While there was potential for a Hollywood adaptation a few years back from Universal, it’s been quiet for the Vexille property for several years now. Crunchyroll is giving it a bit of an injection of attention as they’ve begun streaming the feature thanks to their partnership with Crunchyroll. The feature length film is available in its original Japanese language with English subtitles. Due to it being an older license from Funimation they only have the rights to stream it in the US and Canada.
The film was directed by Sori Fumihiko, who has been involved in the 3DCG anime side for quite a few years.
Plot Concept: In the near future, Japan’s scientists have perfected the merging of biotechnology and robotics, its benefits extending the lifespans of all humans. However, the United Nations deem the advanced technology a dangerous threat and begins strict surveillance on Japan.
Refusing to abide by the UN’s demands to halt research, the rogue nation isolates itself from the world. Enter Vexille, a young female operative of S.W.O.R.D., a specialized military unit charged with policing the potential misuse of robotic technology, sent to infiltrate the neo-isolationist Japan to prevent a potential biotechnological nightmare!
