Environmental Concerns

By Jeffrey M. Anderson

While the new anime Appleseed attempted to move into the 21st century by using computer technology to help render its hand-drawn characters (resulting in a creepy mixture), the South Korean Sky Blue does it right by using only computer-rendered backgrounds for its more organic, hand-drawn characters. The plot follows the usual guidelines: in a post-apocalyptic future, the elite live in a protected city called Ecoban, while poor refugees work, providing energy, in the unsafe environment outside. Of course, a girl who lives in Ecoban used to know a guy who works outside, and now the guy is about to lead a revolution that will destroy the city. While the story leaves something to be desired, and the film drags more than just a bit, the beautiful animation will keep die-hard anime fans occupied long enough. Moon Sang Kim directs, making his feature debut. Dubbed into English.
