Simply amazing!
28 April 2010 | by See all my reviews

There are actually seven 25min long episodes and a 6min prologue. I don't understand why this anime hasn't been publicised more by the studios or even by the American company which holds a licence and released a blu-ray version in the states.

It was created as promotional material for a noodles brand in Japan (which the characters regularly eat), but is still one of the best animes i have seen, comparable to Akira but without being as confusing in places.

Keeping the look of the traditional hand-drawn animes but still remaining modern, FREEDOM is a visual masterpiece, and includes character design from Akira's Katsuhiro Otomo. I cant decide if this would have been better off as one long movie or if the episode "cliffhangers" make you want to watch more.

You will have to see it for yourselves!
