Saishuu Heiki Kanojo (She, The Ultimate Weapon)

Summary: (animenewsnetwork) Shuji and Chise are two Hokkaido high school students barely starting a relationship with each other. Then, with no warning, a squadron of bombers from an unknown country destroy the city of Sapporo. All hope is lost when suddenly, the bombers are destroyed by a small red light floating across the sky. At this point, Shuji finds out that the one responsible for eliminating the enemy forces is Chise, who reveals herself as a cyborg engineered for mass-destruction.

Review: Oh god. I can't even think of this series without crying my eyes out. It's an amazing, touching, wonderful series, but at the same time, it's totally gutwrenching. I can't describe this series adaquately enough in a review. Just go watch it. The horrors of war have never seemed more real through a work of fiction. Emo, yes. But wonderful. I can't wait to see the movie, which will be in wide release next year.

Final Review: A+++

    I just agree completely. One of the most moving anime of all time. Orikasa Fumiko is amazing as the voice of Chise.
