Hannah's comments:I had quite high expectations about this animé. Donīt ask me why, but somehow the trailers from this series and the music inspired me to watch Karas. Now that I have seen the whole series, which contained 6 episodes, I am rather disappointed. I didnīt expect that the story would be so similar to the story of Ghost in the Shell films, or the live-action series Matrix. However, quite bad or even very bad copied. Even the story of Karas is very complicated even if it in the first hand, doesnīt seem like that. The armour of Karas reminds me about the armour from the middle century or nearby, even if their abilities are like you can expect for 21th centuary. The best parts of the Karas are the high richness of colours, the high quality of animation and the excellent music. If you want to see this series, you shall do that only for the music.
