FTW: 009 Re:Cyborg on DVD
WE’VE got three copies of the anime film, 009 Re:Cyborg on DVD to give away to Meld readers! Jonathan Lian has more on the film and details on how you can score a copy!
In a futuristic world where concepts of justice and peace aren’t the same as they were before, nine cyborgs awaken to do battle against a faceless enemy.
Based on a classic Japanese manga and anime series Cyborg 009, the new and darker re-imagining of the series 009 Re:Cyborg brings back the same characters and exposes them to a different world where our nine heroes reactivate and reassemble to combat a global terrorist threat set to destabilise and bring down modern society.
Renowned for his work in sci-fi anime, director Kenji Kamiyama takes a different approach to the once popular 1960s manga series. Offering plenty of action and emotional conflict between its characters, 009 Re:Cyborg is a surprisingly thoughtful animated blockbuster with a theological angle.
If you’re a fan of director Kamiyama’s previous works like the existential sci-fi anime series Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and politically-minded thriller Eden of the East, then his latest re-telling of the Cyborg 009 franchise might make for a perfect addition to your collection.
