The final version is set in 2142 A.D., a century after humanity’s carelessness resulted in the collapse of Earth’s biosphere. The only survivors are a technological society in a magnificent enclosed scientifically-designed refuge city, Ecoban, and a small horde of refugees in the Wasteland just outside. The leaders of Ecoban have supported the refugees in return for their providing labor to mine the raw materials needed to keep Ecoban operational.

After a century, Ecoban’s leaders have degenerated into an indolent elite class who have reduced the “Diggers” to slavery, providing no more than the barest minimum to keep them alive. Meanwhile, the machinery sustaining Ecoban continues to pollute the world outside. The Diggers have finally grown angry enough to strike for better conditions. At the same time Ecoban’s machinery is breaking down and repairing it requires endangering the "Diggers" lives with more pollution.

Nice animation, poor plot.
Enjoyed watching it only because of nice art. The plot is the most trivial you can think of. Characters only a bit better. Only good for meditative world watching.

At first I was afraid this was going to be like Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within - a big let down, but I was pleasantly surprised by this high quality Korean animated feature.

Like both the Final Fantasy installments, which this is so reminiscent of, Wonderful Days takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where a group of humans are fighting for a better tomorrow - their wonderful days. One can tell that the plot is not a major aspect of the movie; there is very little background on the present events and little or no clarification of what is what. But that's read more

Sky Blue is probably the lamest anime movie I have seen so far. Not that it is entirely bad, I have enjoyed watching it, but if someone asked me what I think about it, “lame” would be a perfect word.

Lameness begins with storyline. It is the most generic dystopian future storyline that you could think of.
Mankind has split into groups of two: elite, who live in ultra sterile futuristic Eden, and working class who live in the wasteland.

While I think it is accurate vision of the future or even depiction of the present day (we already are divided by where we live, where we eat, read more

I came across this movie while i was looking through some animes that were on sale. As it only was like 4$ I thought I’d buy it. I didn’t really expect anything from it, since it was Korean and all, but I was pleasantly surprised..

[5]Story: The story had potential, and had this been a series with at least 12 episodes I think it would have been really good. But as it stands we only have a movie and the 1.5 hours of playtime is not nearly enough to explore the desolated world we are introduced to in ‘Wonderful Days’. If you want to know read more

Anime: Akira
Groundbreaking film.
Amazing storyline set in a post-apocalyptic Japan. As well as biker gangs and military action the film explores deeper psychological and philosophical themes.
The visual aspect of the animation is stunningly good even by modern standards. A must see for any film fan.
Directed by Katsuhiro Otomo -1988

Anime: Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children
Animation and graphics are very good, I could even say a whole lot better composed then in FF. If you liked the FF series, this is something you should watch.

Anime: Vexille: 2077 Nihon Sakoku
Both CGI and both have a similar style in terms of plot and animation.

Anime: Ghost in the Shell
Both anime have a similar setting, as they are set in a futuristic and technologically-advanced world. Both have a similar atmosphere and cyberpunk elements. The main female characters of both movies have a similar look, and they are both part of a special police task force that hunt terrorists. The background designs and details of both anime are also quite similar. The biggest difference between the two is that "Ghost in the Shell" has cyborgs, while "Wonderful Days" doesn't.

Anime: Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence
Both are cyberpunk, and having sci-fi futuristic scenes set with older traditions and culture which gives a rich atmosphere.

Anime: Metropolis
The events of both movies happen in huge, technologically-advanced, futuristic cities. In both anime, the main characters are being hunted by the authorities. Also, both anime have rich and detailed background art. Apart from these similarities, both anime also have similar plots, as they deal with the lower classes of the society rioting and protesting against the rich class. Both have some action and violence, as well as dystopian and cyberpunk elements, which give both anime a similar tone.
