    ALL PURPOSE CULTURAL CAT GIRL NUKU NUKU TV: LIFE ON THE STREETS (VOLUME
    3) (reviewed by David Gutierrez, overall score 50/100):
    "In this volume, Nuku Nuku takes a slight detour from its wacky zaniness
    and dips its toe into the sappy sentimentality pool."

    ALL PURPOSE CULTURAL CAT GIRL NUKU NUKU TV: NINE LIVES (VOLUME 4)
    (reviewed by David Gutierrez, overall score 45/100):
    "Mind numbing and dull, this series could have ended on a high note.
    Instead it opted for cheap laughs and overplayed slapstick."

    BAKI THE GRAPPLER: WARRIOR REBORN (VOLUME 1) (reviewed by Mitchell
    Hattaway, overall score 50/100):
    "Given that the series exists primarily as an excuse to stage fight
    scenes, you'd think the action sequences would be more accomplished than
    what is presented here."

    DAPHNE IN THE BRILLIANT BLUE: REUNION (VOLUME 2) (reviewed by Mitchell
    Hattaway, overall score 82/100):
    "You get Maia puking in the cockpit of the hovercraft she's testing,
    Rena seductively sticking her foot in Detective Yagi's crotch, a
    startled quarry almost peeing on himself, and Gloria and Yu beating the
    hell out of each other. It's fun for the whole family!"

    MERMAID FOREST: QUEST FOR DEATH (VOLUME 1) (reviewed by Bryan Byun,
    overall score 90/100):
    "The first volume of Mermaid Forest makes for a terrific introduction to
    the series; I can't wait to see more. This is the kind of story that you
    don't necessarily have to be a hard-core anime fan to love."

    NEW FIST OF THE NORTH STAR: WHEN A MAN CARRIES SORROW (VOLUME 3)
    (reviewed by David Gutierrez, overall score 65/100):
    "The violence quickly descends from a novel trademark to mundane to
    overdone."

    SAMURAI CHAMPLOO: VOLUME 3 (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall
    score 88/100):
    "The fighting sequences are very slick and well designed, showcasing the
    skills of the two fighters. Everything is slightly exaggerated, since
    this is animation, but it is all rooted in reality and richly influenced
    by classic samurai movies."

    STAR OCEAN EX: MAGICAL MOONLIT FLOWERS (VOLUME 3) (reviewed by Mac
    McEntire, overall score 80/100):
    "The search for the Sorcery Globe takes a back seat so Claude and
    company can join Precis on a search for a rare flower, enter a sword
    fighting contest, and save the city from a giant rampaging robotic
    gumball. That's right -- I said 'gigantic rampaging robot gumball.'"
