Zaion is a basically a story about a meteorite which landed on Earth containing an alien virus that has begun infecting humans. So basically this is very similar to the Resident Evil theme. The story must also take place in the future because they have warriors using nano-technology and mecha-type machines to fight against these mutated humans. They also decided to stick in a bit of romance which is basically a love at first site ordeal. Overall, the series is worth watching considering it's only 4 episodes and can be watched while read more

Zaion is an exercise in lack of thought. Not defective thought like some animes, no half-baked explanations of convienient plot twists, but a nearly complete lack of interest on the part of the writers.

I will begin by saying that, while the review may sound scathing, this mini-series has some things going for it. If you enjoy the super-suite type mecha stuff in the vein of Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040, it's graciously short, and ultimately may be worth watching for you.

The plot isn't really the issue. It's another take on something we've seen time and time again, and for that get's a mediocre score. It didn't try to reach anything new, didn't overstep its boundaries, and didn't use any lame explanations to try to change the game from similar stories that preceded it.

The main issue I had is read more
