| Confusing but with interesting imagery
Doomed Megalopolis is considered one of the classic anime (like Akira or Wicked City) that got fairly wide distribution in North America and introduced many people to anime.

Unfortunately, while it contains plenty of interesting (and some disturbing) imagery, the story is frequently confusing and you can easily get lost. Apparently it is based on an original 10 volume novel by Aramata that would be hard to follow for anyone not well versed in Japanese history and religion. The director even mentions in an interview that the viewer should read the novel to understand many of the parts that are not well explained in this 4 episode series.

It was my wife's first viewing of some of the more disturbing type of creatures (a slug with a male organ for a head for example) that appear in some anime, but I think she could have done without.

Not particularly recommended.
