[video] Noein - On Location

"In the near future, a violent battle takes place between the dimension La'cryma (protector of humanity) and the dimension Shangri-La, bent on the annihilation of all space-time. A group known as the Dragon Calvary is dispatched through space and time, searching for the only thing that can stop the invasion: the Dragon's Torque. In the present, 12-year-old Haruka and her friend Yuu are contemplating running away from home when they meet a member of the Dragon Calvary named Karasu (Crow). He believes that Haruka possesses the Dragon's Torque - and claims to be Yuu from 15 years in the future. Noein has been an instant hit with American audiences: acclaimed anime director Kazuki Akane calls it 'Anime's version of Stand By Me'. See what anime fans everywhere are talking about and enter the world of Noein." -- iTunes Store
