Storyline

Ten years after the end of World War II; anti-terror policeman Fuse gets suspended from service after the suicide by self-detonation of a young terrorist girl during an operation, as he failed to shoot her in time.

Both get dragged into the rivalries between the administration of the police and the counter terrorism commando unit 'Jin Roh' (human wolves). Written by Moritz Muehlenhoff <jmm@inutil.org>

Beautiful, ...but it's a long trip
13 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

After seeing this in the stores for a couple months and wondering if it was worth the $$$ i came to find out a friend of mine had bought it so he invited me over to check it out. Man am i ever glad he did because i would have been disappointed had i dropped the cash for it!!!

Jin-Roh is by no means a bad movie in fact it's quite good IF you have the patience it requires. After the opening riot scene things slow down ALOT. It's like 3/4 of the movie is spent building the movie up but it never really delivers in the end. I remember thinking "all that time for THIS ending?!"

As far as the animation, it is top notch. There is definetly an epic feel at work. Sound is also superb.

I think if maybe there had been a bit more action in the middle of this show it would have gone a long way in making this a bit more interesting.

Killer start and then a long middle and finally a pretty unsatisfying ending added up to something i wasn't thrilled about seeing save maybe for the art it'self.

I am pleased to see anime producing more mature adult titles. I am sick of mechs, dbz, and f#*king tentacles. For a welcome change from the above mentioned crap check Jin-Roh out(hey this review was just my opinion, you may love it) or better yet go pick up the far superior Perfect Blue
