The original Silent Möbius manga ran from 1989 – 1999 in Fujimi Shobo’s Comic Dragon shōnen manga magazine. The series follows an elite team of police women who protect Tokyo from invasion by extra-dimensional beings known as the Lucifer Hawk. An English language version of Silent Möbius is available from Udon Entertainment.
Silent Möbius was also adapted into a pair of theatrical anime films in 1991 and 1992 and an anime TV series in 1999. The movies and the TV series were previously released on home video in North America by Bandai Entertainment, but these releases are now out-of-print.
