In Japan in the year 2035, an accident known as the "Burst" occurs during a research project, spawning an out-of-control artificial life form called "Matter" that has spread throughout the Kurobe Gorge. The research city that was once hailed as the hope for humanity is cordoned off by the government. Two years later, 15-year-old Aiko Tachibana, who lost her family in the Burst, learns something unbelievable from Yuya Kanzaki, a new student at her school. A secret is hidden within her body, and the answer to the puzzle lies at the "Primary Point" that was the center of the Burst. Aiko resolves to infiltrate the restricted area, escorted by a team of divers and with Yuya as her guide. When boy meets girl with the fate of humanity in their hands, what new truth will come to light?

Overall A.IC.O Incarnation wasn't terrible by any stretch of the imagination.  I would recommend this to someone who has a Netflix account and also suffers from a medical condition called boredom. And only if you're kinda desperate for something to watch. I never once thought that this was low quality or poorly animated... but watching well drawn malignant tumors attacking people gets kinda boring.  I thought the story was very strong and well plotted out (for the most part).  If you pay attention, you can call just about every plot twist incarnation has to throw at ya.   There's definitely a sense of satisfaction in figuring it out before they spell em out.  Either way,  I didn't think it was terrible. The sound got a low score due to the obnoxious reuse of sound effects.  Just repetitive "bang bang bang" in any given action scene.  There wasn't enough effort given to varying it... very tedious and dull.  Followed by the same few slimy sound effects.  I could tell we were in for a treat when the first action scene kicked in.  Just really basic 80's techno...  news flash, the 80's doesn't want you taking their epically meh theme music. The only HUGE problem with this anime is the characters.  They're really boring with hardly any personality but at least they're consistent and believable.  Most chars don't get a backstory and what they say on screen generally doesn't add anything.  There's just a ton of secondary chars that get A LOT of screen time that I feel next to nothing for. I can relate to Andy Dufresne after watching this anime.  The middle was how Andy broke out.  The final three episodes is Andy actually being free. If you got a Netflix account with some time to kill, it's worth a watch.    I'm happy they left it at 12 episodes.
