In 2700, mankind has found shelter underneath the earth’s surface. Uma is doing archive research for Section 092, an administrative apparatus entrusted with tracking down and stocking all reminiscences of life on the earth’s surface. Year after year the department gets more sloppy in handling its affairs, until no one cares about the past anymore and the officers leave one by one. One day, Uma comes across a badly damaged archive. In it, he recognizes a woman who talks about greenery, the sea, oblivion and a mysterious blue egg… An OAV full of poetry and nostalgia. Well designed characters, a carefully crafted production that smartly combines 2D and 3D, and a screenplay which is perfectly adapted to the specific format. Pale Cocoon is a beautiful series by Studio Rikka.
