Agito awakens Toola from cryogenic sleep. Toola has some adjusting to do, as a science experiment GoneHorriblyWrong has left the moon a bit less intact than it used to be, has turned plants into destructive forces of nature, and has made water a bit scarce. As she's attempting to adjust to her new life, Shunack, another former cryogenic sleeper, arrives.

Shunack informs Toola that there's a way to return things to the way they were before. Toola, not coping with the murderous forest and other changes well, agrees to leave with him. Agito doesn't think this is a good idea, and the forest and its representatives agree with him. Agito is enhanced with some of the forest's energy so he can stand up to Shunack and the legion of soldiers and HumongousMecha under his command. As this goes on Toola starts seeing glimpses of just how militant Shunack can be, and starts to figure out that putting things back to "normal" is going to cause a lot more destruction than she thought.

!!This film provides examples of:

* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: The setting of the film takes place 300 years after the present time.
* AlienSky: Although the film is set on Earth, the moon is clearly cracked and has a line of debris extending from it.
* ApocalypseHow: Somewhere around class 1 or 2. Human society as Toola remembers it is gone and forest covers a lot more of the Earth than she remembers. The rest is desert or ruins.
* ArtisticLicenseGeology: In the climax [[spoiler: a volcano is able to stand up on mechanical legs, becoming a movable weapon of mass destruction, despite logically being cut off from the mantle.]]
* ArtisticLicensePhysics: At the end of the volcano scene mentioned above, Agito jumps off the side of the mountain with Toola and both of them fall a good thousand feet. The landing actually kicks up a plume of dirt. Both are totally fine. Now, even if Agito is [[spoiler:a silver-haired superman]] Toola is just a normal human and the sudden stop should have snapped her neck.
* ArtMajorBiology: Everything involving The Forest is a sight to be behold: beautiful, mobile and dangerous.
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: At the end of the film, [[spoiler:Shunack becomes one with the forest after Agito traps him during his KarmicTransformation]].
* TheAtoner: [[spoiler: Shunack is motivated by a desire to fix his mistake by overstimulating the genetic experiment that turned into the Forest as it exists in the present. He describes activating E.S.T.O.C. as erasing "centuries of guilt".]]
* BadassGrandpa: Towards the end of the film, Hajan punches a falling boulder in mid-air and ''destroys'' it before it can hit Neutral City.
* BareYourMidriff: Agito's outfit after becoming enhanced shows off the abs he got from being enhanced.
* BigBad: Shunack is the main villain of the film. He is the one who [[spoiler: persuades Ragna to find E.S.T.O.C. and convinces Toola to help him. Defeating him is necessary to restore peace.]]
* BigDamnHeroes: Towards the end of the film, [[spoiler:Jessica and the Ragna Army]] help stop E.S.T.O.C. and [[spoiler:Hajan]] destroys one of the rocks caused by E.S.T.O.C.'s destruction.
* BigNo: Toola screams this after Agito inadvertently wakes her up. Apparently, she was screaming it when she was first put under.
* BlackAndGrayMorality: Ragna is a seemingly anti-environmental ruthless empire, but they first-and-foremost only want to live independantly from the Forest and avert the AlwaysChaoticEvil trope. On the other hand, the altered "eco-system" of the Earth is a sentient, animalistic, mass-murdering, force of literal nature that demands that its protectors be turned into trees. It is explained by Yolda to Toola that Neutral City is mean to be both a "bridge and a barrier" between the two extremes.
* BoringInvincibleHero: Subverted. After his enhancement, Agito finds that Ragna's tanks with their huge and explosive ordinance can't hurt him. Then [[spoiler: he is nonchalantly tranquilized by a random and nameless soldier]]. Also, despite overcoming that obstacle, [[spoiler: Shunack effortlessly defeats him in combat.]]
* ClingyJealousGirl: Minka has a crush on Agito and so naturally Toola is competition. She makes her claim very clearly, "I'm going to marry Agito".
* ConvectionSchmonvection: Near the end of the movie, [[spoiler: Agito runs down an exploding volcano with Toola in his arms while being closely pursued by a very fast (and presumably very hot) lava flow. The ground he's running across is glowing red and actually looks molten in some places and yet neither of them suffer so much as a singed hair.]]
* CreepyTwins: The twin forest spirits, and especially the one with the high, squeaky voice, certainly evoke a classic FairFolk vibe.
* CursedWithAwesome: Those who become enhanced by the forest gain extraordinary super-strength and durability, but using that power can gradually cause {{Metamorphosis}} and effectively an early death. When their time comes, they mostly accept their fate, claiming to finally be in peace with nature and themselves.
* DeathEqualsRedemption: At the end of the film, [[spoiler:Shunack's consciousness]] expresses that he no longer desires to fight and becomes one with [[spoiler:the forest]].
* {{Determinator}}: Agito will get Toola back no matter how far he has to go or how long it takes. Shunack as well, who wants to correct his past mistakes, and he'll do whatever it takes and let ''nobody'' get in his way.
