5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best anime series!, November 14, 2004
This review is from: Texhnolyze - Inhumane & Beautiful (Vol. 1) - With Collector's Box (DVD)
This is one of the best anime series! And it has yet to conclude! Up to Volume 4 of 6 has been released, and five is set for a late November release. This is an anime to watch with the lights turned off and when you are ready to concentrate on what you are watching.
This anime is slow-paced, but certainly never boring, especially when you come to know the characters more. This anime has a purpose, none of the story elements are contrived or used as filler, and when you watch an episode you feel you have moved further and deeper into the story from the last episode. For example, by volume 4, Ichise, the main character, becomes a powerful member of the Organo gang, and you are capable of understanding his position and remembering how he got there from his origin as a limbless(texhnolyzeless) street scum. You feel as if you are moving with the characters(especially Ichise). The further into this anime you get the more fascinating and involving it gets.
The aesthetic of this anime is very dark, brooding and muted. The colours don't stray far from black, grey and a dirty brown, and they tend to bleed into eachother in sublte and watercolourish ways.
I am very eager for the release of volume 5! Will they be able to defeat this new "ideology"?! Why are people disappearing and changing their attitudes so severely? Have they joined that blue-haired guys "ideology"? And just who is that blue-haired guy?
If you want a smart, adult anime, with political intrigue, emotional involvement then you have found it. Oh, and politically powerful, samurai-sword wielding men in business suits is super very cool!
