At the time it was made "Wings Of Honneamise"
, also know as the "Royal Space Force"
, was the most expensive animated feature ever (costing approximately $8 million) and was GAINAX Studios
first full feature film. In fact Gainax
was created specifically to produce this moivie. Anno Hideaki
and Yoshiyuki Sadamoto
, both of whom were to later work on Neon Genesis Evangelion
, were two of the GAINAX
members to work on this anime
A very cool film that actaully has a good plot which should have made it really big like Akira did.
