This review is from: First Squad [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Fist Squad is a short film. Too short really. It's actually a Russian anime produced in Japan. The wierd thing with this release is that there is no Japanese audio track. You have English and Russian.
The movie is set in world war 2 but is more supernatural than a war film. The main protagonist Ruslanova Nadya is suthering from memory loss after an explosion. Throughout the anime she regains her memory and learns the truth about her comrades. I don't want to give away the plot so I'll leave it at that.
The bluray looks stunning and the artwork is really cool. You can really get a sense of how cold it is in Russia by watching this.
The main problem with this anime is it has zero replay value and is too short. The ending is rather sudden too and leaves allot of questions.
Overall, I'd recommend this anime to someone who is looking for something different to the standard affair.
