This is clearly a monster work although - like Akira - maybe somewhat overlong and a bit slow plot-wise. I'd be more than happy with the excellent animation if it had a Japanese dub to go with it (it does have two kinds of English subtitles).
I'll be looking at the Director's Cut in the hope of a Japanese dialogue track. I always find an English dub (I'm English) breaks the spell... and English never syncs properly anyway. Also, it's quite common to find key plot points rescripted for better sync (but poorer sense).
