YesAsia Editorial Description

The Voices of a Distant Star (2002)
Before going on to become one of Japan's most celebrated animation filmmakers, Shinkai Makoto caught the attention of the industry with his animated shorts. Released in 2002, the OVA short film Voices of a Distant Star is an early work that sets Shinkai Makoto's style of sci-fi, youth romance and beautiful animation. Set in the future, the story follows childhood sweethearts Mikako and Noboru who are separated after Mikako gets recruited into the UN Space Army to fight in a war against aliens. The two communicate through email on their mobile phones, but as Mikako heads farther and farther into space, their emails take longer and longer to reach other.

The Place Promised in Our Early Days (2004)
Shinkai Makoto makes his first feature-length film with the ambitious fantasy romance The Place Promised in Our Early Days. The sci-fi espionage romance takes place in an alternate reality in which Japan has been split into two - one occupied by the United States and one occupied by the Soviet Union – and it follows three childhood friends who become part of a major civil war between the two Japans. Hiroki, Takuya, and Sayuri are teenagers living in Aomori, located at the northern edge of the formerly US-occupied Southern Japan. Every day, they look north at the Soviet-occupied Northern Japan and the mysterious Hokkaido Tower. One day, Hiroki and Takuya find a crashed drone plane, and they start to restore it with hopes of flying it to Hokkaido Tower with Sayuri. However, Sayuri suddenly disappears long before the plane is done. Three years later, Hiroki and Takuya – still haunted by Sayuri's disappearance – have parted ways, with one continuing high school in Tokyo and the other working as a physicist in a project funded by the American government. When Takuya gets involved with an underground group aiming at the reunification of Japan, he discovers that Sayuri is now taking part in research involving the Hokkaido Tower in the north...

<구름의 저편, 약속의 장소>

“계속 너를 찾고 있었어!”
2차 세계대전 이후 일본은
‘미일 연합군’과 미국과 전면전에 나선 ‘유니온’,
두 권력으로 나뉘어 통치되었다.

‘유니온’이 점령한 ‘에조’에 사는 ‘히로키’와 ‘타쿠야’, 그리고 ‘사유리’는
보란듯이 자리잡은 드높은 탑에 매료되기 시작한다.
이 탑의 미스터리를 파헤치기 위해 비행기를 만들던 어느 날
‘사유리’가 갑자기 사라지게 되는데…

꿈 속에서 만나는 잃어버린 첫사랑의 조각!

<별의 목소리>

중학생인 나가미네 미카코와 테라오 노보루는 서로 좋아하는 사이다. 그러나 미카코는 국제 연합군 선발대 멤버가 되고, 노보루는 고등학교에 진학한다. 미카코와 노보루 각자 지구와 우주에서 휴대 메일을 통해 서로 연락을 주고 받지만 우주군 전함 리시테아호가 목성 에우로파 기지를 경유해 태양계 안쪽으로 향하면서 메일이 왕복하는 시간은 길어진다. 노보루는 초조하게 미카코의 메일을 손꼽아 기다리며 지낸다. 이윽고 리시테아 함대가 워프를 실시하자, 미카코와 노보루의 시간은 엇갈리는데...

Bought this a while ago, but.. Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
I bought this 2 years ago, but didn't review.

This is actually my favorite film by Makoto. The music is beautiful and the story told touches the heart. The art is simply beautiful and I love the complex parts of the plot. It mixes many genres like sc-fi, romance, and mystery.

It's Makoto at his best and I recommend this to anyone. ^_^

Long and tedious Customer Review Rated Bad 7 - 7 out of 10
I purchased this after watching the amazing 'Voices of a Distant Star' and had high expectations of this movie. Once again the creators merge science fiction with romance. However, the reviewer feels that the creators are less successful this time round.
Whereas 'Voices' was only 30 minutes long, 'Place Promised' is a whole 90 minute movie length. The movie feels tedious and is very slow moving. I feel that the movie may be better if it was shorter in length. The relationship between the main characters are less striking this time round. Thankfully, the soundtrack and artwork is still of very high quality.
Overall, it is a very decent anime, but the magic simply isn't working in this second attempt. Better luck next time.

Nice! Customer Review Rated Bad 9 - 9 out of 10
Bought it with Voice of the Distant Stars. This one is less better than the Voice of the Distant Stars. In my opinion, you should buy two together 'cause it's similar story line except the other one is base on alien invasions and this one is alternate realities. The meaning of this one is less better than the Voice of the Distant Stars because it's too long and it can be boring with the story.
