Gunparade March

 GUNM   (ADV Manga, 2004-2005)

™ and © 2002 Hiroyuki Sanadura

Based on a video game for the Sony PlayStation, Gunparade March takes place in a world where an alien invasion interrupted World War II. After fifty years of waging a losing battle against the aliens and mounting casualties, Japan is forced to enlist teenagers into its military. The book is like a light version of Saving Private Ryan, taking a “war is hell” look at the lives of one group of young soldiers. While the innocence of the characters may be more representative of teenagers who have not lived through the effects of a fifty–year war, gritty battle scenes do give a sense of the confusion and chaos soldiers might experience during combat.
