This review will be for all 6 movies(the entire show)~no spoilers~. Right off the bat this show draws in your attention with awesome powers & action. The basic outline is, all over the world their's people who have some type of ability that most don't even realize they have. Some of them(most of them) find out in a not so fun manner causing the others to be fearful and resent those with abilities. There's a secret order thats hunting all of these people down, thats basically all you know within the first 5 minutes. Now as the story goes, the pacing of the movies are absolutely perfect. No where does it seem like anything is being rushed to fast or not given enough time. The show has such a diverse cast of characters all with such unique personalities & abilities its really easy to get into this show and start getting attached. The animation is great, studio Bones is well known for being one of the best, they definitely follow through with this series. The artwork of everything is just so appealing, the characters, the buildings, to the greenery its all very beautiful. The sound effects & music are great, nothing feels out of place at all. The ending credit song is a great match, really gets you hype for the next episode(movie). The dub is great, not a single character feels off or out of place. It almost gave me a little bit of a "Guilty Crown" feeling, in terms of being hunted & also being the heroes. If your looking for an awesome action anime with really nice visuals and a very diverse set of abilities & cast this is definitely something you want to check out. The story may not be something as deep as something like "Gurren Lagann" but its a good story. It knows what it wants to do, sets out and does it, a cool story with cool fights, powers & good animation/artwork.
4/5 Why? Its overall just a good series, enjoyable story, great artwork & animation, great diversity of characters & abilities. Really I can't think of any complaints. If your a fan of action & abilities/powers then you will more than likely enjoy this. Studio Bones has yet to disappoint me. Definitely watch at least the first 2 movies before you decide if your going to stick with it or not though.
