this animation's artist is japanese whose name is Reiji Matsumoto.
I just paste english texture to it.
most of japanese doesn't know this movie.
he is well known as of Galaxy express 999.
and he had made two more of this war movies.
one is about luftwaffe Ta152 and others is about

the name of these series are called "the cockpit"
I'll make english translation of luftwaffe's one
if I have a time.

matsumoto's work was easily recognizable.. seeing that he was also the creator of the captain harlock series. allthough i watched it when i was much younger, i never understood teh connection of the 109's REVI sight that made it so important to be carried from genreation to generation of the "harlock" name, and to be used on teh space battleship ...

matsumotos apprentice was kaoru shintani. famous artist of "AREA-88" fame, and "pascal city"

Reiji Matsumoto's The Cockpit was/is an animation with about 5 short stories from WW2. The Luftwaffe one is about a war weary experten in 1945 who is tasked with escorting a captured B-17 with a strange cargo.

The animation style is a little old now but still very much worth tracking down (as you can see). Its bee available in the west for some time.

He also used to do a series of war manga too. I've only seen one but it was very good. It was about a lone IJN pilot who was stranded on a tiny atoll way behind the enemy lines. He had this old F1M2 floatplane and would sally out attack supply ships and the like.

Thank you for the interesting movie clip. I grew up in Japan and remember watching Reiji Matsumoto's anime in my childhood. Most westerners are not aware of sad stories behind Kamikaze attacks, and this clip might provide a glimpse of it.

My father was a 12 years old junior highschool boy at the end of the WW2. He and his classmates were all in forced labor at a factory to manufacture mini submarines for suicide attacks. The kids were forced to work 12 hours every day, with little food to eat. They were all starving. If the school boys fail to build the submarine without water leaks, they were to face punishment. But if they do succeed in manufacturing leak-free submarines, the consequence was even worse. Young IJN officers (who themselves were university age young men, who were forced to "volunteer" for Kamikaze attacks) were waiting for the sub, to die. The whole experience was so painful that my father told me about it only once. When the bomber pilots in this anime joked about the engine failure, by saying that girls manufactuered their ride, I remembered the story of my father.

One of my very old uncles was also an IJA Kamikaze pilot, who survived the war because his suicide mission was scheduled to commence at the end of August 1945; Japan surrendered a few weeks earlier. He was a reserved, quiet man who NEVER talked about his war experience before his death several years ago. We never asked him about his experience, either.

Are the original anime movie available for purchase, either in DVD and/or download? Obviously I understand Japanese and am interested in purchasing a copy.

You have to love the script in this short....all very poignant. The Ohka pilot so prepared to die he's willing to launch early to save the Betty crew, yet the old chief of the 1st bomber saving him.......The guilt of the Ohka pilot as of the mission he's one of the few to survive, and yet another wise old Bomber chief stating the value of "1 more day lived".

The cold reality of who is to live or die stated not to harm but simply matter of fact....and then more so the "apologizing" of the escort pilots for not getting him there but swearing "no matter what" they will the next day.......Naturally the Ohka pilot sacrificing, and you see both sides loss and note the drive and urgent need of each to do what they must.....Yet also are reminded of the waste in what "could have been if they lived".

The best part though the final flight......The Betty crew laughing about their lousy plane, the N1K1 escort refusing to turn back at the point of no return willing to sacrifice themselves for the 1 to be able to do his job. Then naturally the zero pilot from the escort before fulfilling his promise with his life, and the Betty crew going down laughing refusing to "let down" the ohka pilot.

The Irony of the Ohka pilot's desire to be an astronaut, and more so the crew member on the carrier looking just like him stating "all people are the same". Lastly it a waste as the A-Bomb had been dropped moments before. In the end it said often enough, every one/thing crazy due to the times.

In the end it showing none of it fanatical like some suicide bomber of today.......Simply the will to sacrifice yourself to save others from both sides....All the apologizing, and guilt of letting others down....Really very touching and insightful on many levels.

Matsumoto deliberately draws the enlisted men in different style to officers to emphasise the class distinctions IIRC.

On the subject of people being forced to pilot suicide submarines: I was lucky to recently find a copy of The Kaiten Weapon by former Kaiten pilot Yukita Yotoka. He said he (and his fellow kamikazes) volunteered straight out of flight school. He also says that they were not forced to do so and many who were only sons etc. were knocked back. He also says that Kaiten production never was able to match the number of volunteers and there was never a need to press gang anyone into joining the corps.

