All Appleseed (Movie) released episodes
This was one of my favorite animes growing up. I loved it, and in fact i think it was the second to fourth anime I'd ever seen. I personally likes it, but every one's free to their own opinion.
This film is set in the city of Utopia which is inhabited by humans and bioroids, a type of artificial humans. To this peaceful city arrives the war veterans Deunan and Briareros. The city is then brought into unrest and battles are fought. The story flows smoothly and the final "secret" gets revealed in a fitting situation and time that makes the film pay off. Animation in this film is great. It was made in 2004 but could easily stand toe to toe with todays best animation. It is perfect blend of traditional animation and cg making a fast paced dynamic flow. The attention to detail is also great. The sound design is well done but could have been more varied. The music in the battle scenes is a standout and really brings out the tension and action well. The characters have interesting backstories but unfortunately doesnt get very fleshed out. The main characters Deunan and Briareros take up most of the character development. Even if most characters didnt get much time they all feel plausible though. Appleseed is a film for those who want a well made action film to just sit and enjoy on a free evening. It has some depth with philosophical discussions but the majority of the screentime is devoted to the action.
