    Bounen no Xamdou: Xam`d: Lost Memories

    Hm, I am very suprised lots of people didn't watch, haven't paid attention to Bones' newest anime or at least haven't started a discussion thread about this



    from anidb:

    Exclusively available title to PlayStation Store's video download service for the PlayStation 3 (PS3) and PSP consoles.


    Akiyuki, the main character of the animated series, lives on Sentan Island, a land that has preserved its status as a free and peaceful island in a world consumed by fighting between the Northern and Southern Governments. All of this changes when Akiyuki boards a bus along with a mysterious white-haired girl who transforms his arm with the lost memories and power of Xam'd.

    As Xam'd, Akiyuki goes on a rampage and is saved when a foreign girl with red hair named "Nakiami" calms him down, taking him back to her postal vessel. Akiyuki now must gain control of his powers and use them against the Northern Government's latest weapons, known as "Humanforms". Travelling the world on a postal vessel, Akiyuki hopes to return home one day, but until then he befriends other passengers on the boat.


    episodes:
    Batch episode 1&2

    and the great english opening:

    How do I get the PSP versions? I heard that I'd have to download them from a PS3 and then transfer them to my PSP.

    I honestly don't know, one thing I know: this one hasn't got a lot of publicity prolly got to do with sony contract, might look into a site of sony or the bounen no xamdou official site

    Since you recommended it koen I just watched the 2 eps and it was amazing, I really like the animation and the story which seems a bit twisted atm. Kinda reminds me of "This ugly yet beautiful world" and "Overman King Gainer" or w/e it was called due to that Akiyuki guy that transforms into Xam'd.

    Re: Bounen no Xamdou: Xam`d: Lost Memories

    same feeling over here, ryu. I love the animation too and indeed the story seems a bit twisted atm. It's like a story that sets out not much but that'll prolly explain a lot later on. The memory of xamd, their people, the war, etc It's a bit sad that this serie isn't as public as other series (referring to the psp/ps3 - sony distribution).

    Well atm the subs came out pretty quick. I preferred the batch over the episode 1 dl I dled previous week (quality wasn't as good), and let's hope subs come out and we can enjoy this.

    Oh and a question: how do you feel about that transformation? I have decided not to eat during watching it

    Well it's kinda strange, you don't know if Akiyuki is a robot or an humanoid being or an android or w/e, it's more like an ALIENisation with the "gems" that come out of his skin, but I like it it's kinda cool, the strange proportion looks goods to with the HUUUUUUUGE head, big arms and small legs.

    Btw, I was totally hypnotised by the OP, it's so good.

    I totally agree about the OP. It was stunning. As the character design, I really love it as well. Although some (slimy) scenes were disturbing... and the ship's design is just hilarious.

    It's good, I think it's from the same guys that did the batch.

    I felt the sound quality was a little lower than the last two.

    Re: Bounen no Xamdou: Xam`d: Lost Memories

    I started today to this anime as soon as i saw BONES E7 was a great anime too, so i wanted to check this one. Watched the first ep, getting second...i think i'll give my comment later; but i must say this.

    This anime lacks something...but what? It feels cold to me...

    EDIT : I found...this anime lacks some good music.

    I'm getting used to the opening song, it sounds so cool now Will try their other songs.
    4th episode was good one, watching Akiyuki as he tries to be useful in the ship reminded me Renton a lot. That ship's commander Zeygen (or wasnt it?) seems like a bad person, we'll see it in next episode.

    And as i thought, Dr.Ryuzo had some ties with humanforms.
