the near future, all children wear E-glasses with virtual pets in
real time. However in the shadows are the 'illegals', mysterious
virtual creatures that threaten to steal/infect their virtual pets.
What was thought to be a child's toy turns out to be another world on
top of the real, but what if that world now want our world?
Coil: Collection One
(2007), Yoko has just moved into Daikoku city, there she meets and
find the Coil Detective Agency while children using their virtual
glasses search for virtual oddities or 'illegals', but what are
'illegals'? Illegals are older programs that get erased and
overwritten in the virtual world. With each new version/upgrades
what if suddenly these virtual 'pets/programs' become sentient? Yoko
gets learns there is a hidden dark secret to the virtual world.
was an interesting idea of how everyone can be connected through
virtual glasses and how they can over lap in real life.
Society/children spends time, money and resources to various things
to 'upgrade' up load patches to their 'virtual' world. While the
idea is cool and falls into possible realistic future, it is
unrealistic with how much it would take to have a virtual world on
top of a real world which everyone can see in real time, each home
would require dozens of supercomputers to process and interact with
all users in the area much less track things and objects in the world
in real time.
1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer can show the
age of the materials used, but the presentation is fine throughout,
DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) Japanese 2.0 Stereo lossless mix is not
always as convincing, upgrading the older sound with mixed results
and better than the English version. Extras
include clean opening and closing animation and trailers.
