Best Science Fiction: Kaiba

Kaiba deserves an extensive review, but I am not going to write it now. This is a synopsis from wiki.

It is now possible to store memory data, so that the death of your body is not actually “death”. As memories are stored in databanks, they can be “transferred” to new bodies. Because so-called “memory trading” now occurs, it is now possible to steal memories and illegally alter them.

Society has fallen apart as authority has become lost and stagnant.

One day, a man awakens in a ruined room. His name is Kaiba. He has no memories, but he does have a pendant with a picture of an unknown woman inside…

In the skies are roiling clouds and electrical storms, impossible to pass without losing one’s memories; above them lies the elusive realm of the rich and powerful, who barter others’ bodies and memories for their own enjoyment and longevity. Below lies a troubled and dangerous world where good bodies are hard to come by and real money is scarce.

After suddenly being attacked, Kaiba escapes into space, and during his travels meets all sorts of people and regains his memories. Throughout it, he continues to be troubled by the world’s problems, as well as his own existence. (Source)

  1. I like how you made different categories that cover a wide range of things and from what I’ve seen this year and your choices, I’d have to agree with most 🙂 Happy New Year!

  2. Very well done! Many of the verdicts I agree with. Some of the rest I can’t assent to – not because I disagree with you but mainly because I was unable to follow a lot of the series profiled here. orz

    Happy new year!

  3. Ugh, tried to finish reading the post but the combination of separate page formatting and losing consciousness due to illness forces me to give up prematurely.

    Good analysis but only one gripe. Needs more ef 🙂

    1. Keep in mind that this is a post for the entire year. I mention only about a dozen titles and watch about three shows per season. This is a relatively moderate consumption compared to the number of shows some people devour 😛

  4. Very good list. I agree with most of your picks or at least see the logic.

    I’d forgotten about the musical from episode 6 of Kure-nai; definitely one of the funniest episodes of the year.
