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 »

A failed combination of Hellsing and Ghost in the Shell
30 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

This series is good, but considering the direction it came from, I say it was a failed project. You've got a secret commando style governmental organization like Section 9 in the Ghost in the Shell SAC series, but they fight people that discover their "witch" powers and use them for bad purposes, kinda like in Hellsing. Leave it to the Japanese to make a show about Genome X :)

Anyway, the things that made the named series good are missing or trimmed in this one. The violence is completely censored, like it was supposed to be a children's show. The content, though, with people switching sides from one organization to another, with betrayals and complex decisions, are not suited for a child. So what's with the non-violence thing? The way everything seemed to crumble beneath a gigantic gray force of state, the thing that made anyone really scared in the last episodes of Ghost in the Shell, it's present here, but also trimmed down, as if the show was made for heart patients. They start one direction and when the tension gets high enough to get interesting, the whole thing stalls. The interesting dialogs and ideas from GITS are missing, the true threats from Hellsing are not there...

In conclusion, this could have been a great, even if a clone, series, but it's not. Somehow, somebody made the decision to strip it down to a minimum. Add to it the fact that the whole series ends when things get more interesting and you have a failure. Sorry.
