genre: Science Fiction / Fantasy

For over 5 billion years, the angels from Eden have been watching over the Earth and measuring the positive and negative sides of the Earthians. Each team from Eden is comprised of two checkers; one positive and one negative. Chihaya and Kagetsuya have only recently become a team and are currently in Shibuya, Tokyo. Chihaya, a positive checker, is a very unusual angel. Unlike his partner and the rest of the angels of Eden, Chihaya has dark hair and dark eyes. All others in Eden are fair haired. Why Chihaya is different is a definite mystery.

Recommended for Mature Audiences - The first OAV itself is fairly tame although those who are devout Christian/Catholic may want to be aware that there are references to prominent religious figures in a completely non-conventional manner. While there is violence it is neither extreme nor graphic, although the reason for development of the biohumanoid project brings up many ethical questions. Subsequent OAVs introduce topics which make the OAV inappropriate for younger viewers, including drug use to deal with terminal illness, as well as one attempted same sex seduction.
