Topic: Gunslinger Stratos
Anime isn't for everyone, but there's a new one (premiered April 4) that deals with parallel realities:
In 2115, the country known formerly as Japan has been split into two parallel worlds: the Frontier S (Stratos) and the 17th Far East Imperial City Management District. Frontier S is an outlaw universe in which freedom runs rampant, while the 17th Far East Imperial City Management District is a totalitarian universe completely bereft of freedom and is under constant surveillance.
When the two universes are starting to fuse into one, the government of each world initiates Operation Stratos, a world-scale protocol wherein a handpicked group of gunslingers, mercenaries, and special individuals, each from the two universes, will be sent in the year 2015 to alter the past by eliminating the other side until only one group survives, erasing a parallel universe in the process.
The story revolves on a group of gunslingers, each from the two universes who participate in Operation Stratos, particularly on a group of four childhood friends: Tohru Kazasumi, Kyōka Katagiri, Kyōma Katagiri, and Shizune Rindo, who all must confront their own flaws and differences when they battle their alternate selves in order to survive.
It's distributed by the same studio that put Sword Art Online out there (a show with a great concept that showed promise in its initial episodes but later degraded into some kind of strange, sappy Lifetime Channel type mess).
