Not a lot of series questioned answered, but it sets up part two
9 June 2011 | by (California,US) – See all my reviews

This is part one of basically a two part movie. Not a lot of the 'mythology' is answered in part one, it's more about being in New York City. I'd say the animation is slightly better than the series animation. The first half of the movie is slower because it's all about getting the principles back together and getting them up to speed, so the second half is when we start to progress the story and get back to the game. When the film ends and they head back to Japan in part two.

It's part two when basically everything is answered, Takizawa's mother and how they separated, the voices behind Juiz, why Takizawa was picked for the game, the game ends,Mr. Outside, The supporter, Saki, etc. Also in part two at the END of the credits, there is one new scene that addresses an issue from the series.
