YMMV / Crying Freeman

Go To

Trivia for the manga and OVA:

  • Awesome Art: Ryoichi Ikegami's art is a feast for the eyes, and adds an odd sort of beauty to all the bloodshed.
  • Narm Charm / So Bad, It's Good: The series has NOT aged well. And yet its cheesiness often drives you in.
  • Squick: The "every female gets naked, no exceptions" thing mentioned on the main page? It also applies to old ladies and the morbidly obese.

Trivia for the live-action film:

  • Narm Charm: It's unabashedly cheesy and more than a little pretentious, but it's so damn well-produced and sincere it's hard to love it.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character:
    • Detective Forge is set up as a foil for Netah, a By-the-Book Cop well-aware of his rampant corruption but forced to be his partner. And then she gets unceremoniously killed off in a car accident halfway through the second act without much fanfare, and is never mentioned again.
    • Feng Ling is established as a potential Big Bad, being responsible for Yo's brainwashing and ordering his death. Outside of flashbacks, she's never seen or mentioned again after her initial appearance.


How well does it match the trope?
