The world has been divided into two halves by a giant wall to prevent the epidemic of "Dark mist". In order to shelter the refugees, artificial cities called "Arks" were built. Shido Enishi is a private detective, who works at the ninth Ark. One day, he is asked to capture a burglar. The seemingly simple case leads him to a great conspiracy.

I actually really like how it gave you a rough idea what the actual story is about. It unfortunate it isn't longer, I would have watched it. I think the fighting is nicely drawn. It is really hard to tell what type of story something will be about in such a short amount of time but I think the handled it very well.
I would really give this an 8.5 if I could because I do wish they would have made it flow a bit better. All in all a good 11 minute OVA.

A anime which will make you hyped! Attack on titan living-behind-a-wall-cause-monsters-outside-(and inside)-plot in sci-fi post apocalyptic setting! Awesome gun fu! Naruto like Ninjustu! Great opening/ending! The classic handsome mysterious male main character. Gangsters, big cooperational corruptions , robots, zombies, werewolfs, what not to like!!??
Well... only that little tiny detail that this is a one episode only 11 min OVA of a series which sadly seems like that it is not going to be animated....

This is your classic "trailer"/promotion for the manga... So f*** you for C**k blocking me those who made this OVA!! >.< Shame on you! :D

So yeah this is not recommended especially if ...

All i have to say is that this OVA is basically a trailer for the real OVA coming out, but there is no real OVA coming out hahaha. There is no story. All you get is violence with no explanations. The story is beyond mediocre and the art is a little above decent. But if you're a brainless puppet and you enjoy senseless ninjustu hand motions, this is totally for you.
