In the future, Tokyo is a desolate place. After a massive earthquake, the city struggles to survive. The old city is in ruins. Acid rain falls from the sky. And worst of all, evil beings called Lucifer Hawk have invaded Earth to destroy humanity. Earth s last line of defense is a secret branch of the Police, the AMP. Its members include the psychic, Yuki, the cyborg Kiddy, the Shinto priestess Nami, the visionaire Lebia, and their chief, the mysterious Rally Cheyenne. But they re about to get a new and powerful new member. Katsumi Liqueur, a woman with strange powers and a dark past, is about to join the fight. The battle for Earth is in the hands of these powerful women...but will that be enough?

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Story, Average Execution July 23, 2013
Kia Asamiya's story of the Attack Mystical Police (AMP for short) details the lives of several gifted woman who fight supernatural beings in a future Tokyo. While the team is made up of several talented ladies the main focus is on Katsumi. Silent Möbius was a quite high profile property in the early 1990s and the motion picture which was made during that period had high production values given the era. The movie was a very condensed story and did not really scratch the surface of Silent Möbius' rich world.

I was excited about the Silent Mobius series as there was so much story o be told. Produced in the early 2000s I did not expect the animation quality or the motion picture but was very disappointed to see the series was very cheaply animated with a low frame rate. There are lots of long scenes panned across backgrounds as characters talk and in some cases reused cels.

The story is good and uses the manga as its bases although the character designs have been changed or altered in some cases. I enjoyed this anime but only as fan of the original source material. I imagine viewers new to Silent Möbius would be turned off by the low production values in the animation.

A great story made mediocre by bad animation and average voice acting.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm very disappointed. October 19, 2012

Silent Mobius is a story about a team of women that fight monsters. It's like a lame version of Bubblegum Crisis. The things I don't like about this anime are:
1: The animation is bad. It's an older series, but the technology for way bTetter quality existed at the time.
2: The story had a good initial idea, but was not carried out in an interesting manner.
3: The characters. There were several characters with potential, but they weren't developed well enough to make you care about them.
4: Bad voice acting. The characters didn't have any emotions visible in their speech.

Adding all these flaws together I was very disappointed by this series. If you're still curious try watching it on youtube. Definitely don't buy w/o watching first. There are people out there that like this series. This is just my opinion. So you may want to give it a shot. I hope you like it.

I only saw a few episodes subbed and thought this would be a good anime set for my collection sadly that was a horrible mistake. First off I do want to say that half of the English voice actors aren't bad I heard them from other anime that were better than this one the other half unfortunately were either sub-standard to just plain pathetic the sounded like they just read the lines from the script with no motivation or feelings at all. The Japanese voice actors did a better job for all the characters for the series putting feeling and emotion into their acting to bad it was wasted for this series. The story is pretty much what we see with most anime the world is in peril with just a few people with unusual abilities to stand against the horde of evil supernatural invaders. That pretty much is the story and plot the action is either to slow or just plain boring there are some few battle scenes that are good
but those scenes are so few and far that it doesn't make up for having to watch the rest of the episode in pure boredom. The video is also sub-par
looking like it was copied over from a vhs tape for most of the series the music is also pretty sub-par trying to make most of the battles exciting but failing miserably. So do yourself a favor if you're looking for either a supernatural anime or action mecha anime your better
off passing this one from the list....
