I watched episodes 1 to 3 and half of 4. The first episode looked good enough to persue the series, but I even neglected to finish watching the fourth one. It is a story in an alternate world which is lacking the essential ressource of water. Everything is very dark: bloody war, insane leaders wanting to “bring peace” to the world, children in difficult war situations. Maybe it gets better later on, but I did not think there was much of a plot or a point this far.

It’s funny, there’s good action sequences, the plot is a little contrived and the dialogue is bad at times… actually unrealistic. But hey!! It scores better than robotech, ronin warriors or any of the other classic stuff. It’s par. Right about where Outlaw star would be on the cheese meter, but there are some more mature things going on. Rated 16+, there’s implied rape, torture, animal mutilation… good stuff. Definately wath this in the Japanese version, because the dubbed dialogue is just awkward, even thought the voice acting sounds nice.

You should be able to look at the box and figure the rest out.

It’s hard to feel compassion for the main character (Shu) when he is so incredibly dense and too optimistic. Perhaps that is the moral of the show, but I think it’s just bad writing. The violence is painfully tame and the stupidity of Shu borderlines that of comedy. You almost wish that the world he’s in should just be obliterated to save us from total boredom. Save your money and purchase a better collectible set. Trigun, Reign, even Berserk has more action and storyline than this waste of dvd.

Violence, I can take.

Kids shooting each other…. no. I think the author has a bad idea of violence in children.

Drawings were great! But, story was aweful! I dont know why people would recommend it. It was dragging and boring.

I baught Now and Then, Here and There because 70 out of 75 people on amazon gave it a glowing review. Most claiming it was one of the best anime ever made. Then I watched it. What I found was easily THE WORST anime I had EVER seen.

I mean the animation is extremely dated even for an eighties anime. The voice acting was as flat abd stiff as a board. The plot was copy and pasted from dozens of other shows. The characters were shallow and 2d. However the most unforgivable error was the so called grand philosophy of the series. IT WAS COMPLETE GARBAG!!! One episode the brought up abortion and all they had to say about it and I quote, ‘Life’s to precious’ and that’s it. Sadly that’s the way it is with most of the deep philosophy in the series. This more then anything serves to tick me off. Mean my god if all you’re going to say about a deeply philosophical or debated subject is one stinken line why bring it up at all! Added to that the ending was extremely horrible even for an anime!! Yes I get the whole self sacrifice to save humanity because of a change in opinion of the species but come on. Add to the horrible ending and poor philosophy was the lack of realistic cause and effect. Which further irritates the heck out of me. The main character is brutally tortured at the beginning of the series and comes out of it with absolutely no change in his personality. When people are tortured for no good reason or just plain tortured for days on end it tends to make them spiteful, pessimistic, anger or something but they don’t come out of it thinking humanity’s great. Same with pretty much everything in the series.

Geesh it was the biggest pile of garbage I’ve ever seen. God I’d like to go and ask what show all these people that thought it was an amazing series saw in it.
