That was good!!
009-1 is a new series from ADV that blends the early-era James Bond espionage cool with the cutting edge animated action of Aeon Flux, all done up in the old school style of the Cyborg 009 series it's born from.
The series follows agent 009-1, and her team of cyborg female spies, that do battle to maintain the front of a peaceful cold war between Eastern and Western Blocs that exist in an alternate future Earth.
It's sexy, smart, and oh-so-stylish.
The first episode takes off running and doesn't let up til the final frame, as Mylene Hoffman (cyborg Zero Zero agent 9-1) uses herself any way necessary to get the job done, while her cybernetic backups (all with their own surprising abilities) pull out all the stops too, just as the entire production does the same via great design and execution. 009-1 doesn't just look great, it moves, explodes, and kicks you upside the head with pizazz too.
Check this one out on Anime Network starting now, or on DVD...
