    Synopsis


    Appleseed
    Masamune Shirow's celebrated manga of the fusion of humans and technology in a world devastated by war has been given a new and visually impressive adaptation in this anime drama. In the year 2131 A.D., Deunen Knute (voice of Ai Kobayashi) is a female warrior for hire who, after encountering her former lover Briareos (voice of Jurota Kosugi), discovers he's not the man he once was -- he's now part human and part robot. As Deunen and Briareos venture into the high-tech city of Olympus, they meet Hitomi (voice of Yuki Matsuoka), who is a member of a genetically engineered race of strong and intelligent beings who have taken over rule of the city. They have not done so without resistance, and Deunen and Briareos join forces with Hitomi and her cohorts when rebels launch an attack on the city. But while she defends Olympus, Deunen begins to suspect she has a greater alliance to those who wish to defeat Olympus than those who defend it. Appleseed (aka Appurushido) was previously filmed in 1988; this version incorporates new digital animation technology which combines the look of rounded, three-dimensional images with the visual style of the traditional pen-and-ink process. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      The pleasure to watch

      A new remake of the old school classic. A lot of remakes suffer compared to the originals but not this one. Loved every moment of it. Engaging plot and absolutely amazing fighting scenes. For all the appreciators of a good visual sci-fi action anime. It can also be found in a "Steelbox" edition

      one more reason I love anime

      This has been one of my favorites for years now. The Japanese story line is not as childish as U.S. amine, more willing to put a harshness into the plot. Older children or young adults and adults may enjoy the post war type story of new beginnings with the pre war problems still there.

      I read the original Appleseed Manga back in the late 1980's-early 90's and enjoyed it. This new movie is a good reboot of that theme. The CGI could be better but the story is good.

      I love this movie, it's in great quality. I love the plot and great graphics. I also found number 2, it's just as good.

      Not as thought provoking as GITS but a very solid movie in its own right. Maybe better action sequences. Hope that someday we get to see a live action version.

      This movie is such an awesome action movie that anyone who loves anime should see! The CGI and cell-shading infusion was seamless and awesome to watch.

      A nice re-release of a classic. Appleseed is heavy on story and has a moderate amount of action. Recommended.
