I watched the first Appleseed movie over 20 years ago. I was blown away by it then. A great Manga with at the time cutting edge animation with a great story as well. This was truly unheard of. Since then the franchise has gone from strength to strength. Every time I think they could not possible improve on the last movie they surprise me by doing just that. The animation is continually upgraded, but the story is jus as good.

Having 13 25 minute episodes allows the creators to focus more on things they did not have time for in the movies. Deunan and Briareos' relationship is one of those things. Also Deunan's past as well. If you are not families with the franchise, you do not need to be to enjoy this series but I guaranty after seeing this you will want to see everything with the Appleseed label on it.

I likes the Greek metrology theme that is running through the series. I liked the relationships between the biodtoids and humans keep changing. Deunan is a tough ESWAT (high tech SWAT team) officer, being the youngest officer she is hotheaded and in some cases reckless. To counter this in her personal life they have her doing everyday girl things in most cases wearing very little. Her partner Briareos was injured in a previous mission most of his flesh was burned. He inhabits a powerful cyborg body. This makes their person relationship difficult, adding to the is the fact as Briareos, as see himself as her protector. Yep that over well with Deunan. Luckily their jobs keep them busy and me entertained with lots of mech action rather then just soap opera drama.

The story is a slow boil and we are given bits and pieces that fit together in the later episodes. The action is high speed and exciting, in the cop pit of a mech or person to person. Loved this series. Love the franchise. I hope Appleseed keep growing I will keep watching.

OK. At its core, Appleseed (pun not intended) XIII is quite an interesting series, composed of an 'intro' episode, the first story arc, a random one-off about a young girl and a new 'cop' robot, a new story arc that is basically a sequel to the first, and then a (fairly) random final episode.

As the title suggests, it felt like two decent films had been stretched into a series. To fill the time, they added a *lot* of unnecessary silences and repeated (admittedly quite good) animations of various statues of Hercules completing his 12 tasks or stained glass frescos - there was also a sort of the-last-two-minutes-of-the-last-episode as the first two minutes of the new episode which really grated when the episodes themselves are 20 minutes long with a long intro. All this filibustering lowered the overall quality of the production.

Animation was a bit strange - like a hyper-real graphic novel turned into 3D. The animations in the first few episodes are quite jerky but this seemed to improve over time. Some brilliant backdrops that reminded me of Studio IG (who had some hand in this series) occasionally appeared too. I found the animation style felt like it was made 15 year ago - but then again the last anime I watched was Ghost In The Shell: Arise.

Overall I found this a reasonable time-pass. The films are much, much better with similar themes. If you do watch this series, skip the intros/credits and get at the meat of the stories. Sadly I think you'll be 'Meh' to 'slightly disappointed' if you're a fan of the source Manga or have come from watching Ghost In The Shell.

Having just checked the series out online a bit more, apparently they released the series in two parts as films (or did they in fact do the opposite?) might be better to watch Appleseed XIII: Tartaros and Appleseed XIII: Ouranos.

Appleseed XIII is a 13 episode series that continues the popular Appleseed franchise. The show is very unique in its creation in that although Production I.G are the studio that bring us the series, each episode was made with another Japanese animation studio fronting the production. (There are a series of extras called "The Inside", that Manga UK have said will be included, documenting this.) The entire series is also CG animation as oppose to how anime is usually presented.

I'm a big fan of Masamune Shirow's work, especially Ghost In The Shell and Dominion Tank Police, that's partly why I wanted to watch the show.

The setting is a place called Olympus following a world-war. Olympus is meant to be a place of peace, but there are tensions present. In turn these tensions lead to some great actions sequences involving mechs. (If you're a fan of fighting robots you'll get a kick out of this. The action sequences in this programme look fantastic!)

I will add that I've no previous experience of the Appleseed universe in any way, so I was tentative going in that I would be completely lost. But Appleseed XIII makes sure to cater to those who either are or aren't familiar with the universe, delving into the back story of the characters as well as the universe in general.

Definitely worth checking out in my opinion.

For anyone who has seen the original 90's version of the appleseed saga this animated in a similar fashion the characters are drawn more like the manga than the characters in the two films with new story lines with titles that have links to greek mythology.
An excellent series and well worth watching.
