  • deeply touching, emotional and enchanting...where can I buy DVD of complete series (1-51) with english subs?
    Hello,
    This deeply emotional, complex, touching and romantic story definitely has left impression...which I never expected to happen.
    As for ending, alas the "hanging-in-the-air" ending is very popular in Japanese storytelling...
    it's beautiful and unique in it's own way...yet still leaves hope for continuation.
    I was wondering, where is it possible to buy the DVD of "glass mask" ...

  • Excellent drama! A classic...
    Though this anime is dated the story and the characters still hold up. After awhile you start to forget at how dated the anime is and get engrossed with the characters and the story. This is definitely a classic and worth having in your personal collection!

  • An anime you won't regret watching!
    The Glass Mask, while slow to start, is an absolute gem when it comes to anime. Every episode will make your heart race and excited for the next episode. Great realistic characters, great development throughout the entire anime, and the art is very well done! It wasn't odd for me to completely become absorbed into the episodes and treat all of the characters as real people. Sometimes I got so ...

  • Beautiful Masterpiece!
    What a wonderful and brilliantly written story! This is going to be a timeless master piece. I have no negative comments for Glass Mask. Just praises. It so happen that the author used Manga and Anime as a medium. The story would have also been effective in a novel format. To me, this is a soap opera and you feel the characters are alive. It is also the first time that I fell in love and rooting ...

  • Wow... it's rare for an anime to have this much impact.
    Only two anime have made an emotional impact on me. I cannot believe the detail and complexity of the storyline. I highly recommend this anime to everyone who loves drama and romance. The story was perfectly put-together with every element of a perfect drama. 5 stars for making me watch anime all day (which I haven't done in a LONG time!)
    The only BUT:
    The ending was wrapped up in a hurry and ...

  • Entertaining for an acting anime
    This story is about Maya Kitajima who recently takes up acting and enjoys the endless possabilities. I give this a good review because it has a lot of replay value and the violence, depression, and joy that comes in one package of 51 episodes is worth it.

    Replay Value: 8/10
    Interest Value: 6/10
    Ending Value: 7/10

    Overall 7/10

  • enchanting draws you in
    I loved this series, it was beautifully done. I would have liked a little more relationship completion though. I felt the way they delved into the different mind set of each actor and how they developed and grew was wonderful. Fighting hard ships and feeling the excitement of success it was a roller coaster of emotions.

  • Stunning. What is means to be an Artist.
    This is a story that is moving, inspirational, pretty realistic. Relationships grow with time, misunderstandings are discovered and alleviated. This is a story about what it might mean to be an artist: fear and anxiety serve as detriments but also catalysts for an artist to push forth toward the never ending challenges and chances at the new project. As an artist myself, you do this because of ...

  • Drama, Drama, Drama!
    I am NOT a big fan of drama, yet this somehow pulled me in and I watched all fifty one episodes of it. The anime is similar to skip beat, and I still prefer skip beat, but this was really good.
    It revolves around a girl whose, even though she doesn't truly know it in the beginning, world revolves around acting. She lives a pretty hard knock life, trying to make it work with her old and frail ...

  • Anime that will leave you in awe!
    Honestly I have to say this is a great anime but none of this would be possible without the voice acting. This is an anime about acting so it only makes sense. The characters have to change their tone of voice in a heartbeat because they are actors. They do this very well especially the 2 main characters. All in all, it is has a slow pick up but after I think episode 5 you will be hooked the whole ...
