This review is from: Kai Doh Maru  [DVD] (DVD)
I must say I had better expectations for this movie...
Don't take me wrong, the animation is out of the ordinary, the scenery is compelling and the action sequences are very graphic.
In the other hand, the storyline isn't clear if you don't read the back of the box and some of the extras first you won't fully understand the plot. It seems that the authors expect you to know a lot of information that's not explicit on the movie. The action sequences are good but too short, it's not easy to memorize the names of the characters (approximately 10...), the Portuguese subtitles messed up a bit with Kintoki's sex calling her "prince" in the beginning, and the overall movie is too short...
If you've read this and other reviews, and you're still interested in this movie, by all means buy it. It's really out of the ordinary, having an involving mystic, very complete extras, especially a lot of previews (more than 10), and it's not expensive for an alternative quality anime movie.
Enjoy it without many expectations and for what it really is.
