ANN wrote:The Twitch film news website has begun streaming the 93-second official trailer for Molot Entertainment and Studio 4Â°C's First Squad project. The story is set during the opening days of World War II on the Eastern Front. A group of Soviet teenagers with extraordinary abilities have been drafted into a special unit to fight the invading German army. Opposing them is a Schutzstaffel (SS) officer who is attempting to raise from the dead an army of crusaders from the 12th-century Order of the Sacred Cross and enlist them in the Nazi cause.
Russian artists Misha Sprits and Aljosha Klimov created First Squad, and Yoshiharu Ashino (Tweeny Witches) is directing the project in Japan at Studio 4Â°C. Hirofumi Nakata designed the characters after working on last year's Batman: Gotham Knight anthology video. Studio 4Â°C head Eiko Tanaka (The Animatrix, Tekkonkinkreet) is producing the project with Sprits and Klimov. The trailer features the music of DJ Krush.

The story takes place in a world after death. Angels are fighting for the concluded fate and future.
Yuri (nickname: Yurippe, character design) is the leader of "Shinda Sekai Sensen (SSS, World after death Front) and rebels against the god, who destined her to have an unreasonable life. Tenshi (Angel, character design) is the chairperson of the student council of the world after death and battles against SSS members.
SSS members are armed with guns (Yurippe uses M92F BRIGADIER) and the angles use supernatural power.
The English subtitle of the manga is "The Legend of Koizumi" â€” a reference to the manga's main character, who is a fictionalized version of Japan's 89th prime minister, Junichirō Koizumi. In this political parody, Koizumi plays a special form of "mahjong diplomacy" against foreign adversaries such as George W. Bush, Kim Jong-il, Vladimir Putin, Margaret Thatcher, and others.

Is it god or a wolf? Fear and mysteries intermingle over the hidden rule of an old town. In 1983, the residents of Jyouga were involved in a repetitive nightmare. A chain of ten events will lead us to the truth...
