Chrome Shelled Regios is an anime series that takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity is on the brink of extinction due to a virus called the "Contamination." As a result, humans have created mobile cities called Regios, which can move around in search of resources and safety.

The story follows a young man named Layfon Alseif, who comes to the Academy City of Zuellni with a mysterious past. Zuellni is one of the Regios, and is home to a school that trains students in a variety of combat and academic subjects. Layfon enrols in the school hoping to start a new life and leave his troubled past behind, but he soon discovers that the challenges he faces at Zuellni are just as daunting as anything he has faced before.

The series is well-known for its unique setting and world-building. The Regios are fascinating, as they are essentially moving cities that run on energy from powerful crystals called kei. Each city has its own culture, traditions and social hierarchy, making for an interesting backdrop to the story.

The characters in Chrome Shelled Regios are also a highlight of the show. Layfon, the protagonist, is a complex and brooding figure who struggles with his own past and the expectations of those around him. He is joined by a cast of equally complex characters, such as the strong-willed captain of the 17th Platoon, Nina Antalk, and the stoic and enigmatic Haia Salinvan.

The show is also notable for its action scenes, which are intense and well-choreographed. Characters use a variety of weapons and techniques to battle fierce creatures called Filth Monsters, which are mutated creatures that roam the world outside the Regios. The battles are often exhilarating, and the animation is impressive.

Despite its strengths, Chrome Shelled Regios is not without its flaws. The show can be confusing at times due to its complex world-building, and some of the character arcs feel rushed or undeveloped. The pacing can also be slow at times, which may deter viewers who are looking for a fast-paced action anime.

Overall, Chrome Shelled Regios is a solid anime series that will appeal to fans of science-fiction and action. While it has its flaws, the unique setting, complex characters, and thrilling action scenes make it a worthwhile watch.

Chrome Shelled Regios is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (24 episodes). The series first aired on January 10, 2009.
