Production Notes:

Release date is that of general theatrical screening in the United States. Screened at the Annecy Animation Film Festival on June 4, 2012 and the New York Asian Film Festival on July 12, 2012.

It is said that the director Keiichi Sato decided to make this film to pass on a message to those who had lost the will to live after the natural disasters that hit Japan in 2011. The film is dark and gruesome at times; and particularly disturbing at the moments when one realizes how far humans can be pushed by desperation and hunger. But the film also shows one the brighter side through the goodness inherent in each one of us; and the vitality of death.

Alternate Title: "アシュラ."

English Title: "Ashura."
