In the future, the Third World War has passed.  The world is in chaos, with many dead, wreckage everywhere and even turning some into a new kind of species.  They called themselves "Needless", and they each have a different ability, known as "Fragments".  Now the war between humans and Needless begin...
 
The cast includes: Endo Aya, Kitamura Eri, Katou Emiri, Makino Yui and you could say Chihara Minori but she doesn't really talk.  Characters that stand out are: Endo Aya's character, shouting "PRIEST!!!" a lot and Chihara Minori's written dialogue on a notebook.
 
Aiming to be both action and comedy, in the early episodes of Needless, the balance between both is fair.  Later on, it focuses more on action.  The action parts are ok but later on, the combos of different Needless powers kick in - which then becomes ridiculous.
 
The animation is good.  The dialogue is great.  The background music is mainly electric guitar/metal type music.  It suits the action parts quite well.
 
The first opening theme is great but the endings are humorous and messed up.
 
The story was ok but it's nothing special.  This 24-episode anime does drag a bit nearing the end.  For those hardcore action fans, this anime might not be fulfilling but it does offer some good fighting scenes.
