I'd have to say that, after seeing the movie, the hype following this series is entirely justified.

I didn't know there was a movie out for this anime? I'm gonna have to find it, seeing as I have become a huge fan of the series, thanks to Sci-Fi.

Wow, just...wow. :|

Not sure how I feel about all the side characters gaining spiral powers so early, but it was still awesome as all get out.

And my mind was genuinely blown when Yoko turned her sniper rifle into a carbine.

I was just looking through /a/ and there was a thread about the new movie that came out in theaters in Japan two weeks ago. Pretty much everybody that went to go see it agrees that The Movie>>>The TV Series. Everything that felt awkward during the series got cleaned up and it was generally more fantastic in every way.
In addition, much to my delight,
*MAJOR SPOILER*
Spoiler :
Nia doesn't die in the movie. :D :D :D

Heres a screencap someone took of it in the movie theatre.

Its gonna be a long 8 months til the DVD release.

Who cares about them? As I recall, they barely even had names in the first movie. :wink:
Spoiler :
Except Kittan. I'll have to live with lack of an awesome death.

Please tell me if you know, in the movie, does he eventually touch the ground that Kamina left unfulfilled, if you know what I mean?
