Armitage III (Japan)

Rating: ***

Divided into four installments.

Interesting stuff. Armitage is a female android with an attitude and all of the other similar model androids on Mars are being assassinated. Lots of socio-political undercurrents in this sci-fi series. The animation and character designs are average, with Armitage (of course) being a cute and perky young girl with a rather racy wardrobe. The series builds up to a violently shocking self-sacrificing battle, but right after this fantastic climax, everyone and everything seems to be okay (???) like nothing happened. Kinda weird.
