Ichise's grief only allows him to enjoy the pain of the fighting pits in the underground city of Lukuss.

Griity, dark, & beautiful
Focusing on the art alone, this anime is beautifully designed and elegantly presented throughout its 22 episodes. It is quite dark though, in both its subject matter and its muted color palette. At times I actually felt slightly claustrophobic watching it , which only goes to show how well this series can draw you into its almost sunless world. The story is deep and cerebral, but also very dark and even oppressive at times. To me, it demands multiple viewings... though I would recommend spacing them out with lighter fare in between, otherwise it could get depressing!
It is not a kids anime and I wouldn't recommend it for anybody under 16 or 18, depending on maturity level. There is no fan service whatsoever but there is quite a bit of th' old ultra-violence, not gratuitous but rather necessary for tuning your state of mind to the brutal reality the characters live, kill, and die in. Music is minimal, but the Juno Reactor opener is excellent. Madhouse provided the animation to Yoshitoshi ABe's desiged characters in this 2003 production.
I both agree and disagree with Lars

This is a dark and gritty anime. Not for children absolutely. I enjoy the art, and the atmosphere greatly. I have to say however that I dropped it after watching about 15 episodes (apx). It came highly recommended, and I may have made a mistake, but it lacked any of the three things that are super important for me in an anime. It either needs to make me think, make me feel, or just be super cute. Perhaps it begins to come together after I've dropped it, tell me if I made a huge mistake. But this is my review. * sad face * I hate leaving less than positive reviews but my thoughts are my thoughts. I would say Art and Atmosphere are strong points, most especially if you like the dark stuff. ( and I do usually, if the story grips me )
