Summary: LaMB is an animated film produced by Animax. The film has also been developed into four different episodes for Mobile and PSP users.
The original script for the film was written by Carmelo S. J. Juinio, one of the finalists of the 2007 Animax Awards Pan-Asia Animation competition. Juinio is one of the mentors of the Far Eastern University Literary Guild and a recipient of the Philippines’s Don Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature.
In 2009, the competition was broadcast in high definition across several countries. The film was illustrated by Yasufumi Soejima and directed by Ryosuke Tei. It was the first Animax original production that provided two different songs for the opening and ending themes of the movie, featuring the music of Simple Plan and The Click Five.
The film tells the story of a futuristic inhabited planet that has seemingly perfected a system of justice and imprisonment, called “Lamination”. Individuals convicted of serious crimes are encased in laminated suits, which results in virtual slavery. The criminals are referred to as “LaMBs”. The protagonists struggle with the political and ethical system of laminated imprisonment, leading to the eventual development of a romantic relationship between a free citizen and a LaMB.
