Description: The future.

The people that migrated to an alternate dimensional space, seeking a new world to live in, started an armed rebellion in order to declare independence from Earth. Thus, multi-dimensional war broke out with the United Army of Earth. The battlefronts spread, and the fight grew long.

In their desire to break the deadlock, the United Army of Earth decided to launch a large-scale offensive, deploying to the front line vast amounts of "Assault Girls" -- new arms that would render all previous weaponry ineffective.

Piloted by outcasts and criminals, the members of the The 13th Independent Assault Girl Hunting Platoon -- dubbed "The Hyena Platoon" -- are tasked with hunting down and destroying rogue Assault Girl pilots, who have succumbed to the corruption that eventually befalls all pilots.

Started as a oneshot in "A City of Honests and Heretics."

Thank you Habanero Scans

Wow, it's like Matsumoto Jiro dipped his pen in the darkest and ugliest ink found in the humanities colon and made art with it.

Pretty good.

I'd say it's about Japan's (and men in general) idealization and sexualization of young girls. It's about failed masculinity that have really closed the options for a lot of men (regardless of what feminists claim lol), about self hatred and the projection of ones dreams unto an idealized innocence. I guess it's also a continuation of the ideas and questions in Ghost in the Shell about identity and essence. Obviously this on top of Matsumoto's love for young girls in sailor uniforms doing batshit crazy obscene stuff.

 

I was asking for the in-world explanation.

 

Of course I know what JKs represent in Japan : youth, spring of life, the awakening to sexuality, the lack of worries about the future, etc.

 

Also, Giant Robots.

 

But the reason of the outer appearance of these dimensional weapons, which The Prophet provides (?) is still unexplained in-world.

But... why JKs? Because The Prophet decided so?

So this manga is basically Apocalypse Now?

Hey, this is really good in its WTF way.

Am I really the only one who relates to this story 2000%? It's like Matsumoto-san is writing out my life story. Seriously what is wrong with you people ;)

Fuck yeah. This shit is the best. Thanks elemhunter and laika <3

This is incredible. I love the Nausicaä references.

Woah. This is way more interesting than I thought it'd be. Followed.

That description sounds wrong in so many ways... I'm afraid to even ask where the cockpit is...

 

Popular anime tells us it's either in the head, or the chest.
