Okay, I have to admit that I was intrigued by the concept of a female spy who flashed her panties a lot while gunning down the bad guys - er
girls. But having watched all twelve episodes I kinda miss it and
want more. A second series would be nice.
The animation is superb and the music is good. The plot takes a while to get going, but you become attached to the main characters (Nagica and Lila) and become intrigued by the artificial humans and Nagica's missions to retrieve them.
This series has a distinct personality which encompasses the style of the animation together with the personalities of all the characters. It becomes almost like watching a soap. You know exactly where you are and you can just turn off your brain and enjoy the action.
I just attempted to watch Akira and gave up on it as impenetrable and extremely irritating. By comparison, Najica is light, entertaining fluff. It helps if you're male and enjoy lots of crotch shots of young girls, but there's a lot more to it than that.
As an aside, listen to the commentary from the American voice artistes. They say very little about the animation, but they're a scream.
