(ag) wrote: The middle part of the 20th Century Boys trilogy is set 15 years after the events of Bloody New Years Eve 2000. Japan is firmly under the control of 'Friend' and his followers. Genji is missing and his co-conspirators either in jail or in hiding. Taking up the baton against 'Friend' is none other than Genji's niece Kanna, the chosen one now a fiesty young woman.She volunteers to enter Friendland with her schoolmate to gleam more information about 'Friend' and his organisation and to try and prevent the end of mankind by a deadly virus in order to make 'Friend' a god. In the process she finds out more about her family especially her mother who was a doctor and her part in developing the virus.Although it's long I thoroughly enjoyed this movie which further enhances the storyline. I thought Aira Taira did a great job as the heroine Kanna along with Haruka Kinami as Kyoko.There are tantalising clues as to Friend's identity but of course he's not going to be revealed until the final part. The climax especially the last 30 mins builds up to an apocalyptic ending and the reappeance of a familiar face.I really can't wait for the final chapter to see how the storyline concludes. Roll on Part 3!!
