The war on terror exploded, literally, the day Sarajevo was destroyed by a homemade nuclear device. The leading democracies transformed into total surveillance states, and the developing world has drowned under a wave of genocides. The mysterious American John Paul seems to be behind the collapse of the world system, and it's up to intelligence agent Clavis Shepherd to track John Paul across the wreckage of civilizations and to find the true heart of darkness—a genocidal organ.

Gyakusatsu Kikan was originally in production by studio Manglobe and was intended to be released on November 13, 2015. However the studio filed for bankruptcy on September 29, 2015 and production was handed over to Geno Studio. The film was reported to have been 60% complete by Manglobe before their production ended, however producer Kouji Yamamoto stated it had really been 20% complete.

*I'm not basing this review on the source material for this story, the change in the production studio, or anything other than the story standing alone on it's own*

Overall this movie is very enjoyable, with great fluid animation, appealing character design, and an overall compelling story.

The story is this movie's strongest and weakest point. The concept is great and extremely thought provoking, and it often makes allusions to other works and ideas which I loved. The world this movie is set in is very well built and established. The characters are often traveling and moving around and there are some complex political conflicts between ...

Mixed Feelings
Just personal scratch.
Advised, possible spoilers.
Opinion & Informal

Art: 7/10. Quite detailed. Realistic style. Attention to small details. Anatomy was actually very very well done. The human figures were spot on and very life-like.

Animation: 8/10 Fluid. Looked a little awkward during some scenes. Everything else was nice to look at. The human movements were believable for a realistic-styled art style. The gun-play and action scenes were few but animated very well. The small mannerisms in both the environment and characters as well as their body languages were noticeable and much appreciated. The action was exciting for the most part but wasn't really enough to warrant the ...

What a piece of crap. Even Project Itoh's critically acclaimed novel wasn't perfect, but at least it delivered a semirealistic futuristic world with all its pros and cons of surveillance, nanomechanical warfare, etc. But this adaption is a failure in every aspect - whether or not you look at the trouble it went through during its production.

Genocidal Organ fails to deliver a coherent storyline (and makes all the wrong choices through the way). It fails to replicate the detailed world building, Itoh is so well known for (compare with Harmony i.e.). It just scratches on the surface of the complex thoughts, this topic offers. The ...

Evolution of the noitaminA Programming Block

Evolution of the noitaminA Programming Block

Anime is a form of entertainment usually marketed towards an otaku fanbase, making it difficult for people unfamiliar with that culture to step in. The noitaminA programming block was created to serve as a gateway to that audience. But how well have they kept their promise throughout the years?
