8 Man After is a cyborg anime.  It is reminiscent of Robocop; however, the creation story of 8  Man isn't as cruel.  The world is futuristic, people are getting cyborg implants and commiting crimes.  The pinnacle of cyborgs, is one with a cybernetic brain but human personality.  The technology for the cyborg brain is top secret and the criminals on the street have yet to access it.  For the brain to handle cybernetic implants a drug is needed.  There is also a "love story" that isn't very well done in my opinion.  The overall OVA is extremely memorable due to 8 Man having to "fight" to keep himself from being just another killing machine.  The most memorable aspect about the animation is when 8 Man runs faster than the eye and the swaying motion they portray.  It's awesome.
