Lol, basic Japanime formula, not that I'm complaining.
Either a mech based story or a school girl story, or both, and a big USA cowboy attitude (yipee kayay) and all.
Wow - as Bryan has said, animation and technology have come quite a ways since the early Appleseed days.

Recently blind bought based off of my enjoyment with previous Appleseed anime and cgi, Ex Machina in particular is a favorite of mine. Alpha's story gets the job done but what I was mainly looking for was some eye and ear candy, got mine and then some. The CGI on display looks superb - art direction, animation, colors and overall detail looked top notch, but the transfer does have its share of terrible aliasing problems. As if a midrange gpu was used and did not have enough juice to render some scenes with antialiasing. The contrast and banding weren't as bothersome. The audio is where it's at, it's a top tier mix. Lows, highs, and everything in between comes through loud, crisp and crystal clear. It's grand. I listened to it in English (which I presume is the native language for this one?), it sounded fine over my system and did not notice any lip syncing issues.
