Steel Angel Kurumi is a popular anime series that aired on WOWOW from 1999 to 2000. The show follows the adventures of a young boy named Nakahito Kagura, who unexpectedly awakens a Steel Angel, a powerful and fully articulated robot girl named Kurumi. The two become fast friends and embark on a series of adventures filled with danger, intrigue, and romance.

The show features an all-star cast of voice actors, including Toshiyuki Morikawa as Nakahito Kagura, Tomomichi Nishimura as Dr. Ayanokoji, Hirotaka Suzuoki as Saki, Yasunori Matsumoto as Ohtaki, Masayo Kurata as Karinka, Rie Tanaka as Kurumi, Houko Kuwashima as Nadeshiko, Atsuko Enomoto as Uruka, Ai Orikasa as Kamihito, Michiko Neya as Excelia, Tamio Oki as Chief Toyoshima, Tomoko Kawakami as Himiko, Mie Sonozaki as Hikozaemon, Rikako Aikawa as Lime, Akemi Okamura as Mitsuka Satoru, Chiharu Tezuka as Maruma, and Chinami Nishimura as Tamayo.

The show is set in a fictional version of Japan in the early 20th century, where steam-powered technology has been advanced to the point where it is possible to create Steel Angels. These angels are robots designed to protect their masters, but they are also incredibly powerful and dangerous.

Nakahito discovers Kurumi in a hidden underground laboratory and awakens her with an accidental kiss. From that moment on, Kurumi becomes his loyal and devoted protector, willing to do anything to keep him safe. Together, they must fight against other Steel Angels who are controlled by evil and malevolent forces, as well as the many other dangers that threaten the safety of their world.

One of the unique features of Steel Angel Kurumi is its blending of different genres. The show has elements of science fiction, romance, action, and comedy, all wrapped up in a beautifully animated package. The action scenes are intense and exciting, with Kurumi displaying incredible feats of strength and agility. The romantic subplots are handled with a light touch, and the comedy adds some much-needed levity to the show.

Another standout feature of Steel Angel Kurumi is its gorgeous animation. The character designs are beautifully rendered, with each Steel Angel having a unique look and personality. The backgrounds are also stunning, with the show's version of early 20th century Japan brought to life in vivid detail.

Despite its many strengths, Steel Angel Kurumi does have a few shortcomings. The show can be a bit predictable in places, and it can sometimes feel like it's spinning its wheels with filler episodes. Additionally, some viewers may find the romantic subplots to be a bit too cutesy for their tastes.

Overall, however, Steel Angel Kurumi is a must-watch for anime fans. It's a visually stunning series with engaging characters, thrilling action, and just the right amount of romance and comedy. With its talented voice cast and memorable storylines, it's easy to see why this show has remained popular with audiences for over two decades.
