Overview
009-1 (ゼロゼロナイン・ワン, Zero Zero Nine-One?) is a spy-fi anime series based on a manga series by famous manga artist Shotaro Ishinomori. It was first broadcast on TBS TV in Japan in October 2006. The original manga was named 009ノ1 ("Zero Zero Ku-no-ichi"; a pun on kunoichi and a reference to the main character's occupation as a spy) and was serialized in Weekly Manga Action from 1967 to 1970, then returned briefly in 1974. It concerns Miléne Hoffman (ミレーヌ・ホフマン Mirēnu Hofuman; "Mylene" in the English translation), a female cyborg with machine gun breasts who works as a secret agent. Prior to the anime, it had been adapted into a live-action drama for Fuji TV in 1969 entitled "Flower Action 009ノ1".

The 2006 anime has been licensed for a North American release by A.D. Vision. The first volume was released on June 19, 2007, although it was originally scheduled for release in March 2007.

Although it was also created by Ishinomori, and features similar themes, this seinen manga, despite the "00" name and the cybernetized protagonists, has no relation to his previous work Cyborg 009, a shōnen manga (although there may be some slight references to his previous work, they are otherwise two different and separate projects).
