I can't believe no one started a topic on this movie!
I've been waiting for 23 years to find and finish this movie. This was very good and I am so glad that I got the chance to finally see it through to the finish.

Being a Sanrio film I was expecting Hello Kitty to come out. LOL

Joking aside, I thought in the end; "What a movie!". It's like a Romie and Juliet for kids, star crossed lovers dying in the end and all that. By the way, IMHO sending them to the star was like a token gesture for a belated happy ending, thanks a lot Oceanus! XP

Piale had to sacrifice herself and Chiku had to die, if I was watching this when I was a kid, I would be sad... or maybe it's just me getting old. XD And as I suspected, I recognized Amuro's VA from Mobile Suit Gundam, so that's why Sirius' voice was so familiar!

This movie gets 8/10 on my list and 5/5 for this discussion thread.

artwork was pretty fantastic for 1981. Music was also pretty lush. The can-can parts were especially Fantasia-esque

I found the characters surprisingly unlikeable though; Sirius seemed a sadistic pulls-legs-off-insects-for-fun sort and Malta was just a prick tease. Who showed no remorse for losing the flame that kept her people alive! Ditto Sirius and the eye.

Oddly I was hoping this wouldn't be a sickly Disney type of film but I kinda wish it was more like one in that respect! Disney also has more of a sense of danger, this had none besides some meaningless deaths (meaningless since there were no repercussions from *anything*) and I felt ripped off not seeing the Wind god come back...

beh, shouldn't be complaining about kids films but usually i can get into ones with this sort of scope

The environment and art was captivating. A nice little love story.

This movie was worth the watch. The art direction and colors were fantastic. The music was also nice. The storytelling and worldbuilding was interesting. The voice acting was a little off at times. The animation was pretty disney like. Maybe a little too cheesy, but still a nice little movie.

I love the end credits with the different artwork. This is the best Sanrio movie I have watched so far.

A nice fantasy take on Romeo&Juliet (or was it trying to replay the constellation lovers tale?) supported by pre-modern Disney designs, fine drawings and really pretty backgrounds. Music and voices were quite good too (nice to hear Furuya in such a movie).

I was never a fan of the disney character-design around the times of their Peter Pan (particularly the "bored" or sleepy eyes) but the rest was more than enough to distract me from the movie.

The animation might look a bit low since it can't compare with the movies it looks alike but it's actually good for a japanese animation.

Enjoyment: 4/5

Score: 7.5/10 A great tale for children, unlike most Disney who think their audience is dumb.
