In the not so distant future, war has come to Japan. Caught
up in the configuration are two young high school lovers,
Shuji and Chise. Chise is a young clumsy and not too bright
girl who is in love with Shuji. The normality of their teenage
romance is seriously interrupted when during an attack Shuji
discovers that Chise has been turned into She the Ultimate
you think that the previously released episodes were sad then
you really shouldn't be buying this DVD, from here on in the
show becomes more and more tragic. This is a depiction of
a war where everybody looses.
Nine: Akemi, and Chise leaves Tetsu to return to the
military, but things have not gone well and she lapses into
a coma. Meanwhile, Shuji is trying to survive in a world that
is slowly unravelling under the pressure of the war. Shuji
goes to see Akemi, who is dying of her horrific injuries,
and she declares her love for him. Like I said, the death
toll really starts to mount up from this episode. In the scenes
of death and destruction little is held back, allowing the
audience the full visceral experience of watching someone
die painfully and unnecessarily.
Ten: And Then..., Chise is awake and angry, she finds
Tetsu dying of his wounds after she kills the soldiers that
shot him. With the military in full retreat the school is
finally closed to become an army headquarters. As the world
heads into its final nightmare everyone is struggling to find
some love, as if love can conquer all.
Eleven: A Time for Us, five days following Chise's
return to Shuji and the two lovers have fled the war, trying
to find a last chance at happiness. For a while the pretence
seems to be working and the lovers find some peace at last.
However, Chise is hiding the fact that she is running out
of her medication, the only thing which stops her turning
into a homicidal killing machine.
Episode Twelve: Love Song, and the war and the military
have once more caught up with the lovers. With her medication
finally exhausted Chise can no longer stop herself from turning
into the ultimate weapon and falling back into the hands of
the army. The lovers meet for one last time, though Chise
is now almost completely a weapon.
Thirteen: And We Will Love, and we discover why the
story has all been told as if it happened in the past. With
the planet in ruins will the power of love or Chise's power
be enough to avert the apocalypse.
