Lack of solid plot
horrible shortness
colour is dodgey at times
more loose ends than a frayed rope

The list goes on :x

No. 1: It's based on a true story
No. 2: Of course the color "dodgey" at times, they were trying to make it look like an old movie
No. 3: It was short, because the budget was high, and most of Studio IG's movies are short, cus' there usaly three steps ahead of conventional anime.

Sorry if you didn't like the story, I geuss you will just have to blame the people who did it originaly... in real life.

I was thinking of buying this...until I read some reviews of it on the net: it doesn't seem my cup of tea as it were. Maybe you should have done that too.

running time of 75 minutes... film (single movie) is 45 minutes actually, they have a production report that's 30 minutes and they add that to the total running time on the DVD, but it's still only 45 minutes

i liked the color of the film, it doesn't go weird at times, it starts off light the old japanese artwork looked like and livens up for climactic scenes, i liked how they did that, and it would make a beautiful AMV if done right
(not by someone making a crappy video just to prove me wrong that it would make a beautiful video)

Don't judge an AMV by it's anime.. u nooB ;D

The colour was interesting, the problem is that the storytelling is very chopping. It goes from one scene to the next with no feeling of natural movement.
It's difficult to tell two of the characters apart, and even after watching it a couple times it's difficult to tell who some of the characters are (and why they are there) to begin with.

Basically, it's a renter.
If nothing else, harsh noises get your attention.

very true, althought i'd probably still buy it cause of the artwork

the story is definately not easily understandable the first run through, and i even watched it subbed to make it easier in case i didn't hear them say sumtin... still haven't watched it for the second time yet though, but i will, i at least want to understand the movie

Can anyone say what the story is about? Ofcourse, without spoiling anything.
