See Karas | Selenite ED for more.

Produced by the makers of Speed Racer. Karas are guardians who serve entities collectively called Yurine. Together, they preside over cities and maintain the balance between the humans and yōkai (spirits and/or demons) who peacefully coexist (though the former doesn’t realize the existence of the later). However, the Karas of Tokyo goes rouge and and lets loose mechanized yōkai on the unsuspecting human populace.

Watch it at Youtube: part 1, 2, 3, 4.

Review: First timers may have to watch the first episode 2-3 times to fully take in whats going on. It’s visual choas the first time around and won’t make sense because the viewer is dropped in the middle of the story. The show is really entertaining if you can get past the initial confusion. Its an amazing blend of 2D and 3D animation with hollywood style action. I’m always blown away when I go back to watch the first episode.
