Editorial Reviews

While alive, Kate, Claire, Rose, and Rachel each explored the streets of New York with the promise of limitless futures unfolding before them. But now, brought together as members of a blood-stained sisterhood, their once-delicate hands reach out to silence demonic beasts no ordinary weapon can destroy. Brutally murdered only to be resurrected as clandestine killers, the girls must stalk their prey with a primal ferocity – or risk losing what remains of their so-called lives. The only clues to their tragic past are a swarm of crimson butterflies and the mysterious woman who carries the harrowing secret behind the lives they lived – and the walking corpses they’ve become.

Customer Reviews

It would probably look okay on a smaller screen, not my 48" LCD.
Christopher Barrett
Well, the action is short, repetitive sequences that are all very similar, with no real intrigue, simply obligatory, to sort of advance the story.
Sharptactics
I wouldn't go as far as to say that this title is for everyone even though my critique appears quite favorable in hindsight.

Red Garden is one of those rare anime titles that slips through the cracks as far as placing it into a single genre is concerned. It spans a pretty wide variety of subjects and pacing but at its core is a basically a mystery laced with supernatural undertones. But before we get ahead of ourselves here, let's take a look at the hard facts.

Originally released in individual season sets by ADV Films, this set represents the first time the complete series with OVA is being released to the public. Coming in at a total runtime of 600 minutes, Red Garden The Complete Series spans 4 discs and comes packaged as a pair of thin packs within a cardboard slipcase.

The show wears an appropriate TV MA (17+) rating, which is due to some disturbing imagery and horror-themes and some segments loaded with gore/ violence.

Language options are typical sub & dub meaning the option of original Japanese dialog track (in Stereo) or an English dub (Dolby Digital 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound) and English subtitles available under either language choice.

The breakdown consists of 22 episodes and the OVA, and of course, a nice host of Funimation trailers.

To explain the show to someone who has never seen it would go something like this: A wave of teen suicides washes over New York City (not Tokyo for once) and we follow the exploits of four teenage girls/ high school classmates: Kate, a rich preppy snob, Rose, family babysitter and modest personality; Rachel, party chick extraordinaire; and Claire, the quiet rebel.

The girls all wake up one morning only to discover that they cannot remember anything of the night before.

Strange and horrible things are happening in the city, right under our noses, and most of us never find out. Those who do, often die. Four high school girls encountered the horror, and died. That's not what this anime is about. It's about what happened to them afterwards. Other reviewers have given a good plot outline, so I will content with what I liked and didn't like.

First, overall, I liked this. It's above average in concept, in character development, in dialogue. I own it and plan to watch it again. I plan to give it to my friends. It features a group of sane girls trying to cope with insane personal disaster. It's their story, and so we are spared the clueless, gormless, constantly embarrassed male co-star, or the loud and bratty little sister, or the overly moe pet. It's surprisingly quiet. Yes, there's too much shouting during the fight scenes, and some of the secondary characters can be accused of overacting, but it's not one of those anime where everyone teeters on the brink of adrenalin exhaustion. Each of the characters is a unique individual, and is believable, even when their circumstances aren't. Rose, for example, fighting to keep her family together and care for her younger siblings, with her mother in the hospital and her father run off, and no sign of NYC Family Services.

SPOILER ALERT, all the way down.

That said, there's plenty of plot holes, and your disbelief has to be hanged, not just suspended. We never find out why the girls were enticed to the old house in the first place, nor why they were killed, or why they were left. Was it all a plot to get one New Body? If they were recruited to fight the other clan, why weren't they trained to fight? Why weren't they given better (i.e. any) weapons?

I'll write this review in two sections: Actual Show review and Package review.

Show-

Now, if you aren't all for violence, I do not recommend this show. The show itself shows very little in way of violence, and the only murdering or blood it even presents to the viewer is done in a very stressful way to show the impact that being forced to kill someone or something has on the human mind. The show is more about family ties, friends, an overlying problem having to deal with two waring families and the lives being affected by horrible time and place accidents. I'd rate this show highly, yet it's not my all-time favorite either.
The character reactions and attitudes are believable. I found myself impressed by the quality in that department. However, the actual image quality of the show isn't very good. I doubt it's because it's on DVD, but the screen has a sort of fuzzy quality to it throughout the whole show. It may be on purpose, but it doesn't look too good in the end.

Package-

For those of you ordering through Amazon and choosing to have Amazon package and ship it to you, the packaging is the perfect size for the item and its quality is good enough with minimal cardboard which I like. You all probably know what the package will be like if you've ordered through here before. The show comes with no special features worth watching (from what I've seen on Disks 1 and 2 so far) except a textless opening. This is the S.A.V.E. package though, so you shouldn't expect much anyway.

Overall, I highly recommend this show. It's quite the attention grabber.
