The Better Anime Out There
Sharon P. Guthrie | 09/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When I heard that my friend watched this a while ago, I decided to pick it up and see what it was about. I was reluctant at first, thinking it would be a cheezy knock-off of some anime I've already seen. But at the end of the first episode, I was practically begging for more, pushing the next button for the next episode.

The main plot is that a virus is spreading across the world, known as "Algernon". Akamatsu Industries at this time is trying to find a way to stop the virus before it contaminates the entire world (some symptoms you may not pick up on right away)! Keita, the protagonist, is dragged into this conflict by getting himself lost in the Bottom World, where he meets the Betterman, who takes on a form of a dragon after eating a mysterious seed.

I would flush out more of the plot, but then I would be spoiling most of the fun! But I must say, even though the animation was on par with Escaflowne, the storyline just about surpassed Neon Genesis Evangelion (in confusion, that is. Shoot, it sort of has the ending similar to "End of Evangelion"!). The characters are presented very nicely, the story is incredible, although sometimes confusing, and they don't overexaggerate on the action, which some anime tends to do unintentionally.

If you feel like sparing thirty or so dollars on a fun, cutesy anime with lots of over-sized women anatomies and simple things like that, this anime probably isn't for you. However, if you want to get involved in a story that may change your way of thinking for a couple of days, then I would definately recommend this.

NOTE: You may suffer brain exhaustion by watching this anime in one sitting, take it a couple of episodes at a time!"
