Little android girl saves the world - naturaly
Enter one gruff bounty hunter names Roy. As he chases a criminal, an android girl with green hair falls from the sky saving Roy from being shot full of holes. From that point, the girl, who has no memories, follows Roy around until he grows to accept her as family.
Of course, there are many other characters. The lady and her daughter who runs the bounty hunter agency Roy works for. The three siblings who are criminals, but like Robin Hoods, only steal for good causes. And there are the four female police officers who fade in and out of the plot as the episodes progress.
Like most Gonzo productions, there is a lot to like. The animation and designs are very good. It's a solid story, but if you've seen other Gonzo shows, there isn't much to recommend Solty Rei over any other. That's why I only give it an "Okay" rating. There are certainly worse anime out there, but Gonzo has definitely done more interesting works like Samurai 7, Vandread, Burst Angel and, Last Exile.
