In Treasure Town, life can be both gentle and brutal. This is never truer than for our heroes, Black and White, two street urchins who watch over the city, doing battle with an array of old-world Yakuza and alien assassins vying to rule the decaying metropolis. When foreign investors want to destroy the town and turn it into an amusement park, they face their greatest adversaries yet.

Beautifully crafted anime about a streetwise orphan named Black and his innocent young sidekick White, who patrol the skies and alleyways of Treasure Town guarding their turf while eking out a living through petty theft. When a powerful crime syndicate tries to take over the neighbourhood they’re in for more trouble than they bargained for as they come up against these two pint-sized ninjas and their superhuman abilities. The gripping storyline is an interesting blend of film noir and Saturday morning cartoon that will appeal to older children yet contains enough depth and pathos to keep adult fans of the genre captivated. Treasure Town itself is a colourful rat’s nest of garish attractions and decaying storefronts reminiscent of Ridley Scott’s vision of L.A. in “Blade Runner”. Arias has captured the spirit of the original manga perfectly. His intelligent script is further enhanced by some incredible animation and a very cool soundtrack of original music. Highly recommended.

A spectacular treat of animation; don't let the 'R' rating faze you! An emotional story of two brothers that will touch you, and leave you feeling mystified yet satisfied. A must watch for all anime fans and movie fans alike! :)
