Synopsis

In the near future, a violent battle takes place between the dimension La'cryma (protector of humanity) and the dimension Shangri-La, bent on the annihilation of all space-time. A group known as the Dragon Calvary is dispatched through space and time, searching for the only thing that can stop the invasion: the Dragon's Torque.

In the present, twelve-year old Haruka and her friend Yuu, are contemplating running away from home when they meet a member of the Dragon Calvary named Karasu (Crow). He believes that Haruka possesses the Dragon's Torque and claims to be Yuu from fifteen years in the future...

After completing Noein, I was left with the sensation you rarely get after finishing a series or movie where you personally think almost every little thing was done just right. There's very little else to say to try and express my tremendous respect and appreciation for this series. I personally believe it was orchestrated magnificently and its message carried across powerfully.

Most of all, what I truly respected in this series was its character-driven action, as opposed to plot-driven action. The characters were so fleshed out and their relationships and backgrounds so completely delved into, I had grown to feel like they were real people I read more

Overall, I thought this anime was really good. It's fairly hard (for me anyway) to find an anime I really like, to where I start watching the first ep, and before I know it the suns rising and I just finished the last ep. This anime was one of the few. It's very hard to try and review this anime and not spill out any spoilers, but I will.

Story - 8

I found the story in Noein to be very entertaining, maybe thats because I just love the concept of separate dimensions, different futures with time, and quantum theories in general. This anime revolves a lot read more

I briefly considered starting this review by summarizing the show's plot, but it's my personal opinion that Noein should win an award for “hardest plot to summarize,” so at the risk of making an idiot of myself, I decided against it. I then considered starting by describing the concept in popular science that is behind Noein's plot, but I don't think I can really pull off the whole “Bill Nye the Science Guy” bit. He does it better. So I'll just get right down to brass tacks, and spare myself some embarrassment.

Noein definitely has a unique look to it, albeit one that's fraught with inconsistency. read more

Just like most anime series with a weird concept, this anime is very confusing to begin with. It starts of with an amazing action-sequence, in some weird world, and then it goes to the sort of world we are all familiar with, which is where most of the story takes place.

The story follows a group kids and also some adults, which are related to those kids in some way. The characters of the story are pretty stale with only a few decent ones however the main bad point is how easily the character's personalities change. There isn't much that is clearly explained and it isn't read more

Anime: Steins;Gate
The many-worlds interpretation and quantum physics. Not your usual anime bedfellows. Both series deal with time travel under the assumption that every choice we make can create an alternate, divergent time-line / dimension.

Noein is a lot more ambitious than Steins;Gate, which preferred to stay within time travel limited to days-weeks and the same area. In Noein, the other selves of the child cast time travel with enhanced bodies; conversing with their younger selves as they fight using superpowers and struggle to sustain their bodies in a dimension they don't belong in. The future involving an entity known as 'Noein' destroying all alternate  read more

Anime: Dennou Coil
Both have similar feels to eachother, and have a sci-fi element, and also involve a bunch of kids.

Anime: Fantastic Children
Fantastic Children's sci-fi side deals with reincarnation, where as Noein's deals with multiple dimensions, but in both you get to see multiple versions of the same characters. The key difference is that characters interact with their younger/older selves in Noein.

Both series alternate between serious sci-fi and lighthearted, slower paced character-focused sections. Noein's 'down time' parts have more of a slice-of-life feel, but the blend of sci-fi and everyday actions means the two give off a similar vibe.

Anime: Ima, Soko ni Iru Boku
Both deal with a world that is dying and needs a girl to help them survive. Their plots are both very dark despite having some lighthearted moments.

Anime: Sora wo Miageru Shoujo no Hitomi ni Utsuru Sekai
Both are about young girls sought by beings from other dimension, as they (the girls) are belived to have the power to save the other world. Both are also protected by powerfull being from the same dimension that tries to capture the main heroines.

Anime: Tetsuwan Birdy Decode:02
Both Ohnogi, Hiroshi (Script) and Akane, Kazuki (Director) worked on these series. The stories are epic and have a futuristic feel to them. More Tetsuwan than Noein, though. You'll notice that the same animation style was used in both of these series' fight scenes from time to time as well. Escaflowne is also another done by those two.
