It’s a fantastic underdog story filled with likeable, complex characters and plenty of heart; highlighting what happens when ordinary people are called to fulfil their duty for a greater good. The realities of war are not sugarcoated throughout this narrative — peaceful towns go up in flames and beloved characters die in the line of duty — but it’s all undercut by an undeniable sense of hope that keeps you rooting for this small squad. What’s more is that there’s plenty of fun anime humour to keep things lighthearted, such as the introduction of a winged pig named Hans who becomes the mascot of the squad.
