Tetsujin 28 (12) (Japan 2004 Yasuhiro Imagawa (Episodes 1–3) 75 min)

Classic robot anime on the big screen in this Far East anime fix of the month, introduced by anime expert Helen McCarthy.

In post-WWII Japan, Prof. Shikishima has built up Shikishima Industries to be a technological powerhouse developing robots. However, at the heart of their success lurks a dark secret from the war, something that cost the life of his mentor Prof. Kaneda. The series opens as Kaneda's son, the genius boy detective Shotaro Kaneda is in hot pursuit of his arch enemies, the Murasame Brothers. As he searches for them near the Tokyo Tower construction site he is suddenly captured and taken hostage. Meanwhile, a giant missile is detected heading straight for Tokyo. Fired from a remote southern island that has been uninhabited since the end of the war, this mysterious missile and its payload will change Shotaro's life forever.
