This show is amazingly done and spellbinding. i would suggest to to any anime lovers. While the description makes it sound like a lame "scientific/robot" anime show, but it is not. this shows puts so much effort into adding emotional appeal and character development. i love this. Please give it a try.
In the year 2100, Dr. Amami is a scientist working in the field of alternative energy, who at the beginning of the series is on the verge of a major breakthrough in the area of "Rynax energy". His daughter Kurau accompanies him to the lab on her twelfth birthday, where an experiment goes horribly wrong and she is struck by a bolt of this energy, which disperses her into lights.
When she reforms, it is found that her body has been taken over by two Rynax, who are actually sentient life forms and not just a form of energy. However, one of the Rynax is too weak to awaken. The awakened Rynax takes on Kurau's name and identity, and though her newfound superhuman abilities make her a subject of interest for scientists, Kurau manages to live a relatively normal life. Ten years later, the second Rynax awakens and emerges as a twelve-year-old girl, whom Kurau names Christmas. The two look and interact very much like sisters.

"This is an amazing anime, so it's a shame that ADV hasn't released it until now; three years after they got the license. To give a little bit of background, this was made by Studio BONES, the studio behind Full Metal Alchemist, Scrapped Princess, Wolf's Rain, and Cowboy Bebop: The Movie. This anime was my favorite thing made by them, hands down.
The editorial review is incomplete so here's the deal:
Set one hundred years in the future, Kurau Amane is the daughter of a scientist on the moon who's been experimenting on the revolutionary, newly discovered "Rynax" energy. On her birthday, Kurau goes to work with him, but something goes wrong, the energy breaks containment and flashes out, hitting Kurau and disintegrating her. Although she reforms, she now identifies herself as "Rynax", revealing that the energy was sentient. More pressing, although retaining Kurau's memories and experiences, she is unable to leave the body until the appearance of her "pair", who was injured in the experiment and is resting.
10 years pass, and "Kurau" using her special energy related powers has become a top mercenary on Earth. However, despite the long time for recovery, her pair has yet to appear. Not only that but she seems to be under a lot of surveillance...
Graphically astounding, a fantastic soundtrack, and an action-filled but dramatic plot, this is an amazing anime. It will regularly make you shed tears out of the level of sadness sometimes, so be aware that it's a little more emotional than usual fare."
