An interesting and curious Anime Film
This awesome anime film is about a futuristic dystopia ruled by a technocracy. Children are the world's greatest asset and so they are closely monitored and made sure to grow up to what society sees fit. Physical contact is limited to control disease. Each individual carries a monitor that tracks via GPS and acts as smart phone and a plugin to a social database to interact with others. (Facebook/Google+ anyone?) Quick synopsis: Groups of friends are predetermined and setup by counselors. In this case, our main cast, Makino Hazuki, Kono Ayumi, Mio Tsuzuki, and Yuko Yabe. Yuko goes missing and was thought to have been a murder victim. With this, Mio breaks Makino out of the system with her Magic (hacking abilities) and they meet up with Kono in order to find out what has happened. You'll find out that the story is more about Kono, despite it being in the eyes of Makino.
The art is quite cute. The cast is wonderful. The music and overall experience were enjoyable. It is not too hardcore (has a bit of violence) but appropriate enough for younger viewers.
I'd give the move an 8/10 but I see there's a LOT of unfair votes putting this movie down to 5/10, so I'll gladly vote 10/10 for this one. If you want a "TRUE" and "FAIR" review of this movie, check this link:
