WWC: "Honestly, I don’t know whose idea it was to adapt Zetman; a full-fledged manga series into a 13 episode anime. Actually, the problem is not that Zetman is only 13 episodes long, because there are several short series which tell their stories within that time frame. It also isn’t the fact that the animation for Zetman left my throat dry and my eyes watery. It isn’t even that the writing was filled with occasional plot holes from time to time. The sad truth is that Zetman had the colossal potential to become the next Batman, and instead it firmly sat back in its comfort zone of uninspired silliness."
