I liked Blue's, uh, extended term in the anime, but prefer the manga's handling of the end.

I will never forgive the anime for leaving out the scene where Soldier Shin is burning in the arms of Captain Harley, though.

Did the manga end the same way? Jomi and the others all dying because of Grandfather or whatever the artificial program was named?

That captain/admiral dude who changed his decision at the very end was a bit of a dumbass though.

>>100204826
He's married to Leo, or pining for Blue, depending who you ask.

Except for the movie, where he bangs whatsherface and spawns Tony.

Keith did nothing wrong.

>>100204469
Pretty much, though there was no weird tentacle sword fight and Keith's end is a little different. And Tony pretty much abandons his body and curls up in a corner of the universe to be emo in the end. Plus the epilogue shows reincarnated Jomy and Physis meeting up in a spaceship on the way to Earth.

Yeah, that's Physis. My recollection is that I felt like the anime implied she and Blue had a thing, while Jomy at best had a one-sided crush on her (but I might be biased). Did they hold hands at one point?

If you liked Terra and have a tolerance for bad old-school sci fi, you should read "Slan" -- which features a main character named Jommy who has telepathy, a spaceship hidden underground, and other interesting plot points you may be familiar with.
>>
>>100205893
I liked him. It might have looked like he had choices, but he didn't. He had the most suffering. The ending with Jomy was kind of nice.

I liked Keiko's other work Kaze to Ki no Uta. Will I like Toward the Terra too?
>>
>>100206127
It's been a few years since I read it, and the plot was a clusterfuck. His mom dies, he gets all this badass tech from his dad (who I forget if he's dead or not), and then a villain named "Kier Gray" (no relation to Keith, haha) shows up and tries to genocide all the telepaths. Spoiler: Kier is also a "slan" or a telepath.. Makes you wonder what Keith might have been.

>>100206135
The "Soldier Blue" movie I know Takemiya has openly acknowledged as a mild piece of inspiration, at least for the name. I don't recall reading about her drawing from "Slan" but it's 100% obvious that she did. "Jomy" or "Jommy" really isn't a common name, and some of the press for "Terra" in English straight up said that is was drawn from "Slan" (see, e.g., http://www.anime.com/Terra_He/)
>>
>>100206541
Definitely, but it's less gay, even more mind tripping and to some extent, the drama feels heavier.
>>
>>100206657
Thanks anon, this is fascinating.
>>
>>100206805
The "Slan" book is worth a read just for shitting bricks at certain similarities. It also benefits from picturing the characters as Jomy and Keith.
