Needless is an action-packed anime series that centers around a post-apocalyptic world where almost everything has been destroyed. This world is plagued by mysterious creatures known as "Needless" who have incredibly powerful abilities and are feared by the remaining survivors.

The plot follows the protagonist, Adam Blade, a teenager who has been blessed with extraordinary powers. He is on a quest to find his long-lost missing sister, Eve, who was taken by the evil corporation Simeon. On the way, he encounters allies and enemies who help him and hinder him in his quest.

Adam is one of the most powerful Needless of all, with the ability to control gravity. His strength and speed are unmatched, and he is a formidable fighter. He is joined by other powerful Needless, including Cruz Schild, who is superhumanly fast, and Setsuna, who can teleport. Together they form a team capable of taking on even the toughest of foes.

The antagonists of the show are the members of Simeon, a corporation that seeks to take control of the world using their army of superpowered beings. The leader of Simeon is a man known only as "Adam Arclight." He is the most powerful Needless of all and is nearly invincible. He shares a striking resemblance to Adam Blade and is likely to possess some personal connection to him.

Adam and his team must face off against Simeon's forces and confront the truth about their own powers and origins. They learn that their powers might not be entirely their own and that there might be more to their existence than they thought.

The show features an abundance of thrilling action scenes that are matched by the series' unique depiction of blood and gore. The animation of the series is impressive, with excellent fight choreography and dynamic camera angles that accentuate the intensity of each battle.

Aside from its action and gore, the show also has humorous elements that add to its charm. The characters have personalities that complement each other, and their interactions are often light-hearted and entertaining.

The show's soundtrack is also noteworthy. The music sets the tone for each scene perfectly, with its pumping beats and heart-pumping rhythm that matches the action sequences perfectly.

Overall, Needless is an exhilarating anime series that features intense action, an intriguing plot, and a cast of memorable characters. It is a must-see for fans of the action genre, and newcomers alike.

Needless is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (24 episodes). The series first aired on July 2, 2009.
