The recipe is simple and that did the film decent. a middle - school boy as arbiter in a conflict, appearences, impressive fight scenes and the importance of values. sure, not remarkable animation. but one of many respecting conventions of genre, proposing a reasonable story for young public, remembering pieces from ~Neverending Story~ and other classic tales. in first part, the animation seems not brilliant. in the second, the story has more coherent. but not exactly convincing. because the fight of man against nature, theoretically noble, is not served by a story who seems a fruits basket. and Jun is so bizarre in the status of great hero , than something seems missing in profound sense. so, a nice film. but far to be memorable.
