With so many anime titles being released year after year, it's hard to keep track of them all, let alone watch a handful before another batch is delivered. This constant barrage of entries often means that many shows will inevitably fall into the cracks of obscurity, regardless of what it may have to offer. The kind of titles that would only be talked about after they develop a devoted cult following or are merely picked up by happenstance by viewers browsing the catalogs of yesteryear. And with the number of title releases increasing drastically in the 2010s, the chances of those stragglers falling out of read more

Lion tamers, Lion tamers; come one, come all!

We try to make sense of something that is all too rare. A anime with some true meaning.

I speak of course, of "009-1"

This anime is a product of 2006, and as such; creates very little that people under the age of 20 will actually 'get'. In other words, there will be complaints that the artwork is sub-par, or the soundtrack is a little simple. In other words, production values are not good enough to suit them.

If everyone who ever said that, tried to do an anime before modern production software was available, then they'd have more appreciation for read more

009-1 is action orientated scifi, set in an alternative universe where the cold war is still going on. 009-1 is a code name for a slightly cyborgivied, female version of James Bond who completes missions and kills agents of the Eastern Block with more or less ease, stays cool and sexy in dangerous situations and provides pretty good fanservice.

While I enjoyed the series I think I'm too young to enjoy it in it's full potential. Series isn't as old as you would guess just by looking at the art. Both music and the artwork look old, which without a doubt is the intention. 009-1 read more

This anime is just the best of all !! 10/10

summary :
Most of the missions portrayed in the series are finsihed during one episode. One of the fortes of 009-1 are the bad guys: most of them have history and personalities instead of being just nameless enemies, destined to be killed by the heroine. 009-1 carefully and loyally maintains the stereotypical propaganda of evilness of the Eastern Block that was typical for James Bond and the like, but still manages to make that evilness interesting and intricate.

On the other hand, small and practically separate stories make the stroryline as a whole seem fragmented. 009-1 isn't read more

This anime is kinda old comparing to the day i'm writting this which is 15-10-2015 this was realeased in 2006 so keep this in mind if you are considering watching this. I liked 009-1 it's a story about an special ops assasin that works for a company in security mainly, the action part is really good in the anime the plot itself kinda feels it could give us more. Watch this with the intent of watching an action based anime don't go for the story which is nice but nothing from the other world. Overall an good anime to pass the time watching and for read more

I've seen a lot of good anime already and when checking out a new show it's at times more exciting than anything else to find a work that's not just good but offers something unique that you rarely see in other shows. As you might have guessed, 009-1 is that kind of show.

Art: the most "your milage might vary" part of the show. Personally I found character designs to be utterly inconsistent, some art style choices questionable and overall unfitting to the story.
What's good:
- all the clothing and hair styles are appropriate for the style of 70s spy fiction the show is aiming read more
