Based on the manga Blame! by Nihei Tsutomu, serialised in Monthly Afternoon.

In a city that is said to have thousands of levels, making it impossible to tell the sky from the ground, the mysterious Killy wanders the bizarre and foreboding levels of this mega-structure, where the boundaries between machine and living organism have been obscured.

This is going to be a very short review for an anime that takes a little over 6 minutes to complete.

There isn't much of a story unless you were an avid reader of the Blame! manga. Several enemies appear, Killy destroys them, Killy continues with wandering the giant cityscape. End of story.

Now a good art design, this has in droves. This OVA was created by the same people who did Appleseed (04) and Vexille, so of course there's a high level of detail in the backgrounds. The city looks great, and it keeps that grungy, almost decayed look of the manga perfectly. The ...

Blame! Prologue did not seem to have any story to it, at least to me there was no story at all in the two videos.

Also, there really was not much going on within the two videos anyways. The art for Blame! Prologue was sort of good and sort of iffy. Overall, I did not really enjoy Blame! Prologue at all. I'm sure there was probably more of a ...

Unfortunately unlike the original, prologue does not have any kind of story or idea to convey. It is just couple of battles and nothing more. May be it is only of interest to those who read manga, but I haven't yet.

Atmosphere wise it does convey broadly the same feel as the original.

Animation is early CGI and looks relatively good for the show that old. However nowadays it can only be of interest for historical reasons, to see early stages of CGI development.

Overall other than for looking at early CGI or very heavy interest in technogenic future, there is no particular reason to watch it.
