Shangri-La - Overview

is a new and fresh anime TV series. The story of the anime is set in a neo-futuristic age, in which Tokyo has turned into the world’s largest “jungle-polis” (a city in the jungle) that absorbs CO2 (carbon dioxide). A tower city called Atlas houses the rich and privileged, and is the object of yearning of all that are not allowed to enter. In this new world the elite lives in the comfort of the tower city, Atlas, while the less-privileged masses struggle in squalor, misery and poverty of the city of Duomo in the jungle.

The world economy in this fictional world is run on the principle of buying and selling carbon credits, which redeem the excessive amounts of CO2 that is evaporated in the atmosphere by the different countries and states-polluters are economically weakened by extreme emissions and usually fall in a situation of social unrest and uprisings (even civil wars). A new and enigmatic player intervenes in the market and using his almost inhuman accuracy starts to dictate international politics and even puts the entire world market on the verge of bankruptcy towards the end of the series, which might lead to a new World War.

Meanwhile, the tower city Atlas holds ancient secrets which cause an even more abrupt and sudden whirl of events. In these extremely difficult circumstances only one girl, Kuniko Hojo, and her band of revolutionary guerrillas can find a way to preserve and protect the future for everyone. Inhabited by a wide variety of colorful characters, such as a riotous and rebellious teenage girl (Kuniko Hojo), a child genius (Karin Ishida), a juvenile princess (Mikuni), a drag queen (Momoko), a female doctor (Sayoko), an army major (Kunihito Kusanagi), and an elderly gentleman and lady, Shangri-La’s hardcore world view plays out as an anime action saga.

For some people this anime TV series may seem a bit childish or overly clichéd at certain moments, but, all in all, it leaves you with many pleasant memories of the time you spent watching it and it isn't a bad anime overall.
