The Cockpit tells three different tales from the second world war, bound together by the madness of war --and airplanes. In the the first tale, a German pilot is forced to choose between his duty and his soul; the second is a tragic tale of a Japanese kamikaze pilot who welcomes death; and finally, the third tale revolves around two Japanese ground troopers in the Philippines who are racing towards an airbase that might already be under enemy control.
This OVA is good but not without flaws. All the stories follow the same formula: first, they engage you with some cool action, then they drag on for almost 15 minutes of irrelevant drama that supposedly develops the characters, and finally, there are barely 5 minutes of good action and animated scenes. In my opinion, the overall story would definitely improve if each story was limited to 12 minutes. The animation is good, especially the action scenes, and the characters all seem alike, just with different shades. All in all, I would recommend this if you like WWII stories, but be aware of the significant amount of useless drama.
