Synopsis

The year is 2046. Detective Ross Sylibus is transferred to Mars when a country singer on her flight is murdered. Making matters more complicated is that the singer is a "Third"—a robot that looks and feels like a human. Sylibus is partnered with Armitage—a beautiful female cop with a bad attitude. As they investigate the murder of the singer and other women on Mars, they uncover a conspiracy that can have them both killed by the Martian government.

I will admit that I'm a fan of cyberpunk in its many forms, from novels by the likes of William Gibson and Iain Banks to movies like Blade Runner and Mad Max. As a child of the 80s, these were mainstays in my entertainment repertoire. By the time Armitage III was released in February 1995, I had already been exposed to titles such as Appleseed, Battle Angel Alita, Cyber City Oedo 808, Genocyber, AD Police Files, and those classics Akira and the Bubblegum series.

Now, given the time of it's release, much of the hype of that moment centred around the forthcoming Ghost in the Shell, read more

Armitage III: Where's Armitage 1 and 2?

Okay, so let me get this straight...it's 1995. There's this anime about a hot, skimpily dressed cybernetic police officer with her large, strong as hell partner trying to stop a terrorist that's trying to shake the political scales of the world in the distant, but not too distant future? Oh, Ghost In The Shell, right? Well, you're half-right, but the anime I'm referring to is a 4 episode OVA called Armitage III...which in all actuality came out before Ghost In The Shell.

At any rate, the plot revolves around a former Chicago police officer named Ross Sylibus, who is read more

Recommendations

Another cyberpunk anime with a cyborg heroine as the lead role.
Armitage came out around the same time as GITS and was therefor completely overshadowed by GITS' huge success. Both series have stacked intelligent heroins that excel in combat and who are members of a policing force and both have strong muscle bound male leads that play the important balancing role. Both fall into the "Cyber Punk" genre and both ask many of the same questions regarding the questions of what makes us human and the very definition of life.

However, One key difference is in how they approach these same philosophical questions. While GITS uses Motoko (a cyborg) to search for life inside the digital machine world, Armitage uses Naomi (an android) to search for life inside herself.

Don't let this series pass you by.
