  • All yalls are haters
    If you don't like this story. Ever been in love and not be able to see that person? Feels is what this got. Anyone with an aota of sentiment can see it. Sure, technically it isnt as pretty as other pro stuff out there, but given this was basically made by one guy, you better step off and shut it.

  • Really a lovely short in concept
    This sweet and tragic short was moving indeed, and I have to recommend it on that basis. I really enjoyed it.

    The animation and overall design, however, was really lacking, and I found it not only disappointing but distracting. It's apparent that the budget for this short was minuscule, and that's truly unfortunate. The heart that's in it, though - miles and miles of it - makes up for the weak ...

  • Bring A Tissue...Or Maybe A Tissue Box
    While it didn't grab my interest or pull me in as much as other series have done, this still is a great emotional rollercoaster. I mean, if you want a love tragedy, it can't get much better than this. You have the woman leaving while the man just waits on earth for her return. While the pacing is quite slow and not exciting, this is great if you want to play with your emotions!

    Shinkai can truly do no wrong.
    While perhaps his weakest movie, that is in no way degrading to this movie. It is simply a testament to how incredible his other works are. Voices of A Distant Star is a story of love and loss and is beautiful in every way. The relationships are real and heart-wrenching.

    Wowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwzers.
    Mother of ballsack this anime was so bad I would have rather made myself puke for 25 minutes then watch that. Scenery wasn't bad, drawing was okay but the girl reminded me of a chicken. Had this been about chickens flying to space and leaving their soulmate behind to rot on earth and die, slowly I may add, waiting 8 years on a single message. Why did he not just move on and got some other tail. ...

    wonderful concept. some small nitpicks
    The concept here is very original and although maybe a crash-course on Einstein's laws of relativity might help you understand what's happening, if you get it then it's kind of heartbreaking.

    The landscape art is beyond stellar, and although the character design is lacking, this was made in 2002 by one guy on a laptop... so give him some credit!

    my biggest problem is a problem i have with ...

    Complex and Compelling
    The pure, wondrous details offer an artistic backdrop for the eye as the mind grasps the highs and lows of an intriguing tale of the changes that occur as well as the friendships that endure through a lifetime.

    It was ok but not really the best.
    I couldn’t really get the story line much, it didn’t really explain much and I think it just points the the novel and manga for more information though I have no clue if they actually say more. It feels like a pilot to something that could have been rather then a real show. Sadly, it’s hard to get a real feel for this. It’s a lot about romance which doesn’t seem to work with mechas. There isn’t ...
