Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva Pretty decent movie, with a good and interesting plot throughout. Although it does try to stay true to the game, there isn't much actual puzzle solving (No random puzzles!). Rather the movie is somewhat similar to the Detective Conan series, but has more possible deduction solutions for its audience to perceive than the latter.
Animation is done by the same people who made the cut scenes in the Professor Layton series, and voice actors for the J version of the game returns to voice their respective characters for the movie.
Music is just perfect! A lot of recognisable tunes ;D - The revamped theme song is just sooo goood! It is definitely geared towards the fans of the series, don't hessitate to watch it if you are not firmiliar to the game as it does fill in the introductions to the characters and the like.
Overall a good movie 8/10
