Carbon Market. Girl with a boomerang. The world's skyscrapers wrapped in foilage.

What more do you want?

This also has the best OP I've heard yet this season.

ROFL @ the transvestite comment.

Seems critics across the boards are agreeing Shangri-la's the anime of choice for the spring season (alongside FMA2).

I'll be following this week by week.

Yeah, you can more or less see it at first glance due to the production values, the animation costs alone must be staggering.

But it's not that so much, as it is putting that money, that large amount of money, in a shounen/seinen show, with a what, 12-13 year old GIRL in the role of an ACTION-FIGHTING protagonist?

How much of that do you see directed at an adult audience? Anywhere? I mean you had Noein, Lain, but they were passive characters, not fighting ones. And this shit doesn't even exist in Western media anyway.

Previously, these roles were always filled by boys or men. Not so anymore.

It's a good thing.
