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

Noein has the dubious honour of being the first thing I ever bought when I opened my current account several years ago. I first heard of it when reading about Crispin Freeman on Wikipedia (we've all had inexplicable moments like that, right?). Seeing as I hadn't heard of it before I decided to exercise my right to participate in the capitalist structure of our society and bought it from Amazon.

Noein is quite a surprising choice to get licensed and dubbed for Western consumption. I can think of many other titles that are perhaps more commercial (or even more deserving). Noein starts out unremarkably, in read more

The premise of time travel is fascinating, and in the case of the multiverse theory, limitless in possibilities. Yet, it is also a difficult concept to tackle, as its inexhaustible boundaries, acting as a double edged sword, also leave behind a large margin of error. And so it's commendable that Noein - although not without its faults - makes great use of the multiverse premise, capitalizing on it to create a creative and memorable storyline, and does so with a fine degree of polish.

Our protagonists are young Haruka and Yuu, two children with an evidently special bond, and the romantic implications between them are 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

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 dimensions is a clear reality. Steins, on the other hand, shows nothing of its future; just mentioning what happens.

Okabe in Steins uses time travel between time-lines as a sort of... ladder. He has to do such and such to make a number go high enough to change from a few preset futures. Noein differs in its approach since it presents each dimension as an individual one that all lead to doom only because one of the other dimensions is destroying the others.
Both have similar feels to eachother, and have a sci-fi element, and also involve a bunch of kids.

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.
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.
drawing style, fighting scenes and somehow the setting match.
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.
