Strike witches the movie

Objectionable content: moderate – blood, violence, mature themes

 

Picking up where the second season of strike witches left off, yoshika miyafuji and major sakamoto have both returned to fuso with no magic to go back to their lives, sakamoto as a military teacher and miyafuji as a student of medacine so she can become a doctor of normal means not magic. After a meeting with a new fusio witch by the name of shizuka hattori and the chance to study medicine at the greatest school in Europe, miyafuji goes with hattori as her bodyguard.

Once in Europe after many clashes between miyafuji’s personality and hattories military strictness they meet up with some of the old 501st bringing back memories and happiness, but on the way to the school miyafuji and hattori go awry to help a village and encounter a new kind of neuroi, subterranean ones.

Basially I really like how this one pick up where the second season leaves off, especially since the 501st reforms( again) to battle the newest neuroi threat. For a full length movie it is very well done and the perfect hinge to start the third season that is obviously soon to come!

Vexille

Themes:  mecha, military, politics, guns, wepons

Objectionable content: significant-  significant violence, blood and gore and mature themes

This would make a very good storyline for a science fiction first person shooter ( or third person shooter).

Human technology has progressed to such an extent that cybernetics, robotics and computerized intelligences are the norm, and it could be used to create human androids that would be impossible to distinguish from normal humans. To stop this the united nations makes the creation of human android and cybernetics illegal, japan however is adamantly against this and fights these new rules fiercely. After many repeated attempts japan does the unthinkable and leaves the UN, taking up a policy of international isolation witch is realized though advanced technology that stops them from being seen or heard of. After ten years of international isolation Japanese international activity of an unknown actions is discovered and it is decided that the American  special forces group known as sword will investigate.

Now that Ive given you the introduction lets actually talk about what it means.

Vexille has a lot of action in it, mainly with mechanized armored suits ( or mad max style junk cars) with a few simple chase scenes in foot. The reason for this is that all of japan is nonexistent and the only habitat for “people” is a slums with few hiding spots, and although this makes some scenes oddly boring they still hold your attention throughout. The action itself is very heavy having much violence and loss of life on quite a few fronts and it luckily does not draw away from the story, witch is the main point here. The story itself is actually a rather interesting one that could in the next  200+ years come true in all honesty, lets just hope it does not.
