THE GREAT WAR OF ARCHIMEDES, based on the 2015 manga series “Archimedes no Taisen," is a dramatized depiction of the behind-the-scenes struggles of the Japanese Navy while building the Yamato, the largest battleship in the world, prior to WWII. The film is produced by TOHO (Godzilla, My Hero Academia), directed by Takashi Yamazaki (The Eternal Zero), and stars Suda Masaki (Drowning Love), Emoto Tasuku (And Your Bird Can Sing), and Hamabe Minami (The Promised Neverland). English dub available.
Pre-WWII, the Japanese Navy commissioned the creation of impressive “supership” Yamato, strongly opposed by a top official insisting on more strategic and battle-ready warships. After being ignored without cause, Admiral Yamamoto recruits a math genius to help uncover what he soon suspects is a massive conspiracy.
