Storyline

Over a decade ago, a group of scientists carried out experiments at the Tomb of Gilgamesh, the supposed resting place of the demigod subject of an ages-old myth. After the work at the "Heaven's Gate" facility was abruptly halted, a terrorist calling himself Enkidu set into motion an incident called "Twin X" which transformed Earth's sky into an enormous mirror. In the present day, two siblings named Tatsuya and Kiyoko Madoka are pursued by the yakuza for unpaid debts and are saved by the Gilgamesh, a team of young men and women who transform into hideous beasts. But when a second group of children, headed by the shadowy Countess of Werdenberg, "rescue" the siblings from the Gilgamesh using psychic powers of their own, Tatsuya and Kiyoko are forced to choose which side to believe in.

Excellent!
11 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The concept of outer space and battle mobile suits is severely wearing itself out, it's a breath of fresh air to see something new and original that does not revolve around machines. This anime does not have the flaws that most animes carry, with a new style and idea that makes this an original project.

Each episode gets right to it - There are no unnecessary scenes and everything is a contributing factor to the story being told. I enjoy how you can get to know the characters without straying from the plot to focus in on their personal lives. The timing is great, it does not stay on one scene for too long, keeping your interest and at the same time not cutting out any details.
