Mathematics whiz Kenji Koiso spends his summer holidays working to maintain the virtual city of OZ. When he accompanies his senior Natsuki Shinohara to her hometown, he is bewildered to be introduced as her fiancé. During his stay, Kenji receives a mysterious e-mail containing an intriguing mathematical riddle. When he finally solves it, Kenji finds himself thrust into a cyberwar of unimaginable proportions. Will he survive this battle of a lifetime and win Natsuki’s heart?

Associate Professor Deborah Shamoon from the Department of Japanese Studies whose key area of research is manga and anime will present a short talk on the creation of virtual worlds before the screening on Fri 22 March.
