Sakasama no Patema: Beginning of the Day

Sakasama no Patema: Beginning of the Day

Bored with her claustrophobic underground world, Princess Patema explores the danger zones where terrifying creatures called Batmen reportedly lurk. One day she discovers a huge shaft that disappears into the darkness above and below. After an encounter there with one of the Batmen, Patema finds herself in a topsy-turvy world unlike anything she has seen before and forced to come to grips with a solitary boy, Age, who has, from her point of view, a very surprising outlook upon things.

The setting of Sakasama no Patema really reminded me of the world in Pale Cocoon. Both settings involve a dystopic future where certain parts of the world are simply off-limits and considered too dangerous to enter. And in both, the protagonists are tempted into exploring the unfamiliar by mysterious pictures of blue sky and green land, drawing new conclusions about their worlds of origin.

The beautiful, strange, sci-fi apocalyptic world with a side of young telegenic characters exploring it... well, that could describe either of these works by Yoshiura. If you enjoyed his first feature film Patema Inverted, try Pale Cocoon, the short that made his name - or vice versa!

Both these shows deal with the same topic albeit in very different ways. Pale Cocoon is a serious approach to human isolation and curiosity about the world outside 'before the event', whereas BoPS is a comedy based on the same premise of trying to solve the riddle of what happened to the world.Might be worth trying one if you liked the other despite their different tones.

Both of these anime feature future archivists opening and going through old files of the past. In one, the archivists are a pair of computer programs, where as the other is a worker in the excavation sector. Both sets feel some attachment to the files they open, even if they don't really know why. There's a bit of mystery, some thrills, and some stuff I can't say with spoiling it for you. While one is bright and colorful while the other is more noir, but that's just packaging for two very similar stories.
