Kenji is good at math, bad with girls, and spends most of his time hanging out in the all-powerful, online community known as OZ. The girl of his dreams, Natsuki, hijacks him for a starring role as a fake fiancé at her family reunion. Things only get stranger from there. A late-night email containing a mathematic riddle leads to the unleashing of a rogue Artificial Intelligence intent on using OZ to destroy the real world. As Armageddon looms, Kenji and his new “family” set aside their differences and band together in this “near-perfect blend of social satire and science fiction,” which won the Japan Academy Prize for Animation of the Year in 2010.

The Raccoons practice and perfect the ancient art of transformation until they are even able to appear as humans. In often hilarious ways, the Raccoons use their powers to try to scare off the advancement of civilization. But will it be enough? Or will the Raccoons learn how to live in balance with the modern world?