* DetonationMoon: The Forest was originally housed on the Moon. When it went out of control, it tore its way through the Moon before coming to Earth as debris. The moon is still up there, but it's badly fractured and has a ring.
* TheDragon: Jessica serves as Shunack's right-hand woman [[spoiler:up until she pulls a HeelFaceTurn towards the film's end]].
* TheDulcineaEffect: Classic example with Agito and Toola. As soon as he finds her, he becomes dead set on helping her. This ranges from aiding her adjustment to the new world and then saving her from the BigBad.
* TheEmpire: Everything about Ragna ''screams'' this trope, from their blood red armor to their HumongousMecha to their heavily industrialized, military society. [[spoiler:However, they're far from AlwaysChaoticEvil. For the most part, they're generally decent people trying to live independently from the Forest, which is easy to see as a monstrous, tyrannical entity (even though it is not portrayed as such).]]
* EtTuBrute: Jessica's reaction to Shunack when [[spoiler:he reveals his true motives]] is outrage.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Shunack has a deep, booming voice befitting for a villain.
* {{Fanservice}}: There's a decent amount such as Toola in her short, tight hospital gown, and Agito's revealing top and muscles after he's enhanced. Also, Minka sleeps naked, or at least topless.
* FastballSpecial: A comical variation -- after Agito gets enhanced, his inaugural battle on behalf of the forest begins with a Druid unceremoniously kicking him off a mile-high cliff and into the midst of Ragna soldiers siphoning water. He immediately recovers with his CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Shunack's affable personality is a mask to hide his true nature as a villain.
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Toola and Shunack are humans who were put into stasis around the time of the cataclysm. Both of them were unsettled and confused by what they saw when they woke up. [[[spoiler: Shunack wants to destroy it but Toola decides to embrace it.]]
* GeniusLoci: The Forest is both a place and a HiveMind consciousness.
* GoneHorriblyWrong: Genetically modified plants break the moon in half, land on Earth, and kill most of humanity when [[spoiler:one of the scientists, Shunack, got impatient and decided to speed the experiment along a little]].
* GoombaSpringboard: Agito is the victim of a rather humiliating one when he [[spoiler: fights Shunack. Shunack sends him tumbling and relieves him of his love interest in one easy movement, with a smug look on his face.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Towards the end of the series, the Ragna Army turn on Shunack and helps Agito rescue Toola]].
* HeroOfAnotherStory: Agito's dad, Agashi, is revered by the people of Neutral City for both the hard work he put into founding it (ahead of its other two founders) and the wisdom that he still dispenses. However, his story is already over [[spoiler: and he becomes one with the forest after his first scene.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Agito transforms into a tree to allow Toola to destroy E.S.T.O.C. and help save the world. He gets better]].
* HighHeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:Jessica decides she has had enough of Shunack after she learns of his true colors and helps fight off E.S.T.O.C. to help Agito rescue Toola. It's not a completely pure example because every soldier present immediately sides with her instead of Shunack]].
* HiveMind: The Forest is the collective sentience of the entire forest, as well as any human who reaches the terminal stage of their enhancement.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: At the end of the film, [[spoiler:Agito uses his powers from the forest and transforms into a tree to trap Shunack, who also has powers from the forest. This leads to him forcibly AscendedToAHigherPlaneOfExistence]].
* HumanPopsicle: Toola and Shunack were frozen years earlier. It's implied that others are still sleeping but others are clearly dead because their skeletons are seen.
* KarmicTransformation: [[spoiler:Shunack, who not only caused the Forest to overrun the world, but is attempting to destroy it, gets turned into a tree along with Agito. Agito gets better, but Shunack doesn't.]]
* LandmarkingTheHiddenBase: E.S.T.O.C. is inside a volcano. It takes up the entire thing.
* LostSuperweapon: Much of the plot involves the search for an old-world device intended to reclaim the world from the feral forest. It turns out to be [[spoiler: a walking volcano cannon. The precursors obviously played a lot of ''Videogame/DwarfFortress''.]]
* {{Metamorphosis}}: Enhanced humans eventually turn into trees, faster if they abuse their powers.
* ManipulativeBastard: Shunack [[spoiler:manipulates both the Ragna Army and Toola so he can achieve E.S.T.O.C. for his own plans]].
* MysticalWhiteHair: White hair is a sign that someone has become "enhanced" by the Forest, granting their tremendous boosts to their physical ability. [[spoiler:Agito]], though it's not much of a spoiler since his hair is showed white in the advertisements for the movie... and is also ''the Japanese title''. [[spoiler:''Gin-iro no Kami no Agito'', lit. "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Silver-haired Agito]]". Subtle.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone:
** When Toola realizes [[spoiler:Shunack plans to commit mass murder with E.S.T.O.C. and she helped him do it, she is horrified and immediately tries to stop him.]]