It takes time to draw a character for animation. They try to cut back on some details to draw them faster so they can focus on the more promement scenes, the aerial battle for example.

Just requoting for emphasis. The deliberate stylisation of the enlisted crewmen is not done as a budget cut. Also, Matsumoto-san gave the Ohka pilot a ugly scar to reinforce the fact that the man is a combat veteran, not a raw recruit. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I've got a VHS copy (dubbed in English), and it's available at Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00000JQV2/qid=1147092...eo&v=glance&n=404272 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00000JQV2/qid=1147092218/sr=1-1/ref=sr_1_1/102-9610786-5557762?s=video&v=glance&n=404272)

The tape includes the Ta 152 story and another story about a Japanese motorcycle crew.

Hidekishi, domo arigato. Your English is very good, and I appreciate the subtitles to the original Japanese. My copy is VHS, so I only have the English speech.

LEBillfish, yes the material is very classic Japanese anime (lone warrior carrying out his duty against impossible odds... 'the nobility of defeat'), and the Japanese morality is familiar, too. We would fly training missions with the JASDF (Japanese Air Self-Defence Force) while I was stationed at Misawa, and the mood (minus the suicidal element, of course) is familiar. The JASDF pilots were swaggering fighter pilots (like us, though a little less juvenile), yet took their duty to their country and each other very seriously (also like us). They'd go over each videotape of the training flight in great detail (usually outlasting us), looking for mistakes to avoid next time.

Hidekichi, sorry to bother you once again, but have you any idea where i can find a recording of the Kamikaze pilots song. I watched a documentary on the BBC recently and at the end, the music they played was a song the pilots used to sing. It was more moving than the documentary, which, incidentaly was called Kamikaze.

Hideki is talking about me,
I have to thank J_Anonymous for giving me the link otherwise I wouldn´t have found you fellows. I enjoy every minute flying with you fellows and also the great help in making it possible for me to fly online. Since then dvd´s have been going back and forth per mail, and has reawakened my interest in Japan which I have had for many years.
There are many simularities between Japan and Germany when it comes to WWII. Through this sim playing online, and this forum, being able to exchange thoughts with people from around the world, one can only hope that people will find better ways to settle their differances than by means of war.
P.S.

Hi J_Anonymous,
yes it is that first step that takes the most courage, as one is always scared to make a fool of oneself. But I don´t regret taking that step as it has opened the door to a bunch of very nice people that I would not have met otherwise. Shyness can be a very big stumblingblock! As to internationality yes that can be only to an advantage for all, as not in every country are the same amount of information on certain topics available as in others so that it can only be of help to have people here from various countries, as they just might have that information, you have been looking for, for ages but just could not find.

Brilliant.

For those of you who want to download it or have complained about long-download times, be advised that windows saves a copy of it automatically once you watch it in the following directory:

C:/Documents and Settings/"User"/Local Settings/Temporary Internet Files.

In my case the file is called "Obj016" (Windows Media Audio/Video File) and is a total of 40,180kb in size.

Most Video you watch on the internet is stored there for a while (Until you clean/delete).

Cut and paste it somewhere else to watch it again. DO NOT try to run it from the "Temp Internet Files" directory.

I read a book a month or so ago by James Bradley called Fly Boys (click here for details (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0316105848/104-0102602-2831158?v=glance&n=283155)) that is nominally about raids on Chi-Chi Jima including that of George Bush Sr., but is more broadly about the peculiar notions of duty and the ethos of the 'spirit warrior' that were prevailing in the Japanese armed forces at that time. The result seems to have been a brutal and self-destructive fatalism that is at odds with the samurai way of war.

It's an interesting if imperfect book.

Ah no prob, after DAP is installed. Right click on the link and select "download with DAP" hopefully that should do it. I'm not at my regular PC at the moment but I can look into it further when I get home tonight if that dosent work for you. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Hey thanks for the tip even if I didn't ask for help. DAP is great why did I not use it before ... finally got the whole film.

It's really nice to see such open minded posts vs. the usual here.....Funny how a "cartoon" can help some see things in a different perspective or way. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
