Saishuu Heiki Kanojo is a very tragic and impressive work. It seems that I can’t find the right words to describe my feelings about it adequately (I tried for a far too long time now). However it is definitely worth to watch. But be warned, it is really depressing at times. Here is (at least) a short description I wrote some time ago:
Japan is at war, but in Hokkaido life is relative peaceful. Shuuji and Chise, a frail and shy girl, are third year students in Hokkaido and Chise just confessed her love to Shuuji. He gave her a positive response although he isn’t really sure himself. One day, while in Sapporo, Shuuji experiences a air raid on the city. However, the enemy bombers get erased by a small, but very mobile aircraft. Much to Shuujis surprise it turns out that this aircraft is Chise, somehow modified to be the ultimate weapon, but still the vulnerable girl he knew.
A very tragic story centred around the relationship between Shuuji and Chise and the people they know while the world they live in slowly falls apart.
