The Facts are These:
On November 22, 2010, ten missles strike Japan, however this resulted in no casualties, this was later refered to as Careless Monday. Later, Saki Moromi is visiting Washington D.C. where she meets a naked man, who introduces himself as Akira Takizawa. He has forgotten who he is and why he is there, also why does he have a phone that has 8,200,000,000 yen (around $86,000,000) in digital cash.
This is an interesting show that is constantly makes you ask, who is behind this event and why are they doing this. It makes you think and that makes this an interesting series. The characters are well developed. The show looks okay, but there are better looking show. This show though is incomplete, you don’t get the full story unless you watch the two movies that take place after the series.
Behind the Scenes:
This is an original series created, directed and written by Kenji Kamiyama. With his other works include 009 Re:Cyborg and Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. The series was produced by Production I.G., and is licensed in North America by Funimation, in Australia by Madman Entertainment and in the United Kingdom by Manga Entertainment.
The opening for this series is “Falling Down” by Oasis. I was surprised to hear an English opening when I originally watched this show. I was not expecting to hear Oasis perform the opening. Here it is for you to enjoy…
A Brief View of the World:
The series takes place in modern day Japan, there is not much different to this Japan than our own. The exception to this being the Mr. Outside, someone who controls the flow of money to the point of giving several people millions of dollars.
This series is great and has amazing story, characters and themes. This show makes you think and wonder why these events are happening and who is controlling them. It is a great show, but it is incomplete without the additional movies and that takes away from the series.
This show is definitely rewatchable with 11 episodes of content, but realize that you will have to watch the two additional movies that come after the series to get the complete series.
Zankyou no Terror – A great looking and sounding psychological thriller.
Death Note – For a great psychological series with an interesting thought process.
I do not own any of the above used pictures and/or video they belong to their original creators, Production I.G. and Kenji Kamiyama.
