What started out as a simple shortcut put Katsumi Liqeuer in the wrong place at the wrong time -- in the middle of a battle against mysterious monsters known as the Lucifer Hawk. Stranger yet is Katsumi's uncanny ability to wield powers that dispatch the enemy, powers that have the AMP -- the Attacked Mystification Police Department -- very interested. Now, with the additional pressure to join in the cause and the Lucifer Hawk out to kill her, Katsumi must decide to embrace or deny her fate!
Silent Mobius is an OVA from 1991 that combines elements of alchemy and occultism with science fiction in a way that is very appealing. For 1991 the animation is quite good, especially effects like reflections and flashing lights on spaceships. The backgrounds are also very distinctive.The highlight of the anime for me was the monster designs, which are scary as hell. Think John Carpener's The Thing. I reccomend not watching the subbed version, as the English voice actor for Katsumi is somewhat annoying. The story is confusing because near the beginning of the OVA, the story slides into a flashback without telling you that it is a flashback, then sliding out of the flashback towards the end. The characters are all weak, but the entire thing is only 55 minutes long. The sound effects and music are good, I especially liked the creepy squishy sounds the monsters made. At a few points the picture would begin to shake, like someone shaking a camera. I don't know if this is just a flaw of the animation of a bad transfer. One other thing, there are a double of scenes that are very reminiscent of tentacle rape. Things don't go that far though. Overall this is a flawed but enjoyable anime that has been unjustly overlooked.
