Plot Summary

Two rival kingdoms vie for fresh water and in the process end up destroying their entire society. As seen through the eyes of an innocent go-between, this tragic story details the depths to which loyalty and everlasting love must be tested, in a futile attempt to save a world from total destruction.

My Thoughts

Windaria (a.k.a. Once Upon A Time) is an excellent movie! The story is well written. Just make sure to have a box of tissues next to you while you watch it, because this movie is depressing. It's also kind of a cult classic. I've spoken to people who aren't that interested in anime, yet they heard of this movie and love it. It was good enough to get a DVD release over here.

Notes

  • If you have a Chromecast, via Chrome my videos can be casted to your TV. The cast icon Chromecast icon appears after you click to play a video. (This is supported on Android devices, Windows, and OSX. Not iOS.)
    • Most of the anime in this site was made for old TV resolutions (non wide screen). However, keep in mind that most modern TVs have the ability to stretch the screen. Try that feature if the vertically cropped screen is bothering you. Here's a comparison of standard/stretched screens.
  • Is video not playing? Wait a minute or two; depending on your Internet speed it could take a while.
  • Is video loading slow? The High Quality videos require high speed Internet. You might have better luck with the Low Quality version. If that doesn't help, try downloading the movie so you can play it in full.
