However, he is revived, and a price is placed on his head. Thus begins a boy's life on the run from all of humankind.
The film is slated to open in Japan on September 30.
The manga already inspired a 3D CG anime film trilogy, two television anime seasons, and three original anime DVDs by Polygon Pictures
