Appleseed XIII

The world, devastated by a long global conflict, is ruled from the vast city of Olympus by the General Administration Agency. This Agency is run by human-hybrid clones known as Bioroid, made from the genes of the best and brightest.
Former Los Angeles S.W.A.T. officer Deunan Knute and her cyborg partner Briareos, both become residents of Olympus after being scouted by ES.W.A.T., a special counter-terrorist division of the Global Police.
One such terrorist group which they fight is the Human Liberation Front, which attacked Olympus in the midst of the launch of the Ark Program, a plan to entrust the future of humanity to Bioroids. However, subsequent investigations will reveal that someone else had been manipulating the Front from behind the scenes.

Reviews

Michael Eh?

CG has come along way. So much so that it seamless with the story and doesn't over power it... or have we grown use to it? otherwise, the story doesn't stand out too much nor really progress the plot if there is one to be made in this take of a classic.

Kimiko Calaway

Very well developed stroyline, though it still leaves you feeling a bit detached from the characters from the visual design (which is, none the less, refreshing and unique.) The surreal colours keeps your focus to the screen unwavering. Highly recommended.

Corbyn

An interesting and exciting re-imagining of the franchise. However, little of the past is explained and this would be confusing to someone new to Appleseed.

I enjoyed the anime.

you should play Spongebob. Ya bro!

Daniel

I enjoyed seeing Fairy Tail. I also liked Break Blade though I haven't seen the other shows.

Eric

I liked watching the various animes although I did not know what was happening.

Maxy

I reserve judgement.

humanbean

very generous production values, of course, but Deunan is rather annoying. additionally, they REALLY hammer away at the allusion to the Labors of Hercules. i'll pass on it.

Doug

The personal drama is contrived, the political stuff seems inane, and since I'm no fan of mecha, the action doesn't interest me either. So I'm not likely to bother with this again.
