Memories and The Cockpit follow the same formula, and focus on the mental stage of the main characters as well as the circumstances they find themselves in.

The difference is that 'The Cockpit' is historic and 'Memories' is sci-fi.

Talk about odd character designs for mid-twentieth century fighter pilots! From the semi-comical look of some of the characters in The Cockpit to the, well, pig-faced protagonist of Porco Rosso, either anime - set before or during World War II - makes an odd but similar choice. While Cockpit veers more towards melodrama and angst (apparently war is depressing - who knew?), both titles also have a love of flying and give a fair bit of detal to their machines.

When the Amatsukami catch wind of this, they assault the del Moral residence, targeting Juana's life. As a last-ditch effort to bring the prince his bride, the San Maltilia Airforce employs a mercenary of mixed blood—a bestado—to fly Juana to the prince in secret.
