Jin-Roh : Will our reality become that too ?

Many many years back, i’ve watched Jin-Roh on tv. I wasn’t 24 then so many things did not make sense other than this anime was for adults and fucking awesome. I remember thinking how awesome it was and i went to school the next to talk to my friends about and turns out no one was as interested as i was. 😦 Fast forward to 2012, i watched it again and my mind was blown away, again. With #occupy and crazy government running the world , this anime is a scary reminder to anyone that our world may become like that. Democracy becomes outlawed like communist was many years back(still is today i think?). And of course in this anime, those that believes in democratic gets labelled as terrorist. Sounds familiarly like what is happening in our world right?

Imagine the day where police or the army have suits like they did in Jin-Roh. It is not skynet we should fear, we should fear the humans with greedy intentions. Jin-Roh also is a very symbolic anime. The whole wolf analogy and the little red riding hood fairytale as well. gives this anime many excellent things to think about. Speaking of wolf analogy, a recent anime had that too, however Ben-to is a stupid (enjoyable) comedy but you can see that either the japanese loves wolf or everyone on earth knows some wolf-based story ? Oh wait, i don’t know if kids these days knows but i was brought up with stories like “little red riding hood” and many other classics.

Using women and children seems to be the common tactic of terrorist groups. But is it really? I’m pretty sure , not every women and children were forced at gun-point to join the “terrorist”. But again it does gives you things to ponder about. Whether or not will it be really underhand to use women and children, i personally think that is pretty normal. Even charity groups uses children as a selling point, “Think of the starving children!”, rings a bell eh? Agree or disagree is entirely up to you. This isn’t a philosophy blog 😛

Jin-Roh isn’t really your off-the-mill fast pace action anime despite the awesome suit design. Rather i find the pacing of Ji-Roh to be on the slow side. But i like it that way. Absorbing the atmosphere of this anime and generally trying to understand what the mind fucks the director is attempting to give is awesome.

I think this is a great anime to watch and if you haven’t watched this before, i urge you to do so. And grab some popcorn or chips while you’re at it. You will be enjoying it!
