Cast & Crew
Involves a government-implemented system in which people under the age of 24 are eligible to be picked at random for death. Having reached the age of 24, Kengo Fujimoto is appointed as one of the people responsible for handing out the ikigami, or death notices, informing people that they have 24 hours to live. This is just a courtesy, however--the method of death is actually a lethal nanocapsule injected in children at an early age which lays dormant in their pulmonary artery until it's activated by the government. Fujimoto vehemently opposes the law but isn't in a position to speak out against it. Instead, he continues doing his job as expected while having to deal with the various emotional responses of his victims.
Based on the comic "Ikigami" created by Motoro Mase.
