The best anime movie ever., 11 May 2000
Author: Mikael Börjesson (mikael.borjesson) from Göteborg, Sweden

The action and brutality found in this movie is hard to find anywhere else. I love this movie but watch out for the sequels, they only become worse and worse. And the "real" movie version of the movie is a shame. This is the original and it is the best.
