Classic Lit Becomes Sci-Fi Action in HUMAN LOST Anime Film Trailer

Reinterpretation based on Osamu Dazai's novel hits theaters during the Fall season of 2019

Yozo Oba, the protagonist of HUMAN LOST, has a harrowing experience.

 

An action-packed new trailer has been published for HUMAN LOST, a science fiction theatrical anime film inspired by Ningen Shikkaku, Osamu Dazai's classic modern literature novel about extreme social alienation.

 


HUMAN LOST will be distributed in North America by Funimation, who describe the story of the film as follows:

 

The year is 2036. A revolution in medical treatment has conquered death by means of internal nanomachines and the “Shell System”, yet only the richest can afford to partake.


Yozo Oba isn’t the richest. Troubled by strange dreams, he flippantly joins his friend’s biker gang on an ill-fated incursion to “The Inside”, where society’s elite lives. This instigates a journey of terrifying discovery that will change Yozo’s life forever.
