First Squad Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Set during the opening days of World War II on the Eastern Front. Its main cast is a group of Soviet teenagers with extraordinary abilities; the teenagers have been drafted to form a special unit to fight the invading German army. They are opposed by a Schutzstaffel (SS) officer who is attempting to raise from the dead a supernatural army of crusaders from the 12th-century Order of the Sacred Cross and enlist them in the Nazi cause.

Review: We've seen a lot of anime here at the Legion, but none quite so unique as First Squad!  This unusual anime is centered around a group of superpowered teens during WWII Russia.    The enemy?  The Nazi SS, who just so happen to be raising the dead.  Does it get cooler than this?  Hell no!  The animation is great and the story is phenominal. We cannot recommend this one enough for anime and non-anime fans alike!

Interest Range: Anime
