->''Welcome to The Unholy Land! Colors have scent. Sounds possess images. In this future world, where biochemical weapons have changed the game, an unlucky few have their senses blended. They are gifted with abilities beyond what normal humans feel. They possess synesthesia. This makes them the perfect assassin. And a perfect target. Welcome to the new world. Welcome to the war.''

Neophyte professional photographer Maria Osawa travels from Japan to Shanghai to report on the annual festival, where she also hopes to meet Canaan, a mysterious ActionGirl who saved her life a couple of years ago and has been [[LesYay fascinating]] her ever since. However, things get ugly when a NebulousEvilOrganization targets Maria. Known as the "Snakes", they are led by Canaan's [[TheRival arch]]-[[FoeYay rival]] Alphard and are somehow involved with the "Ua Virus"--the biological weapon that left Maria the only known survivor of the deadly Shibuya terrorist attack. Fortunately for Maria, Canaan [[BigDamnHeroes shows up to save her]] again, much to her (and [[YuriFan the fans']]) excitement.

''Anime/{{Canaan}}'' is an anime series based upon a scenario from the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}} mystery AdventureGame titled ''[[VisualNovel/FourTwoEightFuusasaretaShibuyaDe 428: Fuusasareta Shibuya de]]'', which (the scenario, not the whole game) was created by Kinoko Nasu and Takashi Takeuchi of TypeMoon fame (at which point many tropers rush off to leech it from the Internet, no further questions asked). Since the game is really obscure outside of Japan (its notability in the West basically being "that VisualNovel ''{{Famitsu}}'' gave a 40"), here's a [[http://replay.waybackmachine.org/20090601184300/http://akiba-ch.com/?p=902 detailed synopsis]] of ''428'' in English.
