This is more of a 7.5 or a weak 8. Good cyberpunk anime. If you like Akira, A.D Police Files, Battle Angel, Ghost in the Shell or those type anime, you won't be disappointed.

Cheap to buy online and I recommend it if you like other animes I compared it too.

The soundtrack is really, really good. It is some underground type EDM stuff that goes really well with the dark drawing and atmosphere of the whole show.

Old school cyber punk style anime is kind of my thing, and this is one of the best ...
