Future war 198x out of VHS in Australia
4 March 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This anime is ahead of its time.

It was cutting edge animation and controversial when it first came out in 1982.

The anime is inspired by General Hackett's book The Third World War and its depiction of war is as realistic as anime can get.

(note: for war enthusiasts, the huge tank battles on the North German plains are shown here and are quite good).

Anyways, it came out from Wizard Video in Australia in the 80s(its in PAL) and its in English albeit not a full translation but an English narration.

They also cut several scenes from it(I saw the original Japanese version) but its still quite good.

Forgot to add:

The original Japanese version is 125 minutes long

The German version is 115 minutes long

The English version(from Wizard video, narration instead of dialogue, added soundtrack from Tangerine Dream, Asia(Only Time Will Tell & Wildest Dreams) & Rush(Witch Hunt). The added soundtrack worked quite well with the Witch Hunt music really complementing the massive tank battle on the North German Plain and the ending music of Only Time Will Tell(which made me get more Asia music btw)) is 90 minutes long.
