Synopsis

  • Texhnolyze is a Japanese anime television series directed by Hiroshi Hamazaki, from a screenplay by Chiaki Konaka, and produced by Yasuyuki Ueda, with original character design by Yoshitoshi ABe.

    The events take place in the vibrant yet dilapidated underground city of Lux. Denizens of Lux have come to call it "The City" and treat it as a sentient force. Three factions vie for control of the city: the Organo, a strictly professional conglomerate with ties to the criminal underworld in the prosthetics business ("Texhnolyze"); the Union, a fanatical populist group interfering with Organo's affairs; and Racan, a marauding group of Texhnolyzed youths. The series has an ensemble cast, but events particularly focus on Ichise, a stoic prize fighter who loses a leg and an arm to satisfy an enraged promoter; Onishi, a young but level-headed executive of the Organo who has many enemies; and Ran, a little girl who has a very important gift that affects the entire city. As they struggle to accept the challenges that they are dealt, the characters bear witness to major events that determine whether the city continues to exist.

    Texhnolyze aired on Fuji Television from April 16, 2003 to September 24 of the same year, totalling twenty episodes. Two "secret" episodes were included in the DVD release.

    Texhnolyze é uma série de televisão de anime japonês dirigida por Hiroshi Hamazaki, a partir de um roteiro de Chiaki Konaka, e produzido por Yasuyuki Ueda, com projeto de desings originais por Yoshitoshi ABe.

    Os eventos ocorrem na cidade vibrante, mas em ruínas subterrâneas de Lux. Habitantes de Lux passaram a chamá-lo de "The City" e tratá-lo como uma força consciente. Três facções disputam o controle da cidade: a Organo, um conglomerado estritamente profissional com laços com o submundo do crime no negócio de próteses ("Texhnolyze"); a União, um grupo populista fanático a interferir com os assuntos de Organo; e Racan, um grupo de saqueadores de jovens Texhnolyzed. A série tem um elenco, mas os eventos enfocam especialmente Ichise, um lutador profissional estóico que perde uma perna e um braço para satisfazer um promotor enfurecido; Onishi, um executivo jovem, mas equilibrado da Organo que tem muitos inimigos, e Ran , uma menina que tem um dom muito importante que afeta toda a cidade. Conforme se esforçam para aceitar os desafios que lhes são interpostos, os personagens testemunham grandes eventos que determinam se a cidade continua a existir.

    Texhnolyze foi transmitido pela televisão Fuji de 16 de abril de 2003 a 24 de setembro do mesmo ano, num total de vinte episódios. Dois episódios "secretos" foram incluídos na versão DVD.
