A brief but curious little relic
23 January 2016 | by (Zambia) – See all my reviews

This sci-fi feature was screened at a science fair in 1985 Japan as a means to promote learning about space and the universe. Nowadays it's little more than a 1980s space fantasy feature, but it still makes for an interesting watch.

Anybody who knows sci-fi anime writer Leiji Matsumoto and his works can recognize the hallmarks in this piece: an elegant long-haired lady, a young boy companion, a world torn apart by conflict, a journey through space, a cosmic phenomenon, and a prayer for peace. However, it's done in an original and interesting manner and the story carries enough dramatic and philosophical weight to tie things together. It has the potential to be a better story if it could have lasted longer.

The animation is above average, given that it has some adequate computer graphics (in the 80s such VFX were still unrefined). The music is the main draw here, with two vintage 80s songs that are great to listen to.

All in all, it's a brief but curious little relic that represents the 1980s and its love for space fantasy.
