Is It Any Good?

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

The action series, which was once adapted from the original manga in 1998, offers viewers a suspense-filled story world with a 1990s vibe. Yu Ominae is a likable main character who uses his smarts and advanced ARCAM super suit to fight all sorts of powerful enemies. Secondary plot lines, such as his relationship with Professor Yamabishi (Xanthe Huynh/Mitsuho Kambe) adds to the drama. However, it's the range of references to various philosophies and religions, which are associated with the relics that the characters are dealing with, that make the story interesting. Granted, it's violent, and the animation isn't always sharp. But Spriggan is entertaining, and worth checking out if you enjoy the genre.
