This is one of those series I heard a lot about when it debuted but never got around to watching it. I finally downloaded and started watching it last night, finished the first three episodes. So far, so cool. It's been a long time since I've watched a hardcore sci-fi anime. The art is nearly cinema quality, espeically the first episode. Everything is richly colored and detailed. I especially like Iria's character design. She's not only a hottie, but her outfit is cool and somewhat unique. Not your typical fanservice anime heroine. The story isn't too shabby either. This is a short series so I'm curious to see how it all wraps up in the end, and how disappointing it will probably be.
