I was blown away by the animation.

Judge Joel Pearce, dvdverdict.com

The art direction is top notch.



Legendary cult-favorite Yoshitoshi ABe (Serial Experiments Lain, Haibane Renmei) tempts us to witness every gritty detail of man’s downward spiral in a future overrun by violence, greed, and depravity. In pursuit of perfection, humans develop a technology to replace limbs with robotic parts. However, this innovation injects corruption into the underground city of Lux.

After Ichise loses an arm and a leg to please a vengeful gang member, a beautiful but perverse doctor equips him with experimental prosthetics against his will. Only a prophetic young girl’s vision of his destiny fuels his will to survive. When an army of men transformed into terrifying machines invades the city, Ichise rages against humanity’s demise— but can his actions actually be the catalyst?
