Akira
Link: Akira
Akira Perhaps the greatest anime ever made. Stunning animation, great story and powerful music make this required viewing and ownership for every kind of animation fan. Akira is often credited with igniting the anime craze in America. It has been cited numerous times as an inspiration by many film makers, artists and writers. It's dark and brooding vision of the future is complete and brilliantly realized. Many of it's images - a glowing, neon-lit Tokyo; Kaneda marching towards his cycle; the cape-clad Tetsuo leering menacingly - have all become pop culture icons of animation.

This is a film that engenders strong feelings and passions. Those who view always have an opinion after watching and though there are many different interpretations one truth holds true for every viewer: it is great.

Aquarian Age: The Movie
Link: Aquarian Age: The Movie
Aquarian Age: The Movie Based on the card game created by Broccoli, the same gang that brought us Digi Charat and Galaxy Angel Z, Aquarian Age: The Movie is the Cliffs Notes version of the story. Unlike the previously released Aquarian Age: Sign for Evolution, there is little attempt at character development or dramatic tension. The purpose here is to introduce new game features and encourage fans to buy the new cards.

Madhouse's animation, for the most part, is clean and crisp but there are moments of disappointment as somewhat cheesy 3-D elements make their way onscreen. The fight sequences are very well-done and luckily for us, the viewers, there is no shortage of them. Music and performance fall solidly in the middle of the pack.

Overall, for 60 minutes, most viewers will be satisfied. Fans looking for Ghost In The Shell or Paranoia Agent level work will be disappointed while Aquarian Age gamers will be drawn into an anime they are sure to enjoy.

Armitage The Third Polymatrix
Link: Armitage The Third Polymatrix
Armitage The Third Polymatrix A sci-fi/action story that nearly replicates Blade Runner on Mars, Armitage the Third is a middling quality film. The character designs are somewhat schizophrenic, even given the story's point that the robot's are suppose to be cute and childlike. It's just that the line quality of the men is awkward and not consistent. The background work is decent, though it does seem like much of it has been lifted from other cyberpunk films. The design work is also solid.

What makes Armitage the Thrid unusual is the fact that name Hollywood stars, such as Elizabeth Berkley and Kiefer Sutherland, provide the Engish voices for the two leads (Armitage and Ross, respectively) and the sound engineering (at least on the DVD) is excellent.

Please note that Armitage the Third Polymatrix: The movie is a compilation of previously released material.

Baoh
Link: Baoh
Baoh Baoh, faithfully adapted from the manga of the same name, is a video of intense action and a intriguing story. Like a fire, it starts quickly, burns fiercly and is over too soon, leaving a lasting impression. It is a video that real anime fans should see.

Battle Angel
Link: Battle Angel
Battle Angel Based on the first volume of the acclaimed Battle Angel Alita manga by Yukito Kishiro, this anime is a well-done adaptation. The animation is clean and well colored and the character designs are very faithful to Kishiro's drawings. The names have been changed though, so those who have read the manga may be a bit disoriented. It is strongly encourage anyone who watches this tape to acquire the manga. It not only tells the story told in this video in more depth, but continues with the much larger adventure of Gally/Alita with some of the best art in all of manga.

Generator Gawl
Link: Generator Gawl
Generator Gawl Generator Gawl could be called the Terminator 2: The Animation, thanks to their similar story lines, but Gawl has much more going for it besides cool enemies and tons of action.

The story is very carefully crafted and the direction is smart enough to respect the intent of the creators by revealing their secrets at just the right moment. The authors could be faulted for adding a generic teenage girl (Masami), but she is harmless and serves as a great foil for Gawl.The atmosphere of the show is well defined though somewhat trite with lots of secret labs and plenty of silent, lab-coated nasties lurking around but the monsters are very cool and the battle sequences are excellent.

If there is any one thing that holds Gawl back from a higher rating it is that the series drags. This is most likely due to the fact that the ending is such a doozy that the producers didn't want to give it away yet they were still required to deliver a full season of 12 episodes.

Overall, Generator Gawl is a fun action-adventure, with heavy emphasis on action.

Infinite Ryvius
Link: Infinite Ryvius
Infinite Ryvius In the distant future, a massive solar flare has decimated Earth's population and wrapped the planet in a thick space-borne fog. But, this has not deterred humans from moving out into space. Many teenagers and young adults choose to train for a new life in space and that begins on the space station known as Liebel Delta. It is here that 487 children of all ages find themselves challenged to mature fast after an accident strands them in space.

This series draws very opinionated results from its viewers. They either love the hard science/teen angst story or despise it. The characters are well defined and each seems to have a hidden flaw or dark secret waiting to be revealed. The attention to space science is strong, though this world is not as sharply and thoroughly imagined as the universe of Crest of the Stars/Banner of the Stars. It is a slow building story but well worth the ride.

