On planet Arcana, a mystic tree is said to absorb the memories of the civilization where it takes root. A sentient android boy, Palme, is made from this wood to care for his maker's sick wife. When she dies, he is paralyzed with grief and loses all sense of purpose. Then blue-skinned Koram, a woman warrior of the Sol tribe, arrives at their home fleeing a group of armed pursuers, and he mistakes her for his dead mistress. She asks Palme and his maker to take a mysterious egg to the sacred region of Tama. When his maker is killed by Koram's attackers, Palme takes over and journeys through Arcana, encountering danger and friendship and learning what it is to be human. This Japanese take on Pinocchio is beautifully rendered, with backgrounds by Mutsuo Koseki, whose work is better known from Nausicaä of the Valley of Wind and Castle in the Sky. Attractive and interesting designs show stylistic echoes of Catnapped; but it's poorly paced and the character of Palme himself is not sympathetic. V
