ANIME ESSENTIALS: SLAYERS THE MOTION PICTURE (reviewed by Sandra Dozier,
overall score 87/100):
"I never miss a chance to see Lina and Naga together. Even when the
story isn't so hot, this dynamic duo certainly is. The way they play off
each other is priceless, and I love the formula: Start off on opposite
sides, end up working together, hilarity ensues."

CHRONO CRUSADE: A PLAGUE OF DEMONS (VOLUME 1) (reviewed by Mitchell
Hattaway, overall score 80/100):
"Chrono Crusade, both the anime and the original manga, was quite
successful in Japan. Fans here in the states who have been awaiting its
release should, technical quibbles aside, be quite pleased with this
initial offering, as should anyone who just wants to see a cute cartoon
chick blow stuff up."

COOL IT, BABY / MINI-SKIRT LOVE / VENUS IN FURS (reviewed by Bill
Gibron, overall score 85/100):
"Cool It, Baby / Mini-Skirt Love / Venus in Furs are three of the
choicest chunks of exploitation ever to misrepresent their purpose.
Whoever named these movies should be shot. The terrible titles barely do
justice to the juiciness found inside."

DRAGON HALF (reviewed by Mitchell Hattaway, overall score 30/100):
"Dragon Half is easily the worst anime I've ever seen. Nothing else even
comes close. I could hardly believe my eyes. I haven't seen such a
series of disasters since Gene Hackman tried to sink California in
Superman. It's supposed to be madcap and manic, but it's really just
noisy and shrill."

HAPPY LESSON: MAMA MIA (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score
39/100):
"This rampant creativity is just one reason why anime such as Happy
Lesson: Mama Mia, an original animation video (OAV), is so
disappointing. It is shrill, it is frantic, and dare I say -- it is
crap. Anime like this not only supports the argument of anime mockers,
it jumps up and urinates a stream of lighter fluid into the fire. Happy
Lesson: Mama Mia makes it hard to defend our beloved genre."

HULLABALOO OVER GEORGIE AND BONNIE'S PICTURES (reviewed by Amanda
DeWees, overall score 81/100):
"For a comedy, Hullabaloo is not an overtly comic movie; its tone tends
toward the gently ironic, taking a stance of slightly wry amusement at
the different players in this game that they find so important."

IKKI TOUSEN: LEGENDARY FIGHTER (VOLUME 1) (reviewed by Mitchell
Hattaway, overall score 85/100):
"Remember the Uma Thurman/Daryl Hannah fight in Kill Bill: Volume 2?
Imagine Quentin put them in schoolgirl uniforms and shot the scene from
a low angle. Now imagine they both start losing their clothes halfway
through the fight (and don't seem to notice). See the appeal of this
series? Achieve the right tone and it's possible to make almost anything
palatable."

THE IRON-FISTED MONK (reviewed by David Johnson, overall score 82/100):
"Hey man, the audience wins, because death or graphic eye-ripping-out
awaits these suckers!"

KALEIDO STAR: WELCOME TO THE KALEIDO STAGE! (reviewed by Sandra Dozier,
overall score 90/100):
"Through challenge comes character. This is an excellent message that
anyone can benefit from -- recognize your success, make it the core of
your strength, and use it to help you overcome your failures. It's
simple and elegant, and I can't think of a more entertaining way to
hear it than through the gorgeous scenery and compelling stories of
Kaleido Star."

NEW FIST OF THE NORTH STAR: THE CURSED CITY! (VOLUME 1) (reviewed by
Mitchell Hattaway, overall score 50/100):
"I'm not really interested in watching guys with necks the size of
Christmas hams beat the crap out of each other, but if you are, this
series should be right up your alley."

PANYO, PANYO DI. GI. CHARAT: NYO! (VOLUME 1) (reviewed by Bill Gibron,
overall score 89/100):
"Like a foppish fever dream one might have after consuming too many
Pixie Sticks, or a simple Saturday morning cartoon gone psycho, Panyo.
Panyo Di. Gi. Charat is a wild, wonderful animated bonbon. Featuring
characters so sweet they will close down your pancreas, and pen and ink
factors so fresh it's like looking at actual fantasy come to life, this
is a quirky, whimsical wonder."

THEY CAME TO CORDURA (reviewed by Bill Treadway, overall score 85/100):
"They Came to Cordura is a rare type of Western, one that isn't made any
more: the thinking man's Western. "
