Trivia

Some of the missiles fired during the space battle scene are actually Pepsi cans. This may be a reference to the film _Chôjikû yôsai Macross: Ai oboeteimasuka (1984)_ qv), which used a similar gag that replaced a pair of missiles with a Budweiser can and a sake flask. This gag was courtesy of mecha designer Shôichi Masuo, who also previously worked on the Macross scene in question. See more »

Goofs

After the alien ship destroys the space station, the resulting wreckage floats across the screen towards the left comes to a complete stop. In the next shot, the debris is moving once again. See more »

Quotes

B-ko: Is that all you can think about? Being a good little girl and charming the teachers? Well, naturally it never occurred to you that some of us aren't born with the same charm! But you don't care; you're always the good little heroine, while I have to be the one everyone said was spoiled! Okay, if people say I'm the bad girl, then that's what I'm gonna be!

One of my favorite animes!
17 April 2004 | by (Fenton, Missouri, USA) – See all my reviews

Well, to start, I saw this movie on VHS about 10 years ago. I was amazed at how well Project A-Ko was written and animated. I bought the DVD version just the other day. The fight between A-Ko and B-Ko was well drawn, and is one of the best fight scenes ever. I mean that it got to the point where they were throwing Earth and alien military tanks at each other!!!

There also were quite a few hilarious scenes. The 4 scenes where the guy that was looking for C-Ko gets pummeled by A-Ko's superhuman speed was one of them. Another was A-Ko and B-Ko rescuing C-Ko. A-Ko jumps onto military fighter airplane that's in mid-air, and the airplane gets destroyed because she was distracting the pilot.
