That's the way it is. I prefer the original world after all. This one just doesn't suit me. I'm sorry, Nagato. I prefer the Nagato I've known up till now over you. Also, you look better without glasses.
What are you talking about?
Nagato. Return it to normal. Return yourself to normal. If you ask, I'll help you. You don't have to use that power to forcefully change things. It was fine the way it was.

I love a good bit of Japanses film and Anime. This one has great animation, direction and style which looks excellent and reminds us of why animation should not be overlooked as a medium for film. I really enjoyed the setup of the story and the direction. Using angles not normally associated with animation it created a nice contemporary feel that appealed to a more mature audience. However around the 1.30 point of a 2.40 hour movie I had to turn off, my interest and care for the characters had waned at an alarming gradient, I unfortunately found the clichés and a slowly developing and rather unexciting plot not enough to keep watching, a rarity for me.
I couldn't recommend it as a stand alone Anime movie it could quite put you off the genre. This is really one for the fans of the series (which I have never seen).
