I’d been waiting for Urbance to show up on the web for years now. The trailer I saw way back when was inciting both visually and sonically. Now the first episode is out and it definitely delivered. It was not what I expected and in my opinion that was both good and bad though mostly the former. Somehow I missed the kickstarter which is a shame because I would have liked to have supported it. Apparently there is a video game on the way as well. Here’s what the series is about:

In the crumbling inner city, sex kills. The urban landscape is split in two — men on one side, women on the other— opposing each other. COEVO seems to be the only hope: a government medical treatment developed to cure every single citizen except that those wearables haven’t produced the expected results yet… Born among this lost generation of frustrated gangs, Kenzell and Lesya live each day as their last, defying anyone who stands in the way of their union. Like modern avatars of Romeo and Juliet, they will have to choose between love or their kind, Passion VS Reason, Deadly Eves VS Neo Blasterz… In their flamboyant relationship lies the premises of a revolution against the authorities, the vicious Mediators and their mysterious separatist laws. Rebels can change the world…

That was then. The first episode is now. Check it out and share your thoughts.
