Review: Zaion


Plot Summary: In the future, a meteor crashes into Earth and brings with it a virulent form of life. This virus is known as M34 and attacks humans, turning them into vicious monsters. Most of the human population is wiped out, thus government agencies are formed to fight the virus. One of the groups, NOA, inserts nanomachines into the bodies of its soldiers; these machines allow them to transform and fight off the infected. Unfortunately, the virus mutates and becomes too strong for NOA to handle. Now the fate of the world rests in the hands of 16-year-old girl with the power to defeat the virus.

This anime revolves around the a virus which is plaguing the humans and they developed the NOA soldiers to fight off these creatures which are developed from this virus. There are two main characters one is Yuji who is a NOA soldier, and AI who has the power to fight off this virus. The way this anime is developed its too fast and in too short a time. The story of the NOA soldiers themselves wasn’t clear as to how they came about and where they were going with them. They were trying to create a complex story in just four episodes, there wasn’t enough character development to justify all they did. They tried incorporating CG animation into the anime and that didn’t work out too well. For four episodes it was a waste of time, this is one of the worst anime’s I have seen yet.
