Movie - Altered Carbon: Resleeved (2020) [+]

Altered Carbon: Resleeved (2020) is a prequel anime film to Altered Carbon. Takeshi Kovacs (Ray Chase) is woken up and hired to investigate a Yakuza organization where the "retiring" head voluntarily dies to make way for the new head of the clan. But he gets saddled protecting a young tattoo artist vital to the ceremony and has to partner with a female CTAC (special police) agent on a mission of her own.

Graphics and voice acting are good. The story turns out interesting and deals with the concept of permanent death when the rich can live forever by transferring their stacks to another body. Also has a bit of a melodramatic twist in that Kovacs' sister Reileen (Elizabeth Maxwell) shows up and eventually recognizes him (they're both in different bodies).
