Anime review: Urda

4 December 2003


Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe Hang on, what's that doing here? The characters are less impressive than the effects

5 episodes, total running time about 30 minutes.

Low-grade animation (sub-Hoshi no Koe), cel shaded - apparently mostly one man's work. Tech bits are quite pretty. Voice talent is good (the four principal characters are all female and their voices are distinctive, for a start). Story isn't anything new to someone who's read a reasonable amount of SF, but still well-executed.

Overall, nothing really special but worth a look if you happen to meet it.
