Stray Dog: Kerberos Panzer Cops 1991 / ケルベロス 地獄の番犬 1991 / Jigoku no Banken

This film is the second episode of the Kerberos feature trilogy. It is preceded by The Red Spectacles, released in 1987, and followed by Jin-Roh premiered in 1999. However the trilogy's timeline is set backward; this film is the prequel to The Red Spectacles and the sequel of Jin-Roh. The film begins with the last stand of the Kerberos unit. After disobeying an order to disarm and disband, they have held out for an unspecified time: talk between the fatigued Kerberos cops suggests that they might have been stuck there for three days, three months, to three years. A power amplifier system issues orders for a final stand and for Koichi Todome, Midori Washio, and Soichiro Toribe to come to the central building. A Kerberos named Inui wanders through the halls of the Kerberos headquarters and then witnesses officer Koichi Todome boarding a helicopter. Angry, Inui feels betrayed by his master and asks why he's running away and not fighting until the end like he has ordered to his men. As the helicopter takes off, the army breach the headquarters.
