Aim for the Ace! (1979 Movie)

leave a comment »

I recently re-watched the Ace wo Nerae movie that compiles the whole 26 episodes of the TV series. It’s impossible to edit such a big plot and not expect for it to be worse than the original. Too many crucial points were simply ignored. Kyoko Otowa for example. In the TV show, she is an important antagonist for the protagonist’s character development. In the movie, she became an extra. She is merely there.

I previously blogged about the white tennis balls in the 1973 TV series. I’m just posting to point out that in the movie version, the balls are yellow instead.

Some interesting posters can also be seen. Space Wars is probably a reference to Star Wars (1977), but the image might be a reference to the 2001: A Space Odissey (1968) poster. If you can recognize any of the other posters, please post about it on the comments section.
