Synopsis


Origin: Spirits of the Past
The anime fantasy opus Origin: Spirits of the Past commences with a backstory prologue set in an ancient era, when the moon awakened the forest and unleashed a terrible, destructive beast upon the Earth. As the story proper opens, the landscape of the world has changed immeasurably. Mankind is divided into two warring factions: one that seeks a peaceful, harmonious balance with the forest, and another that wishes to dominate and control it. Agito, the young hero of the story, unwittingly triggers the destruction of all that lies before him by awakening Toola from her slumber. Agitated at the degree to which civilization has changed, Toola summons an eons-old technology to rebuild the future based on the design of a past civilization. Agito then seeks the forest's blessing before attempting to rescue the girl from her own destructive desires. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi

    This is a great movie. Many say that this movie as stolen its plot from various other animes, but thats OK. Its a great anime movie overall. The music throughout the movie was great. The animation was extremely smooth elegant and it was insanely detailed. There were some scenes where you wonder how someone can be that detailed. The only thing is i wish it was a little bit longer so there can be more character depth. The special edition really makes an impact, the package the 2 discs are in are 100% recycled matieral and it has great artwork inside and outside the box. Thanks for reading hope this helps.

    This film was an all-around solid production. If you are a fan of most ainme, then you will enjoy this. The animation quality is great, the score is like that of the Miyazaki films. The voice acting could have been a bit better, but it was not bad by any means. Very much like a Studio Ghibli film. I would watch it again.
