[New April 2012] Zetman

Japanese title: ゼットマン
Watch Online:
Genres: Scifi / Action
I've watched: 1 episode

Summary: When artificially created superhuman called "Player" escaped, mysterious murders in the city started to occur.

First impression score: 87 - Violent

Personal comments: This is an anime adaptation of manga written by Masakazu Katsura, who is well know for authoring acclaimed series such as D・N・A², Video Girl Ai, and my personal favorite, I''s. It's sometime hard to believe how versatile he could be--not only he can draw and write a long and emotional love drama like I''s and Video Girl Ai, but also capable of doing shounen action series like Zetman and D・N・A². He is a truely amazing artist. Back to the anime itself, the respect to original author alone would probably be enough for me to stay with this series because knowing the quality of his work, this series should be at least semi-decent, given the animators did not totally mess up in the adaptation.
