Love. War. And the final frontier.
Shiro Lhadatt joins the Royal Space Force only because his low grades bar him from the air force; he encounters ridicule from manipulative leaders and shares apathy with his fellow co-workers. A chance encounter with devout young Riquinni spurs him towards his destiny—to become the first man in space.

The movie has some fantastic scenes, especially the space launch at the end but it is a rather uneven pace and I felt that the characters could have used some more depth. The planned second movie would have helped but that funding failure has given us Neon Gensis Evangelion so I'm OK with that!

Edit: Looks like the sequel is coming afterall. They announced it earlier this year ("only" 10 years later).

Breathtaking Masterpiece from the guys that made Evangelion, 10/10
