This is one of THE ORIGINAL cyberpunk anime. You can't accuse a story of being cliché when it came out before the cliché was commonplace.

Never intended to be a series, it is an OVA, two episodes long, based on volumes one and two of the manga. The anime is simply giving audiences a taste of a much longer story, providing animated action, voices, and a great soundtrack to the already well known characters and plots of the manga. Taken for what it is, this is a brilliant adaptation of one of the best stories in its genre.

The animation is typical of the Japanese style, but despite the economical frame rates, the action is solid, and the design and composition are superb.

This is a must see for anyone who considers themselves a fan of classic anime, and if you like it, you can continue the story in the manga.
