After the Interstellar Alliance established peace among most of the planets in the universe, they created the Cosmo Academy. The academy is renowned as the most elite school in existence, with its graduates guaranteed virtually any job they desire. However, one can only become a student if they pass the entrance examinations held every three years, making the competition for admission extremely fierce.

Lane Tadatos is a Terran who has managed to reach the final stage of examinations. Placed in a group of 10, he is sent to the Esperanza—a ship stranded in orbit. Their final test is to survive 53 days on the ship, without any means of communication with the outside other than an emergency forfeit button. But a serious problem emerges for the examinees when they perform a headcount. There are 11 people aboard the Esperanza, meaning that one of them is an impostor.

The only exception, of course, is the work that we are going to review at this time. A film that, although it does not adapt all the material of the manga, is an interesting piece within the mediocre set of medium-length and ...

Slight intro to this movie without spoilers
Often we see/hear events/people but having a second thought is not really done. Although, when one is put into a important situation does one start to really care. Sadly, that tends to be a little too late. Luckily they have a life line to use but that is it exactly a 'life' line. And they only have 'one'.

-Was a bit confusing at first but it made sense. It was an okay confusion because when it comes to science fiction anything most often something is made up and once your mind welcomes that idea ...

Here's my review: Frol deserved better.
I don't intend to unnecessarily bash things, and when I signed up for this website I told myself I would make a very strong effort to only contribute to the community in positive ways. So I'm going to try to say a few nice things about this movie, and I don't want to come off as mean-spirited.
I do not recommend this movie. If you've read the summary and you're intrigued by the premise, go watch LILY C.A.T.. It will be a far more fulfilling experience.
I initially heard about this movie through reading about Moto Hagio, who I'm a fan ...
