Description
Years after the country defeat and occupation period, Japan is still recovering. Although they are on the road back to mass industrialization and prosperity, strong handed economic and political policies have turned many areas into dilapidated slums. Anarchists and anti-government student protesters have taken up arms, stirring up violent social revolution riots. In order to combat this growing threat, the Japanese government has nationalized a division of the police, creating the Capital Police Organization (CAPO). The CAPO consists of hard-trained panzer troopers carrying heavy firearms and wearing special armor suits called Protect Gear, this specialized unit is feared by anti-government groups, criminals and civilians alike.

Note: Loosely adapted into the anime movie Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade in 1999 which is also written by Mamoru Oshii.

The first part of the mythos is a radio play none of us heard and only this manga´s loose adaptation Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade (9/10) is known outside of japan which is unfortunate as anyone should have time for Mamoru Oshii´s writing. His The Red Spectacles form 1987 ties in here and is surprisingly a black comedy and the other life action movies are not worth a word. This completely shonen demographic inappropriate short as a very dark, impersonal and downright nihilistic tale of a world that Orwell himself could have come up with.
Especially the plane high jacking plot in this episodic procedural is even more relevant today and the as of now untranslated tales were all good too. The art is realistic and the definition of "un-flashy".
I would have liked a longer volume count and more of a real narrative but sequels exist and need a translation too as i can´t even find raws. Oshii´s other 80s brainchild Kidou Keisatsu Patlabor is a nice counter program and should further be unleashed on the masses and RideBack turns into a modern version of the themes found here and it is only fully translated in the way shorter anime form as of now. I reviewed both btw.
