Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere (Fall 2011, Summer 2012 TV Series)
Director: Manabu Ono
Writers: Tatsuhiko Urahata, Seishi Minakami, Kurasami Sunayama and Yoriko Tomita
Alternative History (another form of speculative fiction) is a risky thing to pull off and actually do well enough. On the one hand, you can end up with some interesting pieces like Umberto Eco’s Baudolino or The Ambition of Oda Nobuna but on the other hand you end also with complete crud like Black Knight or A Kid in King Arthur’s Court. Fortunately, what I am looking at is more the former then the latter, that being Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere.
