At first sight didn't look much, now one of my faves!
The cover of solty rei isn't extremely attracting. Not ugly, but not really all that. So there's this girl with a weird green hairstyle and this old dude who looks pretty grumpy. But, anime is anime so I rented it. Solty is an android who has lost all memory of her past and has more powers than she knows. Roy is a bounty hunter(you like barely see him smile except in flashbacks and stuff.) Roy has a daughter, who was lost in the blast fall, an explosion which separated many families. Roy finds his daughter's shoe, but nothing else. Determined to find his daughter, he decides that she isn't dead and keeps up a search. Suddenly, Solty and Roy collide. After saving his life, Roy takes care of solty, and names her(solty, if you haven't noticed yet.) The story continues this way, and soon the plot thickens. Mecha fans would be disappointed to know, though that this anime isn't all the machinery in most futuristic animes. People like me will be relieved. :) All over all, a swell anime that's for everyone. Not so sci-fi that you can't follow the story, but enough to give you that futuristic feeling.
