The Sky Crawlers

Shame their budget or venue wouldn’t stretch to 1:1 on this model. This is part of promotional efforts for the upcoming (August 2nd) theatrical release of スカイ・クロラ The Sky Crawlers, an adaptation of a popular SF novel series, being directed by Ghost in the Shell luminary 押井守 / Mamoru Oshii, and animated by Production IG. The release coincides with the release of the Ghost in the Shell remaster/renewal.

Not too sure about the film – whilst it will probably be great, and looks to have impeccable production values, a series might be a better choice for additional depth and development, especially considering there are five novels to work with. Will this be able to compete with the magnificent Last Exile for the crown of best aerial armada war anime?
