Mother’s Basement: Looking for a new SciFi anime to watch? Here are five more obscure shows that you can really sink your teeth into.
- Tokyo Magnitude 8.0 — Middle school student Mirai Onozawa is dissatisfied with her family circumstances and, in a moment of frustration, wishes to tear everything apart. Unfortunately, these destructive thoughts seem to come true in the form of a magnitude 8.0 earthquake just a few moments later.
- Kaiba — It is now possible to store memory data, so that the death of your body is not actually “death.” As memories are stored in databanks, they can be “transferred” to new bodies. Because so-called “memory trading” now occurs, it is now possible to steal memories and illegally alter them.
- The Irresponsible Captain Tylor — Justy Ueki Tylor had his life all planned out: join the military, get a cushy desk job, and then retire with a big fat pension check. The perfect plan… until he wandered into a hostage situation and somehow managed to save an admiral! Now Tylor – a man who wouldn’t know what discipline was if it bit him on the backside – has been made Captain of the space cruiser Soyokaze.
- Level E — In the present day, hundreds of extraterrestrial species walk the Earth. Some are pacifistic, others violent. Some are here for research purposes, others are career criminals. However, humans don’t know they are here.
- Dennou Coil — Eleven years after the introduction of internet-connected, augmented reality eyeglasses and visors, Yuuko Okonogi moves with her family to Daikoku City, the technological center of the emerging half-virtual world. Yuuko joins her grandmother’s “investigation agency” comprised of children equipped with virtual tools and powerful metatags. She quickly crosses paths with Yuuko Amasawa, an expert hacker of the virtual environment, as Amasawa relentlessly seeks to “unlock” the mystery of a computer virus that emerges from an inaccessible corrupted space.
