Storyline

Jomy Mark Shin is a seemingly ordinary boy on Earth, but fate has shown him something different. The authorities learn that he is a Mu, a member of race of psionic humans that are marked for death by the Central computer called Mother Eliza. He is rescued by a rebel group of Mu's lead by Soldier Blue, who shows him that he is of artificial birth in a space colony. Now, Jomy must be the successor to Soldier Blue and fight for the survival of his people and the right to return to Earth. However, the human forces lead by the elite officer, Keith Anyan, are a formidable and deadly threat. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Pretty, but dull...
24 April 2012 | by dave13-1See all my reviews

There is very little action here, and not much else of interest to make up for its absence. The whole thing has a nice 1970s Leiji Matsumoto look - Space Battleship Yamato, Harlock Saga etc. - but while the creators strove for (and in some cases achieved) an awe-inspiring overall look, there is less of the sweeping narrative grandeur of those other films. Moreover, the potentially interesting story elements here - a secret society of espers fighting against a tyrannical government in a future utopia - are not well developed. There is too much dialogue discussing what is going on around the characters and not enough INVOLVEMENT of those characters in what is going on around them.

Overall, there seemed a poor mix of fictional and dramatic elements.
