Major COOL, 3 April 2003
Author: lordzedd-1

Martial arts action with robots. It's like a live action anime from Hong Kong. Strong plot, strong story, cool robots.

ON A SCALE OF 1-10 (10 BEING BEST)

I GIVE "I LOVE MARIA"

9 1/2 STARS

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ SIDE)

1) COOL STORY (It never wavered)

2) COOL ROBOTS (Perfect designed)

3) LIKEABLE HUMAN CHARACTERS (The lead characters are very funny and likeable)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- SIDE)

1) NO DUBBED VERSION (It only has subtitles and that gets in the way of watching the story)
