A swashbuckling adventure
9 December 2015 | by jinsilverSee all my reviews

If you enjoy movies like My Neighbor Totoro or Kiki's Delivery Service, this film is for you. The only way this isn't a Ghibli movie is that it wasn't made by Studio Ghibli! Every bit of their whimsy, adventure, romance, and quiet moments of introspection comes through in spades here, and while light-hearted, it doesn't shy away from the darkness. It may be a movie aimed at kids but it has everything many adults would love too; even the animation felt like Ghibli's.

The two world premise is very well thought out and done here. I heartily recommend, I doubt anyone will be disappointed.

The English voice acting is pretty good, if not on par with the Japanese. Definitely watchable.
