Synopsis

Surrounded by a cynical public and corrupt, manipulative State leaders, the Royal Space Force (RSF) is largely viewed as a joke as well as a waste of precious money and resources. After a chance meeting with a young, empathetic woman reencourages cadet Shiro Lhadatt to become the first man in space, the RSF cadets and a team of aging scientists rush to complete their epic launch before the military uses their space program as bait to start an all-out war.

The Wings of Honneamise stands as one of the best sci-fi anime movies ever created, on par with other great sci-fi anime movies the likes of Akira and Ghost in the Shell. Honneamise is the first feature length film by the legendary studio Gainax, and is a serious, but at times light hearted, inspiring, and experimental sci-fi story that doesn’t pander to Otaku. It’s a gripping tale about space, human history, destiny, political corruption, love, war, and religion.

Wow. I can't believe no one has written a review for this movie yet. I'd have to say that, based on its current 7.8 rating, it's slightly underrated. I myself would call it a masterpiece, but keeping other people's tastes in mind, I give it a conservative 9/10. (See bottom for a quick summary)

STORY
What makes this movie stand out is its spot-on storytelling. For me, there's not a single dull moment from beginning to end. Fans of action may be put off by instances of character development in the middle, but the movie always picks read more

Recommendations

Both based on story about first space flights to unknown above. But freedom have much more deeper story and character development.
Both focus on and question the social effects of science and technology: can we say "progress" is always a good thing? Both anime investigate relationships between aspiring astronauts and their anti-technology counterparts, the main argument being that the money used to build extravagant spaceships could be used to feed, clothe and shelter the needy. In The Wings of Honneamise, however, the relationship feels much more interesting. Overall, if enjoyed the political aspects of Planetes then you're sure to like this too.
