The animation of this Appleseed re-make is nothing short of breathtaking. The mecha scenes, and all the battle scenes are epic, with every single piece of this feature choreographed to perfection. My only gripe is that some of the human animations seem to be a bit choppy. Here and there I notice certain movements, (which would be the hardest to produce using CG), have been cut, or are traded for more economical movements, and shots, or just look plain wooden. These are in the vast minority though, and often I can see where choices to economise certain shots pay huge dividends in other pieces where the additional detail, or the extra frames now available resulted in some of the most fluid, breathtakingly, beautiful animation I've ever witnessed.
Additionally, the features on the DVD are great! Time has been put into producing quality extras, which are second only to the main feature in watchability.
As an aside, I'd recommend to anyone who hasn't seen the original appleseed; watch that too!
