Awesome!!!
22 February 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is with out of doubt the best Anime movie i seen in years (Better then most Hollywood films.) This was awesome, for me this was a joy ride, that fill me with emotions and blown my mind. Since I am an artist in my own way I was speechless how detailed and beautiful was the drawings(architecture, character design and world design). Music was Great, Music definitely enhanced the film (Hopefully the soundtrack will come out soon, so I could add to my collection with other anime soundtracks). And Story was mind blowing, it dug deep in my mind even after leaving the cinema. It had great story (+) art and (+) music = Excellent film.

Fans of "Time of EVE" will definitely enjoy "Patema Inverted". I recommend for every one to see this film,
