Written and directed by Hajime Takoti (mecha designer on the Gundam series) and based off a manga by Katsuhiro Otomo, it's the tale of four men hunting down robots in an apocalyptic Tokyo. Farewell To Weapons is another heart-stopping addition to Short Peace. The moment when they spot a robot, the men quickly assume their positions and start off an epic battle of life or death with every shot building up to an impactful moment that hits you right in the face and boy, did I ever love the living crap out of this. I also enjoyed the comedy banter between the 4 men that had a real feel of comradery and all of them were likable people. It also ends on a more comedic tone but it didn't bother me that much cause I had so much fun with this short that I couldn't care less if it ended sad or comedic. read more
Two short pieces about soldiers at war. Buki yo Saraba features great animation, high tech war, and gives you a feeling that there is are some ideas and thoughts that people who made it were trying to give you, the viewer. Cat Shit One is more of a mindless action variety, CGI animated, featuring plushies with guns. Buki yo Saraba looks like it deals with some kind of a post apocalyptic civil war, while Cat Shit One looks more like the type of war western soldiers were experiencing at Middle East in recent years.
The events of both anime happen in a desolate landscape, and focus on a group of soldiers who are currently on a dangerous mission. Both anime provide a unique, yet fairly realistic, depiction of war, creating a similar mood and atmosphere of tension.
Both are quite short, and pretty fast-paced.
The final fight of "Expelled from Paradise" made me think of "Buki yo Saraba". In both anime, the events happen in deserted and almost ruined cities, and focus on a group of power suit-wearing individuals who are sent to fulfill a dangerous mission. Both create an overall similar mood and atmosphere.
"A Farewell to Arms" / "Buki yo Saraba" and "Halo Legends" each depict futuristic warfare in unique perspectives where elite soldiers are sent to remote locations to deal with emergency militarised situations.
