"Jin-Roh", the critically acclaimed 1998 Japanese anime movie based on Mamoru Oshii's comic series "Kerberos - Panzer Cops", tells the story of the CAPO (Capital Police). Taking place in an alternate Japan that lost World War II to Nazi Germany 10 years ago, the CAPO consists of elite panzer troopers equipped with heavy firearms, red-goggles, and special "Protect Gear" armor suits. This specialized unit is feared by criminals, anti-government groups, and

The newest version of the JIN-ROH "Stray Dog - Kerberos Panzer Cops" character has been created by DRAGON and it is an outstanding figure on every level from the headsculpt to the weapons to the armor. This is an outstanding addition to any sci-fi figure collection. These figures are based on the anime story.
JIN-ROH's Constable Kazuki Fuse is a special-forces operative who kills in the name of the law. He doubts the worth of his humanity, but Fuse is yet a man of flesh and blood, and he still remains human enough to feel cold – to be frightened – and to seek, with quiet desperation, to be absolved.
JIN-ROH's setting is Tokyo – not the Tokyo of the future, but of an alternate past. In the bizarre, ironic tradition of Philip K. Dick's "The Man in the High Castle" -- JIN-ROH presents a Japan that lost a different Second World War – not to America, but to Nazi Germany.
Now, more than ten years after the defeat, the occupation troops have left, but their legacy is JIN-ROH’s twilight-zone city where the domestic terrorism of "The Sect" plays out in everyday bombings and street battles against the counter-terrorist Capital Police – and their elite armored, helmeted, and red-goggled Special Unit.
JIN-ROH has as its subtitle, "The Wolf Brigade"– after the name of a rumored inner cabal within the faction-ridden Capital Police. The literal meaning of jin-roh is "man-wolf." This is not the term, "okami-otoko," that the Japanese use to refer to a werewolf, Instead, this story is based on a different myth, that of Little Red Riding Hood – or rather, the more sinister, original version of the story known in Grimm’s Fairy Tales as "Rotkäppchen."
