Here's the most recent post on Amazon - what the hell are people thinking??? It's like the person didn't watch the final 2 acts or something!!!!



Quote:
I had high hopes for this series when I started watching it, though I guess the nonstop obscenities should have been the tip off that under all of that visual masterwork and spiritually stunning characterizations there lurked an twisted message that wasted ten hours of my life to discover. Shandala is truly a wonderful character, pure and good, and the characterization of her is very tender, so by episode 21 or so the storyline actually looked like it could end hopeful and uplifting. Oh, how wrong of me to think so, because for all of the philosophical and religious trappings, the message of "hope" the marketers promise is that the characters learn in the end that the villain's demented plan to save the world is really more effective than their spiritualities and that the "truth" is that the emotional and physical torture and destruction of an innocent, good woman is the only way to save the world! Spare me. And if you think that I am disgusted by this message, just imagine what the Muslims will think when they see what becomes of all of that quoting of the Koran and the Muslim character's final opinions. Although the story is technically good, I'm only giving it one star for the message of despair.

That's terrible! D:
The ending doesn't portray desparity at all!
I should go to his house, and kick him!

You know, I've been writing book reviews, movie reviews, and video game reviews.

I think a "Broken Saints" review is due to be added to the bunch as well.

When I have time to watch some of it again to get my fire going, I'll promise I will write a review and post it on Amazon.

HOLY EDIT BATMAN!

I'M SURE IF I GAVE IT A CHANCE AND CONCENTRATED REALLY HARD I MAY HAVE GOTTEN THE POINT. LOTS OF POETIC RAMBLING, AND I HATED THE STILL FRAME ANIMATION. I JUST PERSONALY LIKE A LOT OF ACTION IN MY ANIME. MAYBE I WATCH TOO MUCH DBZ. ALTHOUGH I AM WAAAAY INTO APOCALYPTIC STUFF, THIS SERIES WAS JUST TOO DEEP AND POETIC.


Head, meet desk. You two are about to become very good friends.

You know, I wouldn't get worked up about that one at all. That is the least offensive "bad review" I've ever read. This time, the writer actually demonstrates how he/she is the only problem present. "Maybe I just watch too much (insert abysmal failure of popular series here)!" "I'm too shallow to enjoy this!"

Now, some other reviewers need strangling, sure.

On a side note, I was going to watch it again, and then post a review, but I gave my copy to Nami Oki, and I'm still trying to get her to watch past chapter one. >w<

I've had the same problem over the years. Lost two copies of the original release of the DVD to loaning them to people I ended up cutting off contact with. I'm still holding out hope of getting them back someday, but I've got my Newgrounds copy now with the mini-comic, so all is well with the world. I'll be investing in a FOX copy eventually, so I've got a loaner to give people, should I ever meet someone with the attention span to give BS it's due.
