Zipang Box Set with V01 (2004)
|Scheduled for routine military exercises, Kadomatsu and the crew of Japan's newest and most modern battlecruiser, Mirai, are ready to test out the ship's state-of-the-art AEGIS systems. Instead, they find themselves transported back to June 4th, 1942 - the date of the crucial Battle of Midway, where the Japanese fleet was dealt a crippling blow.|
But when an overzealous Kadomatsu rescues one of the battle's victims, Kusaka, from a sinking Zero Fighter, the Mirai's fate is sealed. They are forced to fight a U.S. submarine in a battle that should never have occurred, and the crew pledges not to do anything to alter history further. But the flow of history may already be diverted...

Editor's NoteIn this initial volume of the ZIPANG anime series, Kadomatsu and the entire Mirai crew try out the AEGIS system, but the results are not what they expected. Sent back in time to June 4th, 1942, the whole team finds itself in the midst of the Battle of Midway. While it is tempting to use insight from the future, it is also crucial they don't mess with fate. How much can they control the course of history? Find out in this first set of episodes.
