Cult TV Essentials: Aerial City 008

Created by Sakyo Komatsu and produced by Japanese puppeteer Kinosuke Takeda (Galaxy Troop Boy, Spaceship Silica), Aerial City 008 was a Japanese TV Series which aired from April 7th 1969 to April 3rd 1970 with a total of 230 episodes.

Aerial City 008 is set in the early 21st Century and is set in a futuristic city propelled over 70-80 feet above the ground, without any pollution. There are hovercraft cars, supersonic aircraft and much more!

Centering on the Ohara family, a variety of future perspectives are explored and developed. Unfortunately TV network NHK did little to conserve any of the 230 episodes. Only a few remain.
