Poor Quality and Confusing Plot
15 March 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Being a big fan of Manga, I enjoyed Akira and Ghost in the shell and even the urotsukidoji series but this really isn't recommended. It has a great soundtrack for the opening and end credits but unfortunately, that was the only good thing about it.

The English dubbing was terrible. It sounded like they were having other characters speaking for them. Some characters spoke without their mouths even moving. The voicing on some of the characters made them sound annoying like that stupid of Erika from the second episode making it seem like a kids show. Its isn't however. I'm not sure if it is or not. It can be very scary but the violence are very mild with just some bloodless fighting.

The animation is also quite cheap and hard to understand what is going on. Some drawings last more than one split second. Some shots take a minute to get over while the character in the shot is talking. The futuristic background is very unoriginal. Its a place where we have all been before. I could tell that this world came from ghost in the shell.

The plot was the worst. The matrix (though a great film) was less confusing than this. There is no clear detail of how the virus was spread or what the virus can do other than turn people into monsters. The Cyclops villain was maybe only there for laughs because he was so unnecessary to the plot of all twelve episodes.

Overall this is a weak Manga anime with lack of plot, goofy humour which a complete waste of time. Strictly for kids 10 or over.
