Exciting girls-with-guns anime
8 October 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Photographer Maria Osawa is sent to Shanghai along with reporter Minoru Minorikawa to cover an upcoming anti-terrorism conference; on her first day in the city Maria is attacked unknown assassins. She is saved by a grey haired girl named Canaan; a girl she has met before! It turns out Canaan's rival, Alphard, it planning to attack the conference along with her colleagues Liang Qi and Cummings. Alphard and her Snake organisation plan to use the UA synthetic virus to attack the conference. One would have expected this attack to be at the end of the series but it takes place fairly early on and then Canaan, Maria and a few others head to the village where a version of UA was tested and here they must confront Alphard and her allies once again.

This was an enjoyable thirteen episode series with plenty of action with little time being wasted on exposition… thankfully this didn't lead to any real confusion. Canaan is a great action-girl and the way her synesthesia helped her fighting was interesting. The villains were suitably fun; Liang Qi was amusingly over the top and clearly insane and Alphard was the opposite being fairly calm and collected; these two villains weren't totally unsympathetic and was surprised to find myself caring about them more than most TV baddies. There is plenty of action throughout the series and this is well animated and pretty exciting. For the most part this is a fairly serious series but there are some good laughs to be had; most of these are provided Yun Yun; a girl who ends up with the group. Not all of the questions are resolved and there is a degree of openness to the ending but if you don't mind that I recommend this series.

These comments are based on watching the series in Japanese with English subtitles.
