THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.

To be honest I didn't really understand how the ship can traverse light years with ease, yet the messages don't. Also if it can go one way so fast why can't it come back just as fast?

To understand it - it is necessary to know the special theory of a relativity. So, just read this;) -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twin_paradox And about the ship. It has been destroyed?

I understood it fine. It was a good work but somewhat short! Very detailed animation as expected. Not nearly good as 5cm/s

Finally bought the DVD.
Animation was extremely detailed and beautiful, and a great soundtrack to come with it.
I actually understood this movie better than 5cm/s for some reason. xD
Maybe it wasn't divided into parts? Dunno. :P

Otherwise, the story was really touching and heartwarming, and I look forward to more of Makoto Shinkai's works in the future.

10/10

Damnit! Don't die without my permission!

And we must not forget Makoto Shinkai's good friend Tenmon for once again providing the music. Those two make a good team.

I didn t understand why they couldn t transfer information through warped space either.
Need moar Stephen Hawking.

The story was good though, the animation was perfect however I wasn t satisfied with the character design. It felt like some alternate Gunbuster remake or some kind of mecha version of 5cm/s. The story was amazing for a 20-minute-show.

animation made me turn it off after 10 minutes, this is horrible
It doesn't think, it doesn't feel, it doesn't laugh or cry..... All it does from dusk till dawn is make the soldiers die.

Considering that it was animated by a team of 1 person... on a laptop... I'd say it's not too bad. :-P

Agreed. I thought the character design was subpar. And who the hell lets a 15 year old pilot a mech?

Neon Genesis Evangelion anyone?

Anyway, awesome animation, simple story that packs an emotional punch
10/10 for the best OVA I've ever seen

I torture myself by watching this, since it's so sad...
Superb animations, too. Character design wasn't really likeable, but the environments were <3

One of those movies that you'll absolutely love but will never want to watch again simply because of how sad it made you. As for the animation, the environments and landscapes were gorgeous and used color schemes brilliantly. I didn't think the character design was that much worse than a lot of animes, except for the mecha design which was a little disappointing. However, if you're looking to enjoy an anime purely for a good story, then you can't possibly do better than this.

The conceit of this story, that the technology of travel and warfare outstrip communications technology (literally by light years) is a bit much to swallow. That and the telephone "tones" that sound when the star-crossed lovers are texting on their phones. But overall I thought it was a short and bittersweet production, with a strong concept and beautiful design.

And it's just a good love story ^_^

More like "90% of Mecha anime, anyone". Anyway, it worked for VoaDS since it make the difference in aging between the two much more meaningful than if they were both in their 20's when she left.
