Imagine waking after spending more than two decades in suspended animation. You awaken to a world more terrifying than your worst nightmare. A world where human beings are hunted down by giant insect-like creatures called the Blue. Welcome to Earth in the year 2031…a time when the planet is no longer ours. Earth’s very survival now rests in your hands.

Let me begin by saying that Blue Gender is a creative, well-done, edge-of-your-seat anime series geared towards a mature audience; Blue Gender is certainly one of the more unique apocalyptic, military sci-fi animes in my opinion. That said, if you want a synopsis of the show, you can easily find those elsewhere. Here is the breakdown of the actual DVD set:

Overall Breakdown:
-Total Running Time: 750 minutes
-Languages: English & Japanese
-Subtitles: English
-Region: 1, 2, & 4 NTSC
-Format Ratio: 4:3
-Sound: English 5.1 Surround, Japanese 5.1 Surround, Dolby Digital

Disc 1:
-Episodes 1 through 7
-Episode 1 Commentary with commentary from Laura Bailey, Eric Vale (Eric Johnson), and Christopher Sabat (voice director and voice of Keith)

Disc 2:
-Episodes 8 through 14

Disc 3:
-Episodes 15 through 20

Disc 4:
-Episodes 21 through 26

Disc 5:
-"Blue Gender: The Warrior" movie
-Original Trailer (US trailer)
-Rough Sketch Collection: collection of pre-production sketches
-Blue File 1: profiles of the various types of blue
-Blue File 2: more profiles of the various types of blue
-"Break Free" Extended Version music video (the English opening theme song)
-"Love Taught Me" Extended Version music video (the English closing theme song)
-"Tokihanate" Remix music video (the Japanese opening theme song)
-Armor Shrike File: profile of the various types of armored shrikes

3.0 out of 5 stars Big bugs attack May 2, 2011
In the future, civilization has collapsed, because the earth is infested by big, big bugs.

It sounds like the stuff of utter mind blowing disaster, but thankfully "Blue Gender" succeeds in being a fairly intelligent, intricate sci-fi anime. Lots of horror, giant bugs and a fish-out-of-water hero who manages to be fairly interesting as he becomes a seasoned warrior, but the characters develop by leaps and bounds -- and the ending is completely out of left field, apparently in an attempt to be bleak and "deep."

Yuji Kaido was an ordinary teenager in the not-too-distant future, until he came down with a strange disease. The only hope for a cure is to be put into cryogenic sleep.

A few decades later, he awakes to a whole new Earth -- sparsely populated, civilization overturned, and with every continent overrun by hideous enormous insects called the Blue. Then two enormous mecha piloted by humans appear, and after many dangers Yuji is taken by a chilly soldier named Marlene to Second Earth, a space station where humanity is organizing a fight against the Blue.

But Yuji soon learns that life is dangerous -- not just because of the Blue, but because of the militarized humans on Second Earth, who see him just as a sample to be used. After Yuji vanishes, Marlene begins a desperate quest to find him, even if it gets her in hot water. And when she does find him, they both discover the secret of Yuji and the Sleepers, and why they may be the key to destroying the Blue once and for all. Except of course things aren't that simple.

"Blue Gender" has a pretty generic sci-fi concept behind it, the sort of thing you'd probably see on a Sci Fi original movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite anime. July 15, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is my favorite anime series. It's hard to explain why, but I'll try.

The series itself is nothing special, Giant robots ( 1-2 stories tall ), giant bugs ( height varies, lol ), giant battles, and a giant and involved plot with amazing characters.
The show itself is a strong 3-4 but the characters in this show feel very real, and are well developed within the story. By the end you really feel for the characters and you really remember them. When I first saw this show I was 13-14, and I still recalled nearly all of what the characters were like when I bought this only a few weeks ago, if I can still recall a character and his emotions after 5+ years I think that's saying something for the shows character development.
The plot itself is a new flavor of a post-apocolyptic world, The blue ( giant insects ) have taken over the earth and humanity fights to reclaim their world, and that's about it. The show revolves around this plot, which alone would be entertaining, but with the strong and interesting characters it's amazing.
The main character, Yuji, wakes up from a stasis ( long sleep ) and is thrust into this decayed world, it is through his eyes most of the story is told, and it is through him that the show hits its stride. Yuji, is an incredibly complex and interesting character.
I will not explain anymore, because I don't wish to spoil anything, but I will say this, I am not an anime fan but this was amazing on many levels and I would suggest it to anyone that likes science fiction or action.

It is truly a 5 star series, buy it and you won't regret it! :]

This is a great series with lots of excitement but also plenty of internal angst. War, political intrigue, and science gone wrong what more could you ask for.
