first, E-glasses were developed for kids and were just thought of as
another game/fad for kids, but now they have opened a door to another
world and they can't close it ...and the government will do anything
to control it. Shadowy beings from the other side begin to invade
our world, but the dark secret is our worlds have met before and
those dark shadows were people who have separated their bodies ...and
have been trapped on the other side while their real bodies died.
Yasako doesn't realize it, but she is one of the few survivors that
have crossed over and returned.
was very sci-fi anime with heavy theme for a story about children.
Again the fate of the world is in the hands of children. It is about
a virtual world, not quite enough for robots or cyberization but what
if AI could exist and how would it impact our world? Would it want a
body or try to take over our world? What if you can live forever in
a digital version you? It could of easily been a very 'Ghost in
the Shell'-like story but with the without the action and about
1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer can show the
age of the materials used, but the presentation is fine throughout,
but the DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) Japanese 2.0 Stereo lossless mix is
not always as convincing, upgrading the older sound with mixed
results and is weaker overall than the last Blu-ray set of the show,
but it is still better than the English version. Extras include
clean opening and closing animations and trailers.
