What's the story?

REVISIONS is a Japanese anime series about a group of young people trying to save the world by fighting for it in the future. How does that work? Seven years ago Daisuke Dojima was rescued from a kidnapper by his elementary school friends and a strange woman named Milo, who tells him that he'll one day be called upon to protect everyone around him. Now in his second year of high school, Daisuke spends his time preparing himself for this destiny, much to the chagrin of friends Gai, Lu, Marimari, and Keusaku. But when they get caught up in a "Shibuya Drift," and get transported to the year 2388, they find Shibuya surrounded by a vast wasteland, and under attack thanks to a hostile cyborg race known as Revisions. Now Daisuke and his friends must work with Milo, who is an AHRV agent from the future, to fight the cyborgs with their string puppet weapon technology. 

Is it any good?

This entertaining series is a compelling story about a group of teens caught up in circumstances that force them to help save the world. Daisuke is a fledgling hero who is growing into himself as he learns how to fulfill Milo’s prophecy. His friends aren’t perfect, but, as is the case in many teen stories, they appear more equipped to handle what's happening than the adults around them. This reflects the show's overall message, which calls for stopping the enemies of the future in order to save the present. Despite some gory moments, these details make Revisions’ action-packed tale appealing.
