Computer animation ruins an otherwise great story
13 August 2005 | by crazyophelia17See all my reviews

I had never even heard about this movie until Cartoon Network in Korea showed it as their Magatoon movie of the week. I was very impressed with the story - the characters are engaging, the story is complex enough to hold your interest without confusing you, and the artwork was superb.

I would have given the movie a nine, but for one thing. Every time the movie dealt with the characters, the animation was gorgeous. But every time I was shown images of the ships on the sea, it switched to a horrible, unbalanced, inartistic computer animation. It completed ruined the entire aesthetic of the movie for me.

Regardless, I do recommend this movie for all ani fans. It was, for me, a cast of unknowns, but I was completely impressed with the talents of all of them. Enjoy!
