Arei no Kagami (アレイの鏡 ~ Way to the Virgin Space Arei's Mirror ~ Way to the Virgin Space?) was originally created by Leiji Matsumoto as an educational-like video aimed more at children. It used information about Earth and Outer Space which lead many to believe it as an educational video. It was first shown only as a movie in the Expo '85 as part of the World Fair. It was also Leiji Matsumoto's first work with Computer Graphics in it.
