Manga Entertainment began streaming an English trailer for the First Squad - The Moment Of Truth OVA on its Facebook page on Tuesday. Anchor Bay announced last year that it had acquired the film project, which is Yoshiharu Ashino and Studio 4°C's animated video version of a story by Russian artists Misha Sprits and Aljosha Klimov.
First Squad is set during the opening days of World War II on the Eastern Front. A group of Soviet teenagers with extraordinary abilities has been drafted into a special unit to fight the invading German army. A Schutzstaffel (SS) officer attempts to raise from the dead an army of crusaders from the 12th-century Order of the Sacred Cross and enlist them in the Nazi cause.
