Overview
Shin Kazama is a gifted pilot with a bright future, a beautiful fiancée and a job with a prestigious airline until a treacherous act of betrayal rips his world apart and sends him into the barren desert of the war-torn Kingdom of Aslan. With escape only meaning death, he must now use his superior skills to become a cold-blooded aerial killer; and with every kill, he paints a trail of blood in the sky back to the life that was stolen from him.

Area 88 pushes the boundaries of animation to the limits with a visual beauty that is rarely accomplished. You can almost feel the jet wash on the desert wind.

This is Area 88. In the desert the souls of men are either consumed by the fire or reborn from the ashes.
