Submarine 707R is a 2003 homage to a 1960's manga series by Ozawa Satoru. It comprises two 50-minute episodes available in English (2.0, 5.1, DTS) and Japanese (2.0, 5.1, DTS) with English subtitles.

In the near future a mysterious group called the USR launches a series of attacks on naval targets across the globe. In response several nations form the Peace Keeping Navy (PKN) to hunt down and destroy the aggressors. While most of the member countries are able to provide sophisticated submarines and surface vessels, Japan is only able to donate the outdated and obsolete Submarine 707.

The initial plot line sounds promising, but the implementation is unfortunately a little poor. At 100 minutes total, the screenwriters could have written a fairly reasonable stand-alone film based on the manga, but instead appear to have produced two episodes to introduce the start of the manga story. Rather than a satisfying military action film we are just left with what feels like two pilot episodes for a series that will never be continued. If you don't like anime series that just trail off without conclusion then this one isn't for you.

Another victim of the story length is character development. Manga Entertainment's packaging brands Admiral Red and his USR followers as "terrorists" but the two episodes allow little time to explore his real motivations. There are hints that he is working towards an important goal, but whether he sees himself as a Captain Nemo fighting against the aggressive surface world, or as a Captain Planet out to cleanse the oceans of human interference, is unclear.

If you have been drawn to this series by the promise of realistic submarine battles then you may wish to think again.

The story is about a terrorist group called USR starts attacking sea faring ships across the globe and a joint navy has to stop them, but when the coalition gets beat its up to the 707(Japan's Ship) to defeat them.

The english Dub is good but some voices sound kinda off mainly the females, the video quality and animation is excellent with some really good cg underwater combat. The ships and subs themselves are well detailed and futuristic looking but everything looks too high tech, not that it tells you when it's based. The music is excellent pacing the 2 Part OVA really well both in and outside of naval combat having some beautiful piano music.

It seems more like the start of something great but the company only got to release two ova episodes in 2003-04 so don't expect another release, ever!

Extras:
Submarine 707 Revolution (The OVA)
The Art of Anime
Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex Series 2
Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence
