Kidou Ryodan Hachifukujin
By: Fukushima Satoshi
Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Mecha
Serialized In: Comic Beam
Follows new recruits in the army of Japan, in a war torn future. An eccentric girl, a pacifistic guy, an advanced suit of armor impervious to all weapons figure in a story about war, violence, and militaristic subservience.
Great second volume, finally climaxing in some action. The tension on the verge of battle was intense. I love that the first confrontation with the enemy didn't start with explosions, instead the Fujukin were waiting - holding position while they waited for the rail guns to come.
