Hello, this is a review of the Samurai Deeper Kyo TV series. I'll start with the graphics, and drawing style, the style of art was very good in my oppinion, it matched the manga well, and the glow graphics, and special effects and stuff liek that were very well done, for example the most used oen is when Kyo uses his Mumyo Jinpu Ryu. over all i give the graphics a perfect 5/5
Now, I shall move onto the story, this is one of the two downfalls that this series has. The story, if you ahve never read the manga, is in fact an amazing story. BUT! if you ahve read the manga, and enjoyed it, prepare to eb somewhat disapointed. The anime strays very far from the manga's storyline, events similar to the manga occur but not in the same way that the manga's had happened. The storyline will keep you intrigued and fascinated, even if u have read the manga you'll be wondering whats gonna happen next. I was still disapointed in the fact that the anime strayed form the manga though so my final score for the story is a 3/5
Now onto sound, the only thing keeping the sound category from a 1 is that all the backround soundeffects and music is awesome, (especially the acoustic guitar during flashbacks loved that). But why is it getting a two? the voice actors, admittedly the voice actors did very well, but i honestly don't think the casting director chose teh right voice actors for the show. (btw i'm talking american voice actors, i haven't watched it in japanese yet.) Honestly tho, some of them were just stupid, the guy who played tristan played Mika's father in like the 3rd episode that disapointed me, and the voice actor of Muramasa was dispointing too. All the other voice actors were all right, i'd say the only two that fit perfectly in my mind were Saizo and Sasuke, it was just a dispointing job. For kyo, they got the guy who does Yugi's voice on Yu-Gi-Oh, i was picturing more of a spike, for kyo, Yukimura's could have been better too, say maybe played by the guy who did Vashes voice in Trigun.
The overall replay value of this series is good, but it really all depends on if you liek it or not, if u didn;'t dont watch it again, if u did watch it again lol so replay gets a 3/5 and overall i'd say teh series as a whole get's a 4 out of 5 for just being a good anime. thank you for your time n.n
