A Parent's Guide to Anime
Rated: M
Recommended for Mature Audiences

Review by Jay Dee Archer

One day, everyone woke up with no memory, not even a memory of language. In the United States, one man who had been taught how to live, speak and take care of himself is searching for the reason for this amnesia. He meets a woman in San Francisco and they start their journey together. This movie is a pretty good "what if" scenario that shows what society would be like if we were to start all over again. The animation is theatrical quality, on par for a 1993 movie. Both subtitled and dubbed versions have been seen (as this was watched on DVD) and the dub is acceptable, although not as good as the original. Overall, it is a pretty good and intriguing movie.

Parent's Guide Rating:

red (recommended for mature audiences)

Inventory: violence including death, one scene in the middle of nudity, and a non-explicit sex scene at the end of the movie. There is some profanity.

Discussion: This movie involves a sex scene which seems sort of out of place near the end of the movie. It's non-explicit, so no actual sex is shown, but there is full nudity of both sexes. This is definitely not for children. The violence in the movie is mainly the result of very savage people with no memories. They act like pack animals (such as wolves) and are very violent when threatened. And since they're like wild animals, there's no modesty, so one girl strips down to her panties (of course, we've seen this in shows like Ranma).
