Review: Appleseed Ex Machina


Plot Summary: Deunan, a young female warrior, and Briareos, a veteran cyborg-soldier, are both partners and lovers. As members of E.S.W.A.T., the elite special forces serving Olympus, they are deployed whenever trouble strikes. The two fighters find their partnership tested in a new way by the arrival of a new member to their ranks – an experimental Bioroid named Tereus.


I have been a fan of Appleseed from the original back in the 90s but they have adapted it extremely well to a CGI anime. Deunan is faced with trouble when Briareos gets hurt, she tries to take everything on herself when she is teamed with a new partner who was built with DNA tissue from Briareos. During this time humans have the capability to make humanoids and fuse cyborg parts to normal humans. They are faced with an organization or person who wants to take the world in chaos and Deunans’ and Briareos friendship is put to the test. The story line is well thought out with a few twists in it, but the magic of the whole story is the amazing CGI animation and music, they have taken it to another level which you just have to love. This isn’t for everyone but a very well made anime which will leave its mark, if you enjoy action then you will love this anime.

  1. I believe it is the sequel to the first movie, am I right? I actually liked it…but it kinda reminded me of Xenogears :P


    Based on the first movie, I thought the dub wasn’t that bad actually (I watched it on HBO). The voice actress of Deunan is the same actress who did the voices of Wrath from Full Metal Alchemist and Nami of Once Piece (the Funimation Dub version).

  2. I got it.. I have it right here.. and I have been wanting to watch it for a while, just didn’t get the chance yet!

  3. 3baid: very well done!

    Q80saracen: Its in Japanese with English susbs!

    Angelo: yes, I think its a sequel too. Its very good and I like it very much!

    N: You should watch it!
