Since there isn't a review of 'Terra e' / 'Toward the Terra' & after having re-watched it again. This anime has a great story, special art style for a mature audience (without all the erotica & guru violence now a days). However it has been often overlooked, even by me.
The original science fiction manga started at 1977-1980 by Keiko Takemiya and has won the first Seiun Award for manga. In 1980 it was adapted into an anime movie, produced by Toei Animation and directed by Hideo Onchi. The anime (tv) started in 2007.
The viewer is faced with a dilemma of a future where humanity debilities the resources of earth, making it impossible to remain on earth. The guild humanity had of it's action resulted in deliberate creation of superhuman artificial intelligence, dictating the existence of future generations.
The story takes place three centuries from the day humanity left earth. In the dictated evolution of future generations has acquired an unexpected error / treat to the system which needs to be neutralized. This are the Mu. Who are the Mu? what will happen to them or it?
How is it possible that the superhuman intelligent has had this error? How will the humanity solve this? Is it even possible to solve it? Does it need to be solved? How will the Mu react?
Who is going to win, humanity or the Mu? Interested? Give it a go.
It does starts a bit slows, nonetheless you will enjoy this anime ;)
Scoring wise it is 8 out of 10, but is one of my favorites so I go for 5/5. It is just as good as high quality sweet cope of coffee ^^
