    ED, EDD 'N' EDDY: SEASON 1, VOLUME 1 (reviewed by Dennis Prince, overall
    score 83/100):
    "Instead, this disc offers up only six Ed-ventures, picked seemingly
    randomly from Season One and Season Two (note the original episode
    numbers and air dates in the previous synopses). That's just weird, and
    I have to think it comes as a disappointment to the die-hard Ed fans
    who'd probably like to see a complete Season One release. What dork came
    up with this idea?"

    THE FLINTSTONES: SEASON THREE (reviewed by Paul Corupe, overall
    score 88/100):
    "The birth of Wilma and Fred's baby, Pebbles, in 'Dress Rehearsal'
    became a much hyped television event in 1962, a crafty move that not
    only guaranteed a big audience for the blessed event, but also
    helped break The Flintstones a little further away from just an
    animated knock-off of The Honeymooners to become a cultural
    phenomenon in its own right."

    GHOST IN THE SHELL: STAND ALONE COMPLEX (VOLUME 5) (reviewed by Rob
    Lineberger, overall score 95/100):
    "Stand Alone Complex may have plateaued, but if you stand on top of that
    plateau you'll be peering down from high above most anime titles."

    KAIJU BIG BATTEL: SHOCKING TRUTH (reviewed by Bill Gibron, overall
    score 92/100):
    "Though Kaiju creators Rand and David Borden may not fully acknowledge
    their agenda -- this is, after all, more or less wrestling taken to
    terrific and tacky extremes -- they have hit upon a sensationally
    satiric idea, the melding of two dumb bumpkin ideas into a magical
    meditation on the fringes of fun."

    KOI KAZE: THE REUNION (VOLUME 1) (reviewed by Joel Pearce, overall
    score 88/100):
    "Koi Kaze starts with the odds stacked high against it. For one thing,
    it's a love story between a 27-year-old man and a 15-year-old girl. And
    she's his sister. How could such a relationship be humanized? Could it
    be anything except one of those tacky anime shows featuring an ordinary
    guy surrounded by cute fan service temptation?"

    LUNAR LEGEND TSUKIHIME: NOCTURNAL FATE (VOLUME 3) (reviewed by Dan
    Mancini, overall score 77/100):
    "Moments of action and violence are too rare (and too poorly executed)
    to bring the excitement necessary to balance out the melodrama and give
    the story a sense of momentum. It's too bad, because the series offers a
    unique and richly detailed vampire mythos, along with a wealth of
    characters whose lives are entwined in the intricate manner that lends
    the best soap operas their appeal."

    STAR WARS: A MUSICAL JOURNEY (reviewed by Erick Harper, overall
    score 80/100):
    "The visuals are nice, but the real star here is John Williams, whose
    compositions often transcend and elevate the more mundane happenings on-
    screen. It is amazing how well much of the Star Wars cycle works as
    silent film accompanied by Williams's rousing score."

    TEEN TITANS: SWITCHED (reviewed by Maurice Cobbs, overall score 87/100):
    "The wild elements are grounded in solid stories featuring well-
    developed characters and clever writing: A kids' show this may be, but
    the creators feel no need to talk down to their intended audience."

    TRANSFORMERS ENERGON: SHOCKBLAST UNLEASHED (reviewed by Paul Corupe,
    overall score 68/100):
    "Pinballing from incredibly dense scenes of plot advancement to chaotic
    laser battles, this show requires a unique mix of Attention Deficit
    Disorder and intense concentration to sort out exactly what is
    happening."
