Urban combat in the city of dreams
After the devastation of World War III, the scattered governments of the world construct the perfect city administered by perfect Biodroids—artifically created half-human half-robots. Life in Olympus is carefully controlled and monitored—and some of its human population have had enough. A dedicated band of terrorists plot to destroy Gaia, the central computer, and restore freedom to mankind. After a daring raid of a high security facility, they have the weapons and information they need to complete their mission—including the key to the end of Gaia. Will they be stopped before they ruin the dream of paradise?
Appleseed takes us into the explosive world of the Extra Special Weapons And Tactics squad of the Olympus police force, as they battle against those who would destroy their utopia. Join two of the finest (and most reckless) officers on the force in this high-tech animated Lethal Weapon. Based on the internationally successful comic series by Masamune Shirow, Appleseed is a high-octane, action-packed race against time as the future of a civilization hangs in the balance.
