"The Five Star Stories" is a well created Japanese anime film. I found it at a local bargain bin and picked it up and I was very impressed. Although its only in Japanese I still thought it was very powerful, but I would still like to see it with an English audio track. The DVD comes with a booklet that describes the timeline of this film and a character bio for most of the cast. The movie itself maybe considered boring and hard to understand but its still entertaining. I strongly recommend this movie to anyone who likes older anime and other series such as GUNDAM or ESCAFLOWNE. You will not be disappointed with "The Five Star Stories".
