Half a century after a devastating war that brought Japan on the brink of destruction, a centralized network named Sound Health Everlasting Long Life (SHELL) has become the basis of the new society. Thanks to cutting-edge research on nanomachines and medical treatment, people are guaranteed a life free of diseases, but they are expected to work 19 hours a day in return. Moreover, when someone disconnects from the SHELL system, an extremely rare phenomenon called "Human Lost" takes place, transforming humans into monsters—"Lost"—that need to be destroyed, lest society will collapse for good.

However, in this society where the fear of pain and death is absent, antisocial behavior is on the rise. Factory worker Takeichi plans to besiege the Ministry of Interior to protest against his inhumane living conditions and manages to convince his friend, the unknown painter Youzou Ooba, to join his cause. But when their suicide operation inevitably fails, Takeichi is left with a body beyond repair and mutates into a Lost, with Youzou immediately following suit.

In the ensuing fight, a member of the dispatch team, Yoshiko Hiiragi, uses her ability to detect the Lost and discovers that Youzou has the unique capacity to return to human form. As the third person who survived after becoming a Lost unit, Youzou soon joins Yoshiko in investigating the recent outburst of Human Lost phenomena that threaten the last chances civilization has to be reborn.

First of all if you don't want to watch the movie, you should listen to the theme song, as it encapsulates everything wrong with it and is the funniest thing ever.
Now to the review, if you like me read the original novel I must say this is a MUST WATCH, and the reason why is as follows.
First of all, this is the most senseless, distasteful and even as a reimagination of a classic it doesn't work, since it seems the writer doen't understand the character of Yozo at all, and turns him into a suicidal hero, and honestly I was going to say more about ...

Mixed Feelings
I don't understand why this show is rated under a 6.00 average. Sure, the show has problems, and I *did* rate this a 5/10, but it's definitely not a *bad* movie in any sense of the word. At its worst, the show felt a bit cliche and predictable, but at its best, it does pose some fairly interesting questions (none of which however I would say it answered to a good extent). However, at its core, this movie is fairly underrated, especially for a show with a 5.85 average.

I hope it's not a pattern to find 3D anime movies, adapted from great material, turned into the most typical, middle of the road, waste of time.

For beginners, this is the pinnacle of strange adaptations. From a period story on the old times of Japan, to a Sci-fi overhaul, using the same characters, themes, in a whole new context. I was more than intrigued; fascinated even. To put it shortly, this isn't a good adaptation, or a good movie, really. It's an amalgamation of concepts, plot points, all used from the book it comes from, but without the nuance they were packed with. At ...
