Based on a story by Otomo (Katsuhiro), it's about a ragtag group of hard-talkin', power suit-wearin' men tasked with disarming automatic tanks in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo.

In the time of post apocalypse in Tokyo an advance warfare is going on. It's between human and advanced automatic tank. It's so much advanced that, there is no trees to seen neither well structured buildings. All has been destroyed by the apocalypse created by the man. It is the fourth short from the animation movie short peace. It shows future earth, if humans don't try to end the present consequences.

Niki yo Saraba or A farewell to Arms starts with four characters Gimlet, Marl, Gin and Junki. These four are selected for the scouting operation. All the modern armored suits are prepared, still no match ...

Buki yo Saraba was short, so I will keep my review short as well. Let me start with the positives :

+ Outstanding animation on the action scenes

+ great graphics, even in the desert setting

+very well done CGI which flow perfectly

+ original weapon design / mech design / suit design

Given an 8 because it was great!

vocals were japanese
english subtitles

Last of the part package of anime Short Peace

By far the most assuming of them all! Sure, there was no witty song used unless you consider the radio in the intro. Which was odd seeing how it was an american (english) song.

You have your brotherhood of men fighting for a cause(stupid maybe but a cause). You have your exchange of blows. You have your surprises. There is some comedy some a bit 'dry'(inside joke).
