Synopsis


In 2016, a meltdown of a nuclear power plant creates a big catastrophe in Tokyo. 20 years later, the city has become a ghost town due to the high levels of radiation. From that area a distress signal is received. The Self Defense forces dispatch three girls from the special unit Coppelion to search for survivors. But why aren't they wearing any protection against radiation?

Impressions

The artwork reminds me of "K" in a way although I can't say I'm surprised given the production studios. There are about 20+ chapters translated so far from the manga. As a setting in the future, there's science fiction themes to be expected. I'm actually pretty excited to check this one out because of the themes and dystopia-like setting.

Oh and this was an anime that got restarted so I wonder if there's any improvements from the original project.

Pretty sure the PV I watched said it was from Gohands, which is the same studio as K. So, I guess it would make sense that the artwork looks similar.

Looks a little darker and a little more mature, so I'm pretty excited to check this out.

I'm wondering if they're aiming to make it a culturally significant anime by exploring the nature of the nuclear meltdown or not... Could make it a kind of controversial show if that's the case.

But anyway, the hype train has rolled out for this one for me. There's no way it won't be good after seeing that preview.

If they stick to the manga, it will.

They did shelve it for a while after Fukushima, which tells me it's not just a setting thing; probably going to be some thematic stuff explored.

you jumped the gun on me by 6hours, Stark! gah! I made a duplicate just now and reported myself to the mods. lol... well, I'm anxious! only a few hours away till the premier.

anyways!

Episode One(1)
pretty damn awesome! just what I was hoping to see! I'll be glued to this one all through out the Fall. I enjoy how the animation gives a really old feel to everything. especially the shots taken from the helicopter, it was like watching old war footage. the girl w/the glasses...think she died? they didn't show a body. so, I think not. plus, how you gonna kill one of the poster characters off in the first episode? we'll see! I seriously enjoy this one.
