    It was pretty good, but i don\'t agree with it\'s 100% rating. The dialogue was NOT very believable/convincing. The story was interesting though. One of the few anime films I have enjoyed.

    This movie is a great piece of work. I highly recommend this movie because it is fun to watch and the detail is amazing. I believe it one of the best movies I have ever seen.
