Anime — Crystal Blaze

One of Q2s series that I picked up as harmless watching, and to that low standard it delivered (when subs eventually arrived).

It's a sorta-contemporary, sorta-Left Coast private investigator story -- a conspiracy with weird science (turning abducted girls into short-lived walking glass statues), the disenchanted ex-cop and a bunch of associated dead-beats and weirdos who get involved. Once you see the pieces laid out for you, you know how it's going to unfold, modulo the level of minor character deaths; and in that it does not disappoint.

Wins a Black Lagoon award for anti-helicopter tactics.
