A sci-fi action comedy, Daphne in the Brilliant Blue is an anime series created in 2004. The story is set in a world where the majority of the Earth is covered in water due to global warming, leaving civilisation to survive on floating cities. The orphan Maia Mizuki and her best friend Tsukasa Takagi made a promise to both work together at the elite Ocean Agency, which only accept the most gifted, exceptional students for entrance. However, to Maia's dismay she is rejected, where as her friend Tsukasa is accepted! To add insult to injury, Maia is evicted from her house - and with nowhere to go, she wanders around looking for a job in the wrong side of town... where she promptly gets taken as a hostage! "Rescued" by the curious organisation "Nereids", she is given a place to stay in exchange for helping with the organisation's dangerous missions!

The main focus of the show is the jobs that the Nereids agency have to complete - each mystery presenting its own slice of action. The timid main character Maia has to put up with a lot: bossy leader Rena; friendly mechanic Shizuka; boisterous maniac Gloria; and push-over manager (and Hitler look-alike) Tsutomu - not to mention the repeatedly-returning Wong-Chang-Lee family of criminals. But it's hard to tell who represents the greater threat to Maia's safety - is it the criminals, or her colleagues?!

Despite its light hearted approach, the series is recommended for only older viewers - it is fairly "ecchi" (rude), with a lot a fanservice provided by the girls' extremely revealing combat-suits (which can't be all that useful in their line of work)!

Overall, Daphne in the Brilliant Blue is a fairly fun series to watch with an entertaining storyline that rises above being a regular fanservice anime. While the first few episodes lack an over arching plot, there are hints at something much more interesting developing. If you don't mind the excessive fanservice, and like the idea of a "Charlie's Angels"-type theme, I would definitely recommend this series.

Daphne in the Brilliant Blue is a 24 episode anime series made in 2004 and directed by Ryuuji Ikebata. There is also a manga based off the anime by the same name.
