Just watched “Wonderful Days” last night, I didn’t know it was a Korean anime. At first, I thought it was Japanese but as I was listening to the conversation and…it was Korean… Blame it to watching too much Korean dramas and movies and listening to Kpop music.
It was really a very nice anime, the story is also good though at the later part, it was dragging and kinda hard to understand what ECOBAN is, cause it wasn’t explain concisely and it was really set in the future… But on my own understanding (pLease correct me if I’m wrong), ECOBAN creates an energy where it doesn’t need solar or the sun that’s why it was so dark (you can’t see the sun) and there are no plants except for the plant Shua kept in Bay Area, there is no ocean too… I also don’t understand why they have to kept Marrians as slaves and non of their kind when slavery is part of our past… they should be using robots.. Lols.. but it was good.. the creation (computer generated) can compete with Final Fantasy but lets face it.. Nothing beats Final Fantasy… hehehe… Have you watched this aLready?
Wonderful Days (AKA Sky Blue) is a South Korean animated science fiction film, released in 2003, written and directed by Kim Moon-saeng. It features backdrops rendered using photo-realistic computer-generated imagery, comparable to those in the film Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, along with the use of highly detailed models for some of the backdrops into which the cel animated characters were then animated. However, convincing CGI animation of humans (especially human movement) was not attempted. The backgrounds in the film were shot with traditional motion control techniques, then processed to look like CG. The vehicles were all rendered, and the characters were cel animated.
Plot: Set in a post-apocalyptic world in the far future, Wonderful Days tells the story of the efforts by a segregated ethnic group known as Diggers to destroy the polluting city of Ecoban. The Diggers are lead in this mission by an enigmatic young man known as Shua (Marc Worden), whose presence after a 10 year absence from the city lands him back into a love triangle with his childhood friend, Jay (Cathy Cavadani), and her boss, the security commander for Ecoban, Cade (Kirk Thornton).
