Hateful and resentful for letting her go, his children blamed him and cast him aside, depressed and in despair, James quit the military and took up a job as a transporter between Earth and Mars, he had some slight hope of his wife still being alive and to find her he wanted to be out there. After a few years, he seemed to have given up all hope and turned to drinking, until one day he receives an orbital frame by the name of "Dolores," sent by his dead wife. Once again, he dares to hope and sets off on a wild and wacky adventure to find the truth and to reunite his family.

Zone of the Enders: Dolores, i happens to be one of those unfortunate titles which get a bad rep for reasons which don't pertain to its actual quality. This is mainly due to fans of the (excellent) Zone of the Enders PS2 games who prefer the darker tone of the rest of the franchise as compared to the more upbeat and humorous Dolores, i. If the former is what you're looking for, then you'd rather be watching ZOE: Idolo, but by doing so, you would also miss out on one of the most delightful and unique mecha series ever conceived.

This anime really is a lost jewel in its genre. The magic of its scenario transcends time (alright, it is quite pompous but still!).

Scenario : 7/10

A father wanders through space (and troubles) and involves his children inadvertently and tries to make peace with them, while trying to protect an Orbital Frame (yeah, a mecha) and to find his wife that was supposed to be deceased.

Art : 8/10

The anime is drawn in a realistic manner that didn't age at all. I really enjoyed it, no flashy colours, no exaggerated features, maybe lacking some emotions

Sound : 9/10

The OST is incredible. There are some really dark tracks read more
