    10 years have passed since war changed the face of Japan, a Japan which now burns with the fire of civil unrest. Fueled by rampant crime and poverty, a well armed anti-government group has risen amongst the people, with the intent of topping the government through its terrorist plots. To combat this group, an elite group of heavily-armored soldiers was formed, trained like dogs, these men were to combat the growing unrest with extreme and severe prejudice; these men were the Capital Police. However, when Constable Fuse, a member of the Capital Police hesitates to kill a young courier, he is forced to face his own humanity and ultimately decide - is it better to live as a chained dog? Or a free man?

    I love this movie! I've got a 3-disc special edition of this with a 12 page booklet - it was released by Bandai Entertainment on Region 1 - is this the first time its available on Region 2?

    It was released here back in 2007, but I guess it must have been a low key release, or at least it only really registered on my radar earlier this year.
