"This is the version I own so I don't really have any other versions to compare it to but....that's not the point. The point is that if you're reading this review you're an anime fan and if you haven't seen this anime then go see it, and once you see it buy whatever version of it looks nicest on your shelf.

If you like Grave of the Fireflies think of this along the same lines...really sad but really amazing. Honestly the episodes aren't too long...there's only 13 of them but this anime does more in 13 episodes than most typically do in 26 and with an amazing musical score, great voice acting and a powerful story it's perfect for your growing shelf of anime epics.

Hopefully this review helps you consider it!"
An anime classic that was almost forgotten...

"Now and Then, Here and There was currently licensed by Central Park Media, which has been defunct since early 2009.

I've been wanting to purchasethe old release for a loooong time, but didn't want to buy it for more than it was worth, so waited for it to get cheaper, then I learned that ADV Films rescued this gem...

A boy lives in a town is a very fierce kendo player, after leaving his match behind (which didn't go too well...), he sees a quiet, lonely girl who he takes an instant liking to. She gets ambushed by soldiers from the future who claim that she is something special...

I know. It sounds VERY generic... However, the first episode is probably the lightest and least oppressive episode out of the entire series!

After being transpoted, he learns that he is in hell. And, of course, I don't mean a fantasy hell, I mean a vicious, harsh, deceitful place where humanity are practically monsters. For whatever reason the girl traveled to the past, is explained just within the first episode...

So what does the boy do? He gets captured, and is coerced into doing what the other child soldiers do. Kill. Kidnap. Rinse and Repeat. The boy lives from a different era so he resists the orders by never giving in. NEVER.

The first half of the story focuses on how the world works, as well as show you other characters that are just as strong, and equally moving as our hero. Eventually, he is emprisoned again for defying them too long, and he uses his wits and training to break himself and the girl he promised, out of there.

This takes us to my favorite episode: #8, which shows us why the girl is the way she is, and why she'll only trust the boy. By the end of the episode, they are forever bonded by a force that can't be described as just romance. It's much more than that, and it shows throughout the rest of the series.

I'll stop at the story here, so I won't ruin the plot, and so you'll enjoy it better.

The presentation is at a 4:3 aspect ratio, which suits the slightly aged appearence of the series.
The audio is both English and Japanese stereo. The old boxset/releases claimed to have English 5.1, which is no longer here. But since I haven't seen that release I, personally can't complain.

The extra's include storyboards, which are nice, ADV trailers, and one of the best closing animation/songs ever...

Now and Then, Here and There is a short, sweet tale of war, the future, bonds, heart, and an impression that will stick with you..."
Emotionally Gripping

"I first watched this series with a friend many many years ago when we rented it. I never thought I would be buying it to watch again since it made me want to cry so much but here I am, proud to add it to my collection. It's a story of a honest but somewhat clumsy boy brought to another world wrecked by war and trauma. It's a short, not very well known anime, but one that definitely leaves an impact. The subject of children and war, portrayed realistically within this science fiction setting, can effect you emotionally. Don't pick this anime for laughs or an easy-going adventure - I couldn't even say that there is any comic relief. It sometimes left that pit in your stomach when the soft credits come by. I definitely believe it to be a small gem among anime."
Now and Then Here and There - Recomended

"A very good, fun yet very emotional work. I ordered it and received it with in the specified time, watched the whole thing right away. Now and Then, Here and There is a very powerful story that that hits on many very emotional points. The story is great the visuals are just as great if not better. I defiantly recommend this peice to anyone who likes the action/'Pre-Apocalypse' genre anime.

The product came packaged as advertised, and for a very nice price. This is the entire series of Now and Then, Here and there, all 13 episodes."
