In Japan on 1988, corrupt politician Yamamoto Akira took over Shibuya before seizing the rest of the country. Through his ability to control minds he created Paradise – his perfect world; a world without worries, murder or chaos, only an unnatural order. By banishing the souls of the adults into another dimension, Akira achieved the ability to control the masses and was also able to seal away the peoples’ ability to use their supernatural powers.
In this oppressed society, teenagers sooner commit suicide than become one of the “Deprived” but, when their teacher is shot dead by an assassin working for Akira, 18-year-old Tamashii Kioshi along with a small group of peers decide that the time has come to fight against their places in their society and restore Japan back to its former glory.
Set in a dystopian Japan, Take Me With You is a grim story about desire, sacrifice and hardship. Their dream of restoring Japan is a journey filled with pain, as their struggles bring to light what kind of people each of them really are.
Are they strong enough to seize their future?
