Synopsis
From the creator of "Ninja Scroll." Japanese animators take us to the year 2808 for a look at criminals given a "choice" of sentences. Action and suspense. Volumes 1, 2 and 3 included on one disc. Volume 1: In the year 2808, three criminals are offered a choice: Spend the rest of their lives aboard a maximum-security orbital prison, or return to Earth as agents of the Cyber Police. Parole violations will be rare as each criminal is fitted with a booby-trapped, high-explosive collar which operates on a 24-hour timer. If ever a check-in is missed, the consequences would be... gruesome. For every criminal caught, the agents receive a "bounty" that reduces their total sentence, so some day they may walk free again. Terrorists have taken control of the city's tallest space-scraper. Not only does the building hold the primary nodes for the city's computer grid, but 50,000 people are still trapped inside! In principle, the job is simple: Break into the most secure building in the city; find and eliminate the terrorists; rescue the hostages. But there's no time to waste, because the collars have a 24-hour time limit, and the clock is ticking! Volume 2: A member of the Cyber Police has turned traitor and sold confidential police data to a mysterious customer who could destroy the Cyber Police forever. But before that can happen, the heroes have 24 hours to uncover the plot. The trail leads to an illegal black market dealing in stolen body parts. Goggles is reunited with his ex-partner-in-crime, and together, they find themselves face-to-face with MOCLOS, the military's ultimate killing machine. Volume 3: The Vampire Case. One by one, genetics researchers are turning up dead - all have suspicious fang wounds on their necks. The most recent victim, Ichiro Edajima, used his own blood to scrawl a cryptic message on the wall and left notes to a very unusual retro-virus on his computer. The trail points to the top of the space elevator, and the cryogenic suspension facility tethered there. But the frozen death of cryogenic sleep may not have any meaning for one of the undead... and vampires can be hungry when they wake up!

This DVD containing all three volumes of the series is out of print and consequently we have limited stock available. Thank you for your patience.
