Synopsis

If you have enough money, you can buy anything. So why wait for an organ you need to become available? Raised to be harvested for parts, Ray had already lost her eyes when renegade surgeon Black Jack rescued her. Now, ten years later, she has grown up to be a surgeon herself. And thanks to the unique artificial eyes she received as replacements, she has a reputation for performing incredible medical operations that no one else could even attempt. But unknown to any but a select few, her surgical endeavors are only part of a greater mission: to discover what happened to the other children she was raised with, and to find the men who stole the eyes she was born with and to bring them to justice.

The recommendation to me of the first volume of Akihito Yoshitomi's manga Ray was my first encounter with this series. While implausible, It had a lot of interesting ideas going for it; I could see how it could be really quite amusing, original and exciting. However I never got round to getting any more of the manga, for one reason or the other, before the release of the anime version *, so it was on the strength of only the first volume's limited impressions I started the series.

OOPS.

I wanted to like it. Really I did. I thought maybe its first episode read more

I had put off viewing this anime for some time, from the description I thought it was a number of different short stories. The concept definitely got me after episode one.

Story:
To me, the story was unique. While I do agree that it did seem a bit episodic, those episodes were rather interesting. I get the feeling that there was quite a bit more that could have been done, and may have been done with the Manga, but it definately was a "page turner". The main plot had a fantastic number of twists and turns, for a ride that I would recommend.

Art/Sound: Nothing that really read more

While browsing through an anime mag I noticed a little article on the manga of Ray, and I found the synopsis interesting. When I discovered there was anime, I was also pleased, and (being unable to find manga) I watched it.

--Story: 3--
Sadly the anime resembles a boring soap opera with an anime twist. Though I did watch the entire series, I was not very impressed. No plot twist was unexpected, and none of the scenes/scenario's really stuck out as interesting, apart from one aspect: Ray's past. This was what drew me to the series in the first place, but unfortunately it doesn't play a very read more

This is an incredible show that is as good as it is underrated. RAY the Animation is the adaptation of the manga that sadly got canned thanks to ADV's terrible manga division. I got warped in and was hooked. It's so basic, yet has such an innovative at the same time, it just goes to show that a story can be a little cliche without overdoing it.
STORY: Again, the story is fairly basic, following a doctor with X ray eyes who is capable of performing surgeries no one else can. You'll be wrapped up instantly as to how she aquired those powers. There's read more
