Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade ★★

a sheep in wolves clothing

yeah sure, the art is richly detailed and the animation is gorgeous and the atmosphere is drenched in melancholy but idk, throw this onto the pile of "am I dumb or is the plot really that convoluted and fake deep?" I was pretty into it at first but it lost me so fucking quickly. I feel like my brain was on autopilot for the last 80 minutes of this, and I wasn't even distracted by anything else. who are these characters? why do I care about their plights? what the fuck is going on? could the little red riding hood allegory feel any more heavy handed? I guess oshii and I just don't really jive. damn shame because those armored suits do look really dope
