About Jin-Roh The Wolf Brigade Blu-ray

Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade returns to shelves with this new release!

In a very different Tokyo from the one we know today, the totalitarian government rules with an iron fist. But a group called "the Sect" is staging demonstrations and challenging the government's martial law. Constable Fuse of the Capital Police's Special Unit is on a mission to stop a Sect demonstration when he encounters a girl in the sewers under Tokyo.

When he fails to shoot as ordered, he is put on trial, questioned, and "re-conditioned" as a soldier. But the dead girl haunts him, both in his dreams and in the face of her sister, whom Fuse has befriended. But Fuse has made himself a target for some very powerful men... And as the world comes crashing down around him, Fuse is continually challenged to decide what is real and what is right.

Special Features: Trailers, Interviews.

A Haunting, Hi-Def Masterpiece

by

Considered to be the last of the traditional cel-animated anime titles when Japanese studios were all going digital, Jin-Roh is like saving the best for last. Set in an alternate history Japan in which the axis were victorious after WWII, a man named Fuse who is an officer in the "Wolf Brigade," a paramilitary police squad witnesses a young girl commit suicide with a bomb intended for an act of terrorism (or perhaps protest?). He is unable to get over the event, especially when he is visited by the girl's sister, who happens to look identical to her. This slow-burn is one of the most beautifully animated pieces ever committed to film courtesy of Production IG. Written by the legendary Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell, Patlabor) and directed by Hiroyuki Okiura (Letter to Momo). THIS is the definitive presentation of this dark, haunting film in stunning high definition. A must watch for any student of film and anime fan alike.
