The theme was dull and overdone. Basically, everyone forgets how to be human and act like dogs, and this guy is taught by this other guy and this chick how to be human. The plot is self-riteous: humans need to do this-and-that to be perfect like the aliens who erased their memories. One of the worst anime ever.

Needless to say, this anime isn't for everyone. Some may not understand the story, as it tends to jump around and the plot seems mixed up. However, the concept behind the story is fairly interesting. A wind that makes the world forget everything they ever knew, but the show jumps around so much, it seems to take them a while to actually tell you about it. The art style is nice, the animation solid and fluid. I haven't listen to the English Dub, so I won't comment on it.
If you don't mind thinking through your anime, you should be fine. The show may move around a lot, but overall it isn't too bad.

Okay,I have to say this an okay movie.It just talks about a man named Wataru and he meets a girl named Sophia and then they travel around the country trying to pick up people who lost their memories and Wataru is willing to teach them things.Then Wataru finds out who caused the wind of Amnesia and blah blah blah.Most of the movie is about other people they meet then it talks about Wataru and Sophia.There's a lot of nudity though so I dont reccomend it for kids.Also,if this movie was drawna bit better then I would have given it five stars.I dont know why but I cant stand old anime.

You can not argue with an anime that has such beautiful imagination. It reads like an Arthur C. Clarke story, earth's first encounter with alien, and its impact economically, sociologically etc. Like his novels, its a subtle thriller, never revealing too much too soon and always leaving more questions than answers.
To complain about its animation is as shallow as complaining about 2001:space oddysey's special effects. This is an anime that will stimulate the introvert. Those with a vivid imagination will lose themselves in this fantasy. The imagery is is beautiful to me, the sunny blue-green landscapes, cold deserted cities, long stares into the night sky, and the soothing loneliness (an escape from modern chaos)
If you have ever enjoyed any of the following
the imagination of the matrix,
Rendevouz with Rama novel by Arthur C clarke
The world of the Fallout (PC game) series
You will love this anime as much as I did.
Although I wish they had made this into a series, and prevented the abrupt ending that inevitably occurred... squeezing the future of mankind in a 90min screening!

A truly wonderfull and emotionally deep movie, even if the animation is slightly antiquidated. The ideas and questions it presents can be a bit deep to someone who still thinks Anime are just silly cartoons, but movies like this should quickly dispell that.
It's not one for war and violence buffs, and some of the timeing seemed a little off for some sound-effecets in the movie, but if your looking for something to ponder on a long day, or you have a friend who always complains about not ever having anything interesting to talk about... just watch this wonderfull tale and enjoy.

As many of the other reviews point out, that the concept of everybody losing thier memories is a good one. The sad part is that the story kind of drags on. The only people with memories are the ones that had memories implanted, saved somehow due to cybernetic implants, and one mysterious lady in which she is not all that she appears to be. Although the story kind of slow, it does make you think for a while.
Basically, an alien race was experimenting with Earth. They see how creative we can be with our buildings and machines. The aliens simply took all the memories of man, as our language and knowledge of tools, just to see how we would behave.

I'm pretty sure people who just started watching Jap. anime are WAAAY too facinated with the subculture and overwhelmed by the quality and quantity of animation that are viewd by those who grow up watching Looney Toons, Mickey Mouse, and Transformers.
For those of you (above), anime like "A Wind Named Amnesia" will BLOW u away (like most of reviewers here). But if you grow up watching Japanese animation, you'll notice this movie is just OK, nothing here that will "BLOW YOU AWAY". Animation quality is sub-par along with matching musical score, but the story is bit original- "like it - didn't love it."
For story info: read the ediorial review.
I'll recommend this DVD for those who are soooooooooooooo facinated by Jap. Anime and think everything from Japan is "WOW.. BEST EVER!!! OMG!! SUPERB!!"
for others, its entertaining, original, and worth a look..
