Editorial Reviews

The complete collection at an incredible price!

In Aoba Tsuzaki’s world, everything appears to be normal. This model-building fanatic spends her days alone in her room, happily constructing the plastic robots that dominate her existence. But something sinister stirs beneath the Earth’s surface – and a violent threat to mankind rumbles towards it’s deadly unveiling. In the calm before the storm, a cross-dressing kidnapper brings Aoba face-to-face with a brutal fighting machine, and her dreams of robots give way to horrifying nightmares.

As the world crumbles around her, Aoba is recruited into the clandestine Angel – an elite fighting force which pits giant robots against the ancient Jinki while an unseen evil lurks in the shadows. JINKI:Extend is a world of blinding explosions, intrigue, and battle-hardened beauties hell-bent on revenge. Nothing is as it seems. No one can be trusted. And you fight till your last breath.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Potential - Mixed Pacing August 31, 2009
I'll confess it: My love for robot-based anime has, on several occasions, resulted in my having purchased and endured countless substandard shows. I try to come on and review as many of the good ones as time permits but sometimes the not so goods deserve a bit of attention as well. Jinki: Extend is a mixed bag on these fronts. There are some great concepts here, slick art, and a nice story. There are also some strange tangents and a bit of jumping around the timeline that will confuse just about everyone. But before we get ahead of ourselves here, let's take a look at the hard facts.

Originally released both as individual volumes and a complete collection sets by ADV Films, Funimation has recently acquired the rights to the show and has wasted little time in getting a Complete Series release out to the public. Coming in at a total runtime of 325 minutes, Jinki: Extend the Complete Series spans 2 discs and comes packaged as a pair of thin packs within a cardboard slipcase.

The show wears an appropriate TV PG (13+) rating, which is due to some grandiose violence, and a bit of non-nudity fan service (breast jokes and some lesbian insinuation).

Language options are typical sub & dub meaning the option of original Japanese dialog trackor an English dub (either of which is in stereo) and English subtitles available under either language choice.

Extras include textless opening and ending and of course, a nice host of Funimation trailers.

The simple summary of the show's entirely specious plot would look something like this: Based on a manga by Sirou Tunasima, Jinki Extend combines cute bubbly girls with giant robot elements.

Action-packed, dramatic moments but a plot that goes back and forth with present and past that may confuse viewers. "Jinki:Extend" is an anime series that has fun characters but with only 13 episodes, you feel that certain story elements were rushed.

"Jinki:Extend" is a 13-episode anime series that debuted on TV Asahi back in 2005 and is based on a manga series by Shirou Tsunashima. The anime series is directed by Masahiko Murata ("Gilgamesh", "Shikabane Hime" and "MazinKaiser") and features music composition by well-known anime composer Kenji Kawai ("Dai-Guard", "Death Note", "Maison Ikkoku", "Patlabor", "Ranma 1/2", "Blue Seed") and character designs by Naoto Hosoda (who worked on series such as "Boogiepop Phantom", "Gurren Lagann" and "Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade").

The series is quite interesting as it featured 13-episodes but the 13th episode was never aired, the manga series was never completed due to creative differences between the creator Shiro Tsunashima and Comic Blade's publisher and the anime series was released in the US through ADV Films but was one of the titles relinquished to FUNimation Entertainment.

"Jinki:Extend - The Complete Series" features a total of 13 episodes on two DVD's. Here is a spoiler-less summary for each episode:

DISC 1:

* EPISODE 1- The Battlefield the Girl Saw - The introduction of the main characters and how Aoba came to learn of the Jinki.
* EPISODE 2 - After the Tears - Aoba learns about Angel and trains to pilot the Moribito.
* EPISODE 3 - Quality and Quantity - We learn about Akao Hiragi and when she was introduced to the Angel team. And how Aoba meets the other members of the Angel team.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Pretty Boring Anime January 4, 2013
By KevinB
Alba spends most of her time building plastic models. One day, after her Grandmother dies, she is kidnapped by a cross-dressing man. He takes her to a base where she becomes the pilot of a mecha called a Jinki. Alba fights to save humanity.

This anime is pretty boring. I realized about 7 episodes into the series that all these battles that took place for no reason. There is no clear enemy. It's like a child playing with with toy soldiers. There is no point to anything that happens in this series. The good guys and bad guys have no goals or allegiances. It seems like they have a simple code: "Wow! Another mecha, lets blow it up!" They simply fight for the hell of it. The animation is average, the voice acting is pretty good, and the soundtrack is okay. Nothing important happens in this series. It just kinda exists. I can't recommend it. It's a serious bore.
