Synopsis

Iria is the story of a girl and the Alien being she loves to hate. The series begins with her brother, Gren, taking a job. He is a bounty hunter, and one well known for his incredible skill. Iria, being a skilled apprentice bounty hunter herself, tags along. What is the job, one might ask. It is to find out what has happened to the crew and cargo of a Space Station. Needless to say, nothing is as it seems, and the war between Iria and Zeiram begins in earnest.

First of all: Iria- Zeiram the Animation fits the sci-fi and adventure genres. If you are interested in watching this title, get prepared to watch some nice fighting scenes!

Story: Iria is a bounty hunter, and follows her brother´s footsteps.
She goes along with Gren (her brother) to a mission...and since that she won´t get satisfied until she destroys Zeiram...an alien lifeform created to kill and destroy.
The plot is fantastic! 10/10

Art: Even though the artwork isn´t recent, I think it is wonderful...the colors well chosen, the graphics well made and lets admit: Iria is a gorgeous bounty hunter!
10/10

Sound: The background music is very good! It is old read more

Recommendations

Another strong female lead (chicks with guns) up a strong monster.
Girls with big guns traveling in space working for the gov. getting paid to do dirty jobs, Dirty pair is more on the comedy side while Iria:Zeiram the animation goes on a far darker and more violent side. like them both!!

Opening Theme

"Tokete Iku Yume no Hate ni" ("溶けていく夢の果てに, At the End of the Melting Dream") by Yayoi Goto

Ending Theme

"Yume wa Toi Keredo ("夢は遠いけれど)" by Saeko
