Aeon Flux was my first experience with an anime like cartoon, being that it is a science fiction themed series I thought that I would give it a try.
Man, I'm glad I did. This show is spectacular! Moody and stylish, AF drops you right in to a futuristic, Blade Runner-esque society. It's dark, and strangely beautiful. The voice acting is good, and the story lines are strong.
This show was something rare and something very different. It still amazes me that this ever got onto TV. It is a series that is at once very philosophical while being also very surreal. Each episode explores some new twisted dimension of thought.
I would hesitate to show this to small children as there is some violence and mild sexual innuendo. The deeper story of each episode would also elude a small child.
Other than that, I highly suggest it!
