Conan was the only child born on Remnant Island, a place settled by a group of refugees while they fled a terrifying wave of magnetic bombs that wiped out most of humanity. After 20 years, most of the castaways have died, save for Conan and the wise old man that raised him.

Believing Remnant Island to be the last inhabited place on Earth, Conan is shocked when he discovers a young girl named Lana washed up on the beach one day. Though he is thrilled to learn that humanity has survived, Lana tells him the nation of Industria wants her as a hostage to force her grandfather, Dr. Lao, to power their machinery. Their conversation is cut short when Industria's top pilot, Monsley, suddenly appears and seizes Lana. Determined to save her, Conan immediately sets off from Remnant Island and begins a journey that will ultimately determine the fate of the world.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Inspired by the novel "The Incredible Tide" by Alexander Key, released in 1970.

I will not spoil anything in this review I want you to be able to enjoy it free of spoilers like I did.

This is a masterpiece. Its timeless. It's very uncommon to find a show that is enjoyable for all ages who watch it. Those of you who have seen studio ghibli films.

So his name was Conan.

I remember this anime from my childhood. Honestly back then I didn't even know it was an anime.
I come from a different country and the show was dubbed in my language I had the same name as the female lead. I love everything about this anime, from the way it envisioned the future to the character's development, friendships, and backgrounds. Honesty you can't find an anime anything like it.
