The original Mezzos (and Kite) were dark crime noir and almost sickening to watch, despite the excellent animation.

This is really neat storytelling in that they re-cast the characters as different people in a similar world. It's something done a lot in Japanese manga, I forgot the name, but it's equivalent to using the same actor in different fictions, like Harrison Ford going from Han Solo to Indiana Jones. The pink haired gun bunny is the central character, a backup thug is now a tech guy, a crime boss is now the head of the agency... Oh, and even minor characters have their parts. One girl who showed up for what, 3 seconds?, as a sicko's rape victim in "Kite" is now the 'shy girl learning to be tough' growth story sidekick.

And, yeah, it's a "TV Series" to get some bucks. So what? Neat show and a lot of fun. I ordinarily don't like 'crime/action' stuff that much, but make an exception here.

I saw a few episodes on t.v. and thought for the price of the series set why not get it and have found the series to be both entertaining and exciting. The story deals mostly with the trio of people who do whatever protection or detective job their hired to do the D.S.A (Otherwise known as the Danger-Service-Agency) the first is Kenichi Kurokawa a former police detective who runs the agency and tries to keep them from going under from all the debts, Tomohisa Harada is the technical wizard of the group who makes sure everything runs correctly, and finally Mikura Suzuki whose the fighter of the group whose skills both unarmed and armed is impressive. During one of their jobs they pickup a fourth member a young girl more of like Mikura's fan by the name of Asami Igarashi who the D.S.A trio are very protective of.
I've never seen the Mezzo movie so when a friend said he didn't like because it wasn't hardcore enough for him I asked why and he showed me the movie. I have to say the action through not as bloody was just as good the only thing I found the series did right was not put in the stupid sex scenes I don't think they were really needed in the movie and thankfully not put into the series. I don't mind some fan-service or some sprinkling of nudity in anime but if you just want to see anime sex scenes and don't care about the series or anime movie at all just buy some adult movies. The video is clear and sharp no fuzziness or streaming to worry about and the audio actors for both the subbed and dubbed version were great no complaints on that either. The only thing I wish is that the series were longer as it's only thirteen episodes and it just seemed to short I hope they make some more episodes later on for this entertaining series. So if you like the action, gun shooting, and hard-core female fighting anime this would be a good choice for you..

If you like Kite but it was a bit to much, You just may enjoy Mezzo. While made by most of the same team this was a TV series so it is much tamer..still not for children mom and dad. If Mezzo tickled your fancy you may just wanna look into the non tv version Mezzo Forte.

I don't know ones taste but the tv series and kite was exceptional drawn and had a rather dark story. I only reccomend looking into kite or mezzo forte if your stomach can take it.

I really enjoyed this anime, you will fall in love with all the characters. Great action and comedy. Only problem is that it ends pretty fast. After 3 nights it was over and i wanted more. They kinda made it seem like there will be a season 2 at the end. So lets wait and see. Great and funny anime. Great animation also.

I'll start by saying that this anime is too long. There are way too many episodes in this series. I know what you're thinking. Thirteen is the absolute lowest an anime can go without becoming an OVA. And that's exactly my point. The last few episodes is where the gold is in this anime, and really a lot of the episodes never followed any real story line. This would have been a great OVA, had they done some episode editing.

Case in point, the first episode is about ghosts (with another episode later on also being about a ghost), the second is about aliens, the third about biological disasters, another episode deals with androids, and another with virtual reality. Though it all follows in line with the concept of the anime, it doesn't progress the story line in any way. In fact, two of the episodes, the last two on the first disc, goes back to the much more dangerous and adult Mezzo Forte in the form of flashbacks. You'd think this a good thing, but the obvious difference between the two makes the Mezzo series look terrible beside its prologue, Mezzo Forte. The animation quality in Mezzo Forte was just too good.

That's not to say that this anime was all bad. The characters, for one, are hilarious. Mikura is the gunslinger/beautiful-chick that is common in this genre who gets a certain amount of pleasure out of the violence she dishes out. Kurokawa is an ex-cop who knows the darker side of his former job, and who also loves to eat noodles, and Harada is the brains of the bunch, who seems to have a crush on Mikura that never comes through in the story. Also, there are the weird Black Scissors, a gang of assassins and underworld thugs; little Asami, the protege; a mysterious assassin that was seemingly hired to kill Kurokawa, but by who?
