I never caught on to popular shows in the US, and I’ve never watched many X-Files episodes. But you know, the underlying plot in Canaan is so much like the X-Files – an experimental virus, a political conspiracy among the CIA, China, Japan among other things, a shocking cooperation between the CIA and the Snake (Michael Moore-esque much?)….We have a nearly perfect formula. Add great action, pathos, awesome performances by two tragic characters – Liang and Hakko, voiced by veteran seiyuus Tanaka Rie and Noto Mamiko, and we have a summer blockbuster. Damn, I thought nothing good came out in the summer in the anime world!
From Pink Tentacle –
…Japan has had its fair share of UFO sightings over the years, but few encounters have been as peculiar as the one involving the mini-UFO captured…
Ray’s Take: “Sir, it appears a bunch of our portable potties fell out of our space shuttle and landed in Japan.” “So, what’s the problem?” “Well, sir, these things are biohazard…” “The Japanese are like our doormat and dumping ground for crap. It’s payback for the trade deficit!” “…Uh, What era are you from, sir?”
