In the not-too-distant future, children are being born with special powers; marvelous and remarkable abilities. But what would seem like a wondrous gift turns out to be a dangerous curse. The world is now run by The Order, and these miraculous "deviants" are hunted down and killed.

Ratings & Reviews
This show was better than I expected. If your a fan of action anime, with the girly drama on the minimum, this show is for you.

I love the fact that it's a blu-ray. This was very reasonably priced and it's stuff like this that will keep me coming back to rightstuf. I haven't gotten around to watching the show yet, but I will very soon.
Do you like the X-Men?
by Phil -
To me, this show was great. Established characters well, told a story quickly but efficiently, and it felt like a much better rendition of the X-Men based on the premise. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys that sort of genre. It's filled with action, great lessons about accepting yourself and others, and ultimately is just all around cool.

I purchased this from Right Stuf during one of their amazing sales - I had never heard of this series before but the price was so good I felt like giving an unknown work a shot, and I was pleased. It's an entertaining sci-fi story (another genre addition to a long line of gifted humans with extraordinary powers) that combines cyborgs and old folklore of Japan with a random smidgen of the botanical, with great voice acting from Sentai filmworks (David Matranga will always have a place in my heart). If I wasn't happy with this purchase I was just going to pass it on to Half Price Books, but this is a keeper.
u out yo mind if you buy a 6 episode series for half a hundred dollas. i didnt buy it, i aint gone buy it , and i dont recommend nobody to buy it, unless you crazy and you just flat out love it, but i dont know how much love their can be for a 6 episode series .
Generic '10s Anime
You've seen this show before--it has all the same elements as everything else. It felt like they grabbed the bland/irritating parts of Eureka 7, Shangri-la, Birdie the Mighty, Xam'd, etc., and mixed them together and said "Meh, it's a paycheck."
But the suicidal flowers were new, so it's got that going for it.

This show was a pleasant surprise. The story and characters are engaging, pacing is good, and the ending was satisfying. While it is only 6 episodes, each episode is 45-50 minutes long. I had picked up my copy heavily discounted here at RS during the holiday sale and highly recommend it.
Good, Solid Sci-fi
by Jessica -
I bought this on sale with a handful of other shows I had not had a chance to watch yet. This was one of the first I watched and probably my favorite of the lot.
The animation and art are solid. The set up and plot, while somewhat predictable at points did also have some pleasant twists and nice surprises. It was interesting to see an alternate take on the "X-men" style set up with an organization rescuing kids with special powers.
It was interesting enough to keep my attention and short enough to not out-stay its welcome. Even with the short run of only 6 episodes it didn't feel too rushed, it was nice that the pacing remained steady throughout.
I would recommend to any Sci-fi fans, people into the super-hero genre, or just someone looking for an quick show to take up an evening.
