One Promising Aspect..., 1 July 2003
Author: Zeorymer from New York, USA

As a whole, this series would not make a list of top ten animes. It might make a list of top fifty....might. The animation is unique, but looks like Mickey Mouse stuff, the storyline is unoriginal, the battle scenes typical. The only interesting thing about this anime is Jiro's inner struggle. He is a robot, but since he is endowed with the Gemini System (artificial conscience), he is able to tell right from wrong. However, this system is badly damaged early on in the series and Jiro is constantly asking "Is this right? Is this what I'm supposed to do?" etc. etc...Also, Jiro has to deal with being a robot when he is surrounded by humans. Where he is hard and cold, the people around him, like Mitsko, are soft and warm. It's no mistake that the little boy told Jiro the story of Pinocchio, for they are much alike. Jiro has to deal with peoples fear of him, since he's different from them.

Aside from Jiro's inner conflicts, this series is unremarkable.
