Silent Mobius is the tale of Tokyo in the year 2026, in which "Entities", demons and evil spirits, have begun to overrun the city. In response to this, a special police force consisting of six women with special abilities (magic, technology, etc.) is formed to stop the growing problem.Each story details the life and past of one of these women while dealing with a case during the present.

Silent Mobius shows similar influences from Masamune Shirow's Appleseed, Dominion and Ghost in the Shell. Some scenes even seem to visually come straight out of Blade Runner. The art is strong and consistent and action scenes flow well. Characters all seem have a different look to define them by.

The stories are well-written and involve good character development and interaction without overwhelming the reader with theory and high-tech. If you want to read a good action-oriented story with a seasoning of magic and technology, Silent Mobius is a good start. Consider this Masamune Shirow light. The details are just as good, just not as heady. You don't need a college degree to understand what's going on.
