I need some help identifying an old anime. Like 12 or 15 years old, maybe older. I saw on late night sci-fi channel when I was a kid. I don't have much info, and it's pretty vague, but here's what I got:
Main character (blonde I think) male, acquires strange thing from dying/dead pilot of a (space?) craft. Strange thing is a glass hemisphere in the back of his hand. Pretty sure that it looked like stars inside the sphere-thing. I think there was also some lines/circuitry spreading from it in to the back of the hand. This did not grow or advance any that I remember, it was just there. Another character was a humanoid male creature, tall, thin, brown like leather skin, skin on arms unfurled in to wings (I'm pretty sure it was more like for gliding, not like bird wings but skin that stretched between the arms and the torso). I'm pretty sure this guy talk, but helped/was friends with the main character. I think at the end the main guy falls off of some kind of tower or cliff or something that has stone or metal bridges spanning a gap or canyon, and the wing-guy catches him.
I wish i could remember more about how he got the thing and what it did/was for, but I can't. Just that I'm pretty sure the pilot-thing he got it from was already dead when he found it.
Also, I think it was a stand-alone movie, not from a series.
Any help would be much appreciated.
