I found this one to be rather weird. While the characters for the most part were pretty decent and well developed, there just was not anything that made them great.
The animation was really rather cool. I liked the effects that were given. The normal physics was pretty good as well. The physics concepts were really screwy and the social concepts were even worse. There seemed to be a big section of environmentalism that infested the thought process behind the storyline.
The music went well with the show.
Overall I enjoyed the byplay between the characters but the junk that littered the storyline just made the show mediocre at best. Well at least I was able to actually finish this show unlike some others that just tried to play as a serious political environmental or socialism statement.

I saw quite a few anime series and this is the only one that is full of rock music, which I love. The story is somewhat interesting about what can be done with DNA. Plus there are 9 girls to one man, which is a great concept if the society knew what sex was, instead of them all being born from a test tube.
The animation was average and the only problem that I had with it was that the 3d animation was reused constantly, not even from a different angle, but sometimes different backgrounds and that's it. After a few episodes, the animation got so repetitive that it got bothersome to watch. Still, it's a nice anime to watch.
