Set in the near future in Japan, year 2035. A major incident was known as "Burst" which was caused by researching artificial life. A certain AI called "Matter" has eroded the Kurobe Gorge. Entering the research city, which has been called as humanity's last hope, has been prohibited by the government.

Two years later, Aiko Tachibana, a 15-year-old girl who lost her family from the incident, was told by a transfer student named Yuuya Kanzaki the truth that Aiko didn't know regarding a secret hidden within her body. The key to solve the mystery is said to be in the Primary Point, the center of Burst. When a boy and a girl, who bears the future of humanity, meet, what will be the new truth?

After a streak of great Netflix original anime, I was worried this new series wouldn’t live up to the high expectations set by the previous anime released this year. Thankfully, A.I.C.O. Incarnation is another strong addition to the sci-fi thriller genre. Full of monumental twists, intense action, a strong cast, and story with a surprising amount of depth.

In the near future in a city known for its advanced researching facilities, a catastrophe known as the “Burst” puts a swift end to the city’s utopian-like harmony. This catastrophe creates a giant mass of red matter that wreaks havoc on the outskirts of the city, killing read more

= Mediocrity

Not necessarily can easily tell that the show considered to be good or bad it flops current detail of what's lies beneath the whole main plot of the show.. Thinking how it's just another carbon-copy of Bounen no Xamdou on having same counterparts. Same main character who's especially not a human that invokes a lifeforms due to manifestation.

Downward spiral, Empty poor writing with sheer of plain visuals, as it depicts
how dreadful without leaving a direct complexity.. Characterization can grasp in a form of repetitive scenarios but it falls apart at the certain pacing of the series.

Was alright I guess. Could've been crammed into 4x45-60min OVAs though and cut the crap.

Half the story (synopsis) is explained during the first 2 eps while the climax starts at the end of episode 8 onwards. So you know when to drop it fast or when to expect things to actually pick up.

The story was a bit cliche too. Your typical moral story about life and death, what is human and what isn't. There's been a few of these over the years which I can't really remember nor name but you know you're out there!

A.I.C.O. Tells the story of Japan being overrun with "matter", a sort of abstract material that destroys everything in it's path. The story is a bit generic but the pacing make's up for that. The biggest issue I had with this anime was the main character; Tachibana, Aiko. it's not that she lacks depth, it's the way she reacts to every situation. It's like she was made to be shocked at every turn. And it gets tiresome fast. The best aspect of the anime is the artwork. The elegant animations and fast pace of the series is what kept the two dimensional characters in check read more
