Heat Guy J Vol. 1: Super Android

» written by Dark Wind [Discuss]

Synopsis
Daisuke Aurora and Android ‘J’ are partners who work together as part of a special division ‘pre-crime’ police force. Together, they are a great team, taking down crime anywhere in the oceanic-cityscape of Judoh. But with a mob family vying for power against all others, with the head only known as ‘VAMPIRE’; and another man, with a hidden past, with the head of a werewolf, Daisuke and J have a lot to handle.

Review
I’d heard good things about Heat Guy J for a year or so now. I anticipated its release stateside, hoping it would live up to the hype. I was not let down in any way. As of late, I had been getting into many shoujo anime series, this show brought me back into the shounen fold, where I belong. This is male drama and action at its core. I enjoyed this volume a great deal, and cannot wait for the next. There’s almost nothing I did not like with this show.

The show oozes cool much like famed series Cowboy Bebop and has action to spare much like Trigun or Hellsing. It’s most definitely the sum of it’s parts with beautiful animation, excellent music, and a top-notch enjoyable detective story.

The Breakdown
It has great action. Beautiful animation. Awesome music. A great story. There’s really not much not to like in this. Buy the first volume, and give it a try.

 

» The Pros
Animation can't be beat. While the show was just animated in 2002, it is possibly one of the best looking TV series I've ever seen. Also, the music is excellent, with a variety of soft rock to even bagpipes, and it's all very cool. The production team took many popular musicians and put them together as one band to make the songs for this show. It worked out great. The story is very intriguing, while so far each episode is self-contained, there is a larger story going on here, and things like vampires and werewolves and how it all fits seems awesome.

» The Cons
Sometimes the CGI and regular animation don't mesh so well. We still have yet to see the bigger picture. Not much else really.

One of the best animated TV shows I've ever seen, period.

» Sound

Music comes out great, and it sounds awesome. Great mix of twangy guitar, bagpipes, and rock to make it one of the most appealing soundtracks I've ever listened to. Now I must go out and buy the OST.

» Story

Whileeach seperate story is great so far, I haven't yet seen the main storyline yet.

This must be bought, now, by all action anime fans.

 

» Other Information
Language: English/Japanese with English Subtitles

Extras:
None

Package:
Really bad. They could have made some great ones, but they chose the worst picking J's face and making it big and cartoony. Possibly one of the worst I've seen.
