Movie Reviews

Confusing but worth every minute

"The DVD covers the three OAV videos (OAV - 'original anime video' in Japan) that were a condensed version of a 14 book (manga) story. The videos were never meant to tell the story - they were only meant to cover some of the key points of the books for the thousands who fell in love with the "Please Save My earth" story in Japan.For those who haven't read the series, it may be a bit confusing - especially since story arcs in the videos are never explained or finished (3/4 of the whole story is not covered in the videos). However, the animation is very good and the story is exquisite - not to mention the haunting music at the end. This is my favorite of all my anime - a beautiful and wonderfully original love story. This is a DVD you will want to watch many times as you discover more about the story each time. Definitely not one you get bored of watching.I highly recommend it - just don't get frustrated by the lack of concrete ending. This journey is much more fun than the arrival."
Great story,,, only if it were completed,,,

"I read PSME in Japanese from comic books, then saw this movie. I was so excited to watch every episode, only to realize that this is not done completely! It ended just when all the interesting part of the story was about to evolve. I felt sad, but thinking that there must be another DVD for the later part. My hope turned into disappointment when I learnt that there was any more!!! I strongly recommend viewers to find a way to read comic books of PSME since the story is a lot deeper and more exciting."

"I have only watched it once in bad quality, because unfortunately it is so hard to find and i decided to wait for the dvd. Yet this is one of my favorite anime of all time. The art is simple but very beautiful, the music is awesome and fits the story wonderfully. And the story is where this one really shines its so sad and human yet somehow has this alien, unearthly feel to it. If you are interested in anime in any way, you must have this one. It is a masterpiece. Oh and you get all the 6 episodes on 1 dvd, great deal."
A must have for anime fans!

"Please Save My Earth is a story about Seven Japanese Teenagers that find each other because they are all sharing the same "Moon Dreams". In these Moon Dreams the Seven Teenagers are Seven Scientists on a Moon Base watching the earth. I don't want to give anything away but you'll fall in love with each of the characters as they discover what is the meaning of all of it. ^^ The DVD version is the only way you can see the Japanese version subtitled and if you are a PSME fan and haven't seen the Japanese version you are missing out!"
