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

There shouldn't be any beating around the bush when it comes to ZOE. If you liked the games, watching this series and the OVA is highly recomended.

However, if you are unfamiliar with the games - it's just a solid adventure title. It involves characters that change and evolve, cool mecha action and the level of tragedy that will most likely leave you satisfied. Despite not being deeply drammatic/pscychological as similiar looking shows tend to try it's still original.

Also unlike some other adaptations done without regarding the newcommers ZOE Dolores doesn't require read more
