Synopsis:

War is hell for all that are involved. Swordsmen battle tanks, tanks battle snipers, snipers battle swordsmen - and many casualties take place. In the midst of the gunfights and the violence, lovers embrace and people contemplate while the body and artillery count piles up; thus is the reality of war.

Higan

Higan
  • OVA (1 ep x 8 min)
  • 2002

In the dark forest, a battle is raging between viciously piloted armored tanks, and manned robotic machines whose pilots won't go down without a fight. For a handful of men, surviving the night, the gunfire and the explosions is the only thing that matters. The enemies are tough and the price of failure is death. With no backup and nowhere to run, will anyone make it out alive?

Higan and First Squad are two random looks at a military battlefield. Both are fairly throwaway, and conveniently both are also from Studio 4C. If you liked the light random military aspect of one, you'd enjoy the other (though Higan has no music, while First Squad is a Russian rap music video).

Aside from the fact that both come from Studio 4C, Higan and First Squad are both animated shorts that focus on the brutality of war. If one piqued your interest, then try the other.

Alien Defender Geo-Armor: Kishin Corps

Alien Defender Geo-Armor: Kishin Corps

Life isn't easy for Taishi; in the midst of World War 2, his parents have just been killed at the hands of the ruthless Kanto Army – but unfortunately for him that’s the least of his concerns: a sudden alien attack is threatening the entire world! Little does Taishi know that his father, Professor Tokamura, has entrusted him with a control system for a Geo-Armor Robot – the only weapon capable of fighting off the invaders. However, there are those who would use the Geo-Armor to win the war – rather than defend against the alien attack – and they will stop at nothing to obtain it...

Kishin Corps and First Squad have mainly one thing in common, both of them mess with WWII (for example they add some mechas here and there). If First Squad was too short for you, then you could check out Kishin Corps, on the other hand if you found KC lacking quality, then you should chcek FS.

  • 2002

Legend tells of a lone swordsman who lives in the Demon's Castle, the ruins near the Black Forest. This mysterious stranger only accepts rare books for his services, books from the ancient past. Comedy tells the story of a young girl who desperately wishes for her family and village to be saved from the coming English soldiers' wrath, and is willing to trade a precious book in exchange for the deed. With only her legs beneath her, she runs towards the Black Forest, hoping to get there in time...

First Squad is a music video and Comedy is a short, however, they are both inventive (though absurd) historical fantasies. Just as Comedy incongruously gives us swordsmen and knights in the Irish War of Independence, First Squad gives us katanas and - more, similarly-designed knights - in World War II's Russian Front. Both of these also feature Studio 4C's stylish animation work.
