In a category of its own.
For anyone that thinks anime is for overgrown kids, this is a counter-example. To begin with, the music from ALI Project is nothing short of amazing. It varies from techno arrangements of Mozart's Der Holle Rache to ragtime. All the characters are playing in the virtual reality/massive multi-player role playing game. But there is something odd about this game. There seems to be some blurring between the real world and the game world. In addition the game is sometimes not under the control of the system administrators. The story revolves around trying to find the mythical Key of the Twilight. Each of the main characters has a very distinct and unique personality and the interplay between them keeps the story moving. Don't expect constant action sequences but do expect to think about the story while you are stuck humming some of the tunes that are played throughout the series. I also recommend you get the Volume 1 collectors edition which includes the soundtrack disk.
