Abenobashi Mahou Shotengai - 11: Resolution!!

Title:Abenobashi Mahou Shotengai
Episode:11: Resolution!!
In this parody of war movies, Sasshi finds himself at the "Abenobashi Battlefield Shopping Arcade", where a battle is raging between the Turtle Bath Army and the Pelican Army. Though nothing more than a lowly messenger, he nevertheless repeatedly distinguishes himself (completely by accident), leading to promotions and increasing responsibility.
One time military history geeks like myself may recognize Tiger tanks, Val dive bombers, Grumman Hellcats, Huey helicopters, plus Japanese, French, German and British uniforms. Though fairly amusing, I didn't notice any particularly convincing anti-war message. Surely the funniest moment must have been when a certain USO performer steps off a helicopter before an audience of soldiers (this character hasn't gotten enough use in the series!).
