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
characters look more like action figures or robots more than anything else, but considering the fact that most of them are Silicon Beings, it sort of fits.
The sound was decent, but considering that all there was to hear was eerie noises and gunshots, that's not saying much.
If Cibo had shown up, there might have been some dialogue, but with Killy, its always shoot first, ask questions never. He's as silent as ever, and neither he, nor any of the enemies he runs into (including a brief moment when Sanakan appears) say a word. Its fine though, because you don't really need a whole lot of talking to understand this.
If you're a fan of Blame!, you can't really go wrong checking this out. If you're not, it's only 6 minutes out of your day and it's very pretty to look at.
