3 reviews in one

I know I'm doing this somewhat rush, and plots, characters and more won't be thoroughly analyzed (not that they ever are), so I do apologize.


I have to admit I was first hesitant to watch this anime, not because of the genre, but because of the cover. 009-1 has a somewhat plain cover that has a character that reminds me of Robotech. Because of these factors I was ignorant to the fact that it was actually made in 2006, I just assumed it was an old anime someone posted.

A story about a hot secret agent cyborg, her missions, her past, and the decisions she's forced to make and live with. Mylene becomes one of the very few main characters that I like. You can sympathize with her, without her whining for you to.

Now that I've actually watched 009-1, I regret those thoughts, it's a worth wild anime. Chalk full of action, romance, like-able characters, and an actual story line! Some people might think I'm exaggerating and say all anime's have story lines... no no they don't. Mylene and Sam's episode 9.5, honestly moved me (not to tears), just watch it and  you'll see what I mean. I gave this anime 3.5 stockings, but I gave episode 9.5 a grand total of 4.5 stockings. I should even out to 4 stockings.

3x3 Eyes

A short-ish anime containing 7 episodes in total, the reason that I am saying short-ish is due to the fact of the length of the episodes. The first 4 episodes are approximately 30 minutes in length, while the last 3 are 50 minutes each. 3x3 eyes was actually made in 1991, and the second part (3 last eps) in 1994. But don't let that scare you off it's an amazing anime.

This entire anime revolves around Yakumo (was human/now Wu) and Pai (a let's just say demon with a split personality).Yakumo and Pai are searching for a way to become human, and trying to get rid of the immortal lives they were cursed with. I won't say much more than what I've already stated because I'm afraid I might give something away. But I will say that this is one of the few anime's I can say with confidence has made me cry. The story is weaved so skillfully that it's beautiful. I gave the first part 3 stocking our of 5, but the second part I just couldn't ignore I gave it a perfect score 5 stockings. I'll give the anime in entirety 5 stockings.

5 Centimeters per Second
So I know that people will probably bitch at me for "hating" on this movie. This movie was slow paced, and I don't mean five episodes of Goku making the spirit bomb slow... worse. When I first read the synopsis of 5 Centimeters per Second, I found it similar to La Lumiere Blanche a french four novel story I read while I was young. They are nothing alike (but that's not why I don't like this anime). The only character that evolves is the female lead in the first part.

This is just another story of another person's boring life, and all their regrets. I gave it 1.5 stockings, and I'm being generous.
