I really enjoyed watching Appleseed so I had good expectations for this sequel. I was surprised and pleased form the start to see that they dramatically improved the graphic and animation quality. I would definitely recommend owning it. It is a pleasure to watch and I can't wait to see where they are going with the series.
This is an animated tale, mostly action with mystery woven for suspense. The story follows Deunan who is a young female warrior and her partner / lover Briareos. They are members of an elite police force in charge of protecting a pseudo-utopian city and keeping peace amongst other cities in the post-apocalyptic earth. This tale involves humans, cyborgs, and Bioroids which are mostly machine humanoids that don't have emotions like anger or hate. Problems start to arise as a virus starts to hack both cyborgs and people causing them to blindly follow orders from an unknown source.
action scenes were compelling and captivating
good story with all of the clues included but plot twists were not obvious
well voiced and developed characters
they really get you to care about the characters and the people in the setting
Dislikes / Concerns
the rating of pg-13 may be too light of a rating because it covers a lot of adult themes that teenagers may not be mature enough to handle.
