About Cromartie High School DVD

Cromartie High School complete collection contains all 26 episodes of the anime directed by Hiroaki Sakurai, featuring the English language dub and the original Japanese language with English subtitles!

Is this the real life?

Is this just fantasy?

The only thing for certain is that for Kamiyama, Cromartie High School is his reality. And what a surreal reality it is.

Because this is where the toughest, meanest (and often dumbest) students are sent to do time. At Cromartie, purple-mohawked bruisers and pencil-chomping street thugs are just part of every day life. And so is a 400-pound gorilla. And a macho brute named Freddie who travels with his own theme music. And, of course, Mechazawa, the student voted most likely to need an oil change. So pack your bags, put on your best tough-guy swagger, and get a lesson in insanity from the hilarious losers at Cromartie High. This is one class you won't ever want to cut.

A Surreal, Adult Swim-esque Comedy

by -

If you can imagine an anime custom made for late night "Adult Swim" sensibilities, it would be this anime. The main premise and joke is that the titular highschool is made up of no-good delinquents, always up to no good. However, despite each episode's warning not to copy their behavior, what these punks actually end up doing are the most inane, idiotic shenanigans and non-adventures imaginable.

All the characters are drawn in the thickly shaded, super-masculine style of classic delinquent manga, which just adds to the humor of whatever stupid thing they're doing that day. Like any comedy, some of the humor will and won't work, but the ones that did had me rolling in my chair. If you like surreal or "stupid" humor, this will be perfect for you. The english dub is actually quite good, so I recommend using it when watching.

Dry humor for fans of British comedy

by

I adore this series! It's completely ridiculous all the time, but the short episodes mean it doesn't overstay its welcome.

I'd say the humor is a bit more on the dry side, more comparable to a British style of humor than the typical attempts of knee slappers that most other comedy anime go for.

You can't have it all.

by

What is this?

It's a comic strip that got animated. 12 minute episodes with 1 or several mini-stories. There's no real continuity. Something that changes in one episode may be reverted in the next and reinstated after. Comes subbed and dubbed. The English translation has one person called a slur. (Much less than expected given the subject matter.) Overall, surprisingly clean. Sometimes the sub translation makes more sense, sometimes the dub translation does. This is not at all serious, the 4th wall is broken, and yes, the ending song keeps changing (while the video for it usually doesn't). Visual gags abound.

What's it about?

A "normal" student ends up enrolled in THE high school for delinquents.

Why can't you have it all?

The anime doesn't adopt all of the manga. The manga has 17 volumes, but ADV only brought over 12 before going under. The anime references things from the manga.

- 1 star because of incompleteness and one early episode that's hard to rewatch.
