Trivia

Near the beginning of "No Way Out" the text on Zaizen's terminal reads (in part) "1) INSERT IDENTIFICATION CARD 2) PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING 'Hi My Name is *****. My Voice Is My Passport. Verify Me." This is the same phrase used in the movie "Sneakers" (1992) for the identity scan at the PlayTronics building. Also the text on the screen descrambles in the same way as in the film. See more »

Didn't get much from this anime.
9 December 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This anime is a serious anime. You don't have the off-the-wall characters reacting in extremes. Except for Robin, even the hairstyles are realistic and average. The clothing is modest. The characters act human and mature. The humor is subdued and infrequent. I appreciated the maturity of the show.

This anime is also a dark anime. Most of the time you are indoors or in a dark city atmosphere. However I did feel the art was well-done. There is a somberness in both the environment and the characters. Characters cry but rarely laugh. You see some anger, fear, and insanity in side characters. The leads seem to try to hide their emotions or simply are not very emotional at all.

The situations you see involve law-force-like action, investigation, office work environments, and supernatural powers.

The storyline is mildly interesting. The first half doesn't build much on the story, but the second half is more dynamic and leads up to the point of the series.

Honestly, I didn't get much from this anime so far as making me think, sending a message, or even evoking emotions. Because of this, I do not consider watching this anime worth it. Two points in the story did touch me - One involved a mother and her lost child. The other involved a scene with the heroine when she entered a well.

There is a theme of hidden intentions, bureaucracy, and knowing what is right and who to trust. And perhaps a theme of loyalty to friendship. But there is nothing striking or eye-opening in the way these themes were presented, at least not to me.
