Anime retelling of Fritz Lang's 'Metropolis'. Ruled by the despotic Duke Red, ultra-futuristic city Metropolis is a playground for its rich citizens, but is serviced and kept going by an underclass of Robots toiling below ground. The Duke who lost his biological daughter is consumed by the desire to create a robot version of her, much to the chagrin of his adopted son, the belligerent loner Rock. Arriving in the poorer side of the city are Kenichi and his uncle, who are in search of missing scientist Dr. Laughton. But Dr Laughton is the genius behind Duke Red's robot-building centre and also mastermind of the part-human, part-robot replacement daughter the Duke has requested, known as Tima. Ever more jealous of his father's interest in the Tima project, Rock attempts to kill the Doctor and Tima just as Kenichi and his uncle arrive. However, Kenichi and his uncle rescue Tima and Rock pursues them through the robot underworld. Tima then starts to learn what it's like to be a girl and promptly falls in love with Kenichi. But it soon transpires that she has a special place in the Duke's plans and things go from bad to worse as the Duke plugs her into the robot grid, elevating her to serene leader of all Metropolis with disastrous results
