Characters are given deeper and more dramatic backstories and relationships with one another which surly adds to their later motivations when seen in the movie, though I couldn’t help but feel that they’re also been filtered to be more relatable and the world they exist within more grounded which is great overall except the fantastic and often bizarre world of Yukito has been lessened for the general public.
Which does make me question this book somewhat, who has it been created for? Surly the deeper existing fan base are more interested in finding out more on the past exploits of these characters than the newer steadily growing fans? Then again this book is specifically marketing towards the movie, the most important aspect of which is ultimately has enough been done to keep the spirit of the source material for the original fans.
Personally I’d say for the most part yes, though I get the sense some changes will been seen as forced and unnecessary, this is in many ways recreating a world, this version we see is somehow unrecognisable yet still full of the life and themes that made the original series so good to begin with.
This book then allows the original fans to dip their toes in these uncertain waters and see if they can bring themselves to plunge into the transition of a fully realised and relatable world that has less of a fantastical and brutal nature but still offers plenty of dramatic and philosophical themes without being too heavy handed.
The book in turns offers newer fans a better understanding of what the movie is about as well as answering questions they might have, though I see more looking for this information after they’ve seen the film.

Edit: Increasing to 2 stars, despite the factual goof in the introduction, the rest of the preview is actually rather interesting, might buy it later.
