LaMB is an animated film produced by Animax directed by Ryosuke Tei with the original script written by Carmelo S. J. Juinio, one of the finalists of the 2007 Animax awards Pan-Asia Animation competition (from Philippines), that was broadcast across several countries in 2009 in high definition. It is also the first and biggest Animax original production, featuring the French-Canadian band Simple Plan and the American band The Click Five that provided two different songs for the opening and ending themes of the movie.



The inhabitants of a harsh desert planet called Cerra have perfected a system of imprisonment without walls. Called "Lamination", those convicted of serious crimes are placed in a suit to ensure criminals are productive. But if not free, the criminals become members of society in a system of virtual slavery. They are hence called "LaMBs".

It follows protagonists Sara Integra (Eve1135) (Petrina Kow)[1], Keiko Suzuki (Josie Ho and Chie Tanaka) and Jack Griswold's (Van Ness Wu) struggle against Cerra's system of imprisonment. Sara (Eve1135) is an ex- weapon specialist who was placed inside the suit after she causes many lives to end due to an experiment gone wrong. Jack is a visiting scientist who tries to forget his deceased wife. Inadvertedly, Jack gets pulled into the politics behind the system of "Lamination", and a romance with Sara.


LaMB is Animax's first original production in High Definition, and "promises to revolutionize the entire entertainment experience via how content is delivered and marketed to consumers". Encompassing a series of multi-platform, multi-disciplinary, and multi-media activities that revolves around the launch of the movie on Animax, LaMB aims to redefine the entire entertainment experience for consumers from pre-premiere to post-premiere of the film in a campaign expected to last at least six months. The film is based on a screenplay entitled Laminated Woman: To the Sand Planet Cerra by Carmelo S. J. Juinio, a Filipino entrant of the 2007 Animax Award competition. Its release is considered by Animax to be an example of the industry potential of user generated content.

Canadian band Simple Plan's " I Can Wait Forever" is used as the title track for LaMB. American band The Click Five's song "Summertime" is also featured in the film. Animax Asia and Peach Blossom Media produced music videos for both songs that premiered on Animax across Asia and online on December 2008.[2]
