13 July 2017 3:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

An uncompromising examination of the human condition against the backdrop of ultra-violence, Genocidal Organ is a thought-provoking thrill ride from one of Japan’s greatest sci-fi minds. A definite staple for science fiction and anime fans alike.

When Bosnia’s capital fell victim to a nuclear attack, the western world transformed into a series of surveillance states in the name of counterterrorism. Developing nations however, have become embroiled in an alarming number of genocidal civil wars, with one person curiously at the centre: the American John Paul (Takahiro Sakurai). Clavis Shephard (Yuichi Nakamura), a U.S. intelligence officer, leads the charge in an expedition to bring down the “King of Genocides” across a world where hell isn’t what you see or do, but what you can never forget.

‘Blame!’ Review: Netflix’s Dystopian Anime Envisions a Future in Which Man Fought the Machine — and Lost

19 May 2017 11:26 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Nobody knows when the world became this way,” intones young Suzu (Sora Amamiya) moments into “Blame!,” and though that world is familiar, it’s not without its surprises. Hiroyuki Seshita’s adaptation of the 10-volume manga by Tsutomu Nihei envisions a society in which man contended with machine and lost — now, untold years later, the few humans left within the unfathomably large Megastructure are on the brink of extinction.

This being a post-apocalyptic cyber-wasteland, our heroes are of course a band of survivors attempting to eke out an existence in the futuristic dystopia their once-thriving planet has become. They’re stymied in their efforts by Builders, Exterminators and other mechanical beasts roaming the Megastructure: some large, some small, all deadly. Resources are scarce, outfits are sleek and straits are dire.

Seshita drops us right into the action, which is likely to please diehards and confuse the uninitiated. Once you’re »
