Triple bill of feature-length animes based on the series of novels by Tow Ubukata which follow the adventures of a 15-year-old girl who is transformed into a cyborg. In 'Mardock Scramble: The First Compression' (2010), Rune Balot (voice of Megumi Hayashibara) is working as a prostitute when she is savagely attacked and left for dead. Fortunately, the futuristic world she belongs to contains technology advanced enough to keep her alive - though she will now inhabit a cyborg-like contraption called Mardock Scramble 09. In her new form Rune is given the chance to track down her assailant. She quickly discovers that he is part of the October Corporation that dominates much of the city and appears to have intentions just as destructive and ill-intentioned as the man who attacked her... In 'Mardock Scramble: The Second Combustion' (2011), Rune is rescued from the evil Dimsdale Boiled (Tsutomu Isobe) by Doctor Easter (Hiroki Touchi) and taken to the place known as Paradise. With secrets of Mardock all around her, what does the future hold in store for Rune? In 'Mardock Scramble: The Third Exhaust' (2012), Rune continues to seek a means of calling to account the man who attacked her. Key to her quest is finding a way to win gold chips containing memories at the Eggnog Blue Casino, but this will be far from straightforward.
