The critically acclaimed movie, Children of Man, had the idea of the end of the human race due to the inability of humans being able to reproduce. Avenger, released a few years before that, had a similar plotline, but has little to no enjoyment that can be garnered from it.

Taking place on the planet Mars, humanity is at the end of its rope. Because Earth is no longer inhabitable, humans fled to the Moon and Mars. Resources are scarce and domed cities enlist delegate gladiators to fight in tournaments to decide who gets what, with the loser’s assets transferred to the winner. Furthermore, a decade read more

Being the BEE TRAIN fan I am I decided to buy Avenger in the complete collection form while at an Anime convention. I don't think it was a total waste of money but still it wasn't and won't ever be a personal favorite from them. It has their trademarked styles which I love, but the execution and ultimate conclusion left me dissatisfied. I wouldn't write Avenger entirely off like I would some other animes, if you are bored and looking for a short anime maybe you want to give this a try. If you are looking for a short or read more

Story
Kind of cliche post-apocalyptic sci-fi in a far future. Mars is colonized by men. But the fabric of society is torn, it is all deteriorating. The new martians have a hard time struggling for survival. The remnants of the original settlers, a kind of 12 "olympian gods", are the rulers, notably the tyrant Volk, who is aware, somehow, that their time has come. The society is fated to collapse as children cannot be born anymore — these have been replaced by androids called "Dolls". Goods are earned in gladiatorial arena combats. Layla Ashley is the representative fighter for Serena City. This is also about revenge read more

Hooooly sh....
That WAS weak.
Really. For the first time since... since loooong time, I've watched anime, which has absolutely no, literally no point.
The music was horrible. I really do like a j-music. But this opening can be heard on your biggerst nightmare. During episodes was just a little bit better. MIDI samples rox there...
Characters... Watashi wo... korossu shite imasu. Kill me for christ sake and leave it! Main character - Layla Ashley was a totally freak and psycho girl, who would like to get killed. Unfortunately, she had beat the crap out of your ass, before you could even touch her. So as far as u read more
