The film is set in the distant future in a city called Cahmpon. A scientist creates a synthetic life-form called Noiseman, which erases music from the airwaves by turning it into crystals. A group of Biker street kids rebels against this tyranny.

Noiseman`s progressive, or weird if you will, concept is accessible because of its short length and simple, self contained story. Normally,something with a visual audio idiosyncracy like this is difficult to approach, and is therefore confined to its own niche following. Sadly, Noiseman doesn`t have much more than a small niche, but given the chance, most viewers will probably find that there is some mass-market appeal.

I believe a majority of people who watch Noiseman will enjoy it, but I doubt it will make too many avid fans. The plot is a little too complex for the alloted time. It doesn`t flow quite as effortlessly read more

Onkyo Seimeitai Noiseman is a "Short Movie" of around 15 minutes.

It was produced by Studio 4°C an inventive and creative studio that I must say is composed of a capable and interesting staff.

Plot: In short it is about Noiseman a synthetic life-form that erased music and sounds from the airwaves

I remember making note of this one after seeing it on some recommendation image. You know, those ones that have a bunch of anime posters on a black background with the names written under each one and then the title is on the top or bottom and says something like "So You Think All Anime Are the Same? Check These Out:". I don't, but I like avoiding the same things in general. Well that aside, the badass poster with its hot pink contrast to the flat grey over an edgy dystopian punk with small patterned dots and a fuzzy logo representing static feedback on top read more
