In the year 2041, mankind created their first space colony on the moon. But after a freak cataclysm devastated human civilisation on Earth, the republic of the moon built a domed megalopolis known as Eden. Now in the year 2267, a boy called Takeru spends his time engaging in hover-craft races against rival street gangs, unaware that he is about to embark in the journey of unearthing Eden's origin.

You have probably already seen or, at least, heard about Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira. The movie was beautifully drawn, with complex characters and admired for its illustrations of technology. So, when Bandai Entertainment announced that Otomo was working on a new anime series, his fans were naturally excited.
Disappointment came in when I learned that Otomo was only designing the characters and the technological look of the series rather than writing the stories. However, after watching this OVA series with 7 episodes, I can now say I was impressed, although it could have been so much better plot-wise.

this series has that akira animation look to it which drew me into watching this. I saw the first episode which then i was hooked from the street racing punks of the future. The story line was a little rushed with only being a few episodes. The main character driven by love that turn everything into an epic adventure and changing the world/moon. I really enjoyed FREEDOM and I'm sure everyone else will. Made my heart get all warm and fuzzy at the end. It is a good watch.

I was drawn in at the first episode. Asking so many questions in my mind about what its about, where is it based, ect.. After finally completing it i can say this anime is making my top 5 favorites list. The story was outstanding, tons of suspense, i really enjoyed the whole post apocolyptic story of earth and how they made a moon base called eden for humans to live on. The art was amazing, what i would expect from the creator of Akira, everything was perfectly drawn and the technologic theme was amazing! This is def a must watch anime you will be at read more

I find this anime really great and really complex for just 7 episodes. It gives you an idea of what humans would be like if earth was inhabitable or portrayed as inhabitable. Gives you an idea on what we could be on the moon if we want to colonize there.
