NieA7 is one of the most enjoyable series I have seen in a while. It is more straightforward than Lain. Although NieA7 is not as complex as Lain, it is still really enjoyable.
Packaging: The overall packaging quite ok, though I wish there is a box with it, not just a multi-layer DVD case. It also comes with some cards featuring Yoshitoshi Abe’s art works, which are quite nice to have in your collection.
Story/Characters: The storyline is really good. I quite enjoy it. It is a mixture of Drama, Comedy and SF. The Character designs are fantastic. Yoshitoshi Abe is really talented. The style is simple, but yet complex.
Sounds/Music: Both English and Japanese dubbings are quite well done. I like both of them. The opening theme of the series is quite strange, but yet unique and the ending theme is pleasant to listen to.
Extras: I must say I am a bit disappointed about the extras. There are only a small proportion of extras on the 3 DVDs. Although some music videos are quite good to watch, it is still lack of extras.
NieA7 is quite a unique experience. It is quite different from Lain. In fact it is nothing like Lain, but it is an excellent show. I highly recommend it!
