  • Is it about the journey or destination?
    Before you watch this show, or even read the rest of this review, ask yourself the question above because I have a different review for each answer.

    If you prefer the journey, then I can say that this show scores a 5/5 in my books. Every single major character, protagonist and supporting cast included, develops throughout the show in ways that make you bounce from love to hate and back again. ...

  • Entertaining, But Something Lacking
    I liked the premise of the show, and the two main female leads and male lead are pretty well though-out characters. The voice acting fro the two female leads is nothing short of phenomenal as they both take on different character personas throughout the series.
    The first half of the series, Maya is bombarded with one hardship after another. The second half is dedicated to her pursuit of the role ...

  • Girl Learns All About Drama
    If you've watched a lot of anime, you're already savvy to the tropes this show heavily relies on. Protaganist is extremely driven at some activity, protaganist gives their all training in all the obscure techniques, protaganist meets rival, rival acknowledges protaganist, they have fierce battles via the chosen activity. You know what though? They keep doing it because this plot device ...

  • So addicting, my anime-hating mother even wanted to watch it!
    Friendly warning[/u] - there is a spoiler in this review and I shall mark it accordingly. ^_^;

    I kid you not, I watched the first episode my mother, (who normally dislikes anime for lack of understanding it), was like "Hey, let's watch the next episode!" and we binge-watched the whole series together over the course of a few weeks.

    The absolute DRAMA of this show is utterly ...

  • Great series! Five stars!!!!!
    I love the show, I can re- watch and re- watch every episode a hundred times!
    This is a wonderful series that takes you along for the ride as Maya grows as an actress! This keeps you interested from the very first episode to the last. My only wish is that it would have continued along with the actual manga.

  • Started off great, downhill halfway through
    I really loved this show to start, but once you get farther in many things will be brushed over and repercussions from past events will be ignored. Some of it is ham-handed, but the acting scenes are beautiful. This anime invoked a lot of emotions in me, but I left it disappointed. If you aren't seriously bothered by these things then I'd recommend it.

  • 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 ...
