The next mission of the government is to destroy a bloodthirsty squad, Phage, and its leader King. In her battle, she encounters a Phage soldier, Luka, and finds herself unable to kill him. She wonders why, but as a result, Daxus Jr., the leader of the government group, regards her as a traitor. She is targeted by both Phage and the government, and she runs away with the injured Luka.

(*a small note: I usually never submit my reviews to this site, because I don't agree with the rating system, but I'm making an exception here, because this is one series that needs all the attention it can get*)

For the past summer season, Ultraviolet: Code 044 was the most underrated series for me. It only got one episode subbed, and that episode received masses of bad reviews. Because of all this bad publicity, this series received no chance at all to show its goods, which is a pity since it’s actually a pretty good series. If you know what you want to watch it for.

The story starts as pretty dynamic, but as the plot evolves, the dynamicity decreases rapidly. On the contrary, there is lot of self-reflection of the characters. At the end, the dynamicity returns but story isn't going to grandiose ending, as expected, and the final battle just "foams up".

The "Ultraviolet: Code 044" series is great anime piece - Art and sound are just great as well as characters. Unbalanced story is big minus, though.

Osamu Dezaki is one of my absolute favourite directos. Responsible for the adaptations of Riyoko Ikeda manga Rose of Versaille and Oniisama e, as well as Aim for the Ace, which heavily influenced Hideaki Anno. And of course, Dezaki directed the adaptation of Ashita no Joe. Oniisama e, Rose of Versaille, and Joe, are all in my top 10, so basically, he's a big fuckin' deal, and I'm a huge fan. He started by working as an animator on the first Astro Boy TV show, and died in 2011. One of the last series he directed was Ultraviolet: Code 044 (2008), a 12 episode TV read more

I think this show had a good amount of potential for being good. Unfortunately, having one of the worst animation I have seen makes me have to reconsider this notion.

Ultraviolet: Code 044's story is actually a lot better than many other sci-fi shows out there. It features a high tech society, and they only introduce the amount of details that are necessary for the show to go on. Whether it be weapons, scientific development, or cloning, these concepts are introduced and not delved too deeply since they're not the focus of the show. It's a sci-fi show, but it's mainly focused on 044's development rather read more
