Well...It tried, at least it didn't fail, but it didn't really succeed either...
20 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm surprised there isn't a lot of buzz about this show. Apparently it is based on a 12 or so volume long manga, which adds some credibility. The show is solid, but solid doesn't really get you far all the time, especially in a science fiction romance action drama.

The plot of the show follows the kids of three gangs in what is a virtual Shibuya, Tokyo, as well as Ema, the local superpowered rogue, and her reincarnated lover Tsuyoshi. The whole substance of the show revolves around the undefined mysteries of this particular virtual Shibuya, and because it is only 12 episodes, this is an easy bite, for what is actually a strong story.

The Characters are well defined, however, terribly miscast in some cases, like the lead Tsuyoshi who is a 15 year old boy who is actually play by a 17 year old girl, and that is very distracting. However, on the flip-side, there is the main antagonistic force, known only as "Peace" played by Mark Musashi, who with his distinct American accent, and eccentric dialog stands out the most among the cast.

Music and audio is solid, nothing soundtrack worthy, but nothing you'll complain about after it is over.

Writing gets the job done, 'nuff said.

All in all, it is a worth while 5 or so hours of entertainment. Could've been better, and could've been worse.
