I was at my sister's apartment one night when I was around 14, and you know how it is when there is nothing on TV but you are bored so you keep flipping around, well this movie came on around 10 o'clock and I started watching it and although I wasn't able to follow what was going on exactly, I just could not turn it off. This movie was my first taste of Anime and it seems good Anime does that too you. I was deeply moved by Galaxy Express, to the point that I almost started crying towards the end. Quite a magical, imaginative movie. But yes, very very strange. I stayed up until two in the morning to see how it turned out.
