A.D. 2115—the island nation once called Japan is now known as the "17th Far East Imperial City Management District."

The citizens were promised a life of peace in exchange for some of the comfort they were used to having. People believed their lives would never change and tomorrow will be the same as today. No one suspected the impending doom which their society was about to face.

"Degradation"—a rare disease which led to the total disintegration of the human body to a mere pile of sand was slowly but surely spreading throughout the world.

Tohru Kazasumi, an ordinary student becomes embroiled in a multi universal battle between his world and the parallel world of "Frontier S (Stratos)." This meant that Tohru must fight himself from an alternate world.

Their futures collide as their paths cross.

Will both worlds ever find peace?

( Am I the only person wo knows this was kind of a plot point in the short lived TV "Fringe"? )Okay it's got cool characters that are designed well and a brave and mysterious world to explore and explain. It even provides a some what reasonable explanation as why we're having children fight this war. It's got action and a cool sci fi setting and likeable diverse characters. The emotional toll is not hndled off screen or glossed over either. The ...

(This has been adapted from blog/reddit thread. Spoilers ahead!)

A well-known philosophical question takes the following form. Imagine a teleporter that copies your body completely: atoms, thoughts, brain neurons, and so on. The teleporter works by replicating you entirely, materializing a new copy where you want to go, and then the first body – the one used to make the copy – is destroyed. Again, the new copy is perfect, and simply believes the teleportation was successful. Now, suppose the original body was never destroyed. Two of you exist simultaneously, so the question becomes: who is the real you? The original or the new? Both have ...
