Tekkonkinkreet

Dir: Micheal Arias, 2006. Rated R. Anime.
Tekkonkinkreet

Welcome to Treasure Town. It's an old and fading fantasy town quietly disappearing under the spread of modern Japan. But it doesn't stand alone. Black and White, two street orphans, rule Treasure Town with all the charm and wild crazy that every classic Peter Pan deserves. Don't confuse these cats with Disney's version. These lost boys live just this side of lunacy but are not without heart.

Change arrives like a slow earthquake and soon they are battling real gansters, alien assassins and urban development. Truth is a major player here and gives the fantastical its impact. Mythology explodes from every corner of this tale and threatens to trample our heroes, who are only children after all, into the dark recesses that inevitably follow change.

Violent and full of love, Tekkonkinkreet can be seen again and again for its depth, beauty and it's wicked cool. The artistry is envelopling, mind blowing and I doubt you will ever see it all. So many little details that piece together a fading city, an alley, a child's room. In the middle of chaos they must remember one thing:  Truth is love and love is all you need.
