Casshern Sins

Plot: In a world that is dying, the few remaining humans and androids are all succumbing to "The Ruin". The only one who seems immune is Casshern, who has lost his memory and is hunted down by those who want his immortality and those who blame him for killing their savior, Luna, and thus causing the Ruin. As Casshern searches for answers, he encounters many who face the Ruin with strength... (B)

Characters: B

Art & Animation: Madhouse close to its finest. A+

Voice Acting: A

Music: A

Objectionable Content: Blood, profanity, suggestive themes (one episode has nudity and sexual material -- felt like drug tripping??)

Other: Best described as a "dark ballet". Artfully executed, but not a light watch AT ALL. Also, I'm taking off points for the half-baked ending.

Also, it's sort of tied to the older OVA, "Casshan, Robot Hunter". The OVA makes more sense. (First episode has partial nudity.)

Overall Score: B+

Recommendation: 2/5
