A young woman awakens in a desolate town with no inhabitants. She’s unable to read signposts or remember anything about who she is or what she’s doing there. All she can do is recognize the symbols that appear on her hands, identifying her as Agarta, devourer of dragons. Alone and in an unfamiliar place, Agarta must remember the reason she is there and defeat the evils within.
BLAME! is a very dark and abstract set of 6 shorts which are based on the manga by Tsutomu Nihei. The "story" (if it can be called that) revolves around a man named Killy: a human living amongst clones and androids. His task, it seems, is to collect things known as "net-genes", and to help find the remaining humans that may or may not exist.
Enjoy sci-fi shorts that don't make a whole lot of sense (though their incomprehensible head-games are most agreeable entertainment) and look really cool? Then you'll likely enjoy either one of these - though BLAME! is by far the denser mind-screw of the two, and G-9's action is admittedly lackluster by comparison. Still, they're weird and cool looking.
As valondar said, both of these anime are realy weird and look very cool, but what I found more in common is the feeling after watching, where you find yourself scratching your head and asking "wtf was that just now?"
In medieval Europe, the peasants Jeanne and Jean are in love. But when they finally decide to marry, Jean discovers he is required to pay a tax to the baron; and having insufficient means to pay, Jeanne is raped by the baron instead. After this traumatizing event, Jeanne is drawn by the Devil into a forbidden, occult world of power and lust. Witchcraft, orgies, assaults and surrealism abound in this erotic, psychedelic arthouse film.
While their stories are wildly different, both deal with a strong female central character. But more than that, the art style is very similar in both anime. If you want more of the Still-Images-Animation, look into both of these anime.
In ancient times, the great Mother gave birth to human beings to populate the Earth, but she also created a race of demons to be mankind's arch enemy, to teach them how to fight fear. In present day Tokyo, Shinjuku has been destroyed by a mysterious light, and someone -- or something -- is commiting terrible murders. The only hope for Tokyo's citizens is Tsunami Shijyo, a demon fighting stranger who will soon be up against the greatest evil the world has ever known...
Left with a feeling of "wtf", both G-9 and Twilight are rather non-sensical fantasy romps that will rely on the viewer having a certain measure of intellegence. Not explaining everything in detailed depth, some may find that these shows are unfinished - however, they act more as a catalyst for thought and imagination.
Short, snappy and actionfilled, I think viewers who enjoy one will like the other.
