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.

TLDR: This is one to skip. It's both mindless and devoid of entertaining action - unsatisfying in every regard.

I was lucky enough to get in to the U.S. premiere at Anime Expo, but my expectations weren't nearly low enough for this. Miyano Mamoru tends to be attached to good projects, but this one felt like a mistake.

The movie makes use of the title of a very famous piece of Japanese literature by Osamu Dazai, "No Longer Human." Unfortunately, any relation this movie has to that book is all surface-level. The character names are mostly used (Youzou, Horiki, Takeichi, Hiiragi), but their personalities and motivations ...

Despite the poor reviews if you have read the 1948 novel you realise that this is much more than a CGI anime film witha convoluted story line that makes little or no sense. It is in fact a vivid reimagining of a japanese classic, putting the plot and character in to a futuristic world. Initially I came in blind before erading the book ,And even then i could comprehend the plot. However my full amazement at this film came once i started reading the novel. Once I rewatched it I began to feel nostalgia, remembering the book and marvelling at the epic that was Human ...

I seen the UK Premiere of this movie at Scotland Loves Anime, and it was also the first time I've seen an anime movie on the big screen and also the first time I've willingly watched any anime in the original Japanese with English subtitles.

This movie was very enjoyable, I'm not a professional reviewer by any means and it's not something I do very often but I do feel the need to recommend this movie.

The story is loosely (and I mean very loosely) based on the autobiographical novel "No Longer Human" by Osamu Dazai. The biggest change being that the movie takes place in a ...
