  • I can’t really say I’m impressed with anything in Avenger, but the opening theme song does sound cool, even if the lyrics don’t make much sense
  • The fight scene animation is interesting because a strange acrobatic style of fighting

      Avenger Episode 1 starts in a bleak wasteland, on the planet Mars in the distant future. There a gladiator named Layla Ashley sits in a tub talking to herself about asking someone to try to kill her. A bunch of robotic servants, known as dolls bring her breakfast but make her angry by being too talkative and she breaks them. Meanwhile a Barbaroi, an outsider, who is also a gladiator requests that the robotic doll named Nei take him to fight Layla Ashley, who

      has sparked the interest of a doll breeder, or mechanic named Speedy.

      Avenger is a very strange anime, and when I say strange, I mean confusing. I had a hard time understanding the setting and the world that the story takes place in, and it’s not clearly explained very well, you don’t even know you’re on Mars until the end of the episode. I had to watch the episode twice because I didn’t understand it very well.

      The English dub is decent, but nothing very memorable, except ...


      • for Jamison Price as Volk, but Deborah Sale Butler is average as Layla Ashley. Elisa Fiorillo sounds fine as the doll Nei, but none of these performances are worth lavishing praise on. Rick Robles as Speedy sounds nice and he does a good job.

        The animation looks decent too and the character designs are alright. I can’t really say I’m impressed with anything in Avenger, but the opening theme song does sound cool, even if the lyrics don’t make much sense. The

        fight scene animation is interesting because a strange acrobatic style of fighting. The music is nice as the background score, but that’s about the only saving grace of the anime is that it does have nice music, and some interesting concepts but it doesn’t help that it seems to have been poorly executed.

        As a note to parents Avenger contains nudity, language and violence but is suitable for ages 13 and up.

        Avenger is available on DVD from Bandai Entertainment and you can buy it at RightStuf.com or Amazon.com.
