Uninspiring is best said for this anime. While the action scenes are slightly interesting that is all you are getting. No outstanding introduction or moral lesson conclusion. You get some action. Then again this is a grandfather anime (starter) so almost anything from that decade is okay for that time period. Not convinced? Allow me to elaborate in more detail but somewhat vague so i don't ruin your viewing experience.
Introduction stated the main character's problem as well as stature. Show became slightly interesting when a second character came in. Mostly because of the cute factor. Sadly, that was
meant as decoration and not essential to plot. Talk about a missed opportunity. Oh well. While the introduction was informative in some matters like goal but lacked in others like, how did the character get in this position? What is the background of the ship? In other words the show painted things in a general perspective rather than detailed. What is the point of watching something unless you provide unique tailoring features?
Conclusion wasn't bad for its loss of details but mainly for its lack of luster or flare. I am not saying a marching band is in order but something memorable. Which is why life lessons in anime are needed. An example of how this anime could have ended in a more positive fashion would be a jail sentence and a revisit to the missed opportunity the main character had with the cute element. Had he taken more consideration in that of others rather than himself he too would reaps in the benefits. While this example i provide is quite different from the original ending at least my ending speaks words rather than simply cutting off.
Yes, it is black and white but at least there is no pause stills i can recall. Pause stills are where the animation is put on hold so a text message could be read by the viewer. Which covered the entire screen.
Also, in terms of detail it wasn't bad. Could have been improved like in 720 or 1080 version but it played in what felt like 360p which wasn't that bad in pixels.
A rarity that added wonders to the animation. That being the voice and sound elements. Although, why they felt the need for one person to cover all roles i don't know. Perhaps, it was cheaper? Either way ruins the mood a little.
