Pretty good sci-fi/horror anime
24 June 2007 | by ruggamuffdivinSee all my reviews

This is definitely a bit of an overlooked anime. Its not the best of its kind, but definitely worth seeing for fans of both Kawajiri and this style of animation (which basically is him when you boil it down). If you liked any other of Kawajiri's projects you should be able to get into this too. I would place it close to wicked city, Cyber city oedo 808 and goku midnight eye, both style-wise and in its general mood. But you will find some more general elements in it as well. I find it better than wicked city almost as good as goku & cyber city The story is pretty straightforward, and not incredibly complex, but still it works well with he overall dark mood and atmosphere of the film. Soundtrack is imo incredible and well-fitting with the dark animations, characters are also good considering the shortness of it all..and very importantly to me the dialogue isn't too cheesy (from subtitles at least, i don't know Japanese). It doesn't really bother me that it only runs short of an hour, cause it makes it more dynamic i think.

Overall i say 7 out of 10 for this kind of anime
