This review is from: Gad Guard - Complete Collection [DVD] (DVD)
This is a really good series. I would give it five stars, but unfortunately my feelings towards this series have been rather mixed. I bought it a long time ago, and initially tried to watch it. I put in the DVD and proceeded as usual... then it started. The jazz music. I can't say I particularly like the J-Pop of most other anime series, but it's listenable, y'know? Anyway, I watched the titles and a bit of the beginning and stopped watching (impatient girlfriend not impressed by the jazz). For months, Gad Guard sat on my DVD shelf waiting to be loved, and every time I thought of watching it, I immediately started procrastinating; the very tool that could aid my procrastination of important things was actually causing me to do important things, such as coursework, instead of watch it.
Finally, I bit the bullet and gave it a second chance... This is a fantastic series. The animation is beautiful and the story is great. I loved every minute of it. It's beautiful and somewhat horrible at the same time, like most good anime is.
The only thing is that, as mentioned above, they had given it a better theme tune (or at least made the opening credits a bit shorter - at least after the first episode, anyway). Oh, and one thing that I don't understand is the PG certificate... There's smoking, swearing ("son of a bitch"), sex and all sorts. I wouldn't recommend this to children, with or without parental guidance! Haha.
