Anime DVD Review

We remember when anime was stiff, and how blown away we were by Crusher Joe when it premiered because the characters "acted" instead of "reacted". Photon may be the first in a new revolutionary trend in anime where the characters are actually animated in slightly different styles to emphasize their personalities. Just as no two humans move the same way, you'll find differences in the way the characters look and move.

And this excruciating attention to detail isn't lost on other aspects of this feature-packed DVD. The story, music, action, pacing, humor, characterizations and overall direction are astounding. This is easily one of the best titles ever produced by AIC. There is some nudity and violence, so it's not for kids, but it is for everyone else.
