GLASS MAIDEN In the near-future...
Lags Town is located in a corner of Asia symbolizing a negative side of false prosperity.
A hard-boiled buddy story is staged in this town presenting spectacular gun-battles!
GLASS MAIDEN is a stylish and full-blown animation, and props and gadgets are depicted in meticulous detail whole through the story.
Having gone through 5 years of preparation, this original story is finally about to unfold...
CAT MAN is a temperamental character with no time for other people. Living in the city, he lives a solitary life and doesn't bother himself with the rest of the world.
In his stubbornness, he sticks to his own way of doing things, but can't seem to find any peace of mind.
"Always in pursuit of the greater good... to what end?" he murmurs to himself. He tries to be cool and in control, but he also wants to find deeper meaning in his life.
Will CAT MAN ever find any rest for his troubled soul?
