Great Video game adaption
24 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was really impressed with this anime. I played all the arc the lad video games and loved them. I expected to see the exact same thing as the video game had, but the anime was altered a little. Not to much to change the story line, but the story was a little different and characters changed somewhat. Great action and romance. I would recommend this anime to anyone. The story is about a kid named Elk who is a bounty hunter. He was orphaned when his village was attacked. some memories come back to him and he finds out he was in a research facilaty when he was a young boy but escaped without his friend. He searchs to find her and joins Arc who he thought was the person who destroyed his village. Together they work to save the Earth.
