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.

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 read more

Given an 8 because it was great!

vocals were japanese

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).
