In the not-too-distant future, children are being born with special powers, marvelous and remarkable abilities. But what would seem like a wondrous gift turns out to be a dangerous curse. For the world is now run by The Order, and these miraculous "deviants" are hunted down-and killed. But Quon and his group of Attractors are out to rescue these children before The Order's elite squad of ruthless cyborgs detect them. From their hideout beneath a popular amusement park, the Attractors use high tech gadgetry and their own remarkable abilities to save these children, and teach them to harness and control their powers to overthrow the very powers that seek to destroy them. With spectacular animation, stunning fight sequences, and richly detailed characters, Towanoquon is destined to be an anime classic and must-have for any animation fan's library.

I'll start with my one issue with the show- It is clear there were originally meant to be more episodes but for whatever reasons the show was cut down a bit. This does leave a few small gaps in the storyline here and there and things don't always flow perfectly between scenes, it doesn't detract too much from the overall experience but it can be a little annoying on a first viewing.
That is about it for the negatives!
Onto the positives, and the obvious place to start here is the action. The fight scenes are superb and are some of the most memorable I've seen in quite some time. The animation is almost always smooth and flowing. And whilst some of the faster paced scenes do loose some detail on certain characters the actual choreography and pacing is absolutely spot on.
The storyline, as I said does in a lot of ways parallel the X men with characters having to come to terms with their powers and themselves whilst also having to deal with a cyborg unit the humans have put together to wipe them off the face of the earth. Both bad guys and good guys are given a lot of fleshing out over the 6 episode run (which is very impressive given the short length of the series) and there are some really great scenes with various characters trying to discover their purpose in the world and coming to terms with what it is they have to do. I genuinely cared about all the characters by the end of the show and was quite satisfied with the ending.
The music in the show is great and serves to make all the action and drama seem all the more engaging. And the voice acting is good for both English and Japanese.
Overall I'd recommend Towanoquon to any anime fan out there. It has some slight pacing issues with the story but things do pull together nicely in the end and the action and animation are just great from start to finish. Big thumbs up from me for this one. I say buy it!
Thanks for reading!
