Sleek military jets soar, swoop, and loop overhead while and attractive girls fawn over a cute but meek guy; if this sounds like a winning combination to you, then 801 T.T.S. Airbats is your video. Set at a fictional, all-female Japanese Defense Force Squadron, 801 T.T.S. Airbats delivers equal portions of top notch flying action and comedy.

The animation, by anime legend Yuji Moriyama, is crisp and fluid and the quality of the production is high. The story is basic but fun. Don't expect breakthroughs - either in drama or comedy. The creators have chosen to play it right down the middle and they do not deviate off course.

All in all, 801 T.T.S Airbats is an enjoyable, fluffy comedy that hits most of the marks. It won't disappoint but it isn't going to leave a lasting impression either.

Volume 1: "DVD Collection" Plot Summary:

801 T.T.S. Airbats is a tale of strong women who have to rely on a "sensitive guy? for emotional guidance and to be the "brains? of the operation and Private Isurugi is that lucky man.

Only one of three men in the all female 801 Tactical Training Squadron, Isurugi is a mechanical whiz who can fix anything. He is also the target of attention for the squads? two top pilots - Mitaka, a talented but surly tomboy, and Haneda, a quiet but skilled flyer.

In this series complemention volume, the squadron commander, Kengamine, is constantly challenged by the actions of his lovelorn pilots while having to deal with a resentful high command that is just looking for a reason to disband the unit as well.

The first episode focuses on introducing the viewer the cast and revolves around an upcoming test that will determine the very existence of the unit.

The second episode superficially deals with a second test to determine whether the squadron will remain or disband but is primarily focused on which of the two ladies will be the one to get to take Isurugi out for dinner on his birthday.

The third episode again hinges on the big test established in the second episode. Things look grim as back room maneuvers have caused 801's best pilot to be transferred away at the last minute.

The fourth episode sends the gang to hotel for a little R&R. Unfortunately, they find themselves at a resort that leaves a little to be desired and is haunted. Will the intrepid warriors of the 801st be able to solve this mystery?

The fifth episode has The Thunderbirds, the American Air Force precision flying team, visitng the 801st. Egos flare and pride is put on the line as the two teams face off. Who has the right stuff to win?

The sixth episode goes for lighter fare as the 801st compete to see who can win at the local restaurant's ramen eating contest. Place your bets now!

The seventh and final episode touches a wistful note as we learn more of the history of the 801st and it's characters in a flashback episode.
