re­leased OUT NOW! 2014 | 12 | Blu- ray & DVD ( dual

for­mat)/ DVD

This lav­ish 11- part an­ime thriller from the di­rec­tor of Cow­boy Be­bop con­cerns two mys­te­ri­ous boys bomb­ing Toyko lo­ca­tions, chased by cops and darker forces. It’s su­perbly made, with cin­e­matic ac­tion set­pieces, but its story and char­ac­ters are flimsy. How­ever, the jaw- drop­ping fi­nale is both nutty and beau­ti­ful.

Ex­tras Two com­men­taries and sep­a­rate dis­cus­sion by the dub cast; the Blu- ray adds a 100- page book. An­drew Os­mond

Hats are just great, ain’t they?
