Summary (from ANN)

Fifteen years in the future, by high-level scientific power, a violent battle takes place between Lacrima, that protects humanity, and Shangri-La, that plans the annihilation of all space-time. The key to stopping Shangri-La's invasion is a mysterious object known as "the Dragon's Torque." A group known as the Dragon Cavalry is being sent through space and time to find it. In the present, twelve-year old Haruka and her friend Yuu are contemplating running away from home when they meet a member of the Dragon Cavalry named Karasu (Crow). He believes that Haruka has the Dragon's Torque and claims to be Yuu from fifteen years in the future.

Scenes

In the terms of animation, I found this series to be beyond excellent. The battles are as sketchy and blurry as battles should be and at all the other parts of the story, where they're not fighting... it's smooth as butter on toast.

Characters

The characters moved constantly, it wasn't like a Ghost in the Shell, where it looks really really nice but only the characters mouths moved. I also think the animation style was incredibly unique, I haven't really seen much of it before. There are times where they use 3D graphics, and it worked really well.. compared to other series I've seen where it just throws you off.

Sound

The sound was awesome awesome awesome! The characters were played really well. Throughout the anime, there was a struggle that the story held for each one of the characters, and their voices showed that well. I'm speaking of the Japanese version, cause I haven't seen the English dub.

Plot

The plot was very entertaining. There were a lot of things that I didn't understand though. There were things dealing with quantum physics that I found very confusing, but the director explained them really well and even if you didn't understand it all, you still got the jist of the story. The director's knew that quantum physicists weren't going to be watching the show much.

Final Verdict: 10/10

      Pros: animation is something you have to see...the voice acting is top notch...a overall good story
      Cons: can get a little too geeky, techincal information can go over your head
      a diffrent kinda of anime, in both story and art. very fluid, more sketch like animation...it really lends to everyones motion...
