The stadium where Hitomi first meets Folken and is drawn into the world of Gaia is modeled on the historic and famous Kasumigaoka National Olympic Stadium (Kokuritsu Kasumigaoka Rikujo Kyogijo) in the Shinjuku ward of Tokyo, where the 1964 Summer Olympics were held. Some of the most distinctive elements in the stadium, such as the colored rows of seats, large scoreboard, lights, and field track are directly visible in the film. The stadium was demolished in 2015 to make way for a new stadium constructed for the 2020 Olympics. Another visible Shinjuku landmark in the film is the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, which Hitomi sees from the train while she is out shopping with her friend Yukari. See more »

Not as good as the series, but one of the better anime films
I'd read about this in a Japanese-language book from one of my local stores but didn't get around to watching it until late last decade. It's very different from the series but everything is just as detailed and gritty. Believable characters and a gripping plot plus the character designs are really something. The sword and sorcery elements are all there and the mecha look really organic. I'd seen the English dub but the voices were just fine. This, along with the Hayao Miyazaki films, are among my favorite anime movies. Lots of action and drama too.
