(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is a strange series to watch all the way through.
It has an all-star production team, such as the character designer from Saber Marionette and music producer from Utena. Even the opening, ending, and insert songs are by famous singers. The back story is complex, and you would even sympathize with the "enemies" by the end.
So what went wrong? First, the show seems to be constantly searching for an audience. Almost every demographic under 30 seems to be targeted by the show at one time or another. Second, the pacing is extremely erratic. A lot of episodes are spent not progressing much, while all the story is packed into a few episodes. Lastly, the DVD mastering is really bad. This is a 1998 TV show, so there should not be lines, snow, and flickers like an 70s reel.
Overall, it is still an above average show. The story is original, the characters are well developed, and the music is great. Just try to not let the "intended audience" switching throw you off. Plus, the complete set for the price of less than two volumes is a steal."
