A great bargain for a full 26 episode series!

"There are those who complain about the animation quality in this series, but we're not talking about a big budget movie. If you want to see skimpy animation look at His and Her Circumstance or other series that ran out of funds. The animation here is quite passable.
The story line is very good. Somewhat original, together with the character development, and the plot twists this stays watchable throughout the series. Characters I think are important to care about, at least in a series longer than a few episodes. I got bored with a series called Brain Powered about halfway through, and stopped watching because the characters seemed so undeveloped. Not so here, by the midway point you know the backstory of most all of the main characters, and their current desires as well.
This series is also an interesting blend of the occult and science. Only a few series manage to do that without problems, Outlaw Star, and Blue Seed comes to mind. This series is probably closer to Blue Seed of the two. It maintains a dark tone throughout, and is probably another anime that may have drawn some of its influence from the movie Blade Runner.
If you're looking for fan service you won't get much, this is not a series that hits all the usual anime cliches. This makes it all the more unusual that you just keep wanting to watch more. I've also seen some comments that the english voice cast is weak, but I've not seen that. They seem fine, and well suited for the characters. While this series will not likely go down in the world of anime as a classic, you'll rarely find a better bargain for your anime dollar."
A dirt cheap collection

""2023. Beings known as "Lucifer Hawk" have begun invading the Earth from another dimension. All that stands between them and the enslavement of the human race is the Attacked Mystification Police Department, a special division of the Tokyo Police staffed by women with amazing paranormal abilities. Will the abilities of Katsumi Liqueur and these special women be enough to defeat these forces of darkness?"
This collection consists of 6 DVDs for the entire series in a brick package."
This is a steal

"Silent Mobius doesn't have the best animation. But it takes place in a great world, with awesome characters who are well-developed and well-acted. The stories and scripts are great, and so is the music. For about a dollar an episode, you'd be nuts to not get this series, especially if you think you might like an anime series that wonderfully blends the mystical and the cyberpunk themes."
