Ok, when I first saw the trailers for Heat Guy J, I was like "ehhh". Not to thrilled but I did like the music. Then one night while flipping through channels, go by MTV2 and heard "Vampire". Now of course that got my attention. Turns out Vampire is a term they characters call the head of family, kinda like the mob. So that pretty much hooked me. The music is catchy, by Try Force. Nice animation, the CG is all right not the greatest but passable. The characters are great though. Daisuke Aurora is part of the Special Unit assigned to detect and prevent future crime. His partner is J who happens to be the only legal android in the city. Then you have Claire Leonelli who is the "vampire", the new head of the crime family. I like him, he's a good psycopath with a penchant for hand grenades. 'Course my favorite character is Boma. He's the brooding, emotionally baggaged wolf-headed guy with a one track mind and a one track sword. This series also has a decent English voice cast. Daisuke - Steve Cannon, Heat Guy J - Bob Pappenbrook, Claire Leonelli - Johnny Yong Bosch, Boma - Edward Villa. I got these names from www.imdb.com and then double checked the names against the credits. That's one thing that annoys me, sometimes they don't put the character names with the voice actors names, so you don't know who's who. ugh. ANYway, this is my current obsession. But I think I'm in the mood for Vampire Hunter D:Bloodlust next.
