Anime DVD Review

We're suckers for retro-style anime that has a lush graphic-novel look, and Kikaider is definitely in that league. With a wonderful 70's era manga/comic look, yet, modern kick-ass animation, it's a fantastic mesh of the old and new, giving it a very stylized feel with its similarities to the layout and movement of a manga series. Based on a Japanese live-action superhero show, the anime allows a greater creative freedom for the storytellers and they make use of that freedom with dramatic flair.
Android Kikaider - Lonely Soul
Originally airing in Japan during 2000, Kikaider uses the digital animation look to mesh with the feel of the series 70's style. The transfer has very vibrant colors and a clean look to the show, adding to the graphic-novel feeling. Cartoon Network (previously) ran it as a part of Adult Swim, but now we don't need to stay up until midnight to watch it!
