In the future after much of the world has been devastated by nuclear and biological warfare, a young scavenger or 'Junker' exploring a quarantined and abandoned city comes across a service robot still faithfully awaiting customers in the rooftop planetarium of a department store. Against his pragmatic instincts he helps the robot repair the planetarium's projector: a decision which will change both their fates.
This is a very good movie, have not cried so hard in a long time. I read the visual novel about 2 years ago, and while a good story, was a bit bad on pacing. I was surprised they made an anime about it, and trimmed a lot of it down while staying true to the story. Tearful but good. Later they made THIS movie which was essentially a re-hash and continuation about what happens after the planetarium. In general someone could skip the first as most of it is covered in here. The entire story is very well down from the innocence of the character, to the hopelessnes of the world. A lot of little details become relevant as well. Highly recommended - and I am normally a fan of seinens like berserk etc.
The whole Planetarian anime franchise feels like a broken record player that's stuck on repeat mode. The movie follows the same formula as the OVAs, and web episodes. The scenes are reused too much. Those "high ratings" are for an anime franchise that repeats the same story and settings over and over again. It's like listening to the same melody and song with the same constant beats, verses, rhymes, choruses, and rhythms over and over again. It's the same apocalyptic and sci-fi setting where Yumemi and human kind is faced with abandoned cities full of the wrecked remains of biological and nuclear warfare. Even when the city is deserted, Yumemi stays to fulfill her job as the guide to the Planetarian. She gives lectures and educates people on the wonders of the planetarian. She has a lot of fond, tender, and heartwarming moments of sharing pleasant experiences with the guests and scientific team that stayed in the planetarian. Yumemi is a warm, and friendly android. She can speak robotic language but she is also very cheerful and upbeat some times. Her main job is to give lectures at the planetarian, and educating the guests. She also helps promote the planetarian and pass out fliers. Overall, the movie did introduce new characters to expand the story but I still feel like the story has a very limited scope. It reuses scenes too much. But people might enjoy this show if they enjoy mecha and sci-fi settings where humanity is at the brink of destruction, and struggling to survive in the damaged remains. There's brief romance as well. My enjoyment is a 3/10 at this point for the Planetarian franchise. I enjoyed watching a charming android trying her hardest to promote a deserted planetarian. But I got bored watching and following the same story over and over again.
Preface: This movie has pretty much all ONA scenes + more, I suggest just watching this movie.Satisfying Conclusion?✔️Emotional?✔️Actual Romance?❌Actual Comedy?❌Fanservice/Nudity? ❌What is this anime?A scavenger in a post-apocalyptic world stumbles upon an android somehow still functioning. With nowhere to go for the night, he stays with the android who works in a planetarian.Did I enjoy it?It was a nice watch. The android acts... like an android. Some shows that have androids make it so they look and interact just like a human. However this android acts like you'd imagine one to act. There are parameters it doesn't go outside of. It does the same thing every day. However, this doesn't detract from the show, and shows us that it doesn't need to be on human levels of reasoning to make an impact on our MC's life. The movie adds in scenes to the ONA where the scavenger is in the future. It gets emotional so bring your tissues. With the way that it ended, at first I was angry that it didn't conclude differently. But after thinking about it, it is perhaps the best ending this show could have come up with. Give it a watch.
