The beginning and ending is never really explained. I will assume that for what ever reason human life could not function in that town and had to go. Animals like the dog and birds could so stayed.

i think the idea of a bomb threat was what the director read more

Mamoru Oshii's Return to Anime!

The director of Ghost in the Shell hasn't directed an anime movie in eight years, but somehow Adult Swim has managed to coax him out of animation retirement for a "micro-series" next year. Let's take a look at his history as a director, and what we can expect from the return of a master.
