Production I.G released a new trailer for Kenji Kamiyama’s (GitS: Stand Alone Complex, Eden of the East) CG Anime 009: Re-Cyborg about three weeks before the theatrical opening in Japan.

Synopsis:

The story begins in 2013 when skycrapers in London, Moscow, Berlin, and New York are destroyed by simultaneous bombings. The indiscriminate terrorism by an unknown group with unknown motives sets off widespread panic throughout the world.

There was once a group of nine cyborg fighters who rescued humanity from threats, but they had disbanded to their home countries. Now the man who created them, Dr. Gilmore, has summoned and assembled them back together again. However, the 00 Number Cyborgs’ former leader, a Japanese man named Joe Shimamura, is now living alone in Tokyo’s Roppongi with his past memories erased.

Present-day Thailand is rife with corruption. Tul, a straight-laced cop, is blackmailed by a powerful politician and framed from a crime he did not commit.

Synopsis:

Settle into your chair and be transported to a place both familiar and alien; where a giant shopgirl can barely fit in her store, there’s a weird green pod in every bedroom, and terrifying wood nymphs provide a heartbroken woman with the anatomically correct fruit everyone seems to covet. In the end we are left, like Alice, with the Red King’s conundrum: are we dreaming them or are they dreaming us?
