Plot: On a hot day right before the summer vacation, all first-year male students of the second class from a junior high school disappear. Was it an accident? A group abduction? In fact, they were hiding in an abandoned factory near the river, and used it as a liberation area to rebel against the adults. The adults are in great confusion by the huge and unexpected operations cooperated by the female students; entangled with real abduction cases, a corrupted mayor election, and even involving parents and television reporters who are thrilled by the liberation broadcast and barricade. The comedy mystery progresses in a light tempo that doesn’t give the audience a chance to breathe until the brilliant end that is full of satire.
Some stuff I need to update the opening post. Got a date, Dec. 13.
Takumi Kitamura as Mamoru Suzuhara, the protagonist, and a loner who barely talks in school and is always reading a book. He is a history buff who knows a lot about military science, and his one pillar of support is the chat group he has with like-minded military buffs. He has a crush on Aya Chiyono, his neighbor and childhood friend. Kyōko Yoshine as Aya Chiyono, a polite girl with a good upbringing who happens to be Mamoru's childhood friend. Though beautiful enough to win the school beauty contest, she always remains kind and doesn't let it get to her head. Her politician father has recently made the decision to move her to Tokyo against her will just one week ahead of her 17th birthday. Megumi Han as Kaori Yamazaki, a member of the track team who hates injustice most of all. She is always worried about Aya, her best friend. Her father runs a construction business. Tatsuhisa Suzuki as Sōma Ogata, an easy-going guy who is the center of Mamoru's class. He is popular with the girls. He joins Mamoru's planned birthday camping trip out of interest. Takeo Ōtsuka as Hiroto Honjō, a guy who was only dragged along to the camping trip by her childhood friend Saki, and is unenthusiastic for it. Haruka Michii as Saki Akutsu, a girl who lives in the moment and doesn't think too hard about most things. She wants to celebrate Aya's birthday and enthusiastically joins the birthday camping trip. Makoto Koichi as Malet, an 11-year-old boy who has already been hiding out in the coal factory before Mamoru and the others get there. He is an illegal alien who has been wandering in search of his family. Takahiro Sakurai as Masahiko Honda, the secretary of Aya's father. While he carries out his duties nonchalantly, he is actually a sharp-minded man.
Taka: Welcome to Anime Vice. Please check the battle rules. It's best to make a battle thread in the forums not the chat box.

Old Man Dream: Update with Three Callaberos. Only about halfway through it at the moment. Because it's a package film with a series of animated shorts, been taking my time getting through it this past week. Never got around to seeing it last night since I got swamped...
