Inuyasha dating story with different endings
Despite the consistent use of existing aircraft, the manga - unlike the anime adaptations - introduced, as the series progressed, a number of elements that may have been considered science fiction at the time but at least used existing technology.Such devices include a land-based aircraft carrier with its fleet of AI-controlled F/A-18 fighters.The first three-episode OVA adaptation from 1985 had Shin return to Area 88 in his F-20 fighter while the Area was being overrun by a devastating massive force of anti-government Mig-21 jets.His fate and those of Saki, Mickey, Greg and some other pilots is left uncertain.a 12-episode anime television series in 2004, and a video game in 1989 (released in North America as U. Area 88 takes place between the late 1970s to early 1980s and is largely set in a war-embroiled Middle Eastern country called the Kingdom of Arslan.The war uses mercenary fighter pilots, with its headquarters at a secret desert air force base called Area 88.The 2004 anime series truncated the story to just after Shin lost his F-5E, but in that continuity Shinjou, the photographer, manages to return to Japan just in time to derail Kanzaki's plot to marry Ryoko.The series also introduced the permanent characters of Kim, from the manga, and Saki's cousin Kitori, who appeared in the manga as Seilane Balnock.
The English-language version published by Eclipse Comics was left unfinished and incomplete: Shin does not return to Japan.
From the OVA's conclusion it's reasonable to suggest the end date is sometime in early 1986 given Shin's term in Arslan (2 years 5 months).
Note, however, this is directly contradicted by a scene in the third part of the OVA in which we see a calendar in Shin's room during his discharge, the date being Monday, Sept. It's more likely that the animators in fact were in error, both about the days of the week, and about the date of service of the F/A-18 (although its predecessor, the YF-17 could explain the date inconsistency considering the similarity of design), as they had made a similar error with the F-14 Tomcat in the second part of the OVA, depicting the F-14 in a bombing run over Vietnam, when the plane did not see actual combat action (however, it did participate in the American withdrawal from Saigon by providing fighter escort to the helicopters carrying fleeing refugees).
A rebel weapon called the Grand Slam is basically a ballistic missile modified with a drill machine.
There was also other exotic weaponry, none of which appeared in either anime adaptation.
