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 ...

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.

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.

I didn't really know what to feel about it as I watched both the "episodes" unfold in front of my eyes. The art looked terrible, the sound seemed decent and the overall presentation felt average. I don't really get why the makers chose to split this prologue into two episodes when a single one would have sufficed, but I did admire a few shots. That being said, they were really far and few. Not having any dialogue wasn't the problem; trying to piece together the plot surely was, and in hindsight, a waste of time. I gave it a watch since I enjoyed the 2017 ...
