Review Links

Vol. 1 - "Cromartie's strange mix of sense, stupidity, and surreality may be a bit too strange or a bit too obtuse for some viewers to get into, but I think it's a refreshing change from the usual slew of breast jokes, panty shots, and obnoxious farce that passes for "comedy" in today's anime market."
