The story, though it admittedly has parts that don't make sense, is still interesting; it's about a gladiator named Layla who wanders around Mars with a little robot girl named Nei. Earth has been destroyed, humans can no longer reproduce, the moon somehow threatens to wipe out the planet, and in the middle of it all, the two main characters are being hunted down by a pair of immortals who rule over part of the planet.
It certainly has its slow parts, but the occasional fight scenes and some good-quality animation makes up for it all. The characters are kind of likable, but not entirely engaging. The packaging for this is awesome; it's a metal tin with all three discs securely fastened to either end of it. And it comes with four free film cells.
The whole series is like "Noir" mixed with "Iria," and although it may not be up to par with either one, I would reccomend it if you liked them. I'd also reccomend it if you enjoyed such things as "Madlax," "Dot Hack Sign," "Planetes," and maybe "Outlaw Star."
The series starts off feeling like you've missed out on some important details, like you should already know what's going on. It's possible that this started out as a manga and evolved into an animated version of it, I'm not sure. Maybe I've overlooked something somewhere, but after checking several websites across the Internet, I haven't found any other information on it so far.
The artwork in this is great. However, the storyline is a bit slow to develop and the ending was very unsatisfying for me. Flaws aside, it's still worthy of three stars.
The animation is great and the fight scenes and themes seem to be a tamed version of Fist of the North Star? With no extras of any significance and a theme song that is both irritating as is catching this is a nice DVD set at a great price for those just getting into anime.

Honestly, I do not find the anime and its ending sloppy. At first, you have to build up the scenario about the story, even though it does not give a lot of clue from the start. Read morePublished on April 3, 2008 by もりみずめ
Animation studio Bee Train and director Koichi Mashimo generally put out good shows, such as Madlax, Noir, and hack//Sign. This is one of their rare failures. Read morePublished on February 24, 2006 by Porcupine
