(A.N. Reviews are my personal opinions, these aren't coming from an objective perspective where I try to look at the anime critically. I just want to jot down my thoughts on somewhere where I physically can't lose it)

All right, let's get started. 009-1 is a very interesting watch, but does have a rather difficult story line to follow. Quite often, I found myself rewinding certain parts and rewatching certain episodes to make sure that I had a grasp of what was really going on.
It's a very sci-fi anime, with robots and villains, with a peculiar story behind it. It takes place in a fictional realm read more

With new series springing up every year many anime titles tend to fall between the cracks and become lost in obscurity. Often overshadowed by more acclaimed shows released around the same time period or forgotten altogether due to a lack of buzz, these shows are often only given any attention by those that come upon it by happenstance. 009-1 is that kind of title; It's one of those shows that many have either never heard of or simply overlooked when it was airing. One simply need to look at the MAL stat section and the proof is in the numbers.
As of late there's been read more

This anime is kinda old comparing to the day i'm writting this which is 15-10-2015 this was realeased in 2006 so keep this in mind if you are considering watching this. I liked 009-1 it's a story about an special ops assasin that works for a company in security mainly, the action part is really good in the anime the plot itself kinda feels it could give us more. Watch this with the intent of watching an action based anime don't go for the story which is nice but nothing from the other world. Overall an good anime to pass the time watching and for read more

Anime: Najica Dengeki Sakusen
Both series feature sexy agent girls who can kick ass. Stylistically they look different, but the basic premises are rather similar. Also, 009-1 is more mature and bloody.

Anime: The Big O
Both have that spy-fiction feel that reminds us of James Bond. To support that feel, they both have creative character designs; some good to look at and some ugly as sin.
They also have very good music composers who make those action scenes as groovy and smooth as a sarsaparilla(it's a rare drink, but it's good!)
They're basically moody shows, that are easy to take in, since they have American characteristics.

Big O has mecha, has an overarching story, has much better animation despite it's age, and has a strong message.

009-1 is orchestrated in a stand-alone manner, making it a bit harder  read more

Anime: Cowboy Bebop
Both mix very good music with some very stylish action sequences. Both are episodic and don't really have an interconnecting story, and both were dubbed amazingly well.
As each episode tells its own story, some of them can be quite emotional, and some can be better than others.
But they both have graphic content, have elements that are targeted towards Americans, and are fun to watch now and then.

009 has more of a 007 approach to the stories, as many of the episodes reference the Cold War, deal with multiple countries, and feel a bit old fashioned. It also has a lower episode  read more

Anime: Black Lagoon
Both animes feature female protagonists and have a lot of kick @$$ action! Mylene Hoffman (009-1) is a cyborg spy who can dogde any bullet shot at her, besides that she can get out of any predicament (explosion) that life throws at her! Revy (Black Lagoon) is a hired hit-woman who fights with 2 guns in 2 hands, and she causes lots of explosions. BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!!!!! Black Lagoon is a darker, sort of Underworld Gansta film-type television show. Meanwhile 009-1 takes a softer, yet more feminine James Bond movie type of series. Both are worth watching!
