Cat Shit One has always been awesomeness.

ETA: The original series was set in Vietnam, with the VC being cats.

The funny thing is that they have a whole sub-sub-culture of Otaku (rough translation: Obsessed geek) who are gun nuts. Masamune Shirow (my favorite artist, be careful googling him, he does some racy stuff) is a well known example of that trend.

The original Cat Shit One was a series of 'manga' (basically, graphic novels) from the late-'90s.

Americans were rabbits, the Vietnamese were cats, etc. Apart from being animals, the weapons, equipment and violence were portrayed VERY realistically. The story itself is very dark.

It's a great series, and was translated for an English-speaking audience as "Apocalypse Meow" - silly, but the series is still good and worth a read.

Volumes 2 and 3 can generally be found pretty easily for close to their original retail price. Volume 1 for some reason is rather rare - and tends to fetch high prices when you can find it.

Did you ever see the movie "The Edge" (Grizzly chasing Anthony Hopkins & Co. through the Alaskan wilderness)? Don't know if this is what the Japanese had in mind, and I don't know how true this is, but there's a scene in "The Edge" involving an Indian canoe paddle that has a painting of a panther on one side and a rabbit smoking a pipe on the other side. Supposedly it's based on an old Indian legend (forget which tribe). Basically, the rabbit is smoking a pipe because he's unafraid. He's unafraid because he's smarter than the panther. I was a little "WTF?" when I saw the US represented by bunnies, but then I thought of that legend and was cool with it. Like I said, might not be what the Japanese had in mind, but it's what came to my mind when I watched the trailer.

The modern day Japanese making a movie about fighting a war is like the French declaring what a proud and rich heritage of winning wars they have.
