Customer Review

on 2 May 2004
Yes, ok, despite being advertised as 80 min long, it is in fact 49 minutes (complete with "montage" at the end of the credits) long. Firstly, the extras are not very good, with the creators mumbling about how they did it (filmed on something like a VHS C camcorder from Dixons!!!)
But that's not the important part anyway. The main feature is just Lush. It is the ONLY watercolour anime out there. The visuals are stunning and, coupled with a good surround sound mix, immerses you in the atmosphere of feudal Japan. You can tell it's from the same stable as Blood: the last vampire.
The plot is fairly complex, and you may have to watch a couple of times before it becomes clearer (watching between Jap with Eng subtitles, and Eng alone, shows slight differences in translation but may also clarify things a little).
And again, because the story is so short, it seems more like a short channel 4 animation then a feature length manga movie. However, you'll love the artwork on display here so much it'll more than make up for the timespan. A definite MUST HAVE.
