    Ah, my Saturday mornings...
    *NOTE: so far I've watched up to ep 16*

    I'll be honest, the only reason I flat-out watched this is only because I found out (after the show aired) that the great Yusuke Murata (illustrator for Eyeshield 21) designed the characters. And that was about it.

    Oh, and also because KENN is the MC's seiyuu.

    This show makes no attempts to hide the fact that it's clearly aimed at your ...

  • 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.

    You need to give it a chance.
    After watching up to the current episode...the show is more than just action.

    It questions morality and why we do what we do

    Who is your family?

    If you do the right thing with wrong intentions, are you evil?

    Not superficial, if you stick with it.

    Terrible, who watches this trash?
    Uninspiring action scenes, lame dialogue, lame characters, preposterous plot. I don't know how this made it into a long running show.

    Apparently they upped the character count for reviews, so I guess I will fill in nonsense for this nonsense show. blah

    Another power rangers
    This anime is something you will see on a Saturday morning cartoon network. However those have a lot more going for them then this anime. The first episode of the anime was action packed and it seemed like it had great potential however after further episodes I seem to lack a "feel" and or connection to the main characters which leaves a gap in this anime. Without proper character development no ...

    First thoughts on the first episode
    It started off with an action fight scene with no talking which put me off a bit. Then it switches to the main character of the show which in most anime acts heroic sort of and has justice gets in a bad situation and gains powers. The plot made no sense to me and the people in the background waiting to see what happens made no sense are they the good guys or bad no idea yet. the overall show was a ...

    Is this going anywhere?
    After six episodes the story is still non-existent. The only emotion I feel for any of the characters is annoyance. Half of the dialogue consists of the protagonist repeating the same question with a dumbfounded look on his face.

    Forget about questions like, "Why are we fighting?", "Who are we fighting?", "What are 'bones', and why are they linked to the characters?"

    When we're this far ...

    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 ...
