Hey has anyone seen this anime? well if you havent it airs on AS (adultswim) on saturdays but i have the storyline if any are interested.
The once pristine landscape of the Kanagawa Prefecture experienced a sudden upheaval of the Earth’s crust 22 years ago. A strange environmental phenomenon caused the land to split and protrude upwards reaching unprecedented heights for an acute crust movement. After the incident, the Japanese capital was relocated to the Mie Prefecture since its economic and governmental operations were interrupted. Due to the abandonment and dilapidated state of the area, they dubbed it The Lost Ground.
A strange incidence of genetic alteration was then discovered after the upheaval. About 2% of the population born after the incident inherited special powers due to the radiation given off from underneath the Earth’s crust. Within the Lost Ground also exists the Alter Forrest where even the animals are endowed with Alter abilities. The explanation for these genetic alterations is still unclear but a new breed of humans called Alter Users have emerged from the natural disaster.
Kazuma, a young mercenary roams the Lost Ground, looking for any work he can find to sustain his livelihood within the harsh environment. As one of the few people that are gifted with the Alter ability, Kazuma can plaster his right arm and torso with a metallic alloy. A number of Alter Users exists within the slums of the Lost Ground as well as the city area. The Alter Users can manipulate and rearrange the atoms around them, thus forming their Alters. Within the slums, many Alter Users run amuck abusing their Alter abilities. To mitigate the effects of these renegade Alter Users within the undeveloped area, the police organization known as HOLD was formed. Within HOLD exists a group of elite Alter Users called HOLY. As their primary objective, HOLY is to suppress and capture what they call Native Alter Users. Those that are incarcerated have two choices. Either join HOLY or be confined indefinitely. Kazuma will meet such a fate and he will fight for his life trying to overturn the ideals of HOLY.
Amongst the elitists of the HOLY Alter Users is a young man named Ryuho. He commands a powerful Alter called Zetsuei. The unforgiving justice of Zetsuei mirrors Ryuho’s cold demeanor. A chance meeting between Kazuma and Ryuho will spawn a rivalry between the two. Their hatred for each other will ensnare the land with chaos and turmoil. It is a battle between the hunter and the hunted; a struggle to rebel against conformity; and a fight to uphold ones ideals and freedom. The epic battles within the Lost Ground will determine the fates of all who dwell there.
