Synopsis:
A cyber battle sci-fi. In 2022, the technology of quantum computing has greatly advanced and many people have transfered their mind into the cyber space. Remu's sister-in-law, Shiki, skipped grades and entered a high school in the academic city "Okinotori-island Mega Float City (OMFC)" when she was 14. One day, Shiki confessed to her brother via Skype that she was talking to him directly from the cyber space and her real body had been kept in a water tank filled with a culture medium. It's called "Body pool" and Shiki connected to the network by nanomachines implanted in her brain. Remu was surprised but he accepted her decision until an accident called "Early Rupture" happened. The network server got overloaded and users' minds were lost in cyber space leaving soulless living bodies in the Body Pools. In order to bring Shiki's mind back, Remu visits her apartment in OMFC and there meets Shiki escaped from the hospital. But the girl tells him that she is not Shiki and she happens to haven taken over Shiki's body. When Remu tries to figure out the situation, a violent attack strikes the apartment.

I always thought this would be one of the four Young Animator Training Project titles that received money for the Japanese agency for Cultural Affairs in 2012. Apparently this is not the case anymore as it lists "TV Kazoku Channel Jacker" instead. Does anyone have informatrion regarding that?
Arve Rezzle replaced Pierrot's KCJ.

And here's the PVs of the 4 of them:

Well at first I hadn't planned on watching this but... The character Sakayui... She's my type over 9000% in terms of character design... So... Count me in..? Unless she's got a shit personality, then she's definitely a potential waifu of mine... Probably the only character I can say that about based on design alone. Except maybe Hitagi... Just maybe

Weird I had already seen this in one anime poster. Did some fake got it right?
Anyway, sci-fi, supercomputers, virtual worlds, sounds kinda dark... sounds like win to me. Will PTW this.

Lets hope its worked by good studio like Horizon, F/Z, Accel World and SAO again.
Not JC, DEEN, ZEXCS, XEBEC and other shite studios.


Accel World is not super great. I think Sword Art Online is better of the two works.


And you the nail right on the head, Zexcs got it. xD
