In an endless desert without a speck of greenery, Sam Coyne rides a motor bike, looking for something, when he sees a girl being chased by seemingly-hostile ships. Sam saves the girl, whose name is Maya, who might actually not be a criminal on the run, but royalty... Before returning to the safety of his group's base, he sees a giant monster rise out of the sand. It's the monster who is his brother's enemy... The sand whale Ozma.
A 6 episode series. A legendary anime creator writing it. A fantastic concept. Exciting, eh? Well, not really. But that doesn't make Leiji Matsumoto's OZMA any less interesting. It just means you've got to adjust your expectations. Setting the world in a future where the world is covered in deserts and where humans live in isolated pockets, avoiding the deserts is one part Ark II, one part Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind and one part Dune.
