What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this movie:

In this gripping futuristic anime, 10 space cadets have their survival skills put to the ultimate test when their crippled spacecraft is set adrift in the cosmos.

To add a degree of difficulty, one of the cadets just might be an impostor intent on destroying the ship before the wayward space travelers can get home.

Several months ago Chris Stuckmann on YouTube made a video called, The Japanimation Era – Retro Rewind, about some of the older Japanese anime that he saw when he was a kid.

Some of those anime films I had not seen yet so I decided to download the first one he mentioned, which was called They Were Eleven, and I did not expect to like this older anime because I thought that I would not like the 1980s visual style and I thought that the dubbing would be terrible and I assumed that the anime would not have aged well and I have never heard of this anime before.
