It's always darkest right before the dawn -- or so they say.

And that is certainly the case with the final four episodes of "Noein," a unique mix of quantum physics, sci-fi and preteen adventure. All the characters encounter the horrifying potential of their future -- and the truth about their shadowy enemy.

Karasu, Haruka and Yuu are left wandering through the dreamlike timespace of Shangri-la. As they rest, Karasu reveals the terrible face of Haruka's alter ego -- and is interrupted by the spectral Noein. Haruka reluctantly goes with him, if he agrees not to harm Yuu or Karasu.

And then Haruka's house is swept, Wizard-of-Oz-style, into Shangri-la -- with Atori and the kids inside. Haruka is forced to watch as Noein reveals the possible futures of Miho, Ai and Isami -- Ai loses her leg and her soccer dreams, Isami is disfigured in a gang fight, and Miho crumbles from constant bullying. The three kids face being lost in these potential futures, unless they can reunite.

But then Noein reveals his most horrifying secret, and the traumatic past that is leading him to unite all timespaces. As the timespaces collide and the universe starts to unravel, the last of the Dragon Knights are attacked by Shangri-la's ships. And Haruka and Yuu must find the strength to stop Noein forever...

There's a lot to wrap up in these last four episodes, and there's not a wasted minute in any of them. Unlike many series, this one ends with a perfect blend of characterization, action and drama -- and leaves most of the plot threads nicely tied in a complex bow.

Even the animation seems more impressive in this one -- mysterious lights, contorting pale bodies, a clock-face floor and a glowing idyll with a rotten heart.

Here is a truth about anime: The endings can be incredibly frustrating.

I say that as a long time anime fan. It is a rare anime series that ends as good or better than it began and even the great ones can leave some fans going, "What the heck??" or at the very least, split in opinion.

Noein isn't one of those anime. The conclusion is as satisfying as the journey.

I won't go into details since the previous review already adds many details.

Suffice it to say that this is a series that once it is started, it is hard to stop watching. The scriptwriters did a fine job at creating and sustaining the mystery of what is happening over several dimensions and what I found most amazing was that they were able to keep my attention from wandering when it delved into the more complex ideas of parallel universes and quantum physics in a remarkably comprehensible and palatable way, even for the non-techie like me.

But it is the characters who drive the story and this is one story that keeps track of its cast. Yuu, Haruka and Karasu may be the center focus but it is fabulous to watch a story that doesn't ignore the secondary characters and their fates because that is the story and how being recognized is part of one's existence. My favorite characters were actually Ai and Esami and it was gratifying that I got to see them develop as the series went on right up to the end.

The art style is very unique and very non-standard anime, but it works. Special mention goes to the action sequences, especially the fight sequences were incredible.

The English cast does a fine job of voice acting. Crispin Freeman gets an additional kudo for his work as Karasu and more.

Noein will go down as one of the classics in Anime. It's stunning and breathtaking to look at. You'll have to catch your breath a couple of times watching this series! I'm not going to give any of the story away. But IMO if you like Science fiction you'll want to see Noein.
The characters are powerful and charming and the dub cast is great!
Noein is Anime at its finest!

In the future a war is raging between inhabitants of alternate dimensions. Haruka and Yuu are middle school friends. The war spills over into their dimension. Soldiers tell Haruka that she has the power to end the war. The soldier that tells her this is the future version of Yuu. Dimensions are crossed and alternate versions of the characters are encountered. Can these children avoid their tragic future and change their destiny. Or will they be victims of a tragic fate.

My god this anime is good. The animation is great, the soundtrack is cool, and the characters are very compelling. Noein has a very complicated plot. Sometimes it's a little heavy, but it's great and brilliantly written. There may be a few plot holes, but it's kinda hard to pinpoint because of the story's complexity. This anime also has a lot of good drama in it. The drama keeps you interested and gives you a reprieve from the heavy and complex story.

Don't be intimidated by all the physics and theoretical supposition in this anime. Just enjoy the beautifully crafted love story. I definitely recommend Noein to any anime fan. It's amazing and a steal for the price.
