Aroview: Evocative and measured anime, which bases its sci-fi storyline around a future Japan divided by civil war into two islands separated by sea.
Three children growing up on one island ponder a lofty tower they can see far in the distance and plan to build a flying machine to investigate it. Years later, they resume this pledge as war again breaks out... Mature in tone and supported by lovingly animated imagery, the maker of VOICES OF A DISTANT STAR here fulfils his potential.

3 stars (Good Enough) The attraction was not in the characters but in the animation of railway carriages etc. and the landscapes. The sci-fi aspect of the screenplay has some strength and was well written.~tubbs
