Anime mini-review: Solty Rei


Solty Rei

Don't ask me what the title is supposed to mean. This latest from Gonzo is a delight to the eye, but little more. At first it looked promising - there's the bounty hunter who still searches for his daughter who disappeared ten years ago, believing that she is still alive, awesome power suits, mechs..

But then, enter Mary Sue.

Silliest hairstyle of 2005, unnatural hair color, her hair stays that way, even after she sleeps, has superhuman powers stronger than those granted by the aforementioned power suits, and she doesn't know who she is or where she came from. Saves the bounty hunter guy's life twice in the first episode.

Oh yeah, and she's bullet proof. I'm not kidding here. If you can't stand Mary Sues, steer clear of this one.
