YesAsia Editorial Description

Wonderful Days offers ambitious entertainment at its best! The blockbuster sci-fi animation was produced with a colossal budget of approximately 13 billion won and is the most expensive Korean futuristic drama to date.

In the film, the Earth has deteriorated into a murky hell due to an environmental disaster by the year 2142. An elite race of humans has built a floating, fortified city called Ecoban that converts the surrounding pollution into energy. Meanwhile, hordes of downtrodden survivors subsist outside the city in sprawling hovels under perpetually dark and cloudy skies. Threatened by falling pollution, the Ecoban leadership hatches the dastardly plan of wrecking the world beyond the city to secure energy. The story expounds on the love triangle of three characters - Ecoban security officer Jay, resistance fighter Shua and Ecoban security chief Simon - as they struggle to find happiness on their stormy planet.

Fusing traditional 2-D animation, 3-D computer animation, miniatures and live action photography of rain or fog, the pioneering melange of technology used in Wonderful Days generates an uncanny, stimulating atmosphere with a depth and weight never before seen in Korean animation. The groundbreaking imagery aside, Wonderful Days cleverly combines elements of action and romance while exploring a philosophical and emotional terrain. Vaguely religious references from both Buddhism and Christianity enhance the solemn and apocalyptic mood without being overly didactic.

You must buy this! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
This is the uncut version of "Wonderful Days". The animation is superb and the story is complex as deals with how society adapted to a polluted world and lost its humanity in the process. Human relationships mirror the relationship with the environment.

The video transfer is superb. The rain and water effects in this title were godly. The audio (Dolby version) is also wonderful.

Lots of love went into making this movie and it is shown with all the extras that come with this edition, including the menus.

A definite "must have" for any animation collection.

Excellent movie ^_^ Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I loved this movie so much I had to grab the limited edition and the soundtrack. I know another person who wrote a review had trouble with the l.edition with a 2 second skip, but I took the chance and bought it and it was fine.

So for the bit extra I recommend this one! The extra stuff is all in Korean without subbies to help you out, but you can still appreciate all the work they show you without translation. The movie itself has the extra scenes in it, and sometimes explains things a bit better because of that.

Wont jabber on too long, good buy, must see movie. Shame it couldn't come to theatres worldwide. *cries*

The only review that matters!! Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
[Animation:] The animation is truly ground-breaking. A perfect combination of 2D, 3D, & real-life miniatures mixed seamlessly to deliver a world you have to see to believe. [Sound & Subtitles:] The sound effects are spectacular & the music is as beautiful as the visuals. This DVD supports DTS & Dolby Digital 5.1. The English subtitles are excellent, no grammatical errors here. [Story & Characters:]First of all there aren't any plot holes. The story is told in a way a spider weaves a web, except this time, the spider starts from the outside & works its way into the center. The story is one about hope & the passion that the characters share in a time of desperate need. The story is more clear than confusing. [Packaging & Extras:]The DVD case is held inside an attractive holographic casing. Disc 1 -Unless you are very fluent in Korean the commentary track is useless. Disc 2 - If you can read Korean & understand it very fluently, this disc has plenty to offer. If your like me and can't speak or read any Asian language this disc still has extras like a massive gallery slideshow which features concept art, sketches, etc. It also has some promotional material such as various "Wonderful Days" trailers, music video, stills. I highly recommend this to any animation buff or casual.

Excellent Movie - Flawed L.O.E. Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
Everything about this movie is great. The only thing that was lacking is the story line but given the circumstances the writers did a good job with what they had to work with.

The only reason why I returned the Limited Original Edition was because it has a manufacture's defect. It is near the end about an hour into it when the Kid gets hurt. The movie skips for 2 seconds. While it is not a big deal it is distracting enough to take away from the movie. So I bought the regular limited edition instead free of the defect. I hope they fix this problem.

A great Anime.. may lack a plot Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
An amazing DVD. The Animation is good but can lack fluid smooth moments. The moment I heard about this Korean Anime I checked it out. Reviews and such told me a great anime but lacks a plot.I bought and watched it and it was amazing. The plot needs a little work and the motions aren't always fluid but let's face it nothing is perfect. Koreans CAN make anime.
