The saga begins in the year 2145 A.D.
Neo Tokio, a city-nation created after a cataclysmic event, is considered by its citizens to be a perfect world. However, it is actually a simulated reality controlled by Supreme Executives for the purpose of pacifying and subduing all forms of creative freedom; restricting self-expression, curbing intellectual curiosity and perpetually enslaving its citizens for private gain.
Logline: In the dystopian future of 2145 Gommi Arcadian, a shy teenage prodigy, discovers a mysterious mask that helps him uncover the truth about his world and his role in the imminent battle to free its citizens from the clutches of an elite shadow army led by a relentless ruler.
