Trivia

The scene in episode 6, where Largo shoots Quincy and discovers that he's an android, was a reference to a scene in Blade Runner which was scripted but not shot. After Roy killed Tyrell, he discovered that he was a replicant. The real Tyrell had been critically wounded in an accident, and was in cryogenic suspension. See more »

Quotes

Lisa Vanette: Do you know about the Knight Sabers?
Sylia Stingray: Uh-huh, I've heard about them.
Lisa Vanette: Why do you suppose they fight boomers? I hear they take their clients for lots of money, but... I wonder... if they're supposed to be the good guys.
Sylia Stingray: What do you think?
Lisa Vanette: I don't know... But fighting boomers means taking on Genom, doesn't it? For a mere four people to take on such a large corporation is just... well... Genom makes a lot of things that make wars possible. But they also make boomers that are useful to society. And ...

Best. OAV. Ever
30 May 2004 | by (Albuquerque, NM, USA) – See all my reviews

I like Scots. Hell, I am a Scot. But the guy above me is nuts. We all know that you can't just jump in the middle of a series. It's a cardinal sin of animé-watching, and something that will get you mocked mercilessly. And he did this.

The ep he's referring to is 'Revenge Road', and relies on you knowing who Priss, Linna, Nene, and Sylia are. Want to get a better picture of this animé without watching all eight episodes? Watch 5 and 6, 'Moonlight Rambler' and 'Red Eyes', respectively. You'll see some of the best drama, action, and plot to come out of animé ever.

/rant over.

Anyway, this is definitely worth a view. The premere babes-in-battlesuits animé, and home of the Knight Sabers (the most ass-kickin' group of mercs in animé.)
