Trivia

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, but the failure opened the door for Anno to produce his series, Neon Genesis Evangelion (1995). See more »

Meticulously constructed alternate world makes for one of my favorite movies
5 March 2003 | by (Puerto Rico) – See all my reviews

The only way I can describe how this film makes me feel is to compare it to a child watching My Neighbor Totoro. It is animation but not quite what you see everyday. It has a plot but it has subtle and even hidden depth.

To me this film is so good that it ceases to be "just anime" to become film art in the truest sense: it conjures up an imaginary world and makes it real, people have troubles and tribulations and we identify with them, everything comes to conclusion and we are changed by it and for the better.

For people think this is just sunday network cartoons two hours long I recommend watching this alongside Apollo 13 and/or Forrest Gump and try to find the analogies, you'll be surprised.
