We all received great news about the upcoming features for the PlayStation 3. The system is finally going to offer home theater entertainment to everyone’s consoles. So of course, us being that curious, we took the opportunity to explore this a bit more. As an exclusive from Studio BONES, famous for shows such as RahXephon, Full Metal Alchemist, and Eureka 7, Xam’d is a truly unique and amazing episode that’s exclusive to the PS3 for all anime lovers. Much to our amazement, a little hidden gem was glistening: Xam’d Lost Memories.
Xam’d Lost Memories’ first episode reveals little to the plot, but gets you wanting to learn much more. This is what we do know: there is currently a war going on between the northern and southern governments and the Sentan island is a military free zone, which happens to be the home of the main character Akiyuki and other main recurring characters. As for the episode itself, we were impressed, but it’s from Studio Bones and their quality usually leaves anyone asking: what else should we expect? The fact that it’s good isn’t too shocking. The production quality is another great feature. The art direction is simply vivid, and the voiceovers are more than enough to keep anyone delved in the story, which we can’t reveal for good cause. The only slight downside was that the episode is that it’s a bit slow paced for all you FPS fans out there, but I personally never felt bored. It always felt like there was something big coming that would make you jump out of your seat.
Overall, this first episode draws anyone in enough to see more – praise for something so knew. With new releases each week, all at the very fair price of 3.99 in both SD and HD format, you can’t go wrong.
