Argento Soma

Argento Soma

Sci-Fi, Drama, Mecha - 2000 (TV)
Ranking: 1193

In the year 2059, the earth has been plagued by aliens for several years. In an effort to learn more about these aliens, Dr. Noguchi and his assistants Maki Agata and Tukuto Kenishiro try to revive the professors experiment, a large Bio-Mechanical alien named Frank. During this process the alien comes to life and the lab is subsequently destroyed leaving Takuto the only survivor and the alien disappearing into the wilderness. While Frank roams the wilderness he meets Hattie, an emotionally distressed young girl whose parents are killed in the first close encounter war. Oddly enough she is able to communicate with Frank and soon after they are taken into custody by a secret agency known only as Funeral. Meanwhile, Takuto wakes up in a hospital bed with his life in shambles, and his face disfigured. Motivated by vengeance and heart break, Takuto accepts an offer from the mysterious Mr. X and receives a new identity as a ranking Funeral officer named Ryu Soma. (Source: ANN)

Reviews

   

If you are looking for a series with wall-to-wall action Argento Soma might be a bit slow for your tastes at points and you might want to subtract a star. Additionally, if you simply do not like mecha, you might want to subtract a star as there are plenty of SARG-versus-alien battles throughout this show. - ThemAnime

    

There are certainly more polished, gripping, complex, and even rewarding mecha dramas like this out there in this diverse quirky medium, but few play the humble card, and even fewer conclude with it resonating with such conviction. To that end, Argento Soma is a worthy experience in my book. - MyAnimeList (Otaking09)
