The movie opens with a narration stating there has been a fifty-year war consisting of the Eastern Federation against Europa using an array of different weapons: Nuclear, biological and chemical, which have heavily polluted the environment. A photoshoot follows, introducing Tetsuya, his father Dr. Azuma, Tetsuya's fiancée Luna, her father Dr. Kozuki, and Tetsuya's mother Midori. Tetsuya is in the war to spite his father; Dr. Azuma is a lead scientist to the Eastern Federation's new dictatorship government, and in a presentation towards investors he reveals that he has discovered Neo Cells, human cells that can form any body part and be transplanted without rejection. These are only found in an initially undisclosed ethnic group, but with the right funding, Azuma hopes to cure his wife, whose health is rapidly deteriorating due to a pollution-related illness. The council quickly dismisses Dr. Azuma's claims, however, a military adviser named Naito comes to Azuma and offers him the sponsorship he requires for his research and the development of his Neo Cells.

While walking away from a fight on the battlefield, Tetsuya hears a child's cry and pulls the child from the arms of its deceased mother. It transpires that the infant is booby-trapped, as the deceased mother is clutching a grenade with the pin seemingly connected to the child. The pin is released when Tetsuya lifts the child, but the ensuing explosion is unseen. In the next scene, Midori, now blind, is in her garden with an assistant, and while she checks outside for visitors, it appears she is visited by Tetsuya's ghost. Dr. Azuma, in the presence of Dr. Kozuki, receives a call informing him of his son's death.

Originally, CASSHERN was TV animation. And CASSHERN was turned into a movie in 2004.
However, CASSHERN of the movie version almost differs from CASSHERN of TV animation.
In CASSHERN of the movie version, the scenario was changed into the contents which are completely different from the TV animation version.
Therefore, in CASSHERN of the movie version, the impression is considerably different.
In CASSHERN of the movie version, the view of the world is quite decadent.
The name of the hero of CASSHERN of the movie version is Azuma Tetsuya.
It is the same name as CASSHERN of the TV animation version. However, Azuma Tetsuya of CASSHERN of the movie version is a military man.
In CASSHERN of the movie version, Azuma Tetsuya wore a military uniform like the old German army foot soldier.
He went to the battlefield and he died on the battlefield.
However, he revived by his father's experiment.
As a result, he has been changed into new human who has a terrific combat efficiency.
And, he renamed his name to CASSHERN.
In addition, to defeat the wicked android army corps that appeared newly, CASSHERN keeps fighting.
The special-effects technology of this movie is quite high-level.
And the action scenes of this movie are comparatively good.
However, I feel that the entertainment is insufficient for this movie.
So, I regard this special-effects movie as mediocre.
Therefore, favorite people of CASSHERN of the TV animation version had better not see this movie.
