Shirotsugh "Shiro" Lhadatt may be a cadet in the Kingdom of Honneamise's Royal Space Force (RSF), but he has never been in space before—in fact, nobody has. The RSF is often regarded as a failure both by the country's citizens and a government more interested in precipitating a war with a neighboring country than scientific achievement. Following the funeral of a fellow cadet, an unmotivated Shiro is walking in the city one night, when he bumps into Riquinni Nonderaiko, a young, pious woman, genuinely enthusiastic about the significance of space exploration.

As the two gradually bond, Riquinni's encouragement inspires Shiro to volunteer as a pilot for a prospective rocket ship, potentially becoming Honneamise's first man in space. Shiro and the RSF are soon joined by a team of elderly but eager scientists and engineers, and together, they embark on a mission to mold their nation's space program into a success. However, their efforts soon catch the attention of the government, which seems to have a different plan for the RSF in mind. Even as the odds are stacked against them, these men and women continue to stubbornly look to the sky, because somewhere among the frontiers of space may lie humanity's last chance at redemption.

"When I was a kid, I wanted to be a navy pilot. For me, there could be nothing better than flying."

Royal Space Force is the debut film of the legendary studio Gainax. Probably best known for their later success (and massively overrated mess) Evangelion. Originally a box office flop it later went on to become regarded as a cult classic due to the success and reappraisal it had on home video. Taking place on an alternate world where a disengaged young man, Shirotsugh, inspired by an idealistic woman named Riquinni, volunteers to become the first astronaut, which becomes a decision that draws them into both ...

Mixed Feelings
This is without a shadow of a doubt the single most beautiful looking movie I've ever seen.
It cost nearly 1 billion Yen (In 2021 money) to produce and it REALLY shows.

Unfortunately I can't say quite as much nice stuff about the rest of the movie.
The characters are bland, the music is so awkward its actually painful to listen to.

The story is very cliche, boy meets girl. Girl changes his world view and he undergoes some kind of deep seated change. Very standard stuff, just with a heaping tablespoon of religion and moralizing.

Honestly though, the art is so outstanding. It more than makes up ...

The animation and designs are amazing. Those are really the only good things I can say about the movie.
The story is remarkably boring and doesn't seem to go anywhere or have a point to it. I suppose you could say it was unpredictable though as I had hoped it would go somewhere at least.
Other than Shiro, I can't even remember the names of any of the characters. They're all forgettable. Shiro's motivations seem unclear and I don't really understand why he does any of the things he does. The relationship between two of the main characters is confusing and completely uninteresting. The music is ...