Mobile Suit Gundam Wing
Link: Mobile Suit Gundam Wing
Mobile Suit Gundam Wing The Gundam series is one of the oldest and most revered franchises in all of Anime. Known for its complex stories, highly developed characters, and exacting detail, it is a fully fleshed out universe with a cult following.

But in the mid-90's, the franchise found itself in a precarious position arising from competition and an aging storyline that was not attracting new, younger viewers. The solution was to create a new story within the Gundam universe and populate it with young heroes to which the younger target audience would relate. The result was Mobile Suit Gundam Wing and it was, and remains, a smash hit.

The five young men who form the core of this yarn are at once complex and appealing. Each has reason to fight but why is revealed tantalizingly slowly through out the engaging story. The other characters: Relena Peacecraft, the heroine of Gundam Wing; her brother, and the charismatic Trieze Khushrenada all add to the broth.

The animation is fluid and the fight scenes are well paced. The music is just perfect, adding to the atmosphere and giving it an "epic" feel. Even the American dubbed voices seem ideally matched to their characters. The only thing that keeps this from being a perfect series is the tendency towards too much explanation of plot elements and motivations.This is a fantastic series that will have fans and newcomers alike glued to their seats and hungrily awaiting the next episode.

Neon Genesis Evangelion
Link: Neon Genesis Evangelion
Neon Genesis Evangelion "You must confront your father; You must confront yourself." These words that Misato says to Shinji midway through the first episode of Neon Genesis Evangelion sum up quite brilliantly what this amazing anime is about.

Neon Genesis Evangelion is credited with resurrecting anime in Japan and being one the greatest stimulators of anime interest in America. It one of those rare events where talent, technique, and skill blend to create something wholly new. All aspects of Neon Genesis Evangelion are superior. The animation is fluid and jaw-dropping gorgeous. The music is pitch perfect and the performances of both the Japanese and American voice actors are brilliant.

Once you start down the road that is Neon Genesis Evangelion, unplug the phone, kiss the wife or girlfriend goodbye, and call in sick to work because you won't want to stop till the last frame of the final episode.A must see for any anime, action, or Sci-Fi fan.

Outlaw Star
Link: Outlaw Star
Outlaw Star An action-filled series set in the future on the frontier of outer space, Outlaw Star is a fun and entertaining anime. Stuffed full of comedy, action, exciting stories and memorable characters, Outlaw Star builds a wonderful yarn out of an original premise.

The animation is smooth and cleanly drawn. Much of the background and mecha design reminds me of Wings of Honnemise or Ghost in the Shell, which is good considering this is a series and not a movie. The American voice actors do a great job of making the characters real. Outlaw Star is a great series that will entertain fans of Cowboy Bebop, Bubblegum Crisis 2040 or Tenchi Muyo.

Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko
Link: Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko
Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko is a diamond in the rough. It has fun, well-crafted characters and nice balance of anime action with a touch of self-aware humor.This particular outing of Starship Girl suffers from the environment in which it was created. The mid to late '90s was glutted with numerous "girl team" animes (Battle Athletes and Metal Fighter Miku spring to mind) and Yohko draws on those same themes.

After the release of the OAV series, Yamamoto Yohko was retooled and re-released as a series and became a big hit. Maybe if we are all good and don't tease our little sisters, Right Stuf or another producer might bless us with that series.

But back to the Yohko we have at hand. The animation is strong (upper middle of the pack) and the concept, though well-worn, is invigorated by the sassy attitude of Yohko herself. All in all, Starship Girl Yamamoto Yohko will leave you happy that you spent the time watching it.

Wicked City
Link: Wicked City
Wicked City Wicked City is a chilling creep-fest of a movie guaranteed to give you nightmares for weeks and to send you racing out to force all of your friends to watch it. It is that good.

Even though the style of the animation dates it to early 90s origins, Wicked City is as enjoyable and modern as any live action horror flick coming out of Hollywood today. An excellent story, superb direction and engaging characters create a world that draws the viewer in and makes them forget about time, walking the dog or calling Aunt Mildred. In fact, the only thing that they will worry about is that tapping sound from the other room or did that shadow in the corner just move?

The excellent quality of Urban Vision's DVD should also commended. Often with older movies, the DVDs appear to be nothing more than transfers of the existing VHS stock and the quality is poor. Not only is the visual quality high, but Urban Vision even went to the trouble of creating a Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound track for the English language track. It is rich and perfect for this film. The Japanese language track is only 2 channels but preserves the original atmosphere well.If you or someone you know are the sort who like to dim the lights, pop a big bowl or popcorn and then get the !@#$ scared out of you, then this is your film.
