    Ah, my Saturday mornings...
    NOTE: UPDATED REVIEW: finished the entire series
    Wooo, I can't believe I actually ended up watching a show for an entire year...I haven't done that since, like high school...

    In the end, it was pretty good--yeah, it was still your typical Saturday morning cartoon fare, but I did genuinely grow to like the characters--they were all pretty unique in their own ways, and even though ...

    Now, it wasn't amazing but it's earnest and may end up pretty interesting.
    The show utilizes many new animation techniques which the animators are obviously not completely used to yet, but you can really tell that they're trying. The show definitely however plays it safe, with cliches such as: a high school setting, a secret society of good guys, the anonymous bad guys who are bad' because they are bad, the overly eager girl, who is a childhood friend, the main ...

    Worth watching if you're jonesing and have caught up everything else.
    Addendum: 05/13/2014 bumped rating a star due to mild character growth and the addition of a devil's advocate smart enough to point out how dumb the main protagonist is acting.

    The plot is trope, the characters stereotypical, the art (barely) squeaks by being horrible, and the CGI needs polish. The dialogue is uninspired at best but the voice acting, in particular for the main character, is ...

    Amazing Character Development
    I don't often write reviews for anime, I typically just watch and move on. Before starting this series, I read through the reviews, and it was fairly mixed, with a lot of people stating that the plot progression / character development was extremely slow. Well, after watching the first 10 episodes, all I have to say is holy crap.

    It's true, about the first 5-6 episodes revolve around the main ...

  • Cool Show, But Not The Greatest
    I know, I'm really late to have finished this show a few months ago. XD Anyway, the action scenes in this are pretty awesome, though I wish we could see more of the Bone Fighter's capabilities outside of the Revelation Cocoon. Also, I honestly thought it was going to be cliche and cheesy, which is sort of is, but some of the things within it are surprising, no spoilers. The CGI fights are ...

  • Inspiring, and great message!
    I slept on this show, because I thought it was just a card selling gimmick. The anime started a little slow for me, but as I watched it, it pulled me in. By the time I was in the last episodes, I was cheering for the heroes, left inspired, and felt complete. The show had a great ending, and it was well worth the watch.

  • One of the most underestimating anime from this Generation !
    I am at episode 50 right now and I Just love it !! I can't wait for the next episode to the come. It might start of slow but all the waiting you do all pays up. Just watch it. Keep in mind this is aimed for younger audience and its 50+ episodes long so far.

    You need to get past episode 1
    Though it might not be original, Majin Bone has become a great shonen action series. You can't judge a series after just one episode. Though the story moves a bit slow at first, the character development, story, humor, and action are all there. As others have mentioned, this is something like an old school Saturday morning cartoon.

    This may not be for everyone, but it's definitely one of the ...

    Inspiring and awe inducing.
    20 episodes in and i've been hooked from the start. I don't understand where all these bad reviews are coming from, probably just a bunch of 16 year old self-proclaimed critics. The show seems to be aimed at a younger age group than most anime, but is by no means a childish cartoon. 9/10 will keep watching.

  • Really weak, no depth or originality
    Weak retread of the same 'ole idea. Not enough here to set it apart to previous shows that did this better. It's like someone thought we need another Power Rangers type of show, but didn't flesh out the idea beyond that.

    The animation looks very cheap as well a lot of jumping around and "fast movement" to make up for the lack of smooth animation.

    All in all, not worth the time.
