In March of 1992 producers at Gainax had began planning on the sequel film Aoki uru with Hideaki Anno slated to direct. The project fell through a year later due to financial difficulties faced by the studio. However, Gainax has repeatedly attempted to restart Aoki Uru, and finally in 2013 got the sequel into production. See more »
An old anime classic. Not what many would expect from anime, there isn't heaps of guns or robot or weird mythology, it's just a simple story.
The two combating nations in the parallel world to ours, remind me of a cross between the US & USSR (although cooling, the Cold War was still alive & well when this film was made in 1987) mixed with a cross between North & South Korea.
The animation is very good, & holds up well even in 2004, though the soundtrack while very catchy, shows the age of the film with the 1980's synthesizer.
