In the distant technological future, civilization has reached its ultimate Net-based form. An “infection” in the past caused the automated systems to spiral out of order, resulting in a multi-leveled city structure that replicates itself infinitely in all directions. Now humanity has lost access to the city’s controls, and is hunted down and purged by the defense system known as the Safeguard. In a tiny corner of the city, a little enclave known as the Electro-Fishers is facing eventual extinction, trapped between the threat of the Safeguard and dwindling food supplies. A girl named Zuru goes on a journey to find food for her village, only to inadvertently cause doom when an observation tower senses her and summons a Safeguard pack to eliminate the threat. With her companions dead and all escape routes blocked, the only thing that can save her now is the sudden arrival of Killy the Wanderer, on his quest for the Net Terminal Genes, the key to restoring order to the world.

20 years ago Blame! manga was released it was one of the most mesmerizing Sci-Fi manga I’ve came across. I didn’t believe it when they announced that a movie adaption was getting released. I was over joyed and I couldn’t wait for it’s release. I’ve watched the movie as soon as it was released and boy was it satisfying.

First of all the cast Mamoru Miyano,  Takahiro Sakurai, Kana Hanazawa they are japan’s best voice actors and they fit the roles perfectly. The music was exactly how I imagined it would be reading the manga.

The anime was CGI so I know that a lot of people would be discouraged to watch it. In all honesty though the CGI brought the true essence of the manga. Its better than any other CGI I’ve came across and its perfect for Sci-Fi.

It was nice to see the story from a different character’s prospective. It brought out something unique to the movie. I highly recommend it to Cyberpunk fans.

Overall Rate: 9/10
