Synopsis: In a futuristic Japan, the Sibyl System is charged with keeping the peace. Using extensive surveillance and biological monitoring to gauge the likelihood that individuals will commit a crime, the police are able to use weapons called Dominators to remove potential criminals from the population before they become a problem. Confident with the success of the System within their own borders, the Japanese government has begun to export the technology to other countries, planning to ultimately spread the System across the globe.
When the state of SEAUn brings the Sibyl System in to test its effectiveness, it becomes a haven of peace and safety for a time. Eventually, terrorists from SEAUn begin appearing in Japan, somehow slipping through the Systems security and attacking from within. Desperate for answers, Inspector Akane Tsunemori is sent overseas to bring the terrorists to justice. But when her investigation forces her into a standoff with an old ally, will she be able to pull the trigger?

Andrew Osmond interviews the co-director of Harmony.
Michael Arias should need little introduction to readers of this blog. He’s most famous as the American director of the epic anime film Tekkonkinkreet, whose production was the subject of an in-depth interview by Jasper Sharp. Arias is also the developer of the Toon Shaders software, as deployed on the Ghibli blockbusters Princess Mononoke and Spirited Away – you can read his comments on Toon Shaders here.
But when Arias came to London this year to attend the MCM London Comic Con and the “Anime Weekend” at the BFI Southbank, we couldn’t resist interviewing him again. Below, we chat about Arias’ career, his thoughts on the anime industry, and his latest anime film – Harmony, based on a novel by the late Satoshi Ito, better known as Project Itoh. Continue Reading

As a 12-year-old, I remember wandering the High Street in Mosley (Birmingham) and entering a martial arts shop. There wasn’t much I could afford, but I did buy a 50p pamphlet with a scratchy drawing of the human body, and an English translation on the “ancient Chinese martial art” of Dim Mak (‘Poison Touch’ ). Like some cliché from Stephen Chow’s Kung Fu Hustle I had stumbled across a form of 'Five-Point Palm Exploding Heart Technique' that Pai Mei would recognise.
Of course, it was no such thing. It was a bad copy of an acupuncture chart with a dubious hand technique for striking at meridians. What this experience did teach me was a healthy scepticism for martial arts – although how to kill a man would have been nicer – that I kept in the back of my mind throughout my youthful years of judo, karate, atemi jutsu, and aikido: take nothing on face value.
Jonathan Clements’s Brief History of Martial Arts, also takes nothing on face value. Within the course of this book he grips the martial arts face, opens the mouth wide and takes a good long look at its history. Continue Reading
