistic, but nice to curl up to after a long tiring day, you don't really need to think about what you're seeing you can just sit back and enjoy. Each episode is a small story in its own right, but still follows the main story line (almost like each episode is a side quest along the way) and as always some a better than others.
It will not be to everyone's taste, but personally, both me and by husband enjoyed it.
