Product Description

In a world eerily similar to our own, war between the Kingdom of Honneamise and its archrival, The Republic, seems inevitable. But even as the two nations' rapidly evolving technology creates new ways to wage greater and more deadly forms of warfare, a small group seeks to use those same advances to propel mankind forward into the future and into space in their world's first manned spaceflight program.

For astronaut candidate Shirotsugh Lhadatt, it's not just a journey beyond the reach of the atmosphere, but a personal odyssey as he grows from an aimless young man into a leader willing to put everything on the line...

Contains both the dub (with the voice of Bryan Cranston) and original Japanese with subtitles. Extras include deleted scenes, original Japanese trailers and a 20 page booklet translated from the Japanese release.


Extras:

- Collector s packaging

- Deleted scenes

- Japanese trailer collection

- English trailer

Before GUNBUSTER (1988-1989), NADIA: THE SECRET OF BLUE WATER (1990-1991), the NEON GENESIS EVANGELION saga (1995-1997), FLCL (2000-2001) and GURREN LAGANN (2007), Studio GAINAX made ROYAL SPACE FORCE: THE WINGS OF HONNEAMISE (1987). The studio first started off as a group of animators who made short fan-made films for conventions. In the mid-80's, they decided to make an modest-budget OVA, but it soon evolved into a feature-length anime film with a budget of $8 million, making it (until the famous classic AKIRA [1988]) the most expensive animated film in Japan. Unfortunately, due to poor marketing from indecisive distributors, HONNEAMISE flopped financially and it took over half a decade before it found profit. The film critics, however, praised the movie and it did find an audience on home video. One thing HONNEAMISE did was brought everyone's attention to the talented animators of GAINAX.

And what is the story? Taking place on a planet that isn't Earth but similar, the film follows Shirotsugh 'Shiro' Lhadatt, a member of the ridiculed Royal Space Force, a team of wannabe pilots who are testing rockets but are regarded a joke by everyone else. One night, Shiro encounters Riquinni Nonderaiko, a young religious woman. Inspired by Riquinni's view of trying to get into space as a view of optimism in the times they currently living in, Shiro volunteers to be the first man into space, unaware that they are being use as a political pawn for a battle between different countries. At the same time, questions begin to rise - is the planned rocket launch a brave ambition or a waste of money and lives? Shiro finds himself as being popular, but is he really a hero?

What makes HONNEAMISE amazing is the detail that went into the animation.

Took a good while to arrive after I pre-ordered it but that was due to the release date being put back by the publishers... Was well worth the wait tho as it's a marvellous movie I've wanted for several years!!!

Honneamise is quite simply a masterpiece in hand drawn animation. Sadly often overlooked for the fact that it was released a year before Akira. I was delighted to hear it was finally getting a Blu Ray release and the folks at Anime Ltd have done an excellent job with this collector's edition.
