In an alternate reality, the Cold War never ended and has continued on for 140 years. As a result, the world we knew was divided into two factions: the West Block, and the East Block. As the War proceeds, the tension between the two factions, as well as the amount of nuclear weapons they have, rise higher and higher. Mylene Hoffman/009-1 is a beautiful female cyborg who is a spy for the West Block. With her highly developed fitness skills with a cyborg body surpassing an average woman, Mylene takes action in various missions issued by her superiors. Written by J LeGault

Fun spy series
3 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I hadn't given any thought to this series till I saw that it was in Funimation's YouTube channel, then I thought I'd give it a go. I'm glad that I did as it was enjoyable. It might not be the most gripping series but the lead character, Miléne Hoffman AKA agent 009-1 is a good character who draws the viewer into her world. Set in a future where the cold war never ended 009-1 is a cyborg agent working for the west; each of the early episodes sees her going on a mission to thwart the dastardly East, towards the end we get a three part story where it is clear that the West's behaviour isn't perfect either. Surprisingly for a short action series there are quite a few touching moments and we see out heroine take actions that will have consequences for ordinary people.

The animation isn't as good as many other series but the style grew on me and the characters had a distinctive look. While there is no real nudity in the series we see 009-1 wearing nothing but a strategically placed sheet. More than once she beds her target, some viewers might think this goes to far but I thought it was no more than we see in a James Bond film; it just has a female protagonist rather than a man... although Bond doesn't have machine-gun breasts. Most of the actors did a good job although the English agent did have a "Cor blimey Mary Poppins" accent which was difficult not to laugh at. Normally I watch anime in Japanese with English subtitles but as that wasn't available I watched the dub and still enjoyed it.
