Issue was it seem it couldn't make its mind up what it wanted to be.
I think it was my mistake choosing english dub for a Indonesian anime picture, the wide scenery of locations were incredible or even outstanding but the lip sinking god awful most of the time. Aswell as the frame rate for the character movements was off putting in action sequences and the voice actors were badly picked for matching of the important characters in the film also they where trying they trying so hard to add that japanese humour as specially that style final the script was but couldn't make it perfect because it was possible animated by a studio who seemed inspired by Japan's animation.
I did felt heart moved by the ending, really I felt really moved and felt a bit to cry.
