best Anime of the year!
8 January 2003 | by Ramsesr84See all my reviews

out of (I think)50 animes that started this year in both Japan and in the U.S.,Kinnikuman Nisei (aka Ultimate Muscle) was the best. Sure,there many animes this year that have been release that are WAYYY better,but come on? give this anime a break. Sure,it issnt Evangelion,.Hack///SIGN or RahXephon,but it issnt. Thats what makes this series so difrent from more conteparary animes out in the market. Alot of animes take themselfs WAYYY to serously and pretty much eliminates what we came to see before. Remeber the days of Project A-Ko? or who can forget the classic Ranma 1/2? well,then you'd love Kinnikuman Nisei/Ultimate Muscle. Sure,it's comedy is a bit low-brow,but the low-brow works! and the action is over-the-top,like a WWE show,it's guiltfree pleasure! im pretty sure if anyone would give it a try (at be it,skiping the first few episodes)im pretty sure everyone would like it. I've been watching anime most of my life and I can say from experience that this is the best anime that anime has to offer,it's rare that an anime such as this one exsit and is airing and qickly gaining streign as it goes along. I just hope it gets it's proper respects at the end. Well,hope everyone agrees with me
