5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Season., June 27 2004
Rurouni Kenshin is one of the greatest anime show's out there and the original creator Nobuhiro Watsuki is probebly working on the Jinchu Arc which is only on the manga version. Unlike the first season the Tokyo arc which was the intrudctory story, Legend of Kyoto is much darker and is also the real story where Kenshin has to deal with his past and make it anew. This is the best season and it has everything you would ever want in an anime show and I highly recommend this to anybody with an intrest of Japanese animation because this is just the greatest.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want this!, June 25 2004
I know that family guy is funny but they said that season 3 is the funniest so far and because of that I can't wait to get this once I get enough money so I will give this a real review later in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars FUNNY times 2., June 25 2004
This is one of the funniest show's that was ever shown on T.V, more clearer Adult Swim and also originally FOX. This whole series is about a big fat guy named Peter Griffin and his family he has a sexy wife, one unsatisfied daughter, one huge son with an intrest in art, a killing baby son, and a smart talking dog. This box set has more than 20 episodes which take up season's 1 and 2. Funnier then the simpsons and futarama, and I do not suspect that this is for children unless they know anything about puberty or at least went threw it. With it's unlimited line of humor this is by far the funniest series/show's on earth. If you can't get enough of this show there is also season 3 thats out right now. And also heard that season 4 is coming out in the year 2005 so wait until then to see some new episodes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gran Turismo anime., June 22 2004
Intial D is ono the weirdiest anime that tokyopop ever released in 2003. Its about a teenager named Takane, he deleivers tofu around his city and he own's a Toyota Trueno. Tak mastered the akina downhill track which is one of the the famous trcks in tokyo. It really reminds you of Gran Turismo and makes you wanna learn how to drift with a car in the game. The races in this anime is in 3D so some times it is weird and a lot of getting used but anyway get this anyway if you like anime or intrested in racing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spirit Detective, June 20 2004
Yu Yu Hakusho is a great series with a lot of cool character's such as Yusuke, Kuwabara, Heiei, Korama and a bunch more. This whole thing is about a 15 year old boy named Yusuke Urameshi who is wanted by a bunch of gangs around his neighborhood, he lives with his mom and skips school most of the time. Later he gets hit by a car and is dead but then his spirit is still alive and is met up by a girl named Botan and is taken into what is called the Spirit World. He has to go threw many tasks to come back alive, lucky he accompishes that and everything is back to normal but then Lord Koenma ruler of the spirit world shows up and gives Yuske a message he has to ba a spirit detective and that's when his adventure starts and meet's a bunch of new allies. This is a great sefries you should get this or you could the manga version which is also on shonen jump weekly.

5.0 out of 5 stars GUNDAM., June 19 2004
This is the original gundam that is worth the money I watch the whole thing and this is the real deal. Get this instead of the series with I don't know 4 or 5 episodes in it because it is better like this even though it is 2hour in each and you might get bored some of the time but good. This is one of the original mech series if you really like robotic anime get gundam or robotech/macross plus because those are great anime. This is better then some of the other gundam series like gundam wing or g gundam,THEY REALLY SUCK. Get these which I am gonna list.

Gundam 0080 war in the pocket
Gundam 0083 Stardust Memory

If you like this you will like these as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars The weird season., June 16 2004
I love rurouni kenshin I own the ova's I have the motion picture and I also have the wandering samurai premium box. I am saving up my money for the legend of kyoto premium box I might buy it next month. I know people been disin this season because the story was weird or it was just filler episodes but I don't care about them because I know the series have never let me down and this season doesn't make a different. Once I get the Legend of Kyoto premium box at suncoast later, I will get this premium box right after, altough this season is a bit confusing and weird I will get this anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good series., June 15 2004
This review is from: Inu Yasha: V.1 Down the Well (DVD)
I like Inuyasha a whole lot and I have been watching the series on adult swim on cartoon network. It all takes place in a fuedual era of japan and a high school girl named Kagome who is also a reincarnation of a preistess was pulled into an old well. Kagome has an acient jewel in her body and thats how a teleport of some sort opens when a demon pulls her in. Later on Kagome meet's a Half demon named Inuyasha which was put into a long sleep and the only way to wake him up is to pull the arrow out. I am not going to tell a whole summary but the series is really great it is a combination of romance, action, and comedy and I love it completly. But the only reason I gave four stars instead of five is because there are only three episodes in each DVD, and unless you are hella reach you better just stick to watchin it on adult swim more specific cartoon network check this anime series out it is really good...........

5.0 out of 5 stars Bit Confusing?, June 15 2004
I first have to say Neon Genisis Evangelion is one of the most complex anime ever in my life and End of Evanglion is no different. I have seen both the whole t.v series and the death and rebirth DVD but end of evangelion is pretty more straight forward with the story. It starts of with Shinji right next to Asuka which is in some kind of coma. I am not going to spoil anything but there is a lot adult content. A scene in this movie when Asuka's eva UNIT 02 was teared apart it was just completly sickining especially when Asuka feel's every little pain that deals with the eva. What I am really trying to say is that this movie is disturbing and may make you dizzy in some parts and this is also a bit confusing soooooo.. I suggest you get the other one "Death and Rebirth" before you get this. This is a great movie but I don't really reccomend very much only get this if you are 13 or older because this anime DVD is really messed up but good in a anime collection.
P.S. If you really want this get it here on because it is cheaper.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Story., June 14 2004
The movie was pretty good, I mean Eminem is a good actor in this film. The story was alright A white rapper in Detroit tryin to make a career for being a good rapper. In the beggining of the movie Eminem is in a rap battle but then get's nervese. Although this movie is deffinatly a rated R film, and I am not talking about the bad words and the alchohal/drug use neither there is some scenes that have hardcore sex. It doesn't show anything but It is better to stay safe. but its is good.
