Area 88
This is a dated title and I've only managed to catch the first couple of epidsodes (what central park has released on DVD). Yet, it's definitely one of the better titles out there.

Like I said, the title is a little dated, and its reflected in the animation. However the story line and the character writing is extremeley compelling. If you're into planes, romances, or treachery, this title's for you!

The only other time I watched the whole in one sitting without dozing off is Titanic. And that is no mean feat. This is one of the most underated, underappreciated anime that I have ever seen. One of the best storylines that I have ever seen and the graphics are awesome, especially the dogfight scenes. Characters that you really cared about (except Kanazaki). Love, honor, betrayal, bitterness, vindictiveness,resolve, comraderie, friendship; it hasz it all for one complete emotional rollercoaster of a movie; including karma (Hey Nguyen, whatever comes around, goes around).
You have to really for Shin, especially when Kanazaki puts him through all the crap.
Kanazaki is the ultimate evil villain that any anime has ever created because this anime is more of a plausible situation where no magic, mecha, or other imaginary situation comes into place. I cannot believe that one person can really screw over a friendship, a woman's virtues, a corporation, and eventually, a country. But Kanazaki has really pulled it off in one fell swoop and paid the price for it (but not really). Personally, I really like to see him gets his due MD GEIST or Fist of the Northstar style. I met people like that and they paid a horribe price for their stupidity.
The ending gets unraveled at the end, but it was meant to be because there is no resolve to something as tragic as war, financial ruin, a suicide kamakazi mission, and finally and most importantly, love.

This movie has really moved me. I wish that all movies could be created as good as this.
