So one day I get a call from a friend of mine, lordzeru, and he tells me about this trippy first episode of this anime called Texhnolyze. I asked what makes it trippy. He says no one says a word, its very quiet. Usually in an anime trippy and unusual are a good thing and ultimately lead to good mind fuck. This is not the case with Texhnolyze.
From the get go there is like no audio. There is no music except the shitty opening, and I don't even think any words were said the first episode. The whole series keeps about the same pace.
That is why the sound has a 1, there is no sound. No music, and little talking, especially from the main character, Ichise, who we nicknamed, "Fists" because he threw more punches than he spoke words. If I were to compare Fists character to anything it'd be a stray dog with the brain of a pile of rocks and the emotions of a tree stump.
The setting of this story is some underground city called Lux which is controlled by several gangs fighting for power until some guy named Yoshi, who we nicknamed, "Mustache", comes in from the surface and just , fucks shit up. Mustache is the only characters I actually took a liking to simply because he pulled this series along and made shit happen. Meanwhile Fists ends up getting am arm and leg cut off by one of the gangs known as, "Organo". Fists is then taken in by horny female doctor called.....Doc, can't get anymore original than that. Anyways, Doc sets him up with some new prosthetic limbs, or Texhnolyzed limbs, as they call them. Fists then being the dumb stray dog he is then runs away from Doc and spends the rest of the series wandering around punching people. All except the little red-haired girl in a mask named Ran who follows him around and talks as little as he does.
In the end, this series left me with a pure sense of emptiness, and by that I mean a complete void of emotion, something I'd never felt before, and that's the only reason I don't consider this anime a complete waste of time.
