Summary

Summary

A high-tension dystopian drama with cross-over appeal for fans of graphic novel and avid readers alike.

Congratulations! You have been randomly selected by the government...to DIE in 24 hours! Dear Citizen: Thank you for your loyalty. You've no doubt noticed that the world is a troubled place. People are apathetic, lazy, unmotivated. You've probably asked yourself WHY ISN'T ANYTHING BEING DONE TO STOP THIS SYSTEMATIC DECLINE? Rest assured that measures are being taken. Beginning today, we will randomly select a different citizen who will be killed within 24 hours of notification. We believe this will help remind all people how precious life is and how important it is to be a productive, active member of society. Thank you for your continued attention and your cooperation and participation...

Featuring:

Episode 17: National Welfare Immunization

Episode 18: Two Fallen in War

Do we have the right to control life and death?

Reads R to L (Japanese Style) for mature audiences.
