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.

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 read more

Let's be honest, sometimes we avoid some series after seeing the other users score, but ID-0 has been underrated by some reviewers, social networks, etc. The anime started with a 6.23 and ended with a 6.85, in the last episodes, ID-0 developed a good narrative.

The story follows a group of "excavators" that seeks a mineral called Orichlat. During this search, humanity has developed I-Machines that moves the consciousness of a person into a robot, in other words, the human becomes a machine. Some members of these excavators have decided to move their memory into the machine forever. One of that persons is Ido, read more

The story progresses in a meaningful way, with just enough surprises to keep you interested. As in the best of stories we learn quickly that a number of characters are not who you might think that they are. As is so typical in many Japanese stories, characters are not black and white but shades of gray. Also appealing was the writing. Every time I thought I knew where the story was "finally" going, it didn't. It's hard to surprise me nowadays, so this was a major plus.

This was a great hidden gem, a series that I almost missed, but happened to catch on a list of shows that wasn't on crunchyroll, and I'm so glad I did, I hope more people find out about this series, wonderful animation and everything that makes me think back to the anime I loved in the 80's and 90's.

Story: A strange story but well done one, about humanity that has discovered a way to travel FTL using this powerful ore and can't say much more, but it just worked for me. There are still some questions, but nothing that bothers me.
