Manga Entertainment has released the UK Trailer for upcoming Anime MFKZ. This looks riotous,one crazy wild ride that looks violent, a mind bending hallucinatory. MFKZ or its proper name Mutafukaz is the creation of France’s Ankama Animations and Japan’s Studio 4°C. The actual design of the characters is like a combo of graffiti and anime style, the previous probably reflecting the music that’s on the film (Hip Hop).
The “Tekkonkinkreet” dream team of co-director Shojiro Nishimi and art director Shinji Kimura reunite to bring to life MFKZ, a dark but stunningly animated sci-fi vision mélange of anime, film noir, and Lucha Libre, Since its world premiere at the 2017 Annecy International Film Festival, its been making a lot of noise in the animation world. Now it’s time to see the film for ourselves!
The film centers on young Angelino and his skull-and-flame pal Vinz, who live in a seedy tenement in an LA-inspired dystopian metropolis – a burnt-out, gang, and cockroach-ridden neo-urban hell. Following a scooter accident, Angelino starts experiencing migraines and strange hallucinations, as well as fits of rage-inspired superpowers, as he slowly awakens to the truth of his origins: he is half human and half Macho, a supernatural alien race that is bent on taking over the planet.
Featuring the voices of Michael Chiklis (The Shield, American Horror Story), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, The Usual Suspects), Jorge Gutierrez (The Book of Life, Son of Jaguar), Dascha Polanco (Orange is the New Black, Joy), RZA, Vince Staples, and Danny Trejo (Machete, Predators).
