Product description

FREEDOM BD BOX SET (BLU-RAY)

Amazon.com

The sci-fi OVA Freedom (2006) takes place in the 23rd century. Decades earlier, a space station crashed, initiating a series of ecological catastrophes that left the Earth largely uninhabitable: humanity survives in the rigidly controlled lunar megalopolis of Eden. Frustrated by this restricted environment, 15-year-old misfit Takeru and his friends Kazuma and Bismark run afoul of the authorities when they try to break into the illicit equivalent of street racing. While performing his sentence of "volunteer work" on the lunar surface, Takeru discovers a photograph of a girl. Smitten, he tries to discover her identity. Alan, an eccentric ex-scientist, reveals the picture was taken on Earth. But Takeru has been taught that the Earth was reduced to barren rubble: Humans exist only in Eden. The ruling council pursues Takeru and his friends as they search for the truth. Determined to find the girl in the photo, the teen-agers take the only way out of Eden: a century-old emergency rocket. Takeru and the fussy mechanial genius Bismarck escape just ahead of the police, vowing to return to get Kazuma. When the two exiles reach the Earth, they discover the planet is largely desolate, but plants, animals, and small colonies of humans still exist. Takeru meets Ao, the mystery girl, and resolves to break down the barriers that separate Earth and the Moon. At various times, all of Takeru's friends comment, "When I hang out with you, there's never a dull moment." Although some sequences reflect the influence of Akira a little too obviously, Freedom is an entertaining blend of 3D computer graphics and 2D drawn animation. The Blu-Ray set is a vast improvement over the HD release that only included one episode per disc and no English track. (Rated 13 and older: minor violence and risqué humor) --Charles Solomon
