Animax to premiere 'Appleseed' as movie of the month on 26 August

MUMBAI: Animax, international animation channel will showcase an exclusive premiere of the animation movie - Appleseed on Saturday 26 August at 7 pm.

Appleseed illustrates a story in the year 2131 and the post-apocalypse period, in a world called Olympus created after a non-nuclear war where the world is dominated not only by humans but mechanical Cyborgs, informs an official release.

A fierce war has left the world barren and desolate and ex-soldier Deunan Knute travels the wastelands fighting alone, not knowing that the war is over. With no mode of communication and nobody but herself, Deunan is attacked by a helicopter and knocked unconscious, and wakes up in the utopian city of Olympus.

All seems peaceful and calm, especially after the war and Deunan is quickly brought up to date by her ex-lover Briareos. While she appreciates the happiness of the people of Olympus, Deunan gradually senses something amiss - the tranquility is almost eerie, and she learns from the stunning Hitomi that most of the 'people'are actually clones.

With the near-complete destruction of mankind in the war, even Briareos is almost-all machine, and Hitomi herself is a Bioroid. In the new world order Olympus has become the leader to the rest of the countries, depended on for their very existence. But lurking beneath the surface is a web of sinister cover-ups and changes which threaten to destroy mankind while preserving it - tensions are growing, and when Deunan discovers an insidious conspiracy in Olympus itself, she must face her own past in the battle to save the fate of humanity, adds the release.
