Well, I suppose I rated this one quite good, considering that DiC destroyed
90% of it with it's bad Dub. But subtitled, this anime is quite okay. And
considering that it's the most popular Anime that ran in Japan, It has
to be good. Although in America, we have only seen the first season, and
most of the second. I don't feel much like writing up a summary, go here
and pick a site, you'll find one. Anyway, I think that this particular
Anime has gotten a bad rep due to it's dub, but I've heard that the subtitled
movies are good.
|Sailormoon SuperS: The Movie|
Duhn duh! I was right. Subtitled Sailormoon is WAY better, so THERE!
heh heh. Oh, anyways...
So there's there dream fairies, and they get corrupted, and begin stealing all of Earth's children. So children are disappearing. The Sailor Scouts are alerted when Chibi Usa becomes hypnotized and starts walking away in the middle of the night. Along with all the other children of Tokyo. So Usagi and all the rest follow her, and there's a big fight, and Chibi Usa gets taken away anyway. The Scouts find an uncorrupted fairy, Perele, and with his help, they try and save Chibi Usa. And so, That's what happens. I didn't like the story too well, but the animation was really good! And the flute music was pretty spiffy too. And hey, there's variation in the Sailors' attacks! That's new in my book.
|Shin Kidousenki Gundam Wing A.C. 195|
Most Original Character: Duo Maxwell, Trowa Barton
Theme Song: Excellent (Just Communication: by Two-Mix)
Cover art: Excellent
Recommendation: Highly Recommended
Length: 96 minutes each.
Dubbed: No, only available through fansubbers.
The story of Gundam Wing takes place in the year After Colony: 195.
A sinister organization called The Federation is out to rule just about
everyone, everywhere...even in the far reaches of space. In order to do
so, they have reached out and taken control over 5 main space colonies
sans mercy . The colonies; who left Earth in the first place seeking peace,
and to escape The Federation's rule, plotted back against them (The Fed.)
by launching Operation Meteor. Now, the responsibility of accomplishing
peace lies in 5 young male pilots' hands. They must fight in their special
mobile suits: called Gundams, against OZ and all of those who stand in
the way, to accomplish order, justice, and peace. Seem like a typical bishounen
(pretty boy) and his giant robot story to you? EEEHHH! Wrong answer! Gundam
Wing is far from a typical anime. Alongside well-done animation and interesting
characters, Gundam Wing also boasts an great plot that just draws you in
to the point where you can't get enough! I should know, I bought the entire
series! So, if you're looking for an anime that has an interesting plot
with wonderful character designs, this it it! I don't recommend it if you're
looking for something bloody, mindless, or wacky. Although Gundam Wing
tends to put a blood trickle out of the mouth, and has its comic relief
here and there, you'll find yourself wondering more about if Heero accomplished
his mission or not, rather than when Duo and Quatre are going to go into
(summary directly from back of box)

|The Slayers: The Motion Picture|
"Little girl, little breasts, scares a dragon from it's nest!"
Or so the legend goes.
Lina Inverse is a powerful master sorcerer. When the movie opens, she kicks the crap out of a group of bandits. Later, the bandits hire another sorcerer to fight against Lina, because the bandits are too weak. But, that sorcerer is none other than Nahga. Nahga, according to herself, is "Lina's great rival." According to Lina, she's just "a pain in the butt." One fireball puts Nahga out of commission. Lina makes Nahga realize that the bandits who hired her are bad, so they both kick the crap out of them again. Picking through the bandits' belongings, Nahga finds 2 discount tickets to the infamous hot spring resort on Mipross. Quickly, grabbing Lina, she makes a run for the boat to get there. Lina begins to get strange recurring dreams of when the island was new, about a strange boy and an elf. She later finds out that the elf the boy likes was killed in a great massacre of elves by a demon, named Joyrock. It becomes a wacky journey into the past to correct history. What is Lina's reward? The location of the "Pool of growth." Lina's goal? To get to that pool so she can grow taller, and get her breasts bigger. (Trust me, there are very many hilarious breast jokes in this one) All through this journey, Nahga is "tagging along".
