FUNimation At The Movies – 009 Re:Cyborg

It’s that time again, FUNimation at the Movies!

This month, we have a high-action, high-drama reboot of a classic, 009 Re:Cyborg! The crew reunites once again to root out terrorism that troubles the world!

 

 

Synopsis:

From Kenji Kamiyama, the visionary director behind Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, comes a gripping, visually captivating sci-fi thriller.

 

Many years ago, nine humans were captured and transformed into cyborgs for the purposes of becoming agents of evil. Instead, they rebelled; becoming champions of justice anytime the earth was in need.

 

Now, in a post-9/11 world, the meaning of “justice” has become clouded. The cyborgs, untouched by time, and some without memory of their status as heroes, have since taken up lives as ordinary civilians. But when a mysterious force known only as “His Voice” compels people across the world to commit unspeakable acts of violence, even Cyborg 009, Joe Shimamura, falls victim to the irresistible faceless power.

 

In an era when cyber-terrorism is rapidly advancing, how can the cyborgs combat an enemy that has no face and seemingly no motive?

Misora Whitale has all the enthusiasm to be a leader, but she’s failed 100 consecutive tests. Rico Flamel is a genius sniper, but she’s a little self-absorbed, and Lecty Eisenach is a candidate with all the ambition, but zero confidence.

 

It’s up to Kanata Age to train the troubled trio to become accomplished Sky Wizards.
