Japanese movies sometimes feel far out (off?) for western audiences. Now this is either an exciting sentiment or something that some consider dreadful. Whether you like the weirdness or not will determine your attitude towards the movie itself. Having to win a race like the one in this movie can be considered anything but normal.

But you wouldn't like it any other way (or maybe you would, but I wouldn't). Not every idea lights up and I guess the big reveal can be considered a downfall by some or not a big surprise considering everything else that is going on or rather went on before that. I liked it, though I do realize it has its flaws even its inner logic and weirdness
