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!

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.

This is a title I expected a lot from - adapted from a well received Manga and directed by Fumihiko Sori who was involved with acclaimed Anime films such as Appleseed, I was hoping for a thought provoking and immersive Science-Fiction story. Unfortunately though it didn't quite deliver.

This is a condensed version of the manga, rather than containing all 19 of the original stories it picks out 2, each lasting around 45 minutes. The first story looks at a strained reunion between Dan and Maria, they are old flames who have become distanced by age. Maria has been biologically 'frozen' as she travels, the result is that she is remains quite young whereas Dan has aged. This was an opportunity for an exploration into the effects their differences have had on how they feel about each other, set to a backdrop of a terrorist attack there is even more scope for an involved story - but it never happens. It feels like lazy story-telling, it never really delves below the action of what you see other than some cursory on-screen tension. The second story has more success but is still far from great sci-fi. Set some years beyond the first, spores on a newly discovered planet are found to have unexpected qualities and again, there is a difficult romance which is occasionally quite moving.

As this is set in space you expect space-craft and thankfully that is one area where 2001 Nights excels itself - they look spectacular and as they turn or the viewpoint sweeps across, the 3D animation renders the physics of the movement well and they look almost photorealistic.
