Antagony & Ecstasy

A trilogy of anime aimed more at adults than kids. From slow and thoughtful to hilarious to pointedly satiric. Anime at its best.

Excellent first segment, forgetable second, and perfect third. The last one is probably the most sharp and accurate commentary anyone has ever made about war since George Orwell.
