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

It took me almost ten years to get around to seeing Avenger. I was a really big fan of Noir, which was Bee Train's first independent series, back when it first came out, and the promos I started seeing for Avenger not long after made it look pretty stylish and unique, what with the Martian setting, hand-to-hand combat, and killer child androids.

I kept putting the series off though, because there always seemed to be something better to watch first, a feeling I'm pretty sure any long-time anime fan has experienced. In hindsight, my decision to put it off so long might have been my subconscious 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
