I encourage more people to find this as it is a part of anime history. Truly a monumental achievement back in the eighties, to put the ideas of Clarke and Asimov to paper and shoot cell after cell was pretty kool! lol

We have the basis for most high tech, futuristic genres in this anime. Space exploration for the purpose of repopulating in a cleaner, longer lasting sense via terraforming other worlds. Sound familiar? You bet your cheeks tis'! With this movie you have the idea and what it might seem like to pitch long term space sleep and travel to prospective colonizers read more

I have to make one thing clear: Space Fantasia 2001 Nights is NOT an anime for everyone. If you want to know if you will enjoy this, just answer these question: Do you like Golden Age Sci Fi, like the novels and short stories of Arthur C. Clarke or Asimov? Do you think that Star Trek TOS is the best Trek? Can you tolerate 80s anime art and animation? If you, just like me, say yes to all of those question above, you will definitely enjoy this hidden gem. This short OVA is a great homage to the now extinct species of old hard sci read more

It's a simple enough plot. Space exploration and attempting to begin life anew elsewhere. The story is told in a detached historical way that I have not seen anywhere else. It just plows on through making brief mention of how the characters are linked. There was also an unhappy mood hanging over the whole story.

The animation was very poor by today's standards. Considering when it was made though, this is to be expected.

Nothing really stood out. There was happy and sad music in all the appropriate places though so I guess that counts as a plus....

There wasn't a whole read more

I knew about the manga for this first, saw it in some Book-Off and very nearly bought the whole series except that I knew it'd be too difficult to read and digest it all. Didn't know they had an anime movie for it!

This movie covers three chapters in the stages of life for a small, risky space colony designed to help save the human race from what is looking to be a surefire extinction. It's beautiful. It's sad, and it's beautiful. Anyone who loved Interstellar has got to see this, because it covers similar ground in a far different way.

Also, that soundtrack is kicking.
