I just ran across this on youtube and don’t recall knowing anything about it before. I guess there’s a Fantastic Planet connection as well, but this is a more elaborate production, or at least by more standard animation criteria. Quite amazing for something seemingly so obscure.
Few aesthetic parallels to Panzer Dragoon, but tons of very subtle echoes of the story revealed in Azel. Also a lot of parallels to other games and stories, I was seriously reminded of the characterization of the Necrons from Warhammer 40k for example.
Anyway while it’s still up there figured I’d give a link for anyone interested, and maybe give a warning of some imagery that may offend delicate sensibilities for form’s sake.
