ほしのこえ (Voices of a Distant Star) (2002)OVA

Genre: sci-fi drama

Log line: When a young woman is recruited into the Space Army to fight against alien creatures, her boyfriend stays on earth, and the farther she goes, the longer he has to wait an e-mail from her, even for several years.

This is an indie 25 minutes anime, which was created basically alone. It might look robot anime but it actually is about a sentiment that is caused by a distance. Because the director created it by himself, the quality is not like a major studio’s anime, but it became popular and that made the director famous.
