2012/03/25 Worst(-3 pnt) [Original Japanese review]

It is a work hard to evaluate. It is useless.

[good point]
I can not think of it. However, it was said that it was not the worst work for me, as it was once seen to the end.
But I love talks about robots and cybokes, so this is the only reason I could see it until the end. Apart from this there is not a good point in this work.

[Bad point]
We have a lot. The story is not good, the picture is useless (same level as the previous game), the battle scene is chubby (just the mechanics are moving around, the battle drag and force are not at all), and all the useless points.

[Comprehensive evaluation]
Shiro Masamune's image of the same name comics. Masamune Shirow's manga is a part that stimulates SF fantasies such as "It will be interesting if technology progresses like this", it is all that it is all, it is a writer gaining cult popularity in that respect I think.
On the other hand, the degree of completion of other parts is low, characters that are too dry to become familiar, hard to understand stories, and very difficult to attach. Actually, even if I read Shouji Masamune's comic, I feel that "weakness of storytelling is wrapped in smoke with an array of esoteric settings".
However, since it is highly appreciated that the service spirit that makes it easy to make use of the SF settings that anyone knows is highly appreciated, it is understandable as a production intention to supplement the shortcomings of Shiro Masamune's work and to visualize it in a form that makes good use of it.
And, in the animated version, it is a translation that arranges characters strangely, but it can hardly be said that this is living well. It feels redundant.
I am also bringing myths to the foundation of the story (only the original is diverting the name to the last), it can not be said that this is living well.
Furthermore, the omission of the episode is so numerous that there are too many parts that the viewer must supplement with imagination. It is possible to supplement it rationally by supplementing with imagination, but only what is not refreshed after it finishes.

If Masamune Shirow's manga is on the same level as storytelling, this animation is the same person level in all respects.
