New US-Japan Anime Collaboration Features Big Talent

Sep 8th 2011
Los Angeles, CA: Cybergraphix Animation, Automaton Productions and A.P.P.P. Co. Ltd. recently announced the production of a new anime project called Moksha, featuring the voice talents of comic book & pop culture legend Stan Lee, Maulik Pancholy ("30 Rock", "Weeds", "Phineas & Ferb") and Lauren Tom ("Futurama", "King of the Hill", The Joy Luck Club). Moksha delivers a rich, deep storyline inspired by eastern philosophies, spaghetti westerns and a dash of pop physics. Aimed at teenagers and up, Moksha will debut at MIPCOM Junior next month in Cannes.

Amidst an explosion that nearly takes his life, Daniel Zoran (Maulik Pancholy) is miraculously saved by his enigmatic Grandfather (Stan Lee), but at a great cost. Daniel awakens to find himself with a mysterious tattoo branded upon his chest, his grandfather in an etherial state of being, and he now must rely on his grandfather's fiery steward, Claire (Lauren Tom), to guide him with his new and emerging supernatural abilities. While keeping the Monstrous Fiends of Chaos at bay and coming to terms with her own personal demons, Claire will be pushed to the breaking point, while good-natured Daniel struggles to keep up during the action-packed and surreal adventures.

“Its been an amazing experience developing and producing this property with such a stellar cast and top-notch production team.” said Avi Melman, General Manager of Cybergraphix Animation. “Moksha's unique blend of action and intrigue, with its deep and endearing characters, will draw audiences in.”
