News MVM To Release Canaan on January 28
Series about "synesthesiac assassin."
The UK Anime Network reports that MVM will release the anime CANAAN on January 28, as shown on a page on MVM's Anime-on-line store website. The 13-part series is set two years after the Tokyo district of Shibuya was ravaged by a biological terrorist attack. Maria Osawa was saved when her father inoculated her against the virus, but she is left with partial amnesia from the shock. From the MVM page: "Colors have scent. Sounds possess images. In this future world, where biochemical weapons have changed the game, an unlucky few have their senses blended. They are gifted with abilities beyond what normal humans feel. They possess synesthesia. This makes them the perfect assassin... and the perfect target."
