Transferring the human consciousness into a robotic "I-Machine" is now a reality thanks to the discovery of a valuable ore called "orichalt." However, there is the possibility of the consciousness failing to return to the host's body, rendering them stuck inside their new metallic frame for good. Such is the situation of members of the Excavate Company, a reckless band of I-Machine miners led by the notorious Grayman that aims to gather orichalt for profit.

During a mining incursion, the group rescues Maya Mikuri, a student who was abandoned by her crew. Accused of stealing classified information on orichalt by her former colleagues, she joins the Excavate Company in hopes of clearing her name. They then begin an adventure that will change their lives—including that of Ido, an ace member of the group with no memory of his past. For the first time, Ido might have the chance to rediscover his true identity.

I watched ID-0. Here are my thoughts:

ID-0 is about a naive astrogeologist girl and a group of space bandits, some of whom are minds trapped inside robot bodies, who engage in illegal space mining. Things go wrong during one of their illicit excavations and the plot spirals from there. All the characters have unique personalities and I enjoyed the chemistry of this motley crew working together.

This show is actual genuine science fiction and frequently invokes intriguing sci-fi concepts such as digital consciousness, robotics and cloning. The story is interesting and engaging; it incorporates mystery elements well and does a good job of 'peeling back the ...

Mixed Feelings
Warning possible Spoilers

Considering I had just watched Knight's and Magic before going into this, I didn't have a good feeling about ID-0, luckily it wasn't that bad and still had some good points, but it still had some bad points too.

Story (6/10)

ID-0's story, mainly concentrates on Ido, who is trying to find out who he really is, since he has no memory from before he became an I-machine, luckily he has a rag tag crew to help him out.
The story starts off a little slow, it takes time to introduce the characters, but it starts shifting into gear once you reach episode 4 or 5 ...

ID-0 is one of those “Netflix anime” that are completely forgettable since it doesn't stand out in any field or particular way, not even in the superfitial level.

Production values are decent, the music and sounds are generic but fitting, and Japan is still far away from being Pixar, but at least in terms of CGI animation is not the latest “Berserk”, “Kingdom”, or “Apeggio of the Blue Steel”, the motions don't look as robotic, and proportions are consistent, but once again, it doesn't stand out either.

And what can I say about the writing and directing?

The plot is the usual stand alone missions in space with ...
