AN EPIC
9 October 2001 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This is the best anime I have ever seen, a modern classic. The story, characters and animation is just great. However it is not for all people, full of violence, blood and sex as it is. Yet thru the bloodshed it is a story, and I feel that the sex and violent that are present in this movie is necessary to see the whole picture. So if you like Japanese animation films, a solid dose of sex and violence you should check this one out.
