Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade
JIN-ROH's setting is Tokyo-not the Tokyo of the future, but of an alternate past. In the bizarre, ironic tradition of Philip K. Dick's THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE, JIN-ROH presents a Japan that lost a different Second World War-not to America, but to Nazi Germany. Now, more than ten years after the defeat, the occupation troops have left, but their legacy is JIN-ROH's twilight-zone city where the domestic terrorism of "The Sect" plays out in everyday bombings and street battles against the counter terrorist Capital Police-and their elite armored, helmeted, and red-goggled Special Unit. Rated No Rating .
