Somewhere, on an isolated planet, 15 races battle for the ultimate prize. A device said to be able to destroy the entire universe. As the never-ending war rages on, destroying the planet, the survivors of the native population struggle to stay alive. With no way of defending themselves from the 15 races, they do what they can to gather information and find places that are relatively safe. But that is becoming harder and harder, as the very air on the planet has become toxic to them because of the ash which follows the battles between the races. The only silver lining is that none of the other races pay any attention to them, as they are far beneath them. Riku Dola, the leader of the remaining humans, does what he can to keep them alive, but doing so requires that some of them are sacrificed to gather the information they so need. But one day, Riku encounters an exiled member of the Ex-Machina race. He befriends her and names her Schwi. With her help, he might be able to bring an end to this meaningless battle.
Man, this movie kicks all kinds of ass. Not only does it look great, but the characters and plot are fantastic. This was a world without the 10 Commandments. A world where killing was common. Each of the 15 races were out for blood, and each is said to have access to their own kind of super-weapon. That's right, only 15 races. Humanity was not part of the Exeeed at the time. This is the forgotten history of the never-ending war, before the world was remade into Disboard. And what a ride this movie was. While it did have some comedy and a little bit of fanservice, this movie is much darker then the series. As it should. There's no fun to be had in this world. If you lose, you die. And you die horribly. While Sora & Shiro are arguably smarter then Riku & Schwi, I have many doubts that Sora & Shiro would have been able to pull off what Riku & Schwi did.
Video is from the JP BD, the subtiltes are from the US BD, and the subtitles for the little intro to the movie are from me. Contains 2.0 and 5.1 tracks. Enjoy the movie. It is fantasic.
