In the near future, demons with the ability to fuse with machinery and infest corpses have begun terrorizing mankind. Dubbed 'Amalgams', no one knows how they are created, or where their abilities originate from. As the random outbreaks continue, the general population begins to panic, demanding protection from these vicious beasts; enter XAT, a military unit created solely to counter the Amalgam threat. Despite being a highly skilled unit, however, they find themselves hard pressed to contain the threat, let alone subdue it. To compound matters further, a new type of Amalgam surfaces that proves even more devious than the rest - one made from the human, not machine. Yet all is not lost, two of these new Amalgams - the feisty Gerd and the mysterious Blue - actively oppose the others. With the odds stacked against them, will they be able to protect mankind while simultaneously being shunned by it?

Reading comments and reviews about this anime, one will be really confused if it’s really worth it or not. It is true that it has all the win formula in it but the experienced eye (like moi) is able to see thing clearer and thus it wasn’t that hard to figure out the problems in execution.

So it looks like everyone else who has reviewed this anime thus far have been quite critical of it. 

However, I myself found it quite enjoyable. I thought it had a rich story and deep plot, filled with great themes, symbolism, and imagery (though, you probably need to know a bit about Christianity/Catholicism to catch that). Some notable themes include finding meaning in suffering... read more
