Like Eden of the East, [C]--Control: The Money & Soul of Possibility (2011) reflects contemporary social concerns in a way no Western animated series has. Kimimaro Yoga works two jobs in convenience stores while studying at Heisei University of Economics. He doesn't want a glamorous career or fabulous wealth, just a job with a lifelong salary that will enable him to support a wife and child, an increasingly remote goal in Japan--and America. One night, the mysterious pink-haired Masakaki takes Kimimaro to the alternate world of the Financial District. There, people dubbed Entrés (for Entrepreneurs) fight bizarre battles, wagering their futures for a cash stake they can increase endlessly. But if they lose and go bankrupt, their existence in the real world changes: careers, possessions, even family members may vanish. Kimimaro forges a bond with his Asset, a battle assistant who takes the form of a girl with horns. With her help, he scores a series of victories that brings him to the attention of the fabulously wealthy Mr. Mikuni, who's been using his gains in the Financial District to preserve his vision of Japan. The stakes are higher than Kimimaro realizes: the collapse of Lehman Brothers caused an entire Caribbean nation to disappear. Director Kenji Nakamura and his crew create flamboyant visuals for the Financial District that evoke everything from Yellow Submarine to the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. Like Eden of the East, [C]--Control relies on an improbable hero to guide the audience on its journey through a skewed reality. Kimimaro may lack Takizawa's offbeat charm, but voice actor Todd Haberkorn gives him a warm decency that keeps the viewer rooting for him. The combination of imaginative visuals and a compelling subject make [C]--Control one of the best anime series of 2012.

Product Description

Kimimaro works two jobs to put himself through college. He's handed an end to his check-to-check lifestyle when he's offered a large sum of money to compete in a dangerous game. Kimimaro needs the extra cash, but he'll invest his future as collateral in the Financial District. In this alternate dimension, people wage battles using Assets: warriors that protect their masters at all costs. You get wealthier every time you win, but if you lose, it could rob you of your family, your home, or your life. The destructive forces at play between the Financial District and the physical world compel Kimimaro to confront the most powerful man in the game. In this groundbreaking series, find out if the world will survive or disappear from existence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can Money Buy the Future We Want? November 17, 2012
By KevinB
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Japan is saved from financial ruin by The Sovereign Wealth Fund. It's citizens do not live a prosperos life though. The value of the Yen is low and times are hard. Crime, suicide, and despair have taken hold. Kimimaro is a college student that aspires to be a public servant. That's the only thing he can think of to rise above the grip of poverty. One day a strange fellow approaches him with an offer. He says that if Kimmaro joins a group called the Financial District that he can make money. The catch is that in order to make a profit you must battle the other members. He gets a partner named Masho. Masho is a tenacious young girl that helps him fight. Eventually a financial phenomenon called "C" threatens to destroy the Japanese economy once and for all. There are a few members of the Financial District that think they can gain control of "C" and stop the collapse. Hense the series title "C: Control". But the control of C doesn't guarantee the future will be bright. Kimimaro and Masho must fight to rewrite the events that have set a financial crisis in motion.

This series surprised the heck out of me. I didn't expect a whole lot. Sometimes a gamble pays off. This series illustrates that quite profoundly. I was able to get into many of the characters in this series. They are developed pretty well and are very interesting & colorful. This series has excellent animation, voice acting, and a good soundtrack. There is a lot of action, drama, suspense,and a little bit of romance. This series really has a lot going on as well. The plot races along at a very fast speed. It's easy to miss something if you miss even 1 episode. Overall I really enjoyed C: Control. I would like to see a sequel. It would probably be a bit redundant, but it's a great concept. I don't really think this anime will be continued, but it was left open for more if they really wanted to. Anyway, this anime is really good. I highly recommend it to any anime fan. I hope all of you enjoy it as much as I did.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Sound Investment March 4, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
Pros:
+Good voice acting from both the English and Japanese voice cast, particularly Todd Haberkorn's portrayal of an otherwise bland main character
+Intruiging premise
+Awesome animation--meant for HD viewing
+Does not overstay its welcome
+Story keeps you guessing
+Thought provoking
+Great battle sequences
+Fights are never added just to make the show more interesting. There is always a point to them, be it character development or to maintain momentum in the plot.

Cons:
-Flat main character
-"Digitized" filter placed over voices can make the characters from the Financial District initially difficult to understand. However, after one becomes acclimated to the sound it works well.
-Resorts to "technobabble" at times, often oversimplifying economic concepts that could have really added to the show
-Some may find the ending unsatisfying

+/-Could have benefited from a few extra episodes, just because the premise was so interesting that I hungered for more after it finished

3.0 out of 5 stars Control Your Future September 24, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Kimimaro is a collage scholarship student whose dream is to avoid the rampart unemployment, crime, suicide, and despair caused by a banking financial crisis. One day, he meets a strange man who offers him a chance to many money - fast. Thus he is introduced to the "Financial Distract", a place where a person's future takes physical form and is used to fight others to grasp a better future.

This series as a strange and intriguing premise. Betting your current future to find a better one? Losing a game in the Financial Distract means losing your future... really. The visuals were cool, especially the fight scenes.

But in the end, this series was a little disappointing. Kimimaro is the Average Teenage Boy anime character, and even his unusual circumstances don't make him much more interesting. The mechanics behind the Financial District were never really fleshed out or its background sufficiently explained.

C: Control had potential. But despite not being the coolness it could have been, it was still a decent show. At only 11 episodes long, it is a quick watch. It might be worth watching for the cool animation of The Financial Distract alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars C: The Money and Soul of Possibility August 29, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This anime was very fun to watch. This anime involves a college student, Kimimaro Yoga, who gets invited to a new world known as the Financial District, where Entrepreneurs gather and earn large sums of money. These Entrepreneurs fight daily with their assets, which are the manifestation of their entrepreneurs future, to earn money. However, if an Entrepreneur loses even a small sum of money, their future changes significantly. Kimimaro then fights to redeem the future that was used as collateral. I would highly recommend this anime to any anime fan or anyone who enjoys economics.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great interesting Series July 29, 2013
By Chedder
Format:Blu-ray
So i just stumbled upon this by accident and it left me wanting more! It has many interesting concepts on economics and an placing bets on your future for gains today. I just wish there could be a 2nd season because the ending was very open and i wanted slightly more closure.

Totally worth the purchase. A+
