OK but nothing exceptional

"This anime is somewhat short for a series. Having only 13 episodes, a lot of content is glossed over and barely sufficient depth is given to character development. To those that prefer action over content, such a loss is a boon, but to those that prefer substance over flash, it is a major determent. As to the occasional action scenes, they contain really nothing notable visually, even though this is a relatively new anime. Computer Graphics are primarily used throughout, but there really are no scenes that will make you say "wow, I can't believe how real/great that looks!" Concerning the plot, while being somewhat novel, heart-warming, and intriguing, it unfortunately offers little lasting impact. All in all, this series is worth watching and renting, but has little to no replay value -- an essential element to most anime fans. At least the series is available at a great price.
Note: This review compares this series to the likes of Cowboy Bebop, Trigun, Last Exile, Escaflowne, Hellsing, Rahxephon, and Neon Genies Evangelion.
