Editorial Reviews

Anime producer and distributor Right Stuf, Inc. and its Nozomi Entertainment division are pleased to announce the release of THE THIRD: THE GIRL WITH THE BLUE EYE DVD Collection (Thinpak). One Girl. One Tank. No Problem. In a devastated world overrun by monstrous bugs and ravaged by outlaws, there's only one person to call when you really need a job done right: Honoka. With a sixth sense for danger, sword skills that are second to none, and a smart-aleck A.I. tank by the name of Bogie, she's ready to tackle any job and solve any problem for her clients. But while crossing the desert one night, she finds a young man alone in the wasteland. It's the first step of a journey that will challenge even Honoka's amazing skills to their very limit! Housed in a thin-profile, collectors' art box, this collection contains the complete 24-episode TV series! DVD Features: Scene access, Dolby 5.1 audio for English dialogue, Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo audio for English and Japanese dialogue, English subtitles and English on-screen translations. PLUS: Character bios (including some with commentary by Megumi Toyoguchi, the voice of ''Honoka''), Japanese voice actor interviews, music videos (including some with karaoke music tracks), U.S. series trailer and Nozomi Entertainment trailers.

The Third was a neat concept. I enjoyed the story line and the Main Character definitely won me over. The ending which is a very important thing for me, had a nice completion and good ending.

I recommend this Anime if you like Sword fighting and a good developing story!

In a devastated world overrun by monstrous bugs and outlaws, Honoka is the protector of the innocent. She has a 6th sense for danger, sword skills that rock, and an A.I. tank that acts as her partner and home. She is ready to take on any job that her clients are willing to pay her for. While crossing the desert, she finds a man wandering alone. This man has a secret, and a mission that will change her life forever. Her skills are about to be tested like never before.

This anime is a lot better than I expected. I has good animation, voice acting, a unique story, and a pretty good soundtrack. There is a lot of action, drama, mystery, adventure, and some pretty interesting characters & plot twists. There isn't another anime out there that I can really compare this to. It's pretty original, despite that, I still found it lacking a little something that would make it a 5 star show. It's hard to put my finger on what it is, but The Third is comes just shy of being incredible. Even so, it's still really good, and definitely worth watching. I recommend it to any anime fan.

I watched the show online a few years ago but couldn't find it again after that. Strong heroine, decent plot/adventures, and you can watch this version either subbed or dubbed. Awesome! Most other DVD versions I found only came with English dubbing and were more expensive. My father watched mine and now he's wanting to buy his own.

Honoka is what The Third is all about. She is a great Anime heroine that would make any story good. I would have liked to have seen Honoka instead of Alice as the heroine of Pumpkin Scissors.

The Third does have a firm conclusion. That it will have a firm conclusion is not evident until the end of the series. Initially, The Third seems to consist of episodes in Honoka’s life presented in chronological order. Reminiscent of Glass Fleet, the conclusion is misty and mushy. I wasn’t expecting that type of conclusion. The rest of the series wasn’t that way. Unfortunately, the conclusion makes it difficult to ever be able to continue The Third to another series. We’ve probably seen all of Honoka that we’re ever going to be able to see.

The characters Honoka and Millie are well developed. The others are somewhat shallow, but adequate to tell the story. I wish that there could have been more of Millie in the Series but the writer of The Third felt that she should make her cameo appearance early in the series and move to the background afterwards.

The animation is good. The colors are bright and the scenes are well detailed. Honoka is a Sword Dancer and depicting her required a great deal of animation and that was well done.

Some reviewers objected to the commentary. I admit that it didn't add anything to the story, but it didn't ruin it either and I felt that the commentery should be given a pass.

I feel that The Third would be a good addition to most Anime science fiction collections. Admittedly, Honoka overshadowed the plot, which is decent but not exceptional, and The Third wouldn’t have been nearly as good without her. The Third is very heroine centered. I gave The Third five stars because I liked Honoka and also Millie. Without those two, it would have been four stars at best.

I am not in anime but my husband and daughter are really into it. And when my husband showed my daughter the movie she knew she had to have it. She watched it all the first day she recieved it.

I really liked this anime, featuring a young heroine whose story is told over the entire arc. I will watch this more than once. This is an older series, and I had never heard about it before I stumbled over a review of it on another site. In the end, the story isn't as black and white as the viewer is lead to believe in the beginning. There is some mecha, some "magic", swordplay, giant insects (ewww), a talking tank, pointy eared protagonists, mythology, lots of anti-war visions and political situations. This one stays in my library.

According to the summary, it has both English dialogue -and- Japanese w. or w.o English subtitles. Anime generally sounds best with the original dialogue. But some people don't like reading on-screen text.
