Very touching, different and well done.
1 July 2003 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

Well, this one caught me off guard! I was very surprised of it... Art is done fantastically... still can't believe that it's done by one person! Can't wait for the second! Just go ahead and see if you can find one! Its translated title is "Voices of a Distant Star".
