Area 88

Show Summary

Area 88 follows Japanese photojournalist Makoto Shinjou (Shinichirou Miki) as he chases tales of a mercenary air force to the fictional middle-eastern nation of Asran. There, he meets pilot Shin Kazama (Takahito Koyasu), the only Japanese national fighting for the mercenary force. Kazama is deeply troubled by his involvement in the Asranian conflict, and only flies for the mercenary company because his former best friend tricked him into signing a contract. Though Kazama longs to return to Japan to be with his fianc''e, he must serve out his contract or face capture and execution as a deserter. When he learns that there is an option to buy out the remainder of his service by earning $1.5 million, Kazama's sole goal becomes obtaining enough money to leave the mercenary force. As Kazama works to earn his way back home, he and his fellow pilots struggle with the consequences of warfare. The mercenaries confront survivor's guilt, civilian casualties, and their own mortality in this emotionally satisfying, action-packed animation series.moreless
