Editorial Reviews

In this exhilarating series paying homage to classic 50’s era science fiction, the disappearance of revolutionary G-Reaction engines is but the beginning of the ghastly end for mankind. While deranged alien forces prepare a fleet of flying saucers for the invasion of all invasions, teenage geniuses Penny Carter and Billy Kimura join forces with a clandestine secret alliance to save humanity from the extra-terrestrial helmet worms and their tentacles of doom! Avoiding alien attacks and dodging disintegration rays won’t be easy, but these courageous kids will have help from above as Ace pilot James and his mentor Cpt. Clayton enter the fray to stave off a threat incomprehensible to mere mortals!

It's quite unlikely Funimation's re-release of Project Blue Earth SOS will cause much of a splash in the anime world as a whole but that isn't to suggest the title is to blame. In late 2008 word was released that Project Blue Earth would be one of over 30 ADV Films' titles transferred to Funimation Entertainment. The announcement not only proved Funimation's dedication to becoming a powerhouse player in the domestic anime DVD industry, it also hinted of the potential within titles that may have otherwise been overlooked.

Packaged in a single standard DVD case, Project Blue Earth SOS contains the complete animated series across two discs. Each disc contains three 45-minute episodes (which originally filled an hour slot in Japanese broadcast television with commercials). The total runtime comes in at 288 minutes.

The cover art of the set, the interior drawings, disc art and even the advertising campaign all hint heavily toward the 1950s era science fiction theme that the show very successfully emulates. I'll be honest, I went in to the series a bit skeptical not only because I'm fearful of such gimmicks in anime but also because 50's cinema has never been the epitome of realistic science fiction in my opinion.

The story is fairly straightforward; anyone who has enjoyed tales like War of the Worlds, The Day the Earth Stood Still, or Independence Day will delight. The earth is invaded by a malevolent and relentless race of alien intruders possessing technology far superior to our own. Earth has the foresight to create a top-secret organization with the purpose of intercepting any such potential threat.

The struggle presented is epic on a global scale and for the most part, it works surprisingly well.

Best show on what could happen during an alien invasion of Earth that I am aware of. The theme is a stockstandard one of the aliens have arrived to conquer the citizens of Earth and take over, and will do anything they can to achieve control of the world. The
story is well paced and absolutely laden with suspense and the seriousness of the dire situation the main characters face, as they try everything they can think of, to stop the invasion/takeover in time. There is a fair bit of bickering and arguing between them which was a bit much at times, but does convey well the tension of the events unfolding. Plenty of interesting ways are tried to save the day, won't plot spoil, see for yourself..Stellar animation quality and production values and thought provoking and gripping viewing that will have you watching the whole lot in one sitting! One I will see again, worth it.

Nice DVD movie. Just that it took so long to get. Other than that the movie was good. I really think its good that some people think that some kids can make decision as hard as in the movie.

I really enjoyed this 1950s/60s sci-fi -style anime. In many ways it is the anime version of the old TOM SWIFT series of kid's books complete with boy lead characters. The retrofuture artwork and music is very good in the SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF THE FUTURE/ LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN vein. The plot starts off strong but then wanders around a bit eventually coasting over the finish line, also like tthe two films just mentioned. To paraphrase a previous reviewer, while this is not quite THE INCREDIBLES, it might just be MONSTERS VS. ALIENS. Despite this, I thoroughly enjoyed this film and would recommend it to anyone. Now if they would just make another LAST EXILE, FULL METAL ALCHEMIST, or CODE GEASS, I would be happy.

I purchased several anime DVDs on a whim.... Project Blue Earth SOS is no exception. The classic `aliens attacking Earth' premise presented in a `modern retro' setting... with 2 youths rivaling
each other in science and theories (the rest withheld to avoid spoilers). Very entertaining. It took me back to the first `Astro Boy' series and Speed Racer.
