That's the name of a new anime that started in Japan recently (2 episodes).

Not much mechas right now, so I put it here (though there's some sort of security robots and cyborg, kinda like Chobits, in a "relatively" less shojo way^^).

It's the new serie from the studio that did Cowboy Bebop and Samurai Champlo I think, so expect a relatively realistic style, and a good realisation.

The settings look to be a relatively near future, like 2050 or something.
I really don't know much about the story and can't really talk about.
For now it's a bit cliché, well it's cyberpunk, dark, mysterious, relatively violent, the main character is a hot but dark chick, there's some weird humanoids, a government who seems to know more than you'd think, police is hiding some events, etc etc... well it's cliché but good, so I'm waiting for the story to unfold to know if it's worth it, but as a proud fan of Blame! and other dark cyberpunk/SF stuff, it's just the ambience I like :D

Oh and they took a song by radiohead as the ending. I'm not really a fan, but it's quite surprising. I don't know if the director just like the song, or if it's supposed to be related to the lyrics...
