Anime isn’t the most diverse form of entertainment around, so when Urbance crossed my radar, my antennae went up.
The “Urbance” synopsis reads: In the big city, gender war rises. Sex is prohibited because of a genetic deadly virus. Ruled by hate and anger, boys and girls grow up apart from each other, forming rivals gangs. Among these lost teenagers, Kenzell and lesya will fight adversity and defy all the rules in order to live their love and restore peace. [Shadow & Act]
This sounds so intriguing. I’m a sucker for dystopian tales, and since most of them tend to exclude people of color, this is like a breath of fresh air.
Unfortunately, there is no release date yet, but I’ll be waiting with bated breath. See the trailer below.
