Editorial Reviews

Elliptical Orbit: Fifteen years after its last contact with our world, a space freighter known as the Flying Dutchman requests permission to dock at a remote moon base. This mysterious ship carries liquid protons: a power source essential to the survival of Earth’s population. But before the precious cargo can be delivered, the base is ambushed by galactic terrorists who seek to destroy the new form of energy and issue a death sentence to all of humanity.

Symbiotic Planet: Against a backdrop of peculiar alien life forms, Aon and Elena – star-crossed lovers from rival countries – struggle to build a life together despite the objections of their superiors. Their budding romance is thwarted by an outbreak of potent alien fungus and the interference of a cutthroat militaristic madman. To survive, the young couple must maintain their faith in each other – and learn to trust the unique creatures which inhabit this strange and wondrous planet.

Customer Reviews

I would give it a 2.5/5 if I could.
Ben
This sounds interesting and might work in the mangas (haven't read them), but it doesn't in this "movie".
Nils
The problem is the character animation which almost looks cell shaded.

I viewed this two episode set without any prior knowledge. I also saw it in hi-def Blue Ray. The animation did remind me of Final Fantasy. But, what I found fascinating is the plot line of the first story. It was all quite plausible based upon physics of the real world. That is why the comparison to Moonlight Mile is quite true. I loved Moonlight Mile and I thoroughly enjoyed To. I find it curious that people compare this with Vexille. The story lines are quite different from that anime and Vexille in my opinion is a totally fictitious storyline and could not realistically happen in the future. The other reviews are critical of To, but what I really enjoyed was not the animation, but the story. Yes, the clunky animation was distracting at times, but once I got deeply involved in the storyline, that was the least on my mind. I loved to read Author C Clarke and his science fiction which was based upon science facts and have all of his books. The only thing that I was disappointed in was that there were only two episodes. The first 12 episode part of Moonlight Mile is the only thing that I have seen that is equal to To in terms of stories that can really happen in the future. Planetes has also been mentioned and I agree with this assessment of realism. As far as satisfaction in viewing realistic sci-fi anime I would rank Moonlight Mile first, To 1st episode second and Planetes third. This is based upon how many times I can or want to see the anime again. I have rewatched Moonlight Mile at least 3 times with different friends. I plan to see To again at least two more times, again with two of these same friends. I have no desire to watch Planetes again and I have started that anime twice, but stopped watching after the first two episodes, due to my friends' annoyance of the primary female character. I should add that two of the friends I view these anime and myself are over the age of 50yrs old. To was worthy of adding to my video collection.

I love the Appleseed and Vexille films so I was excited to see this two part feature. I was slightly disappointed because the animation was pretty poor. I would give it a 2.5/5 if I could. If you never saw Appleseed or Vexille, go get those instead.. much better!

Picked it up at a big box store before there were any amazon reviews, bit of a mistake there.

Animation very dated, looks like it pre-dates Appleseed and the Final Fantasy movies actually. Music track sounds like it was created on someone pc not done by a studio. The idea for the story and voice acting is only reason I give it two stars. You could compress it down to a 20 minute episode and it would still feel too long though.

As a casual anime purchaser, I have to say I was expecting more from this collection. I really enjoyed Vexille and the Appleseed movies, which sport the same aesthetic appeal. However, TO has little by way of replay value. Think of something like the Animatrix or Batman: Gotham Knight, but limit the experience to two short stories. The stories are not connected by anything more than time and setting. Everything offered on the discs feels abbreviated, including the extras.

While the stories are interesting, I could only recommend this to anime fans looking for something a bit different with expendable cash. This is a better rental than something to add to your collection.

I'm a big fan of highly detailed Sci-Fi anime. I loved Moonlight Mile and Planetes so I picked this up right away. I liked the story with the twist ending which I won't spoil here. I also enjoyed the detail in the background animation. The problem is the character animation which almost looks cell shaded. There's no real facial expression so the characters look and stiff and wooden. It's very distracting and ruins the viewing experience. If you're curious try to find a trailer or watch the first episode. Not for everyone to be sure.
