I got an email about this video, Appleseed Ex Machina, which is a sci-fi/anime film being released to video by Warner Bros. It looks like I will have a copy to give away in a couple of weeks, so take a look and see if you might be interested. I don't personally know much about anime, but I thought this looked pretty amazing. In the year 2133, a war killed off half the population of Earth, plunging the world into chaos and despair. In OLYMPUS, a utopian city-state and the last true bastion of culture and civilization, the ESWAT police force holds the peace. The two star members of this Special Ops team are Deunan Knute and her cyborg partner Briareos. Their relationship is threatened when the government reveals a prototype combat clone, named Tereus, who is a clone of Briareos. However, a strange electronic virus begins turning citizens into violent zombies and the trio must team up to track down the terrorists behind this brutal attack before it tears the peaceful utopia apart.
