This is a story set in Feudal Japan. Kintoki flees her uncle into the mountains and is rescued by Lord Raiko and his men who raise her to be a warrior. However her past comes calling...
This is told with computer animation that mixed flat with 3D. The coloring is very deliberate and makes you swear that something is wrong with your TV set, its not, it, like the design of the film is made to look of the art of the period the story takes place in. It looks good if really odd. If you like Japanese art then you are going to really enjoy the film purely on a visual level.
The plotting is such that, well, let me put it this way, The DVD I was watching was damaged and wouldn't play past the middle of the movie and I didn't care. I could have returned it for something else instead I just went on to another movie. It wasn't bad, its just that what was happening on screen was not living up to the visuals.
Honestly is worth a rental but its not worth a purchase unless you are interested in the art of the time period, or the different styles used in different types of animation.
Interesting Technically, but not emotionally
