Formulaic and with terrible artwork., 29 September 2011
Author: matte160 from Sweden

Even if a anime misses the mark story wise, they usually can make up for it by painting up a beautiful world. This film however does not. The character designs are cheap and crude and while the backgrounds are usually pretty good, they're also at time very simplistic. For example, when the protagonist goes back in time to the city in the beginning and the city is attacked by demons, keep an eye on the background stick figures in one of the scenes where people are panicking. Look at the guy who falls into the river. Sheesh.

This anime is for kids who are used to cheap, mass produced Saturday cartoons. If you value quality then look elsewhere.
