"If one were to poll anime fans of the best or best looking anime there would probably be plenty that say one or more of the Appleseed films that have been made over the years. With a fairly good reputation it is no surprise that another entry into the Appleseed universe would go into production. Instead of a movie though, this time the story spans an entire thirteen episode series. Is there much more story to tell this time around or simply more drawn out than necessary?"