** Shunack felt this trope too when awoke and saw what had become of the world [[spoiler: because it was his impatience in the plant experiment that caused it go wrong]].
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: [[spoiler:Shunack's abandonment of Jessica as well as the Ragna Army end up being his undoing because Jessica promptly becomes Agito's ally. She provides him with intel and military support]].
* NatureHero: [[spoiler:Agito is empowered by the Forest to fight for the Forest, but he's actually motivated by a desire to protect Toola and the human settlement of Neutral City.]]
* OfficialCouple: It's more implied than anything and certainly unspoken but [[spoiler: Agito and Toola get together by the end of the film. In any case, Toola considers her home to be with Agito.]]
* OhCrap: Jessica when she realizes [[spoiler:Shunack's true motives]].
* OneManArmy: Anyone who was touched by the Forest is capable of taking on armies all by their lonesome. [[spoiler:Agito doesn't seem to have a problem with singlehandedly destroying tanks. Literally singlehandedly, when he slices a tank in half with one hand]].
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: They're dragon-shaped amalgams of plants and they can survive in outer space.
* PlantPerson: Enhanced humans are humans who have merged with plans. There's also the druids and the forest spirit twins, who are tree creatures in humanoid form.
* PluckyGirl: Toola is understandably shaken and depressed by the loss of her society and is not an ActionGirl but [[spoiler: when she realizes the full extent of Shunack's plan, she steals his sword and tries to stop him by breaking the E.S.T.O.C. activation system.]]
* Really700YearsOld: Toola and Shunack still look like how they were over 300 years ago after they are awakened.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Shunack wears a black and red military uniform and serves as the BigBad.
* RomanticismVersusEnlightenment: The Forest and Ragna, though which side is which is complicated. On the one hand, there's the whole nature vs. science thing; on the other, Ragna and especially Shunack are obsessed with the past while the Forest is a genetically engineered HiveMind of plants (possibly a biotech [[{{Transhuman}} Posthuman]]) that brought down the old order.
* RuinsOfTheModernAge: Most cities are completely taken over by the Forest and are reduced to rubble, while only a few buildings still stand. This hits Toola especially hard, as she remembers how the city used to be.
* SaveTheWorldClimax: The anime starts with a FishOutOfWater exploring a new world and ends with [[spoiler: preventing a volcano from resetting everything]].
* SayMyName: "TOOOOLAAAA!!!"
* SceneryPorn: The landscapes are positively beautiful, especially the overgrown ruined cities [[spoiler: and volcanic eruption at the end.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: Once [[spoiler:Jessica and the Ragna Army realize Shunack's true intentions, they decide to bail on him]].
* ShesGotLegs: Toola has long and slender legs thanks to her uniforms.
* SpiderTank: "Walking Sticks" and "Ragna Tanks".
* StrangerInAFamiliarLand: Once Toola wakes up from her cryogenic sleep, she finds that her home has been irreversibly changed.
* SuperStrength: Enhanced humans get strength enough to effortless tear apart steel machines and shatter rock.
* SuperToughness: Every enhanced human is durable enough to survive falls from a great height and close range cannon fire. These plants were designed to live in hostile environments, after all.
* TakingYouWithMe: Towards the end of the film, Agito [[spoiler:transforms into a tree, dragging Shunack with it]]. Fortunately, he gets better.
* TookALevelInBadass: Agito grows stronger in spades thanks to the forest powers.
* ATragedyOfImpulsiveness: [[spoiler:Shunack's impatience in trying to speed up the plant experiment doomed Earth]].
* TranquilFury: Jessica keeps her cool when she's outraged by [[spoiler:Shunack's deceptions]].
* TronLines: The entryway to the [[spoiler:volcano that contains E.S.T.O.C.]] lights up with these in response to Toola's raban.
* UnwittingPawn: Shunack sees the [[spoiler:Ragna Army]] as nothing more than pawns in his plans
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Shunack plans to undo the damage done to Earth... by using Toola and the Ragna Army [[spoiler:to gain control of E.S.T.O.C.]].
* WhamLine: How [[spoiler:Jessica finds out Shunack's true colors]].
-->[[spoiler:'''Shunack''']]: What's inside belongs to those of us from the past. It's not for your eyes.
-->'''Jessica''': [[TranquilFury You intend to betray the Ragna Army]].
-->[[spoiler:'''Shunack''']]: As though there were anything you could do to stop me. ''[he and Toola walk through the portal]'' We'll not meet again.
-->'''Jessica''': ''[the door closes]'' Come back! So, we ''finally'' see your true colors.
* WhenTreesAttack: Don't piss off the [[PlantPeople Druids]] if you know what's good for you.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: It is a downplayed trope. Shunack has white hair and is the BigBad but so does TheHero and his father, the HeroOfAnotherStory and two other heroic characters (Yolda and Hajan). Shunack himself is a WellIntentionedExtremist.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Towards the end of the film, Shunack [[spoiler:abandons Jessica and the Ragna army as part of his evil plans]].
