visually impressive
7 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Its wonderful blend of brooding animation, coupled with a dizzying array of memorable disco music, makes this movie an instant classic and childhood favorite (of mine). The voice-acting, though a bit grating on the nerves, is tolerable. And the stories are told in a gripping and beautiful fashion, breathing new life into classical mythology. I was unaware, for a long time, that the movie was Japanese in origin; much like it's now esoteric successors (The Last Unicorn, for example), it's strange blend of artistic aesthetics seem at once universal, and nonspecific to any particular place or time. Definitely worthy of seeking out, if you can find a copy.
