A 20 minutes 100% CG animation presented by "buildup", a company that brought many japanese CG movies such as Godzilla vs Biollante, Stray Dog - Kerberos Panzer Cops, Godzilla vs King Ghidora, Kappa, Gundam Mission To The Rise and D.

The story takes place in the future, the year is 2124. A dangerous container is to be secretly loaded into medical transport ship which goes into the earth orbit because it's forbidden to store dangerous container on earth.

It's so secret that no crew members on the ship were told about the container's contents or any possible hazzards. The truth is, the container carries a dangerous living body in some form like liquid / worm which is capable of reading DNA information of other living beings and then transforms itself as an exact copy. Of course, the original object then will be killed.

The score doesn't do justice for this anime. Considering that it was made in 2002 , the animation is pretty good for a 15 min special.

It's the 22nd century and our characters are on a space station. The new package that they took in had a modified being which to my amusement is a giant ducking baby face which tries to kill our characters.

It's CG which is too good for its time. I had some issues with the picture quality but that might just be because of my server.

Soundtrack is meh at best.nothing much to talk about.

If you're the kind of people that dislikes PS1 like CGI, or CGI in general, this definetly won't change your mind.

Story 3/10

The story is pretty much non-existent, apart from this one thing in the ending that can be considered a cheap twist. Most of this 15 minute special is just action, and even that isn't all that entertaining.

Anyway, the setting is this sort of space ship that gets overrun by a virus. That's pretty much all that can be said, since they don't work on anything beyond that.

Art 4/10

It wouldn't be as bad if the poor story was backed with eyecandy, but the CGI is ...

I didn't expect much going into Archetypes Forces, but even with these low expectations, I didn't think it was much good.

The story is basically a set-up for all of the action that happens throughout, and it's a very common sci-fi horror tale. Person is infected with some kind of parasite, this parasite takes over their body and controls them and tries to kill the others. These creatures shape shift and their heads start splitting open into monster tentacles or whatever. The humans run away from them... there's little tiny mech suits that they use to try and fight back. There's really no surprises here.

The characters ...
