Now and Then, Here and There

Now and Then, Here and There

AKA: Ima, Sokoni Iru Boku
Drama, Sci-Fi, Adventure - 1999 (TV)
 
Ranking: 296

Shu is a typical Japanese boy, but has an unbeatable, optimistic and determined attitude. However, when he sees a mysterious girl with strange eyes named Lala-Ru up on a smokestack, he is soon pulled into a strange desert world. Shu soon discovers the true terrors of war, which includes genocide, brutal torture, hunger, thirst, and child explotation. Now Shu is trying to save Lala-Ru, as well as his hard earned, and often relunctant, new friends from the insane dictator, Hamdo. Whether Shu can possibly accomplish saving those he cares about while still holding up to his values remains to be seen. (Source: ANN)

Reviews

   

That said, it is not a *bad* show because of this. Shuzo and the others are more mature for their struggles and the overall tone at the end is still hopeful if not joyous. This is definitely not a show for those who like their anime on the lighter side, but rather for those who love a well-told story, whatever its mood. - ThemAnime

    

In contrast, Now and Then, Here and There is more of a celebration of life. This anime is a frighteningly believable microcosm of war, but it places greater emphasis on humanity’s resilience in the face of such adversities. Unlike most anime, the series never relies on trite statements like “war is hell” because, instead of telling, it oh so vividly shows. - Nihon Review
