Synopsis

The year is T.C. 4767. Four thousand years have passed since humanity abandoned its birthplace, the planet Earth. Beset by the hostile alien Gnosis, mankind is now scrambling to find ways to defeat this threat to their existence. The development of KOS-MOS (a specialized android with amazing capabilities) by Vector engineer Shion Uzuki was one response to the threat. But when their ship is destroyed by the Gnosis, Shion and her companions find themselves thrust into the middle of a battle with no clear sides...

Those who may have had a chance to play the Playstation 2 trilogy video game of the same name, might be surprised that the first Xenosaga... saga actually got an anime adaption. And you know what? Its pretty good!

Story: 8/10
Following the events from the first video game, some people may be surprised that it has been changed somewhat. While we do still follow genius technician Shion Uzuki and her mysterious android KOS-MOS, as they fight the alien threat known as the Gnosis. Along the way meeting new friends and enemies alike, trying to unlock the secrets of both the Gnosis as well the mysterious read more

Ugh. This was a tough one to finish. I've never played the video game but a friend lent me this, so I watched it in its entirety. I didn't even know it was a space themes anime until I got a ways into it.

I'm a sucker for space sci-fi. That is why I enjoyed this anime at all. The story was weak and farfetched and the character dialog and interactions were surreal and shallow. Don't expect much. If you like scifi, just enjoy it for its simplicity.

Being a huge fan of the Xenosaga universe it was bound to happen I would eventually give this anime a try and I must say I'm quite suprised. Those that have played the game will see changes however there not in bad taste and the changes make the anime flow smooth. To be honest I think it was well done for only being 12 eps they had alot to cram in that amount of time and they did it and made it fun to watch.

If you have not played the games don't worry its still worth watching in my option
