There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Was in great condition. Big Eyes, Small Mouth RPG is an excellent system that uses a tri-stat, point based build for easy concept to paper characters. What it lacks in mechanical specifics, it makes up for in freedom to choose and freedom for both player and story teller to build a world of fantastic adventure and thrilling heroes. Fun, easy to learn, with lots of good advice. Role-playing Anime turns a lot of usual role-playing conventions on their head; for instance, a good anime character is probably two-dimensional with an outrageous name, and editiion act any more consistently than the flimsy plot demands.
Roll up a character, add some tags to give them form, and start acting up. I do have a couple of criticisms. Psionic combat is unnecessarily complex.
Big Eyes, Small Mouth – Wikipedia
In the character creation department, some of the mechanics are a little vague; a few pronouns and articles would vastly improve the Special Attack and Special Defense rules.
The artwork is cute and entertaining. The in-betweener demi-comics are good illustrations of the genre. The book itself is durable, owing partially to its small size. Not the best game ever made, but I happened to find Big Eyes Small Mouth original edition at a used book store, and found it to be rather interesting. While bwsm second edition of BESM is far more inclusive and detailed and nearly three times larger than the original edition besj, the original edition is still a good match for those just beginning with role-playing games.
Especially for the novice GM GameMasterBESM second edition contains so many rules and details that knowing how to sort through all the information presented and determine which are truly needed for a campaign and which can be set aside can be difficult. Novice GMs and younger gamers can especially benefit from the simplicity of presentation and the significantly fewer rules and details while still maintaining the creative flexibility necessary to present and participate in an original role-playing campaign.
Those beginning their anime RPG experience with the original BESM sourcebook will have an easier time adapting to the second-edition sourcebook later on. BESM takes the full anime genre into role-playing for the first time. Not just mecha pilots and hard suits, BESM is about the genre in general. The rules are generic, simple, quick-playing, and fun while still capturing the anime feel that has been lacking from other anime games of late.
BESM also makes use of anime fan-art that is generally very good. There are a few pictures not up to the quality of the rest of the book, but the majority of the art is great there are even little chans holding page number and topic signs!
I recommend BESM to any gamer looking for a more all-encompassing anime game and to anyone looking for a fast and fun system that can handle all manner of “larger than life” action – from Mecha to Magical Girls. One person found this helpful. This humble little book rocked my RPG world when I picked up on a whim. I love to collect small and odd RPG’s. What surprised me was how great, simple, and appealing this little book was.
I eagerly awaited the other two supplements to come out, and was not disappointed. Sadly, the first edition is no longer in Print. However, the 2nd Edition Is everything the first one was and more. It is a complete game completely to itself, with no need for any expansion. The author’s advice for Game Masters and players alike, “Watch lots of anime. I mean, how ELSE are you going to learn about anime characterization?
This book is a MUST for anime and role-playing fans alike.
This is one of the best role playing games on the market. Most games encourage players to bend the rules, only to release supplement after supplement of new rules that make most players just argue.

Wdition one, however, is easy to customize and is fun to at the same time Allowing you to create your ideal yet not-to-powerful charictar! To any real anime fan, this is the perfect RPG.
