Note on Sepia Tone

You may notice some of the screens are sepia toned. That's not because I ripped them from a bootleg copy, I have the actual DVD. After the opening shootout, the movie goes into a sepia-tone for some weird reason. It's an art choice on the director's part. -protoAuthor

Connection to Jin-Roh

This movie is in the same Saga of Mamoru Oshii Kerberos movies that Jin-Roh is, along with Stray Dog. Can someone who knows what they are doing connect them? -protoAuthor


weird, weird and just plain weird. Like the Broomhandle though. --Jcordell 04:27, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Still weird, but the page has really come along. Looks good though it looks like an odd movie. --Jcordell 19:52, 29 October 2010 (UTC)

"Odd" isn't the half of it. Think more along the lines of "Frickin' Bizarre". Don't get me wrong, it's a really good movie, it's just indescribably bizarre.--PistolJunkie 02:56, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
This was the first page I ever netflixed based SOLELY on its IMFDb page. It was definitely not what I expected. --funkychinaman 04:22, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
I hope you've at least seen Jin-Roh or Stray Dog as well. Otherwise, this movie makes absolutely no sense.--PistolJunkie 04:28, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
Oh, so it's supposed to make sense? And not just weird for weird's sake? I went with this one because it was made first. (And the Stray Dog page didn't exist yet.) --funkychinaman 04:47, 30 October 2010 (UTC)
It really does tell you everything that happens in that part of the story, it just doesn't give it to you straight. English audiences are at a disadvantage because we don't have all of the comics/radio dramas here, just a few comics and the movies. It also doesn't help that Oshii, as good as his films are, is pretentious as hell.--PistolJunkie 06:54, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

how can anyone tell what this is?


An Uzi is seen in the aftermath of the opening shootout.

To be fair, there are few guns with that profile and upon the first glance, I immediately thought "Uzi". Also being a Japanese movie I doubt it is anything else. Also this movie is only using fake Japanese blow back weapons. NONE of them are real guns. So I lean towards any gun type that has been made by MGC (which makes the majority of the cap firing blow back weapons in Japan). So any of the LIVE firing more obscure guns in the world that it may be, would not be available as a non gun in japan, thus it is probably an Uzi. MoviePropMaster2008 23:06, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
I'll take your word for it and put it back up. I also posted a notice at the top of the page as well. --AdAstra2009 23:15, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Missing Weapons

Added the M1911 and M1928 missing from the article.--PistolJunkie 21:27, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
