fun action comedy/parody
2 December 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

this was definitely a fun anime...great animation, fun characters, interesting story and i really liked how they parody other animes...

'Needless' are people with special powers living in 'the black spot', areas left devastated after world war 3...Simeon pharmaceuticals is hunting and killing these needless, with their ruthless leader Adam Arclight and his group of evil needless being stronger than everyone else...the only ones strong enough to oppose Simeon pharamceuticals is Adam Blade and his group of good needless...

the best thing about this show is how they rip off and pay out clichés from other animes...its funny, bloody and full of swearing...i liked it...check it out
