Horrendous worldbuilding, trashy ending and awful animation. Its like an extended cutscene for a ps1 game.


Pretty good for a first Movie


Good, but don’t expect miracles. The animation is good, but the art style lets it down. The sparks are there, they just don’t catch.


Beautiful story, but the CGI was a problem for a lot of people, keep in mind this is a 2002 3D anime, and also the creators first try.


It’s just a college project, but it’s impossible not to notice that this is technically bad and the worldbuilding is totally illogical


nice concept, wtf is with the art, still caught feels


Great show, anime version of Interstellar



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
