I have a bit of a bias, as this is my favorite anime, but I'll try and be unbiased in my review.

The story is not too average, though it is in a typical school setting and has the typical characters-types (quiet one, spaz, girl-and-boy-who-start-off-hating-each-other-and-end-up-falling-in-love), but it deals with real-world morality issues, like cloning and nuclear-holocaust. There are many subtleties that you'll have to re-watch the anime to pick up, including an "oh shit" moment at the end that you have to catch the first time.

Animated by Tatsunoko Productions, a company with generally low budgets. They have made a few goodies such as Irresponcible Captain Tylor and Soul Taker but their roster is mostly made up of bad and passable anime.

I have seen lots of shows where the protagonist transforms to a cybernetic monster and wrecks havoc to other monsters. The most famous amongst anime are Tekkaman Blade and Biobuster Armor Guyver, and if I include live action there is also Kamen Rider. ...
