The Boys will always be in town!, 23 March 2002
Author: Mako from Cyber Space

This is such a good series! The story line is great! When the commercials first came on, I didn't think it was going to be that good, but I was wrong!

The story is about 5 (cute) guys that have to battle it out with an evil demon from another realm that has 4 (also cute) guys to do the battling for him. It's your usual story of good versus evil, but it has some nice side-stories.

Since it was made in '88, the animation compares to Mobile Suit Gundam and Dragon Ball Z. It's not always smooth and clean, and the explosions don't look all that real. Sometimes you want to laugh when the characters start to run, but it's still good!

There are some flaws to the story, two particularly annoying characters that always seem to be in the way. (Fans of this show know which two I'm talking about! I won't tell you though, I wouldn't want you to hate them because I do...)

It's good qualities work with it's bad qualities, making this series a classic in my book (and video collection)!

Mako-chan7 gives it a perfect *10*
