In 2047, an unknown alien life-form descends upon the Earth, destroying all the major cities in one fell swoop. The survivors unite and build a Diffusor to stop the invaders, and a temporary peace is achieved. Jump forward to 2053, the present. A last, desperate counterattack is being mounted against the enemy. Hiroshi Akishima, soldier in the Planetary Defense Forces Alliance, would like nothing better than a shot at the aliens responsible for his father's death six years ago. However, the new offensive requires the Diffusor to be dropped, leaving the entire planet terribly vulnerable once more.

PlanZet:(Japanese animated movie): A relatively quick flick that clocks in at about 50 minutes; basically the plot premise overall presumed the role of about saving the planet (or really it seemed like it was about saving Japan) from outer space spherical and star shaped somas/“things”. The experience of viewing PlanZet felt as if I were watching bunches of chimerically spliced iconic pieces that mutated themselves from video games and merged themselves into this movie. The experience was as if someone had put pictures of other paintings into this one painting and within its frame…perhaps like a collage filled with personal nostalgia…maybe? Some elements of the story script and some scenes that pertained to the animated giant mechanical mobile man suits, reminded me of the “Front Mission” video game universe. The flow of this movie showing was weird for me. There were some nice lines in the script, but some lines felt out of place in the English dub and in the English subtitles. At times and maybe it could be said, the English subtext script felt like it was being dubbed and was being dubbed over by another dub and being dubbed on top by yet another dub…or something like that. Was it a translation thing, did I miss something, or was movie not well done enough? I felt that there could have been more description for better setup of scenes and of characters. I thought that some scenes and their corresponding environments were well implemented in their own right at times, and I would be more than okay on this for the whole movie, if and only if said story of PlanZet was really fragments of some dreamer’s dreaming of this story …I can live with that kind of story as of right now in my mind…as it can be said that I am dreamer. I felt a little uncomfortable watching this movie…I think I could grasp the principle parts of the plot…sort of…but, I don’t know…maybe I fell asleep or something and missed certain details. Since I have not purposely published a polished piece of my own to the public, I therefore should not really complain or at least shouldn’t complain too much more than I already have. I couldn’t really feel for the characters and their relationships with said environments and this war with this unknown-unexplained enemy. In one respect, I’m actually okay with that…but in another I feel a little disillusioned in regards to the seeming incoherency to me. Family members and relations seemed to be a theme or the theme as most characters seemed to always talk about something relating to another family member. I will write here that something just did not set well with me while watching PlanZet. Based upon this viewing experiencing, to me, the Great Plan of PlanZet, could be that it might be of need of more planning. Maybe it is just me…maybe I need more planning? I will say I felt things…if anything. I know that I know nothing… so in that, I suppose I would likely need another to tell me their sensing and thinking side of the story…I liked parts and pieces of the story…just not the whole thing.
