Texhnolyze takes place in the underground city of Lux (or "Lukuss"). The citizens of Lux have come to call it "The City" and treat it as a sentient force. Three factions vie for control of the city: the Organo, a conglomerate with ties to the criminal underworld in the prosthetics business ("Texhnolyze"); the Union, a populist group interfering with Organo's affairs; and Racan, a marauding group of Texhnolyzed youths. There is also the "Class", privileged individuals living in an adjacent sealed city, who are the intermediaries between Lux and the surface, and "Gabe", a village where the historic leaders of Lux live, worshiping Ran, a young prophetess who can see the future. The series follows Ichise, a prize fighter who loses a leg and an arm to satisfy an enraged promoter. As he struggles to accept his new robotic limbs and find a place where he belongs, he witnesses the major changes the city goes through.

I can hear the voice of the city...
   Pros: Fluid animation, believable characters, original music, outstanding dub, mature plot.      Cons: Slow pace, lack of humor and fan-service may be a turn-off to some.      Texnholyze is, in short, a dark, allegorical tale that is intended only for the most patient of viewers. With character designs from ABe (Serial Experiments Lain, Haibane Renmei), producer Yasuyuki Ueda (Ergo Proxy, Hellsing), and screenplay from Chiaki J. Konaka …
