Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This action-packed animated series combines the fighting elements of Japanese anime with themes drawn from Mexican folklore as it follows the criminal activity and investigation of a Mexican crime organization. But while the concept may be unique for an anime series, the overall story world is presented in a way that is reminiscent of a gritty 1970s B-film, complete with overdramatic flashbacks, over-the-top slasher sequences, and two-dimensional stereotypical characters. But somehow Seis Manos manages to tie these exploitation film characteristics together to create something that is highly entertaining, if not mentally stimulating.
