This was one of my favourite anime of the 90s... and also one of the biggest disappointments.
Similar to Dangaioh, A huge lump of the anime is... missing. In this case, it's the series it could have been. You have plenty of setup, with Sonnet, the emotionless automaton warrior of Taron, who ends up by the end questioning her own emotionless state, and Ran Komatsuzaki, the bearer of the power of the Akai Kiba, who starts off as a typical young girl, but ends up as a esper warrior of great potential.
The intro even suggests the kinds of things the series could have had, with Lan and Sonnet fighting each other for reasons that as yet are unknown, and probably never will be known, except the series ends after the big battle to free the awakened Ran, with the Akai Kiba, a spider robot and Sonnet herself ending up in a battle royale that threatens to kill everyone in it's path!
This could have made a great series, but for some reason, It either wasn't picked up for one, or the series dropped off the radar. At least we have what we got... even if it's not enough.
