OK, but not great...
24 March 2010 | by joelherroSee all my reviews

Seems like the other viewers must have liked this more than me, for the average to be that high (there has only been 18 votes, this may change)...i'm not saying this was bad, it just wasn't great...the animation is good, and the CGI fits in well, but the storyline seems like its been done before and better...

Set in an unknown time period, as far as i could tell, since he has guns, some that look modern, others way old, plus other dudes use swords, and his clothes look kinda modern where everyone else is wearing old gear...in an unknown country, where the town/city the hero comes from has been destroyed, so he's now a kind of Ronin...guy with powers (not much in this dude's case) goes around righting wrongs...he's not a particularly likable bloke either...I'm not sure if this is the start of a series, but it would make more sense if it is...maybe if each week here went somewhere and fought a bunch of baddies with different powers and he gained more along the way, it might be really cool, but with just 85 mins, there's no character development, not much fighting, and then its over...

So, watch it if u are a huge anime fan, or have tons of spare time, but don't lose if any sleep if u miss it...
