Trilogy's 1st film to open in November after creator Tow Ubukata presented it at NY
The official website for Susumu Kudo and GoHands' Mardock Scramble anime film trilogy has begun streaming a 30-second television commercial for the first film on Friday. Tow Ubukata, the author of the original Mardock Scramble science-fiction novel series, personally presented the world premiere of Mardock Scramble: The First Compression at New York Comic Con last Friday. The film will then open in Japan on November 6.
Viz Media and Simon & Schuster describe the plot of the first novel volume, which will ship in North America next January, as the following:
Why me? It was to be the last thought a young prostitute, Balot, would ever have…as a human anyway. Taken in by a devious gambler named Shell, she became a slave to his cruel desires and would have been killed by his hand if not for a private investigator and his self-aware Universal Tool, Oefcoque. Now a cyborg, Balot has not only physical powers, but the ability to disrupt social environments. She chases after Shell, his partner-in-crime Boiled, and faces down a variety of insane villains in this pulse-pounding cyberpunk noir adventure.
