Based on the best selling manga series written and illustrated by Motoro Mase, Tomoyuki Takimoto’s dystopian future feature Death Notice: Ikigami (aka Ikigami: The Ultimate Limit) is up for release on UK DVD. Taking elements from “Logan’s Run” and “Battle Royale” Death Notice paints a dark, chilling picture of a future Japan where citizens are routinely killed, by law, “for the good of the nation.” Death Notice streets on March 7th.
Synopsis: If you had only 24 hours left to live, how would you spend it? To encourage productivity among citizens, the Japanese government has introduced its own process of unnatural selection: all people between the ages of 18 and 24 are eligible for a death lottery. Those deemed unproductive for the common good are chosen to die and served an "ikigami", or death notice, 24 hours before their end. Ikigami follows the story of some of the victims, but also that of Matsuda, whose grim and reluctant task it is to deliver notice of impending doom.
