    He's a photographer all the way through the series. At the risk of dropping a spoiler, he gets his power from the film.

    And, yeah, I know what anime is, having visited Ghibli and even had a short stints working with both Katsuhiro Otomo and Stan Lee (not together, alas). But I find no value in trying to draw such divisions. "Cartoon" works fine for me.

    That goes for manga and bandes desinee too

    Being that "anime" is a borrowed word I don't see that it matters whether someone call it "anime" or "cartoon".

    Well... Actually he doesn't. I won't go into where he gets his power from though since I wouldn't want to spoil it for you.

    Well I watched a few episodes myself, and so far each of these has some kind of hot scene, so I suppose the creators have learned their lesson from Blow-up: how could you make anything about photo without including sex? Or death? Or Kodachrome, for that matter, in episode 2, I think.

    I'm curious to see where the plot line goes, so I'll be watching more.
    Using film since before it was hip.

    Can't get the episodes to run in latest version of Firefox and Flash, but it looks pretty good. It has that old-timey Wired (that so passé 90s magazine...) feeling of "where the is the information I want". But I'll stick around, poke some of the anime-coloured levers and see where it gets me...

    I love how the kodachrome he shoots gets developed by the bad guys into black and white prints

    There is a torrent of the whole season, that weights at 4GBs.

    It has all the elements of a good anime:
    futurist society but with doses of classical japan, the perverted and the naive, sluts and schoolgirls, lethal supernatural powers and guns, weird stuff and complex plot, sex and violence and lots of blood.
    I love it!
