In March of 1992 producers at Gainax had began planning on a sequel film called "Aoki Uru" with Hideaki Anno slated to direct. The project fell through a year later due to financial difficulties faced by the studio. However, it was announced in March 2013 that the sequel is in production once again. See more »
How am I suppose to say if it's for the better or the worst? I grew up all ordinary, middle-class countryside home. There was trees and streams near home, but being in the middle I never suffered the hardship of the poor, I couldn't grasp the frustration that much. I guess it's an advantage. But when I was young I knew what I wanted: only the Navy had jets. Fast jets. They flew very high and very fast. I needed to feel those wings. Had I been a pilot, can I touch the wing?

"Honneamise no tsubasa" is clearly the masterpiece of Japanese anime. I was lucky enough to see this film for the first time at the cinema, and I feel for those of you who have only been able to see it on video. What you miss is the immaculate artistry of the animation: the detail, the complexity, the invention and most of all the beauty. The opening credits are up there amongst my favourites (Vertigo, Delicatessen) not because of any originality
the use of pictures in credits have been done before (Days of Heaven) -
but more because of the use of Japanese water painting of these images. It is also the blending of these images with the right music which makes the credits so exquisite. But also the great thing about this movie for all of us, is the wonderful story that is told. The use of a parallel earth in which the events occur is ingenius, it allows the story to remain in a sense inherently Japanese but also universal. See this film it is a gem
