3.) Akihiko Hirata (Dr. Inoue Ryutarou)

Japanese science fiction, whether live-action or anime, is something of great interest for me for their introduction of giant robots and monsters into the international market. Sayonara Jupiter, on the other hand, is a film influenced by both Star Wars and 2001, and is a local competitor to 2010, which contains a plot element of transforming a gas giant into a new star (but no monoliths). That storyline excited me as I liked future space travel and how real science could influence the action, while at the same time I felt a sex scene cut to a fantasy sequence deemed unnecessary for me. Here the special effects (SFX) look real to me when it comes to the model spaceships and the scenery of the planets; I'm surprised that Toho, the studio also behind the Godzilla series, was responsible for doing all the great model-based spacey and action stuff here! You'll enjoy the film if you like either or both sci-fi and/or Japanese films.
Enjoyably fun for those who already enjoy such things.
