posted on 2007-12-28 00:42 EST
Hakusensha's Melody manga magazine has announced that Reiko Shimizu's Himitsu - Top Secret philosophical science fiction suspense manga will be animated for a Spring 2008 television broadcast. Even though Shimizu has been publishing manga for over 25 years and have created such acclaimed works as Moon Child and Kaguya Hime, Himitsu - Top Secret will be the first manga of hers to be animated. Since Melody is a bimonthly magazine, Shimizu has only compiled three volumes of this manga so far since she started in 1999.
The story takes place five decades from now, when brain scanners have been perfected to the point that the government can retrieve up to five years' worth of memories from people's minds — even if they are dead. The investigators of the National Research Institute of Police Science's 9th Forensics Laboratory must weigh the ethical choices in the ultimate invasion of privacy as they delve into people's minds to solve crimes.
