Critic Reviews for Ôritsu uchűgun Oneamisu no tsubasa (Royal Space Force - Wings of Honneamise)
The Wings of Honneamise: Royal Space Force showcases the strengths and weaknesses of Japanese adult-oriented animation...
Ambitious and daring in its seamless melding of color, depth and detail.
Its deliberately paced, meandering storyline demands extraordinary patience.
It is these visions, and the narrative, which also has a strong religious subplot, that make the program so compelling, a work of fantasy that is designed to make you think and contemplate. The artwork is outstanding
While there are but a few action sequences, they are spectacularly rendered and made doubly exciting due to the emotional involvement generated by the rest of the film.
Audience Reviews for Ôritsu uchűgun Oneamisu no tsubasa (Royal Space Force - Wings of Honneamise)
Great animation for the time and the steam-punk themed world is pretty cool, it's just a shame that the story is a dreary, long-winded, directionless slog. There's being poetic, and then there is just being plain pretentious.More
