Viper's Creed

Viper's Creed is an action scifi anime series that I started watching way back in 2009. Such are the vagaries of fansubbed anime. ^_^

The action is the frenetic and very well choreographed, and is the main reason to watch this series. The story, while interesting and above average, does tend to take a back seat most of the time.

Initially the members of the Viper's Creed team are portrayed as mere mercenaries who have no interest in the city they are paid to protect. About half of the series is spent on de-constructing that image until it is impossible not to like them. Around this point, the real plot kicks in and turns the main characters into fugitives. Perfect timing!
