Excellent - Ignore the "fan service" if you can
18 May 2007 | by (Asheville, North Carolina) – See all my reviews

This series, along with its sequel "Misaki Chronicles," is an excellent meditation on existence, memory and human nature, wrapped up in a story about horrific ghouls invading from another dimension. And while there are plenty of ghoul attacks, creepy atmospherics and some bloodshed, the heart of the story remains the relationships forged between the women of the Seraphim unit.

The CGI is a little clunky, but the show makes up for it with atmosphere and intelligence.

And, no, you can't forget "them." This series has the dumbest "Fan Service" I've ever encountered. Every women in the show (except the android, who has the body of a ten-year-old) has an enormous chest. No one ever comments on them, or even reacts to them; this just seems to be the normal state of affairs. But since the show lacks any romance or comedy, the decision to design the women this way just seems perverse.

If you can ignore "them" (and admittedly it's difficult to do so), give the show a try. The characters are likable and very three-dimensional (in more than the obvious sense). Recommended.
