Format: DVD
At some time in the future a young woman named Iria and her brother Glen, both bounty hunters, join in an contract to rescue the passengers from the crash of a space transport. This mission takes a turn for the worse when the rescue team find themselves face to face with an indestructible killer - Zeiram. The result is disastrous; one team member killed, and Iria is forced to leave her brother behind to fight the monster. For the rest of the episodes Iria dedicates herself to solving the mystery of the Zeiram and saving her brother.
Several things set this 1995 OVA series apart from female (or male, for that matter) heroic anime. While the primary plot isn't entirely original the characters are notable and are allowed to develop well-crafted personalities. Iria is young, intelligent, and fiercely capable - a completely independent woman. Fujikuro is more than a little crooked, but, despite his antics, loyal to Iria. Bob - a bounty hunter turned into a computer ghost. And Kei, who is a younger reflection of Iria. All of these characters and others leave lasting impressions as the result of the find scripting and conceptual work of Keita Amemiya.
The artwork remains outstanding even by today's standards. The series is based on an original live action film, but animation can go where file can only follow at great cost. Character design (Masakazu Katsura) and set design (Amemiya, et. al.) combine to provide a fresh looking universe that combines traditional Japanese and Chinese elements with fantasy visions that rival Yoshitaka Amano, peopled with contraptions that Da Vinci would have envied.
The set includes an additional DVD with graphics and interviews with Amemiya, Katsura and several of the voice actors. If you are lucky enough to find the limited edition you will also get a metal container for the set. This is another of those 'must see' that both stretch the boundaries of anime and provide great entertainment as well.

This anime title is the best of it's kind. It has a nicely developed plot, a incredible monster, spellbinding animation, and the greatest anime heroine ever: Iria! She is a strong female character yet she isn't mean spirited. There is a shortage of strong female characters who don't have a mean streak. Iria is on the top of the heap. She is also extremely HOT man! The only other anime to rival my love for this movie is Sol Bianca, which has the same exact amount of charm. Buy Iria immediately if you love anime.

I really enjoyed this movie. I originally saw it on the sci-fi channel and loved it. Since then I've been dying to acutally own it. The story is fast paced and futuristic. An evil alien known as Zeiram has started attacking different planets and an intergalatic hunter known as Iria and her brother named Gren are dispatched to eliminate him. On the next last 3 episodes it is the conclusion of what happened. Overall it has great animation, a great storyline, and characters that you learn to love. If you love animes like Akira, Armitage III, or ghost in the shell i recommend you check out this movie

Iria is a young, brother worshipping little sister, training to be a bounty hunter like her older brother. This movie is loaded with action, adventure, and epic battles... basically, en all it has a lil something for everyone. If you like anime, this one is worth viewing.

This is, without a doubt, THE BEST anime of all time! Iria is a young bounty hunter, apprenticed to her big brother, Gren. A dangerous mission lands Iria and Gren face-to-face with the most dangerous (and most awesome ^_~) alien in the universe--Zeiram! Gren is captured and assimilated into Zeiram, and now it's up to Iria to destroy the creature. However, if she does that, she'll end up killing her brother too! This movie is definitely worth buying! I first saw it a couple years ago, and I just can't stop watching it. Besides that, Gren's a cutie! (Hey, Iria! Got any other brothers? Preferably single ones. ^_~)
