Xenosaga: The Animation is a 12 episode anime series that is based on the popular video game series of the same name. It is a retelling of the first game, Xenosaga Episode I: Der Wille zur Macht for the Playstation 2 console, and stays fairly faithful to it. Much like the game series, the show is a sci-fi fantasy filled with biblical metaphors. The show was made clearly for fans of the games but fans of animation may enjoy it too. The show is about humans living in a time where the earth had been abandoned, 4000 years ago. Now humanity is being threatened by creatures called the Gnosis and the story of the show focuses on the main characters struggle to survive the invasion. The story also deals with the concept of finding humanity in artificial intelligence and free will.
