Synopsis: In a world with an alternate history, a great war finally comes to an end leaving the earth diseased and polluted. The geneticist Dr. Azuma vies for support from the government for his neo-cell treatment that he claims can rejuvenate the body and regenerate humankind. The government leaders, guarding their own deeply entrenched powers, turn down the professor. Driven to complete his work, Dr. Azuma accepts a secret offer from a sinister faction of the powerful military. After an incident occurs in Dr. Azuma's lab, a race of mutant humans known as the Shinzo Ningen are unleashed upon the world. Now only the warrior known as Casshern, reincarnated with an invincible body, stands between the Shinzo Ningen and a world on the brink of annihilation.

After fifty years of bitter warfare

the Greater Eastern Federation

has defeated the European Union

and taken control

of almost all of the Eurasian continent.

But frequent acts of terrorism

have occurred in response to

the all-out discrimination

and oppression of the government,

which espouses a policy of racial superiority.

Conflict in Zone Seven

has been particularly intense.

The authorities decided on a major expansion

in military might to resolve the situation

and many youg men were sent again to war.

Im honoured to present

the results of my research today

to this forum of the Health Ministry

of the Greater Eastern Federation.

As you know,


our nation is, with ever increasing momentum,

establishing a co-prosperity sphere in Eurasia.

But the speed of our victory

should not hinder us

from yet further advances.

The first matter we need to consider

is that of our nation's medical care.

Radiation, industrial waste,

germs caused by chemical warfare.

Environmental diseases caused thereby

are a serious threat

affecting 60% of our population.

The frequency of sudden mutations

in the human body is particularly desperate

and current medicine is incapable

of providing treatment.

l wish to present a finding

l have made in this area.

l refer to what l call neo-cells.

Following many long years of research

l discovered that these highly distinctive cells

can be found in a certain small ethnic group.

They are able to metamorphose into any cell

and are the source of all human cells.

All the internal organs,

skin, bones, nerves, nails, hair,

by cultivating and manipulating these cells,

we will be able to produce all the organs

we need whenever we need them.

We will thus be free to create spare parts

for human beings,

and with no risk of tissue rejection

caused by transplanting.

This is truly the medical technology

we have been awaiting so long.

What are the prospects

for its practical application?

immediate, with the appropriate facilities.

Our clone technology is years ahead of yours!

It's just empty theory!

Father, do you want to hear any more of this?!

Certainly it's only theory at present,

but if you grant me the research facilities

and the financing that l need,

we will be able to save

the whole of our population.

You yourselves, your children,

your parents,

and your wives.


When the war's over, let's get married!


Was it really to see this that we fought the war?

Fifty years of interminable struggle,

and too exhausted to rebuild our society.

I read your paper:

Regenerative therapies employing neo-cells.

Truly the technology of our dreams,

if it's really possible.

Its definitely possible.

If you are able to continue your research.

Professor Azunma!

Those thick-headed officials in the Ministry

of Health won't support your research.

Indeed, they can't support it.

That's because in our country

the term original human is itself taboo.

Excuse me for not introducing myself.

Im Kaorun Naito of Nikko Hairai Inc.

On the request of a particular individual,

we've already built a laboratory

to undertake your research

based on your paper.

What are you talking about?

The military has begun to take an interest.

General Kamijo?

If you wish, you may set up a laboratory at

Army Headquarters as early as tomorrow.

I hear your wife is unwell.

What are you trying to say?

Let's work together

to realise our dreams!

Azunma Residence

Dr Kozunki, move slightly to the right.

That's fine!

Maybe place a hand on her shoulder?

That'll be fine.

Smile, please.
