A lot of anime can be classified as strange, but this one really takes the biscuit. A young lady who is a perfumer by day, but a top secret agent at night is forced to take on an artificial lifeform as a partner. Together they must protect the free world from such menaces as bikini clad assassins, city-destroying satellites and brainwashing pop groups. (So THAT'S how Westlife were so popular !!) All this however, takes second place to the extraordinary amount of pantie shots of the main female characters throughout the series, we literally get one every 20 seconds. You really start to wonder about the state of mind of the directors, as they rarely miss a chance to go upskirt even in the middle of an totally unrelated scene. This quickly becomes very obtrusive, and detracts from what is otherwise a well animated and entertaining production. The voiceovers are perfect, and there is a quirky underlying humour that makes the whole thing very appealing. I have the first DVD of the starter four episodes in this series and will probably have a look at the others.. but please lads, a bit less lingerie next time! 6/10
