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.
Hits the mark easily
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Kurau Phantom Memory possesses all the qualities of a great story, and its very likeable characters somehow manage to convey humor and drama in a way that many other anime shows fall short of. It is a story set in a bright world with a few dark shadows, and despite the obstacles that confront Kurau and her newfound sister, Christmas, their bond stays as strong as ever. This story is rich with emotion, and you'll fall for the characters right away."
