Editorial Reviews

2225 AD. An act of sabotage has sent a space station plummeting towards a dense plasma phenomena known as the Sea of Geduld. With only hours to spare before the collapse of the entire station, a group of teens, training on-board the ship will seek safety aboard the Ryvius, an interstellar spacecraft hidden deep inside the station. With the adult crew and instructors killed, these young astronauts must rely on their training, courage, and most importantly… each other. Prepare for the journey home.

* From SUNRISE studios (Mobile Fighter G Gundam, Cowboy Bebop, Escaflowne)
* An intense science fiction series in the vein of the classic novel 'Lord of the Flies'
* The second sci-fi thriller by director Goro Taniguchi - s-CRY-ed (July) and Infinite Ryvius (September)

5.0 out of 5 stars The best anime series I've seen in years December 6, 2003
I was introduced to this show long before it was licensed and after the first five episodes I was hooked. There is a bit of a knowledge hurdle getting into the series because there is a lot of information to digest about the social structure and the physics of the solar system, now altered from the one we know from real life by the Geduld Phenomenon.
However this series strength is in the characters. Infinite Ryvius features an ensemble cast of potentially dozens as 487 students are stranded in the first few episodes of the series, however there are a main handful that the series focuses on and surprisingly every major character is given fair air time and no one ever feels neglected for a cast of this size. Even several of the minor characters show up often enough over the course of several episodes for viewers to get a feel for them and their personalities.
Though there is action for those who must have their ship battles, this is more of a relationship-based series than a comabtive one. Each external conflict (the students vs. their unknown enemy) is significant and plays out over more than one episode, but the internal struggles between the students and within themselves are what drives the plot from story arc to story arc. All the cast members grow and change tremedously over the course of the series as they deal with the unusual circumstances into which they have been thrust. It's important to remember that unlike the teenagers in most sci-fi anime series, the cast of Infinite Ryvius are non-combatants and were never trained to fight for a military. This makes their predicament all the more painful for them to deal with, and there are none of the traditional heroes who come in and save the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow and another wow May 1, 2006
I was slightly interested in this show and so when I could've gotten the 1st DVD for free I did and it was totally worth it! This show is not what I'd call action packed, but it has some of the best character development I've seen in a long time. Also the story, which only begins to blossom in the 1st DVD, is well crafted and highly interesting. If you're a fan of well done tv shows, anime or not, this is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth watching! August 29, 2004
By ana101
I picked this up expecting a typical dumbed-down angsty superhero-y space mecha anime. I was VERY pleasantly surprised. Not only does this series have some very decent animation (characters don't just cry with tears running out of their eyes--their faces actually distort with sadness) but the character development is quite good. While I liked all the characters (with the exception of Kozue, who annoyed me), the creators portrayed both sides of the characters. For example: the main character/narrater, Kouji Aiba, has several strengths-unfortunately, the ability to clearly see his surroundings isn't one of them. Also, he's a bit of a whiner. I saw the reference to 'Lord of the Flies' in an earlier review and while I do agree that there are some similarities, I enjoyed 'Infinite Ryvius' far more than I enjoyed the book. In the end, I felt pity for and was happy for the characters of the anime; at the end of LOTF, I threw the book against a wall. If your interest in anime runs towards psychology and relationships, this is a definite must-watch!
