Product Description

Join the acclaimed director, Fumihiko Sori (Vexille, Ichi) and the producers of Appleseed and Halo Legends for an epic journey to the stars told across two stunning sci-fi fables. A crew returns home after 15 years in space. While they have only aged by two years, everyone they know is now fifteen years older. One hundred years have passed and mankind presses on ever deeper into the solar system. But far from establishing a new world order in space, man has brought the same old rivalries and conflicts with him. A war erupts as the race to colonize a new Earth intensifies.

5.0 out of 5 stars not as bad as the other reviews say! 20 Jan 2013
By A. Frej
Format:Blu-ray
Just adding this review to counter balance the bad mouthing of initial reviews. I don't know where or what you have seen but CGI in this movie is excellent and crisp - proper blu ray quality. The stories are good, I liked especially the first one. The animation is on a very high level. Rating this a 1 out of 5 is very misleading. It may not be the top class, but it definitely deserves a positive rating!

4.0 out of 5 stars CG animation - the Final Frontier 12 Sep 2011
By Keris Nine TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
The original manga 2001 Nights by Yukinobu Hoshino, published in English translation by Viz in 1990, was a collection of science-fiction stories based around the expansion of humanity into space following a technological Great Advance. Although each of the stories were standalone, collectively they considered the necessity of humanity leaving behind old beliefs and attitudes in order to flourish in a new environment, face the possibility of extraterrestrial life, colonise new worlds and face other unknown challenges. It takes a while for humanity to adapt, but the insights gained, the ideas explored and the discoveries made through the stories managed to be intelligent as well as thrilling space adventures.

Adapting only two of the dozen or so stories, 'Elliptical Orbit' and 'Symbiotic Planet', Fumihiko Sori nonetheless manages to faithfully capture the flavour of Yukinobu Hoshino's original series in 'To'. The two stories don't perhaps give a sense of some of the more ambitious themes of the stories relating to religion, antimatter and the seeding of planets, but as an introduction, the two stories adapted here have a good balance between ideas and SF action. Originally drawn in a much more realistic style than the typical manga series, it's appropriate also that Sori brings the 3D CG and motion capture techniques used in Appleseed and Vexille to 'To', the detail of the vast spaceships, the creation of planetary landscapes and the fluid movement of animation all working perfectly with the deep space settings.
