Episodes 1-12 of the Japanese anime series about a group of post-holocaust survivors with extraordinary powers.
In AD 200X, World War 3 began... All of Earth's cities became bombing targets and were bathed in terrible red fire. Half a century has passed since then. The contaminated former epicentre is still isolated from the city of Tokyo creating a hole in the middle of Japan commonly known as the Black Spot. As time passed, people began to inhabit this wasteland. They were deemed unnecessary by those who lived in cities. Among these people were ones who had strange abilities - who could command fire, wind, gravity... they had the ability to control these supernatural powers. Thus, those who possessed Fragments were regarded as... The Needless!
They're called Needless - mutants who wield amazing powers such as super speed, the ability to change form, and some, like Blade, the power to "learn" other opponent's powers. It's Blade's greatest ability, but is it powerful enough to overcome his weakness for cute young girls in revealing little skirts?
