YesAsia Editorial Description

Based on Oshii Mamoru's manga, 1999 animated feature Jin-Roh is set in an alternate world 1950s Japan that is beset by riots and terrorism and ruled over by a fascist government. Jin-Roh is preceded by two Oshii-directed live-action feature films set in the same world, The Red Spectacles and Stray Dog, though timeline-wise it is a prequel to the other two films. Unable to finish off the trilogy himself (as he was working on Ghost in the Shell at the time), Oshii tapped for the job first-time director Okiura Hiroyuki, an animator who had worked on Ghost in the Shell and Patlabor 2. Packed with political, historical, and literary allusions and metaphysical musings, Jin-Roh is a brilliantly animated, emotionally jarring allegorical tale that both entertains and challenges.

Fuse Kazuki is a member of Japan's heavily armed anti-terror police unit, Kerberos Panzer Cops. They are trained to defend and attack like ravenous, blindly loyal dogs - like Kerberos, the hellhound that guarded the gate to Hades. During a mission, however, Kazuki hesitates to shoot a young girl from a terrorist guerrilla group, leading to her suicide bombing. A troubled Kazuki is sent back to academy, during which time he gets pulled into a secretive Kerberos unit called Jin-Roh, or Wolf Brigade. He meets Kei, the older sister of the suicide bomber girl, and as the two grow closer, Kazuki realizes that they are both pawns in a greater rivalry between Kerberos and the Metro Police.

16頁全彩解說手冊

  日本在戰敗後過了十幾年,由於經濟崩潰導致整個社會動盪不安,為了維持社會的治安因而誕生了「首都警」這個機構,並以配備了強化裝甲服與重武裝的「特殊機甲大隊」為中心,藉由強勢武力來打擊反政府勢力的暴動。

  伏一貴是特殊機甲大隊的一員,在一場鎮壓游擊隊的行動中,由於不忍心開槍而目睹一名少女引燃炸彈自爆的景象,從此那個女孩的影像便一直烙印在他的心裡揮之不去。

  某日,伏一貴巧遇了那個少女的姊姊,兩人之間的感情也開始了發展;只是這份純潔的愛情早已混雜了政治鬥爭的血腥,不同的成長背景與難以承受的現實壓力,這對戀人最後回到了少女當初自爆的地下水道,面對各自原本註定悲淒宿命……

Alternate History at its Best Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I've seen this subtitled in English, and I absolutely love it. Yes, its a bit slow in the beginning, but well worth it. the animation is wonderful and the story is a deep and complex one, but not hard to understand once you've seen it all. One of the best alternate world history movies I've seen yet.

JIN-ROH VCD (Japanese Ver.) Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
This movie is very complex to understand at first due to subtitle(if I understand Japanese, I will also find it hard to understand because the story contain very impressive story of betrayal and political intrigue in there), but I recommend it. The movie is slow, but don't let that stop to buy it.
