Sentai Filmworks has anounced the license of She, The Ultimate Weapon, Gonzo's 2012 adapation of Shin Takahashi's post-apocalyptic story of hardships of war, fighting one’s inner demons and the true nature of the human spirit.

 

They describe the series

 

Not every soldier wants to fight.  Not every weapon wants to be used.  But when an unexpected force attacks their city, the hopes and dreams of students Shuji and Chise are shattered by the fires of war.  Surviving the bombing after a mysterious defender decimates the attackers, Shuji discovers Chise in the ruins.  But she is no longer the girl he has always known.  Changed and twisted by military experiments, she has been altered into something no longer completely human.  And even worse, though they both fight to deny it, the things that made her the person she was are slowly beginning to fade away.  Can a human soul exist inside a device that was created to kill?  And can any heart continue to feel love for something that is only a shell of the person it once was?  The question will be answered as a young schoolgirl is transformed into the ultimate engine of mass destruction in SHE, THE ULTIMATE WEAPON!
 


She, The Ultimate Weapon will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
