Storyline

Set in 2039-2040, This series is set in Megalo City, a city built over the ruins of Tokyo. Boomers, a line of android workers created by the Genom Corporation, perform dozens of tasks, from cleaning to management, to heavy industry. However, a strange series of events has caused a great deal of these boomers to go rogue, despite government and corporation cover-ups to the contrary. The AD Police, a special anti-Boomer task-force, performs it's best to stop the maniacal machines. However, always a step ahead of them are the mysterious vigilantes known only to the public as the Knight Sabers. No one is sure who these warriors are, but a young office lady named Lina Yamazaki is intent on finding out and joining them. Written by Miriani

Trivia

In addition to new character designs, the characters personalities have been altered greatly. Priss is much more stoic in 2040 than she was in the original version, while Sylia, originally very stoic in the first series, is now very emotional. Linna is given much more screen time and depicted as being an idealistic farm girl rather than as a shallow, greedy man-eater. Nene is also much more aggressive (and arrogant) than she was in the original version. The character of Daley Wong is also more subdued and no longer depicted as a homosexual caricature, as he was in the original series. The Leon McNichol character is also different, more of a "tough guy" and less of a pretty boy. See more »

Goofs

In "One Of These Nights", Leon's weight trainer glove disappears from his hand in the close up of him showing Priss the video scan of the soldiers who are moving in to Tokyo to fight the boomer plague. See more »

The Best of the Best!
2 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When I started watching 3 of the episodes of this series on the Action Channel,I have to say out of all the shows that I've seen that ADV released,this one is one of the best shows of all time. I had to see it again,and that's when I got my chance. I bought the entire box set of this series at Best Buy for my 20th Birthday. And I got to enjoy it,and see more of the episodes that I missed on Action Channel,and the same 3 episodes that I've seen. My favorite characters in this show are: Sylvia,Leon,and Nigel. The animation in this series was the best,and the hard suits were cool as well. But the show also has a great voice cast like:Chris Patton,Jason Douglas,Christine Auten,and Hillary Haag,and more. So if you like this show on Action Channel,then you have to own it on DVD. It's the best,and you will see what I mean.
