Yu Ominae is in high school but he is not just a student. He is a member of Arcam Corporation's elite armed force known as Spriggan. The Arcam Corporation's mission is simple: to make sure that powerful ancient artefacts are protected and sealed off so that no nation can take advantage of them. In a recent excavation though, Arcam discovers a legendary artefact like no other - Noah's Ark. But Noah's Ark turns out to be no ordinary vessel. It has data on the various life forms on Earth and anyone who gains control of the ark can choose to destroy everything and start a new world by creating new life. Arcam must do everything in its power to keep the ark from falling into the wrong hands... and Yu Ominae is just the guy for the job.
Oh my god this was one of the best anime movies I have seen. It was made by the people who made Akira so you know that this is a good movie. I think this was better than Ghost in the Shell and almost as good as Akira. It has an awesome storyline and great action scenes. I think it is at the low end of mature audiences. I think it is appropriate for most teens but that is up to the parent. Overall this movie was great.
