In a future governed through the lens of a camera, where people eat synthetic food and pursue an online existence in lieu of physical contact, a group of children begin meeting up in the real world. The aloof Ayumi Kono, the genius hacker Mio Tsuzuki, and the socially awkward Hazuki Makino set out to find the fourth member of their group, Yuko Yabe, who has gone missing. With the help of Myao Rei, an unregistered citizen proficient in martial arts, they are able to find Yuko. However, when their situation takes a sudden turn for the worse, the group stumbles headlong into a dark mystery that challenges everything they know about their world.

I'd like to clear up a few things about Loups=Garous.
First of all, I'm 99% sure Kono Ayumi (the blue-black haired character with short hair and yellow eyes) is a boy, not a girl--because he is always referred to as a guy in the movie. (But Wikipedia, My Anime List, and I think even the back of the DVD case say different, so don't quote me on that--but I'm pretty positive that if they talk about him as a 'him,' then he's a boy)
Secondly, everyone has given harsh reviews and scores about Loups=Garous. When I started watching the movie, I based it on the 6's people read more

What to say what to say.
First I hope that you guys can forgive my English since it's not my native language.

The anime:

As I read the synopsis I was thrilled, it felt like an awesome idea. But as soon as the anime started it started differently as the synopsis said it would. Well I kept watching and got a bit annoyed by the main characters. Hazuki is really insecure and not even funny, sexy or cute. I had no resemblance to her in any way. The other characters were boring, not even interesting. Myao is that typical anime girl who fights and kicks ass but we read more

Saw this on Production I.G.'s work list for 2010 and got curious.
The story revolves around 3 young girls and a teenager caught in a world where monitor's have replaced real contact (not entirely). Hazuki (One of the young girls) has a Communication dissorder. Another young girls calls herself loups=garous,another is a pretty good hacker and the teenager is a fighting machine.
And this is where the anime movie goes wrong
You can't just put ideas together without a coherent story.
The emotions are there,the action too, the characters (undeveloped), the setting , but it just doesn't add up to a whole.
Very dissapointing. The loups=garous itself is an easy read more

This is the worst anime movie I have ever seen.
Character motivations make no sense, the story just meanders and it all falls extremely flat. I finished the movie literally less than 5 minutes ago from writing this and i am struggling to remember what happened.
The whole 'killing children' premise is laughable, with motives being weak, and the original plot point being dropped almost immediately for a boring stereotypical villain, with their dialogue being 100% exposition.
The only moment I enjoyed was towards the end, when the villain was silenced in an unintentionally laughable manner.
Not worth anyone's time, effort or money. It really is a shame. There read more
