Avenger I like because as the series moves on you start seeing why Layla acts like she does and you start seeing more of her personality. SHe was hard to figure out at first but by the end of the series I like her.

And Speedy I thought was unnecessary at first but now I understand his purpose and he is necessary.

And I like how the story unfolds a little each week so by the end you know whats going on.
I agree that when they reveal more of layla's personality, it got a bit more interesting. Probably the only thing that makes me keep downloading this anime is NEI. I want to know about her, she goes from a supposively doll to human and her eyes and hair changes as well. It is now pink as it was blonde before.

Something interesting I just realized...Avenger has many similarities to Iria.

Layla is like a more consistantly pissed off version of Iria. Similar hair colors and styles.

The hand-held combat weapons and style she uses is eerily similar to Gren's when he's fighting Zeiram.

The blonde haired fighter whom Layla beat and is still observing her from time to time appears almost exactly like Gren himself.

Volk is a big, practically unpenetrable opponent with raw power and thus when Layla fights him, I'm reminded of when Iria fights Zeiram.

Of course, there are so many anime out there that coincidences are bound to occur...but having just rewatched Iria...its kinda creepy how much of the character style the two shows share.

Way. Too. Many. Eyeshots.

I bet there is over 30 minutes worth of eyeshots in the 12 episodes so far.

The OP song is "Gesshouku Grand Guignol". The ED song is "Mirai no Ivu (Eve)". I like "Jigoku no Kisetsu" myself.

some people just don't know good anime when they see it. People are complaining about the music? it's a little different but very beautiful- I listen to the OST all the time. The action choreography is incredible and the characters (atleast near the end of the series) are intriguing. I'll admit that the series took a while to take off, but it is otherwise a top notch series!

Amen to that!

I don't know... People seem to be "bored" because of the directing techniques (like those eyeshots)... I however find it interesting. It's something that's not often done in anime after all.

That's why people are such hypocrites... They complain when an anime is not original enough but when the shows do something new and different (the unorthodox background music included) they just keep complaining.

Very true, the music is beautiful. It's sooo much like Noir music.

The eye shots are longer than needed at times, but hey it certainly gives the show a special tone and mood.

I can't wait to see the last episode. >< Why won't it come out?!

The fansubbers can't work on episodes that haven't been broadcast yet. It looks like episode 13 will shown this Thursday so the end is in sight. I'm waiting to see what happens to Nei.

I've seen a couple of episodes of avenger now and my first impression is this

Animation : beautiful sceneries and well drawn characters
Story : too early to tell, there isn't much going on so far, hoping it get's cleare up later on
Music : a real DISASTER : the music itself is not that bad (not great either) but it is completely out of place. Playing violins during battle scenes? For me the music in the anime really screws the atmophere created by the animation (that's why I watch avenger with sounds as low as possible, otherwise it gets annoying)
Characters : again a bit too early to tell (not seen many episodes yet) but so far it looks like there's more to the characters that that which is shown on the surface

So I will continue to watch hoping the story gets more clear (and the music gets less annoying), for now it looks like an average anime to me, not bad but not great either...

Avenger 13 - final *Spoilers*

Ok WTF I thought Avenger was at least 24-26 episodes long why only 13, this was a big surprise for me. I'm really pissed.

As for the final episode, all I can say is WTF. She defeats Volk then just leaves everyone behind including her beloved Nei. I'm so f****** disappointed. Also what about the future of Mars, isn't the Red moon about to collide with it, what about that. So many loose ends here. Oh yeah Layla laughs for the first time, that was shocking. WTH was that about, lol maybe I should watch the whole episode again or maybe not.

Yeah that ending sucked. I like the series but chalk another one up to bad writing or incomplete creative ideas. Ohh well, at least its over so I wouldn't have to be dragged around more of a crappy story, well ending.

Well, when you like an anime it's a good idea to look up how many episodes there are going to be, to avoid being disapointed.
(Something you found out the hard way...)

I quit watching it 15 min into it. It was that bad. For someone who watches almost everything... WTF is an understatement. No wonder SAi-Cg, etc took a long time to FS it. They probably could not watch it far enough to complete it. It was too painful.

Yeah what the heck is that? Does Nei being multigendered freak Layla so much that she laughed or something? I have no idea....

EDIT: OK, watch the latter half of the episode again... I guess why Layla reacted like that was because of the revelation that all the problems that the people have were supposedly all her fault... (how did that happen though?) And I guess with Nei being the savior she didn't want to be there anymore or something... But still it's a mess (though I can't decide if we're supposed to figure out a meaning to this ending or if the ending is just BAD).
