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?

Naturally, the post-apocalyptic genre has been quite popular as of late due to recent mediums pulling their own spin on it. So very few manage to do the genre justice with how vast in scope the genre generally has going for it and most writers don’t have the most competence to write out a competent narrative. Whether or not they are about a nuclear holocaust, zombie invasion, ecological disaster, divine judgement, or pandemic reasons there are so many possibilities for story writers to come up with brilliant ideas for the genre with some great results and ones that are not so great.

Coppelion is what I would describe as a beautiful anime gone straight to hell. I’m not referring to the artwork here because that’s glamorous. What originally started out as an alluring premise with promise turned into an abomination that becomes almost intolerable to watch thanks to its style and overall portrayal of the post-apocalyptic genre. This anime itself is an apocalyptic failure that illustrates just how not to adapt its manga. Not that the manga is any better but Coppelion comes to me as a show that should of never been resurrected.

The series itself is based off of the manga of the same name written read more

Both anime dealt with a section of the environment getting destroyed in some form.
They might seem different but Arata naru Sekai: Mirai-hen and Coppelion both give off a similar vibe with a familiar environment. The main characters in fact hopes to prevent humanity's destruction in a futuristic settings. Additionally, the main characters all possesses special abilities that makes them more unique than others.

There is also the theme of science fiction along with emotional factors.
