Review of 'SOS! Tokyo Metro Explorers: The Next (Shin SOS dai Tôkyô tankentai)'

sos_explorers.jpg Fifth grader Ryuhei Ozaki finds a journal called “Toyko Explorer Records” that appears to show the directions to treasure hidden under the streets of Tokyo. With the help of three friends he goes off to search for it. Entering the underground via a manhole they discover a man who still believes it is World War 2 then they come across a small town of social outcasts.

This fun movie is obviously intended for a younger crowd but enjoyable even for adults. The animation is quite good and the action never really stops once it gets started (even if it does not always make a lot of sense).
