    Today, DVD Verdict posted reviews of CHRONO CRUSADE: THE DEVIL TO PAY
    (VOLUME 4), GRAVION ZWEI: EYE OF THE STORM (VOLUME 1), MEZZO: SHELL TWO,
    OVERMAN KING GAINER: YAPAN'S EXODUS (VOLUME 1), SAMURAI CHAMPLOO (VOLUME
    2), and WANDABA STYLE: IDOL INVASION (VOLUME 3):


    CHRONO CRUSADE: THE DEVIL TO PAY (VOLUME 4) (reviewed by Mitchell
    Hattaway, overall score 75/100):
    "There's also an uncomfortable tonal shift in the middle episode; humor
    has always been an element of this series, but 'Prayer' contains far too
    much slapstick."

    GRAVION ZWEI: EYE OF THE STORM (VOLUME 1) (reviewed by Brett Cullum,
    overall score 82/100):
    "It's a funny, fast moving show that ultimately goes nowhere in this
    volume. Perhaps we will get a hint of plot in the next set -- but if
    this one is any indication, all we can look forward to are uplifting pop
    songs and uplifting bras, all inside a giant robot."

    MEZZO: SHELL TWO (reviewed by Bryan Byun, overall score 85/100):
    "Make no mistake, Mezzo: Shell Two is no walk in the park. It's more
    like a high-speed chase through a carnival funhouse, with a hardcore
    punk band featuring caterwauling overcaffeinated preteen girls providing
    the soundtrack."

    OVERMAN KING GAINER: YAPAN'S EXODUS (VOLUME 1) (reviewed by Brett
    Cullum, overall score 95/100):
    "I'd definitely recommend Overman King Gainer Exodus 1 as an example of
    why I enjoy anime. It's a science fiction story that could never be told
    with live action, and it's so artfully done you often forget you are
    watching a cartoon."

    SAMURAI CHAMPLOO (VOLUME 2) (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall
    score 88/100):
    "It's like Takashi Miike making a Zatoichi movie, only animated and
    injected with a hip-hop score."

    WANDABA STYLE: IDOL INVASION (VOLUME 3) (reviewed by Brett Cullum,
    overall score 92/100):
    "I can't explain my fondness for this series, but it's cute, quirky, and
    a lot of fun. Action anime fans are going to want to hurl, but Wandaba
    Style has some great elements in it that make it a fun ride."
