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 film.

A very cool film that actaully has a good plot which should have made it really big like Akira did.
