...that music
16 October 2002 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I learned of this movie through the ADV previews while watching the Neon Genesis episodes. Not only did the scenes appear to be some of the sickest (awesome sick) I might ever see, but the japanese woman's singing and the music set a mood of utter darkness and depression. I rewound that little two minute preview until I remember what I put the tape in for. I had to watch it. My favorite anime store did not have it to rent so I was forced to buy it. Upon finally watching, I found that although it did not shake up my universe like I had hoped, it still was able to impress me. The entire movie is dark, it has been a while since I watched it (my copy has made the borrowed-never-returned list) and I do not recall any kind of humor in this movie. All in all it is maybe a step under Ninja Scroll, good story and fighting. And for my final thought, this movie makes my top ten "Movies to Compliment a Semi-Depressed Mood."

A good sleeper.
