like they broke through the ground and there was an inverted place?
Was it.. the other side of the world? or a section inside the world?
didn't those buildings float into space?

i am confused.

I believe last "world" was default/ original earth/fixed part of earth (check this http://myanimelist.net/forum/?topicid=1171937 )

That black and white strict society was inner globe. When they were flying up they hit other side of the globe (they were inside earth(or something globe like )] that's why they had "ceiling" there. Can't explain sun and day/night cycle. It was simply sci-fi. It was something like huge light shining down on them and they were pretty close to it when they were up on "ceiling". When it started shining they got hot as well.

Underground city was simply in wall / layer of globe.

World at the end had what i guess was moon, that's why i think it was real sky. Buildings where either those parts which didn't get affected by reverse gravity or they were fixed by scientists as they wrote in the letter at the end "After settling that area, we pushed forward with research into the repair of gravity inversion.
Now it seems a successful breakthough may by just out of reach."

BTW: Do I miss any worthwhile anime-romance from guy's point of view in MAL? Let me know without hesitation :)

Ah thanks so did that guy want to erase the "inverted" people because his society was the real ones that were inverted?

The steampunk-style ceiling was probably set up by their ancestors to simulate day and night. It was said in the movie that after the failed experiment their scientists joined the inverted people, and could have worked on this.

No, he really believed his own drivel and was trying to purify the Earth. I like to think that he realized the truth as he was dying.

If we take that physics is legit in this place, in the end Patema is the one who holds eiji on the ground, but the thing is, eiji is heavier than patema(as we have seen in the first half) so they 2 should be going to the moon, not sticking on earth. to make it work eiji needed to hold on to Porta to not fly away to da moon. Too bad this movie took such an interesting premise and f'd it up at the end.

Just mere speculation, but I think the backpack she wore before holding onto him is heavy enough (or perhaps a sort of weight has been placed inside) so as to overcome Age's body weight. But, if it weren't for this reason, I wouldn't know why she'd wear the backpack in the first place.

here is my take. there are two groups, one with their with their gravity reversed, namely Age's and Patema's. Long ago the experiment reversed the gravity of the ancestors of Age's group, who then went to live underground (with their fake sky with the machine with all the lights). The ancestor's of Patema's group went with the gravity reversed group to help them, as they were the original scientists. In the end, the actual real surface of the world is shown and it is revealed that Age's group are the ones who actually had their gravity reversed.

@ Mad_King_Aerys,



nicely spotted, but even without that I thought it was quite obvious that Age's group had their gravity reversed (The fake sun machine was the dead giveaway).

The steampunk-style ceiling was probably set up by their ancestors to simulate day and night. It was said in the movie that after the failed experiment their scientists joined the inverted people, and could have worked on this.

Actually, the steam towers are mostly likely to generate the clouds, as well as dissipate the heat from whatever powers the "sun"'s heat. (Probably steam, why not combine the two, they use the same lights at different intensities for sun/stars after all.) The drains we see were either to allow it to rain, or to catch condensed steam. I suspect it's rain because you'd need to use inverted water to get rain to fall on Aiga.

I believe it was the inverted people of Aiga that made the ceiling, since Patema's people didn't seem to know about it, even the chief or Porta. If they had, combined with the fact Porta saw Patema falling into the sky with Age, they should have figured out she might have survived. (This does, however, raise a serious question of who maintains the workings of the sun/clouds/rain/etc. in the ceiling. Maybe there's another group of scientist descendants on that side of the big cavern Aiga is in.)

Watched still confused myself, if there was actually a 50/50 split of people where is everyone that went up?

We saw the bottom of the dug out earth and yet all that remained was somehow fully function rain, storm and day/night cycle along with it all being powered so there has to be a population decently sized but no one there noticed the giant 2 ton carriage crashing into a building?

The real earth is also apparently abandoned which should have had generations of people from the letter stating they would be there around the central hole but not a single person even looks like they habituated the buildings.

It only appears that only the people near the core survived for some reason. Also it's pretty impressive that no one else got that email memo saying they're perfectly fine and the ones that who were actually inverted didn't get told that...

I believed that the controlling oppressive leaders who seem to be the normal ones are the actually inverted ones aka 'Age'. Patema who is what I think are the original humans, lived in the crust of 'Earth', and so under the crust are: empty space , Aiga, people and finally the ceiling.

Now, at the end of the movie, Patema's people discovers the world outside the crust. It means that all along they were living inside the 'Earth'! Therefore anyone who gets sucked towards the ceiling(iron/steam punk place where Age's dad's 'flying machine was') are actually people with the correct gravitational pull. This can be reinforced as on the outside world ( the world at the end ) had living organisms ( the birds ), water, a moon, weather and nature.

Furthermore, explaining that ceiling is simple. The ceiling is the core of the 'Earth' which also acts like the day/night cycle, this is because in real life gravity pulls us towards the centre/core of the Earth so I can relate this to the anime world. However I can't explain how it got there but i do have a hypothesis: It was built by the ancestors of Patema's kind which explains why it is in the middle of the globe.

About the buildings claimed to had flew to the sky, I'm not sure, maybe it was a myth? or actually the ancestors where inverted's'.


What happened to the governor? (supreme leader/the guy with the golden Luger)

Well, bad guys with bad ends right? Yeah, he must of died in space, burst into mince due to vacuum pressure or died from no oxygen or even died from radiation. That guy totally deserved it LOL.


In conclusion, the discovery of a new world was significant. Now they probably live on the surface of the crust, developing a new society. Oh yeah, people of Aiga could also live on the surface but they will need those yellow weights Lagos carried.
