    AZUMANGA DAIOH: FESTIVALS (VOLUME 2) (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall

    straightforward, subtle, and extremely cute."

    ESSENTIAL ANIME COLLECTION: NEW CUTEY HONEY (reviewed by Sandra Dozier,
    overall score 75/100):
    "The fan service may be blatant and shameless, but at least it doesn't
    try to pass itself off as all part of the regular doings and completely
    essential to the plot."

    KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC: BATTLE OF THE BRONZE NIGHTS (VOLUME 1) (reviewed
    by David Gutierrez, overall score 24/100):
    "This is one of the worst DVD releases I've ever seen. I just can't
    follow a dragon knight in legwarmers and long green hair."

    KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC: THE FIGHT FOR THE GOLD CLOTH (VOLUME 2) (reviewed
    by David Gutierrez, overall score 31/100):
    "The good thing is this batch of episodes actually improved. Much like
    the kid who failed one semester of classes with a ten, then failed the
    next with a fifteen, you can call it an improvement... but it's still
    a failure."

    KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC: OUT OF THE ARENA (VOLUME 3) (reviewed by David
    Gutierrez, overall score 21/100):
    " I often found myself hoping the episodes would quickly end and that
    the stories would reach some resolution."

    KNIGHTS OF THE ZODIAC: THE FIRE OF THE PHOENIX (VOLUME 4) (reviewed by
    David Gutierrez, overall score 20/100):
    "It just doesn't feel like this series is going to wrap up
    anytime soon."

    MASTER KEATON: LIFE AND DEATH (VOLUME 7) (reviewed by Sandra Dozier,
    overall score 95/100):
    "Master Keaton is what I wish most dramatic live-action TV shows
    would be."

    NINJA RESURRECTION (reviewed by Rob Lineberger, overall score 43/100):
    "Anime is a cerebral experience that relies on processing strange and
    often abstract imagery to glean meaning. Even the best anime can put you
    in a paradoxical 'interested stupor.' When we have no anchor to make us
    care, that interested stupor becomes a plain old stupor. Ninja
    Resurrection did have interesting religious and political themes along
    with a handful of gory action scenes, but the rest is overblown."

    R.O.D. THE TV: THE PAPER SISTERS (VOLUME 1) (reviewed by Mike Pinsky,
    overall score 88/100):
    "It is always hard to tell how a series like this is going to pay off,
    but judging from these first chapters, R.O.D. The TV is what the
    publishing trade would call a page-turner."

    SAIYUKI: TROUBLE IN PARADISE (VOLUME 10) (reviewed by Sandra Dozier,
    overall score 85/100):
    "I tend to favor anime that is what most people consider a little
    'fluffy' in content but has much heart at its core. I also enjoy
    ultraviolent anime with hard-boiled characters who have no fear or
    mercy. It's the in-between stuff I can't quite grok."

    SUPER GALS: A GAL'S HEART NEVER STOPS! (reviewed by Sandra Dozier,
    overall score 92/100):
    "It's better for your mood than NoDoze with a Jolt cola chaser, and just
    about as addictive."
