Patch of the brigade.

The "Japan Youth Rebellion Brigade" or "Nihon Seinen Hangyaku Ryodan" (日本青年反逆旅団) was a military unit in the successors of the Imperial Japanese Military, who fought back in order to liberate Japan from the decaying Order presence across the world. The unit was among the least trained, yet succesful units in the liberation.  It was mostly due the fact that they were children, but it could only go so far with some. 


Established by the recreated Japanese Rebellion near the end of 2017, just roughly 3 months after the victory at the Battle of Washington DC, taking Japan's youth willling to fight against the Order. In which they were first lead by former Order Officers that defected, wanting to gain back only heard from their grandfathers and great grandfathers in the previous Imperial Military. When that proved ineffective in controlling the "soldiers," they instead assigned them literal "Junior Officers." After the change, they were soon plunged into the conflict, being given the order to destroy the Order Forces in Japan through their capability to recruit those who were still loyal to their cause.

SSS massacre

One of the most massive failures of the Brigade, the Order Academy Massacre.

So naturally, their targets would have been the recruiting centers and the infamous academy that would bring them greatest failure in their creation in the future, in which many lives would be lost.

In their mission to destroy the centers, they often did them cleanly and quickly, usually leaving the targets in ruins. The only things left unharmed were often the Order Forces that refused to fire on children, which were left to be arrested by the Imperial Japanese Military.

One of their last missions was to assault an academy in Kyoto that dedicated itself to turning the young minds of Japan to be serving as soldiers. Initially, the assaut seemed successful, the first team managing to dispose of the guards from afar. Afterwards, a whole battalion charged ahead, but was knocked out once they entered through the gates. What happened next was terrible, deemed as terrorist by the students, they were placed across the  school yard and shot dead by the students. Enraged of what happened, the commander ordered that no student was to be left alive, who have holed up in the main building and fortified with machine guns, along with other defenses.  By the end, the academy was in ruins and everyone in the school dead, the massacre of the battalion lost avenged. It was the greatest failure of the brigade.

Afterwards, their participation in attacks lessened, as there were more fighters joining the new imperial military. This would lead up to the eventual disbandment of the brigade.


After the greatest failure, they were subjected to supplying missions more and more, as the superiors did not want more casualties from the brigade. While the participated in some active assaults, they were often left to wander in their base, waiting for orders. In the end, the participation in assaults stopped altogether as the liberation of Japan grew nearer and nearer. Finally, in December 20, 2017, the group was disbanded by the official military, having liberated about 98% of Japan by that point.

Size and OrganizationEdit

As the name said, their was an estimated 4,000 soldiers in the unit, all of them under the age of 25 years old. They either had left their parents to join, orphans, or they had a parent in the rebellion. The brigade took any kid in that wanted to join, so there was some in the unit who was only 6 years old. The brigade was divided into separate branches, tasking the youth inside of what they should do, here it is:
