Rapture TV To Air Wolf's Rain

Date: 2005 September 24th Saturday [9:22] | Posted By: Joe

The folks from new UK Station Rapture TV have sent us their latest press release with details of their first anime title - Wolfs Rain which will be screened on Thursday 17th November (and repeated on the 20th). What the press release doesn't mention is that the fantastic Yoko Kanno provided the music for Wolfs Rain (along with music for Cowboy Bebop and Ghost In The Shell: Stand Alone Complex).

Rapture will also reveal another anime title at the MCM Expo at the end of October. There is much speculation in fandom over what this title will be, if it will be another Bandai/Beez title or something else from another distributor.
Full Story
Press release as follows:

Wolf’s Rain

Rapture is very pleased to confirm the first acquisition of its ‘Anime’ output; Keiko Nobumoto’s critically acclaimed series Wolf’s Rain. It will be scheduled on Thursdays at 8.30pm, and repeated on Sundays at 8.30pm.

Rapture will launch on the 14th of November in the entertainment section of Sky’s EPG, with Wolf Rain’s first episode screened on Thursday the 17th, and will be repeated on the 20th.

The second ‘Anime’ acquisition will be announced at the MCM Expo, held in the Excel conference centre, on the 29th of October 2005.

This 26 episode series is set in a post-apocalyptic future. The human race is reduced to living in large dome-like cities surrounded by barren wasteland. Although wolves are supposedly extinct, they freely roam the cities disguising themselves as humans in order to survive.

Four of these human-like wolfs, Kiba, Tsume, Hige and Toboe are in search of a place they call paradise, which can be found by following the smell of Lunar Flowers. They follow a strong scent of the lunar flowers, which leads them to Cheza, a young girl who lives in an abandoned laboratory. Will they find paradise together?

This breath-taking piece of Anime was created by Keiko Nobumoto, who also brought us Tokyo Godfathers and Kingdom Heart. He started his career as Animation Photographer on Akira in 1988, a good place to start, and also brought us the Cowboy Bebop movies.
