Harmony’s original novel synopsis:
In the future, Utopia has finally been achieved thanks to medical nanotechnology and a powerful ethic of social welfare and mutual consideration. This perfect world isn’t that perfect though, and three young girls stand up to totalitarian kindness and super-medicine by attempting suicide via starvation. It doesn’t work, but one of the girls—Tuan Kirie—grows up to be a member of the World Health Organization. As a crisis threatens the Harmony of the new world, Tuan rediscovers another member of her suicide pact, and together they must help save the planet...from itself.
The Empire of Corpses will open in theaters in Japan on October 2nd, Genocidal Organ on November 13th, and Harmony on December 4th. Funimation will release the films in North America in 2016.
