Tita Mu Koshigaya is a young woman who captains a ship, the Cha-Cha Maru, whose business is capturing exotic creatures in the 'sea of clouds' of the planet Ietta, and selling them to collectors and zoos. By chance, she saves Elysse Aldo Mordish, a young woman of her own age, from a rogue faction of Ietta's own military forces, led by the armored commander Guizel, who already killed Elysse's scientist father. As the military conducts a vicious chase for Elysse, it becomes apparent that she holds the key to a secret that could determine the fate of the entire planet's independence.Written by

The frame-rate is very high, unlike some anime where you can count the frames. The sheer amount of colors used is mind-boggling: They used about four different shades of color for the characters eyes! The movement of the characters and the amount of detail in the drawings is excellent. Satoshi Urushihara's character designs have never been done justice in anime form until this. However, the story is woefully incomplete: watching it, I got the feeling that the budget ran out and they had to hurry the last ten minutes of the film. The comic version (written and illustrated by Urushihara) is a much better version of the story. Still, if you want stunning visuals, you can't do much better than this (well, except Akira, of course).
