otakunicks retro reviews

hey guys and welcome to the first of what will be many reviews of old anime the reason i have decided to make a full on series like this is because i do a lot of reviews of older anime that predate 2000 so i figured hey why not make reviewing old anime witch happen to be a Favorite of mine not to mention i all ready have a massive finished list of old anime i can run thew that is all was growing so without further a due hears a anime from the 90s that i just finished yesterday called Silent Mobius 

Silent Mobius started off as a manga witch was published in 1991 and ran to completion in 2003 witch was written by Kia Asamiy who also was the Original Creator of another one of my favoritenadesico the manga was adapted into a anime in 1998 and was directed by Hideki Tonokatsu who also worked on Sousei no Aquarion 

now the story rely dos not seem like much when put into a synopsis but when played out it rely draws you in and hold on The year is 2023 and Alien Beings known as "Lucifer Hawks" have begun invading 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.

the art is what iv come to now and love from asamiys work tho a lot of people seem to have a problem with it gess i am just strange but i don't think there is a anime fan that would not appreciate the music in this anime like a lot anime from the 90s to make up for lac in animation budget they rely made music that worked great with the seen and the mood of the show the op of silent mobius has acholy quickly became one of my favorite anime ops from the 90s

so with all the good i have been saying your probably thinking that there is nothing bad with this anime well thats not rely true there are a couple problems with the anime one being a bad ending its not the story's fault or anything like that its just that when the anime ends your left with the feeling that you just know there is more to the story witch is sum thing that seems to be the problem with all of the anime that are made from asamiy's work just like nadesico i am shore the staff was hopping on a second season but never got the green light for it levering this anime with a blatantly unfinished story witch hurts it a bit and of corse there are sum miner animation problems but thats to be expected with a anime from the 90's even the greats like cowboy bebop had thows problems from time to time so i don't rely hold silent mobius at fault for them 

with that aside i must say this is a must see for fans of asamiy's works and a solid recantation to any fan of anime its a great story with a cool cast nice art and music that would be a great addition to anyones collection
