Never saw it, I wonder if this anime has anything to do with this:
http://myanimelist.net/manga/1736/Route_20
Similar name, not sure of the plot/content/etc.

Now that I looked at it, this pilot was actually made two years earlier than the manga. Hmm.

For me, this is as important for the history of anime as any other short Gainax has ever produced. Have been made, it could have been a classic, more so having a genius such as Mahiro Maeda in the direction, one can't even begin to imagine what could have been accomplished. A real shame.

If it is somehow related to that shitty Sadamoto manga, however, I think I prefer it that way.

That was ok, nothing special. Looked like a lot of futuristic mororcylcle anime mixed with Black Jack. Idk if I would have wanted to see that as a movie. Maybe it if had less still shots I would like it more.

The music of The Doors and the art of Sadamoto go really well together.
This could be a masterpiece, its a shame they never did the film.

Not sure about a masterpiece, but didn't looked bad at all. Actually, could have been pretty good.

About the manga... Maybe someone got the idea from the project of the movie and made a manga? If the story isn't the same, should be based on it at the very least.

[3/5]

Good ol' Gainax.
Would have been interesting as a movie.
