Archetypes Forces

Archetypes Forces
  • OVA (1 ep x 15 min)
  • 2002

It is the year 2124, and the crew of a medical transport ship are carrying dangerous cargo to its destination. The contents, though mostly unknown, are rumored to be viral in nature, and must not be let out under any circumstances. But when a leak occurs, the ship, as well as the crew, is at risk of being destroyed. With only two robotic space suits and limited ammo, can they escape in time, or are their fates sealed?

The fully cg animation and fast paced action of Archetypes Forces makes an interesting contrast with the experimental style and strong characterisation of Seikai no Danshou, in light of their similar spaceship setting. While both have an interest in telling a less than straightforward story, I'll leave you to decide which you think is more enjoyable.

Crest of the Stars

Crest of the Stars

In the distant future, mankind has mastered space and spread empires across the galaxy. While many choose to colonize distant planets, others choose to remain amidst the stars, ultimately giving rise to a new brand of humanity known as the Abh. Both genetically and culturally different from their Earth-dwelling peers, the Abh soon find themselves engaged in a bloody war that rages across hundreds of planets and set out to restore peace by means of conquest. Enter Jinto, a nobleman and ambassador of the recently acquired Hyde system whose duty is to represent his peoples' interests and rule on the Abh's behalf. In order to be officially coronated to this position, a cold-but-beautiful Abh princess named Lafiel arrives at Hyde to escort him back to the empire's capital. When they are suddenly attacked by an anti-Abh liberation front, however, the festivities are cut short, and the two must flee for their lives against all odds.

Though obviously part of the same sprawling cosmic saga, it is particularly relevant to watch Seikai no Monshou and Seikai no Danshou together. The bulk of both animes occurs over a relatively short time period, and are mainly focused on two central characters. Seeing the adventures of the two generations really helps give a feeling of the wider narrative.

Memories

Memories

This set of 3 fantastic stories will take you from the haunting delusions of a space explorer, to a bio-chemical threat with the power to wipe out all of Tokyo, and finally to a day in the life of a young boy who lives in a world ruled by cannons. These stores will capture you with their intriguing storylines and awe inspiring artwork.

Seikai no Danshou and the first story of Memories are both eerie tales of exploring vast, abandoned spaceships. While these are only a small part of the larger whole - Memories has another two unrelated stories, and Danshou is a small fragment of an epic space opera - the similar feel means you are bound to enjoy at least these sections.

Voices of a Distant Star

Voices of a Distant Star

Nagamine is a young high school student who lives a fairly typical teenage life: hanging out with friends, attending class, and falling in love with a wonderful boy. But when she enlists in the galactic army, who is desperate for candidates to fight an alien war, she finds herself drifting farther away from her first love, Noboru. In the depths of space, where a simple email takes eight years to be delivered, will their love truly flourish, or simply fade away?

Hoshi no Koe and Seikai no Danshou are both short, touching stories - focused as much on the relationships between the male and female leads as their interstellar backdrop. While the animation is rather different, both have an interest in experimenting, and you should enjoy their thoughtful tone.
