Film Synopsis Summer Wars (released in August 2009)

Kenji Koiso, a high school math genius who has a secret crush on his senior Natsuki Shinohara agrees to accompany her back to her hometown not knowing what he is in for. Meeting her grandmother, a matriarch of the Shinohara family and descendant of Jinnouchi clan, Kenji is introduced, to his shock as her "fiance". Barely able to get out of the situation, Kenji is quickly thrust into a cyber war of unimaginable proportions as he battles against "Love Machine", a computer virus to regain control of OZ, a cyber world that has control over every aspect of our daily lives from traffic networks to communications. Will Kenji survive this battle of a lifetime and will he win the heart of the girl of his dreams?
