"I can't stop loving you.", 19 April 2006
An excellent film that just grew on me as the story unfolded. At first, I didn't like the design, the bright pink collars, the cockatoo hair styles etc. But it grew on me. The characters in the movie are bold brush stroke studies; archetypes. The CG, though not as seemless as movies like Howl's Moving Castle and the like, still works for my money because there's a clunky sensibilty as large as the character's boots to the whole thing.
I recommend it, but I also recommend that the viewer take their time with it and simply enjoy it. It's a wonderful world that Osamu Tezuka has created here, a world beautifully realised by Katsuhiro Otomo and Rintaro, one you'll visit time and again.
Money well spent, and a worthy addition to any anime collection.
